How To Let Someone Use Your Computer Without Accessing Your Stuff

Someone Use Your Computer

By giving someone access to your computer, they can get to your saved passwords, email accounts and all files as well as more. Instead of worrying or getting anxious when giving someone your computer use your operating systems guest account feature.

 

Guest’s accounts are on all desktop operating systems including windows, Mac to chrome and other distributions. On windows the guest account is not enabled through default, so you have to go and search for it.

 

Why Use Guest Account

 

Using a guest account is a good idea especially for temporary guest users as they are only going to use it from time to time. The guest account which comes in the desktop gives your guest limited access which makes you at ease to leave them to it on your computer and let them do what they wish. They are able to browse the web without getting access to all your passwords, documents, emails, history and everything else.

 

With guests account you are not able to install software, connect hardware devices, change system settings or even make a password for the guest account.  The most harm guest accounts can do is shut down your computer.

 

A guest account allows the person to browse the web and use all the normal applications. This enables the person to feel like they are getting full access to the computer without you getting worried about personal information getting leaked.  Let’s say someone you trust fully wants to use your computer so because you trust them they won’t need to use a guest account. However, they go on and want to check their email, once on the web they try and sign in but your already signed in. They then have access to your emails because you forgot to sign out and now they need to.  You can avoid all of this by using a guest account.

 

How To Enable Guest Accounts

 

Windows:

Enabling the guest account in windows 7 and 8 is different than enabling it for windows 10. With windows 7 and 8 enabling the guest account is straight forward. All you need to do is from the desktop; go on the start menu and type “user accounts”, click this and then click “Manage another account”. Click “Guest.” If the guest account feature is disabled, click “Turn On.”

 

However, with windows 10 this feature is hidden. The reason for this is because Microsoft would like you to have data security and also because they want everyone to use official Microsoft accounts. By enabling the guest account requires admin access. Once enabled it will appear on a separate user account in the bottom left corner of the screen, anyone is able to log into this account after booting your computer. You are able to log out of your user account or use switch user to stay logged in and keep your programs open and account locked while the other person is using the guest account on your computer.

 

Once they have finished they can log out of the guest account. Remember their browsing history and logged in websites or any files or documents they may have will be accessible to any other person who uses the guest account.   Any guest user should log out of any websites they use or use the private browsing feature on the web within the guest account.

 

Mac:

On a Mac you can log in as a guest user by selecting Guest User account on the login screen. If this is not available you need to enable this.  You can do this by going on to the desktop, clicking on the system preference icon in the dock. Then click “users and groups”.  Once on this click onto the lock icon I the lower left corner, enter your admin password to access advanced functions.  Then click guest user and click on the check box which is next to “Allow guest users to connect to share folders”. Then log out and now you’ll have a guest user account accessible without a password. Once your guest logs out, all their data will be erased (unlike Windows).

Computer and laptops need special attention and care so they are able to function to their best. Mostly people always buy a new computer and never take good care of it also they never thought of computer maintenance. Taking good care of it doesn’t just mean cleaning the outer surface when it gets dusty. Taking proper care means making sure the inner and outer system are working effectively so they need to be examined.

 

The inner part of a computer consists of the software and anything related to software. The outer system consists of all the devices connected to the operating system. All the extra attachments such as cables, keyboard, scanner and printer which are all attached to the inner system are included. All these need to have extra attention and good  computer maintenance.

 

Computers Maintenance

Computers need to be maintained regularly from time to time. The system should be kept in a good state so it can perform well at all times and under all conditions. The first step towards this is to make sure your cables are kept in good condition and avoid any tangles and mess with other cables overlapping them. The less overlapping, the easier it is to make sure the cables stay in good condition.

 

After this you need to take time to clean your computer on a regular basis through either using a hand vacuum or duster to get rid of all the dust. Once the outside is looking good, you need to get working on keep the operating system in good condition.

 

A fully functional operating system is one which is always updated and is virus free and computer maintenance is done every month. The operating system needs to be updated regularly so all functions are working on top form. You should have antivirus software on your computer which is updated so it can remove any viruses found in your system. If you have a virus it can make the computer too slow and cause damages.

 

You should also transfer any data you have to an external hard drive and clear your computer of data regularly. This is because if your computer isn’t functioning well, you may lose your data so backing up on an external hard drives means all your data is saved.

