Q How do I close the scary full-screen virus warnings?

Those hoaxes are all full-screen and hard to exit--NEVER call the fake phone number. Press F11 to exit full screen mode, and then close the browser. Or use Alt-F4 to close the browser. Or use the keyboard method to go to task manager with Ctrl-Alt-Delete, and then close the browser. If all else fails, turn the computer off by holding the power button until it shuts down, around 8 seconds.

Q Is free WiFi at a restaurant safe?

In most developed countries, it is generally safe to connect to free WiFi if it has a password to get in, has encryption shown as WPA3, and is run by the business you are in, and that's whom you get the password from. Once you log in, everybody on the network has unique connections, and you can't see each other's web pages or logins.

If the password is blank, then no, your logins can be captured as they pass through the network. If it's an older encryption type (WEP or WPA), no, it's not safe--those systems are old and broken.

Q How much does a power supply repair cost?

Call me and tell me what type of computer it is. Standard power supplies in desktop computers are a stock item, but they'll vary in price based on what video cards are installed, if any. For smaller computers, I can get replacement power supplies, usually in under a week.

Q How do I move files from old to new computers?

If you're using OneDrive and a Microsoft account, just sign into the new computer with that account, and Microsoft will move over anything saved in OneDrive, plus your emails. For everyone else, moving data is routine, usually a flat-rate service, call for pricing. It's possible even if the old computer no longer runs.

Shareware Professionals

The ASP salutes Jerry Stern for his dedication, hard work, and expertise. The organization could not hope to find anyone more talented and uniquely qualified to fill the role of ASPects editor. This small tribute includes a sincere thank you and long overdue praise for Jerry’s work on behalf of the ASP.

Very Satisfied

Recall that you recently performed diagnostic and repair work on our Dell desktop, as it was running slow and would not connect to the internet. It seems to be working fine now; actually much better and faster than it has for quite some time. First, I really appreciate your responding and coming out to our house in Towson on short notice and so quickly. Second, I want to thank you for the fine work you did and for your excellent advice ! Finally, your fee is reasonable, considering the value you provide for your expert services, and I do appreciate that. I will certainly recommend you and your business to others.

Very Happy Customer

Since 1992 I have been a customer of Science Translations and, of course, I have been extremely satisfied with our business relationship. I had only one return in 30 years and he immediately rectified it. Besides me, he also had my former parish and my current parish as very happy customers. He knows my computer needs better than I do and if I am thinking about a bad investment, he advises me, even if it means losing a sale. I am considerably more comfortable buying from him than from any major retailers and his prices are competitive. You can’t go wrong with Science Translations.
