  • What can i do if i have someone’s ip?

    Best answer: You generally can't do much except from what the other answers have said about locating it to the ISP. However it is possible, though not probable, that you could hack a device on the network. This can be an IOT device such as a security camera, a smart thermostat or other smart devices. The router could also be vulnerable and can be compromised. Many new tech devices are susceptible to attacks as they have direct access to the internet through the router and they open ports in order to communicate with the internet. This can mean that an IP address and a port may be the only info that is needed to attack the device. Some devices even have default passwords that people don't change when setting up the device and can easily be compromised. All of this is said for informational purposes only. If you do hack into a device know that you could be prosecuted.

  • Whats the best antivirus for windows 10?

    Best answer: Hello and thank you for your question!

    This is a tricky question because answers will differ depending on opinion and what kind of security you need.
    Basic security is already pre-installed on all Windows 10 PCs via Windows Defender. Windows Defender has gotten a lot better over the years and is updated monthly by Microsoft to include more and more security definitions (this is what lets the AV program know the difference between harmless files and malware!)

    If you're looking for more comprehensive protection it'll cost you, both financially and performance-wise.
    This is when people start to compare AV providers depending on how active it is in the background vs how much protection it offers. The most protective AVs usually hog the most resources (This is not always the case, most bad AVs hog resources while not protecting much).

    I would look into how much protection you NEED and base your choices on that. As far as my opinion(Not GeekSquad/Best Buy), I generally use Bitdefender or Webroot as my AntiVirus and Malwarebytes as AntiMalware. There is a difference between Anti Virus and Anti Malware and it's good practice to have both! Sorry that I couldn't name drop one "Stop All" best AV, unfortunately it's not that simple and I hope my answer helped demystify AVs enough to help you make the right choice in protecting your data!

  • Why does this window keep popping up and how do i fix it? i'm aware of its a trojan or malware threat but it always pops up.?

    Best answer: You need to remove the malware while in the SAFE MODE. Safe Mode only allows the Win 10 files to boot up and nothing else, but you can run your antivirus and/or anti-malware while in the Safe Mode. You have to manually put it into Safe Mode and then you have to manually take it out of Safe Mode. Give it a try ... here's how! <<<<<Win 10 SAFE MODE
    Win 10 is a little odd because you have to go through a short process to put the computer into the Safe Mode and to get it back out of the Safe Mode. Here’s how to do both processes. This works in Win 8, Win 8.1, and Win 10.
    To Get Into Safe Mode:
    1. Right click at Start button
    2. Click on RUN
    3. In the resulting box, type in the term msconfig and hit enter.
    4. The msconfig window will appear. At the top of the window click on the Boot tab.
    5. In the next window put a check mark in the “Safe Boot” box.
    6. Click Apply, then click OK
    7. Click Restart. The computer will go through a normal looking boot and you will have to provide your password if you use one. The desktop will eventually show up with a somewhat abnormal looking Desk Top with all icons skewed left and will say SAFE MODE in all four corners of the screen.
    NOTE: If you were to reboot the computer, it will boot/reboot continually into the Safe Mode until you take the steps below to change the settings for a "normal” boot up to your desktop.
    To Get Out Of Safe Mode:
    8. Right click at Start button
    9. Click on RUN
    10. In the resulting box, type in the term msconfig and hit enter.
    11. The msconfig window will appear. At the top of the window click on the Boot tab.
    12. UNCHECK the “Safe Boot” box.
    13. Click Apply then click OK
    14. Click on Restart to boot the computer into its’ normal mode.
    NOTE: Once the Restart (reboot) is completed and the computer boots into the “normal” mode it will continue to boot into the normal mode each time you reboot. You are required to use the getting into the Safe Mode process(s) to get into it and out of it. >>>>> Run your protection software while in the Safe Mode!!! Hope this helps.

  • What happens when someone steals your identity?

    Best answer: It basically means that they have all of your personal information such as Social Security number, credit card numbers, drivers license number, address (past and present), mother's maiden name, employment information, etc... This allows them to fraudulently open up lines of credit in your name and buy whatever they can. Meanwhile you're getting the bills and the bad credit.