Virus Attached To Email What To Do

PCKEY CALLOUT

Computer Repair Services

Virus Attached To Email What To Do

Having an email address for a long time which can incur many spam emails and virus attached to emails. The longer you have had your email address the quicker you realise not all of these spam emails are harmless. Email addresses are a great target for spam but also great targets for hackers as a way to send viruses and get all your personal information.

 

The popular way of spreading viruses via email is through infected attachments. They can do anything from installing new toolbars and pop-ups to deleting system files. Infected attachments can either macro viruses attached to emails that are embedded into software applications such as MS Word or executable programs.

Common Type Of Virus

The more common type of virus attachments to emails are executable files. These attachments come in file forms such as .com, .zip, .exe and many more. If the email address is an unusual one and it asks you to download file, think twice before going though with the download.

 

Infected emails can also give you a virus through making you click on a link to a website. Once on the website, you may be given a file virus through forced download. The most effective way to handle this is not to click any links that come from email addresses you don’t recognize. Further if you click on an infected link, you will need to have an antivirus program up and running.

 

Executable programs are more of a problem than macro viruses as with macro viruses MS word can repair the problem through their updates. Some antivirus programmes can detect and attack threats to MS word but it doesn’t mean they are safe just because they are updated.

 

Cyber criminals are experienced to embed VBA code to a word document. This can cause the program to execute the executable file without warning. This is more harmful if you have an old version on MS software. Just be careful with any MS word documents you are downloading.

 

Some viruses have been specifically developed to spread via emails which mean you have to be very careful of any unusual emails you come across. If you feel uneasy about an email don’t open it. If it seems unusual and comes with an attachment, you can always save it and scan it through your antivirus software first to be safe. Once clear you can download the attachment.

 

Having these attachments viruses can corrupt your system and once downloaded can be difficult to remove. If you are in this situation you need PcKey Callout to get you system up and running in top form and virus free.

Free Malware Removal Form Your Computer

PCKEY CALLOUT

Computer Repair Services

Free Malware Removal

 

The warning signs that your computer may be malware infested include your computer being slower than usual, suddenly loads of pop ups are appearing as well as other abnormal issues. Either you have free malware removal or Paid Malware removal.

 

All these signs show that your computer maybe infested with spyware even if you have got an antivirus installed. It could also either be a hardware issue but it is a good idea to know malware/viruses isn’t the cause of your computer acting up.  Below is a guide on what to do:

 

Safe Mode

The first thing you need to do is disconnect your computer from the internet and until our computer has be cleaned do not start it up again. This will stop malware from spreading any personal data they may have of yours.

 

If you think the problem with your computer is a malware infection you need to boot your computer to Safe mode. This will have the minimum programs and services required. If any malware wants to enter your computer when you turn it one, going on safe mode will prevent it. By entering into safe mode, it will make removing the infected files easier because they are not being used.

 

You might also realise that on safe mode your computer runs much faster. This is a sign that our computer does have a malware infection or you might just have a solid-state drive which makes it fast either way.

 

Delete Temporary Files

Once in safe mode you should delete any temporary files before running a virus scan. This will make the time of running the virus scan quicker as well as free up disk space and get rid of some malware. Just enter disk clean up in the search bar of your windows 10 and start running it.

 

Download Malware Scanners

Now the malware scanner is ready to do its job and normally running a scanner is enough to remove standard infections. If you had antivirus program running on your computer you still should use a different scanner for this check because your antivirus software did not detect the malware. No antivirus software can detect all the millions of types of malware and viruses 100% of the time.

 

Run A Scan With Malware Bytes

Once you have downloaded malware bytes (free malware removal), run the setup and follow instructions to install the program. Once the software has downloaded, open the program it will automatically activate a trial of the paid version. By default in 14 days it will go to the standard free version.

 

To run a scan you need to switch from the dashboard tab to the scan tab, keep the option set to threat scan and click start scan. Before the scan is run it will check for updates but still make sure this happens before you go ahead with the scan. The threat scan usually finds all the infections right away and it will take anywhere between 5 to 20 minutes but if you do a custom scan it could take anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

 

If you find that malware bytes has vanished once the scan starts and it won’t reopen then you probably have a root kit or a different type of serious infection which gets rid of scanners so they can’t remove the infection.

 

When your scan is finish, malware bytes will show you the results. If the scan has given you results that everything is clear but you still think there is a virus run a custom scan. If the scan does find infections it will say what they are when the scan has finished. You can then click the remove button which will get rid of some infections. It may even request to restart your computer so the removal can happen which you should follow.

 

If you are still finding problems after the infections have been found and removed, then you might need to contact a professional like PcKey Callout where an experienced engineer will come and remove all viruses from your computer.

Computer Repairs On Site VS In Shop

PCKEY CALLOUT

Computer Repair Services

Computer Repairs inshop vs Onsite

Computer repairs On site VS in shop There seem to be two opposite chains of thoughts when it’s time to choose from running computer maintenance or consulting business from home. Many people believe in order to good work and make the profit you need to take the customers computer to your shop. However, there are many computer engineers who repair computers at their customer’s home and don’t bring any work back home with them.

The Best Way To Select A Computer Repair

The best thing to start off doing is to write down all the pro’s and con’s of both situations and see how they better each other.  The following mainly shows the most important factors thought about when considering either scenario.

Onsite Computer Repair

                             Pro’s

                           Con’s

You are completely focused on the task and so will be able to repair and finish the task sooner. There could be other distractions which you’re not used to such as pets, kids and various other noises
Less liability concerns. You can’t research solutions halfway through the repair.
Once repaired, you’re finished. The customer could be looking over your shoulder the whole time which could be very intimidating and you can’t concentrate.
Customers are more at ease when they can see what is happening to their computer in front of them.  When the computer is running a scan, update or clean-up you can’t do anything other than to sit and wait.
Customers are more content as the engineer comes when it’s convenient for the customer.
If you need to ask any questions regarding the customer’s computer, they are right there so you can ask and then get on with the repair with no distractions.

 

In shop Computer Repair

                             Pro’s

                                Con’s

Less Distractions. Increase travel, pick up and then go back to drop off.
There can be more than one person working on the same repair. If you need additional information about the computer, the only contact is a phone which can sometimes take a long time to reach the customer.
You can work on more than one system at a time. Liability is a huge worry.
There is less pressure as you are able to work at your own pace. The problem could be related to the customers home such as network set up, the location of the computer which then you cannot get access to.
You are able to access all your tools and equipment.  You need to have suitable transport to carry all pieces of equipment.
It makes it easier to procrastinate and leave the job for later.

 

To conclude to make the right decisions suitable for you, you need to look at all of the above and decide what best adapts to your situation. You need to think about what kind of work you specifically want to do if you want to mostly do hardware repairs, software troubleshooting, data recovery or training. Some of these repairs are better completed as an onsite repair whereas others require special equipment or intense focus which can happen In your own shop.

 

You need to think about who you want your customers to be and where from. If you only want customers from your immediate area its less hassle to pick and drop off repairs. On the other hand, if your client base is larger, its time saving if your work onsite.

 

Finally, you need to make sure you have enough room to accommodate many systems. You will need a full working system with power, monitor and connection setup. Also, make sure your vehicle is suitable with transporting computers.

Best Free Antivirus – Which One?

PCKEY CALLOUT

Computer Repair Services

 

There are so many different types, versions, brands of Best Free antivirus software out there. It’s hard deciding which one is right for you and your computer laptop and mobile.

 

To start off with you need to find out what antivirus solution works with your computer’s operating system. Any brand of computer/laptop can catch a virus or malware even if you have a Mac.

 

When deciding what Best Free antivirus system/software/programme to get, you need to look at the prices as well as the features. When looking for anti-virus software’s you will see that many of them are offered through subscription where you either pay annually or monthly. With having them subscription based you are able to access all the important software updates so the more you can pay, the better protection you get.

Home and business Best free antivirus

Some Home and business do have a Best free antivirus download option, but keep in mind that this will not have the same level of protection, also with the free versions they do not run effective scans and so we would recommend spending bit of money on a proper protection software, not the Best Free Antivirus. You may find some of the cheaper programmes will offer the same features as the more expensive ones, but their database of viruses won’t be up to date so it’s not worth spending the money.

 

Another issue you should consider and ask yourself is what and where you use your device for. You need to ask yourself if your software protects you with online banking, with webcam and external devices and also does it have a secure protection with your router?

 

Your Anti-virus software should contain the following features:

Feature

Description

Exploit Blocker

This will block attacks which are designed to attack the antivirus detection

Anti Spam

This will help keep unnecessary

and unwanted email from your mailbox

Anti Virus and AntiSpyware

Complete protection against all types of online and offline hacks

Personal firewall

This will stop hackers from having to access you your computer as well as stay invisible to other people when using public WI-Fi

Webcam protection

Getting a notification when someone tries to access your webcam

Home network protection

Check your home router for any traffic

Anti-phishing

This will help stops attempts to gain sensitive information such as passwords, banking details from fake websites

Script based

Stop any script based malware attacks

Secure data

Keep your data safe on your laptop or USB with secure encryption

Banking and payment protection

Automatic protection on online banking websites

Keep your money secure with safe browsers

Botnet protection

Protect against any botnet malware attacks

Anti-theft

This will help you find your laptop when stolen

 

You may think you don’t need any antivirus installed on your laptop because you have a Mac. This is not true, although they are less likely to have a virus because of how they are built. However, there are more windows than Mac’s so they are less targeted but they are coming to the rise so having protection will be worth it.

 

Once you have installed your paid antivirus software, you cannot just leave it. It doesn’t matter how expensive it is you need to do the security updates and Antivirus updates on your computer regularly. You need to make sure your software updates and be careful with suspicious email, websites, and downloads.

6 Common Computer Problems

 

Computer problems can be really frustrating and if it’s got more than one trying to differentiate between which one is a software problem and which one is hardware related. Most hardware and software problems have similar symptoms.

 

Below are some common computer problems and the easy way on how to differentiate if they are hardware or software related.

 

Failing to boot-

If you turn on your computer but it decides not to run then this has something to do with the hardware. The issue could be as simple as a loose connection within the computer or it could be something much more complicated such as a problematic hardware. On the other hand if your computer does start but begins to fail when booting up then this could be either a software or hardware issue. When this is the issue you should do a reinstallation of the operating system. If this does not help, then it means there is an hardware problem. A corrupted CPU could be the reason behind not booting at all. If your CPU is overheating it could lead to a blue screen when it is under load. A damaged power supply could be hard to recognize. A faulty power supply happens when there is too much power being sent to components and it can cause damage to it and overtime causing malfunction. Once the power supply is dead the computer won’t turn on when pressing the power button.

 

Blue screen problems-

This is a sign that there is some malfunction in the hardware or poorly programmed drivers. If you come across a blue screen problem you need to check all the recent installed hardware or installed drivers. If you find there is no problem with the drivers, the problem could be with the graphic card, RAM or motherboard.

 

Corrupted files-

If your files begin to become corrupt then the hard drive is the problem. If you find that it is taking a long time to open because there could be some virus or malware attack. You need to do a full scan and if you find there are no viruses it means the hard drive is the problem and is at fault.

 

Missing DLL File-

DLL Stand for Dynamic-Link Library (DLL) contain the information for your windows on how to do operations also they are skilled of clutching code and multiple procedures. Sometimes you lose the DLL files or damages it. When your computer trying to do certain operation then that specific DLL file is missing or Corrupted. then you cannot do anything on your computer. If you are facing message for DLL files. you can restore your computer to make it up and running.

 

Computer crashes randomly-

The RAM is the problem which could result in crashes, blue screen or file corruption. The data which is written on the RAM is for short term storage and with a fault RAM the storage could come to incorrect value.

 

Overheating-

To make sure your CPU does not overheat and if the fan is faulty in the computer it could result in overheating as well as cause CPU or graphic card problems. If there is it will result in computer crashing and not booting in the end.

Repairing a software problem can be much easier than a hardware issue bit with good reliable computer repair services fixing either software or hardware will be as simple as each other.

Computer Keeps Restarting

PCKEY CALLOUT

Computer Repair Services

Computer Keeps Restarting

 

Computer Keeps Restarting

 

If you find your computer keeps restarting a lot it could be fixed in software but there are many different things which can cause the system to crash and keep rebooting in Window 7, Window 8.1 and Window 10 etc. More advanced operating systems do not produce BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and instead windows will restart the computer and hope for the best. The assumption is if something important within the operating system failed, doing a reboot would fix it. This is sometime true, however if a computer is having hardware problems a simple reboot may not work. You should isolate the source first to start fixing the computer restart problem.

 

To fix a computer restart problem do the following:

 

  • Switch off the automatically restart option

 

  • Use Hardware/Software Manual to analyse your files which are BSOD files (Blue Screen of Death)

 

  • Restart in Safe Mode

 

  • BSOD’S are caused through driver issues, however hardware errors can also cause this so be sure to check your hard drive and memory.

 

Automatic Restart

 

if you find your computer keeps restarting, turn off the automatic restart by right clicking on My computer and choosing properties. Below the advanced tabs, look for Startup and recovery below the setting find and uncheck the automatically restart option. Once your system crashes and you receive a blue screen error which will have some information you can use to find a fix for your restart issue.  You can even write all the errors down and contact us at PCKEY CALLOUT for computer repair.

 

Safe Mode

 

Restart your computer and press F8 from your keyboard to enter into safe mode with networking. Using safe mode means you are able to uninstall any new installed software which may be causing the crash. You are also able to update drivers, do system restore and scan and remove any malware which could be found causing the restart to happen.  By rung the software in safe mode for a long time, it shows the problem is related to software. If this isn’t the case and it still keeps restarting/shutting down it means it is a hardware problem.

 

Scan Your Memory If Computer Keeps Restarting

 

You are able to run utilities in Windows which can scan your memory and hard disk for errors. If you find you have a faulty RAM, this can cause big problems with your system.

 

To scan your RAM you will need third party software. You need download and burn the image to a CD or disk and reboot to that drive to start the scan. You might need to change the way your PC start in the BIOS. If it’s a CD go into the BIOS setup to and make sure the CD ROM is the first boot sequence option. If you’re running Vista, you can access their RAM scanner by going to the Administrative Tools area of the Control Panel. Within that section, look for the Memory Diagnostic Tool. Different Operating system i.e Window 7, 8.1 and 10 have different options.

 

To check errors, scan your HDD by opening My Computer and right clicking the C drive. Choose properties and under the tools tab, look for error checking area and click the check now button. Check both the options and press ok. Then the computer will run a in-depth scan the next time the system boots.

 

If you find your computer is still restarting, you can try flashing the BIOS. If you find a known flaw with hardware on a machine which software can fix, BIOS can update which is issued by a manufacturer. Contact the manufacturer of the computer or the motherboard for details on how to flash the BIOS.

 

After this if it is still restarting, you can try and replace the power supply, then replace the motherboard. Replacing the power supply is the cheapest and easiest thing to replace and is sometimes the source of the problem of reboots and shutdowns. Don’t buy the cheapest power supply you can as that is not always the best choice. Choose a name brand which you recognise and get the same voltage or greater.

 

If this doesn’t solve it contact PcKey Callout. An engineer will be come to your home and take a look and find a solution. PcKey Callout Solve all nature of Computer Problems.

If you have a windows 7 computer you can go to your control panel, system and then to security. Click on backup and restore and enable and configure a backup schedule. Some good external hard drives you should back up on would be from brands such as Western Digital etc

 

  • Disk cleanup: Start off by going to Start-Programs-System tools and click on Disk Cleanup. Then Windows will have a look at your temporary internet files, recycle bins and other files which are safe to delete from your computer. You can schedule a Disk cleanup you need to; press start- programs-accessories-system tools-task scheduler. Press action and then create a basic task. Enter in a name, click next and choose weekly for. After this set a time for the Disk cleanup to happen and then click next. Press start program and then after click browse and then enter ‘cleanmgr.exe’ into the name box. Click open, next and you’re finished.

 

  • Full virus scan: Even though it is useful to have a virus scanner which updates daily and provides on spot protection, you should also run a full virus scan once a week.

 

Schedule: Monthly Computer Maintenance

 

  • Disk Defragmenter: This reorganises your data from your hard drive in your computer so it can access files faster.

 

  • Clean your computer: This all depends on where your computer is located but you should try and vacuum around the area of your computer. You should also check the internal and external fans to make sure they are hair and dusts free which if not removed can cause heat to build up in your computer.

 

  • Software Update: Majority software will automatically remind you when an update is ready to be downloaded. The updates normally consist of security fixes which should be installed right away.

 

  • Hardware Diagnostics: Run Check Disk monthly to check for impending computer hard drive failure. Right-click the C: drive and click Properties, click the Tools tab, and then the Check now button within the Error-checking section.

 

Schedule: Annual Computer Maintenance

 

System Recovery: No matter how hard you try, your computer will start to slow down. If you don’t have a Windows installation disk, you should then burn the recovery disks for your computer and put them somewhere you will remember. If you have a Dell, HP, Sony VAIO or Acer computer to repairs, they will have a service to create these disks. Use this to wipe and restore your computer to factory settings at least once annually. First backup your data and then do this and your computer will start running like new.
