Virus Removal – CryptoLocker

CryptoLocker-virusWARNING Gold Coast – Opening an Email from Auspost has infected 5 of our clients computers in the last 4 days. The email is normally titled “An agent was unable to redeem the parcel to your place for the reason: receiver was absent”.

Out of the 5 infected computers we have been able to remove the virus and recover files on all but one of them.

CryptoLocker is a file-encrypting ransomware, which will encrypt the personal documents found on victim’s computer using RSA-2048 key (AES CBC 256-bit encryption algorithm). CryptoLocker then displays a message which offers to decrypt the data if a payment is made within 96 hours, otherwise the data will be destroyed.
CryptoLocker will add the .7z.encrypted extension to all your images, videos and other personal documents.

The best thing to do if you are faced with the CryptoLocker Ransomeware virus is to shut down your computer immediately and give us a call. The longer you leave your computer on the more and more files and backups the Ransomeware will encrypt.

Custom Gaming Computers

Gaming computers can be very expensive to buy pre-built – most of the time you are paying a premium for brand name’s and products.
As gamers ourselves we love making gaming computers to suite someones particular needs without costing them a fortune.

gaming computer

When building a gaming computer there are a few things to consider –
– What games will be played on the machine? Some higher end games will require certain peices of hardware to make them run.
– Whats your budget – depending on how much you want to spend will depend on what pieces of hardware will and won’t be needed.
– Will the machine be used for other applications?

Once you know the types of games that will be played and the budget you have to spend all you need to do is talk to one of the dedicated staff at Cartridges N More and we can talk you through the different setups that might work for you.

We have made heaps of gaming computers, we stress test all machines and can even help you choose the best settings for your games so you can get the most from your rig. If you’ve ever considered buying a gaming computer make sure you talk to us at Cartridges N More and we guarantee to give you the best experiance for your needs and budget 🙂

Compatible Cartridges – Low On Price High In Quality

Compatible Cartridges have gotten better and better over the years and are now so good it would be silly to waste your hard earned money on a Genuine cartridge that can cost almost twice the price.

Compatible Cartridges come in all shapes and sizes and you can get one to fit any printer, ink or laser it dosn’t matter you can save some serious money simply by choosing the compatible option.

compatible cartridge

 

So what exactly is a compatible cartridge?

In inkjet or laser printing, a compatible cartridge refers to any cartridge that is not manufactured by the original manufacturer of your printer, but will still function and work in the same way that an original cartridge would. Many printer manufacturers will state that using any compatible cartridge in your printer will void the warranty – however, unless they can prove that the problem is a direct result of using the compatible cartridge your warranty cannot be void. Compatible cartridges have become popular with consumers because of the lower cost to purchase, compared to an original cartridge.

Simply put Compatible Cartridges can save you money without affecting your print quality.

How to print from your Smartphone or Tablet

wirelessprinting122Our mobile smartphones and tablets are becoming a major part of life and our approach to getting work done, it was only a matter of time we would be able to print directly from them.

Of course you can always email a document from your device directly to your desktop computer, and then print it from there. But the vast majority of printers currently available on the market have the capability of receive wireless print jobs from your iPhone or Android Device.

Basically, as long as your phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your printer, you can use AirPrint (iPhone) or Google Cloud Print (Android). Some of the latest HP and Canon Printers (MG5660) even allow you to connect your phone to a Wi-Fi hotspot generated by your printer in case you don’t have a sophisticated home Wi-Fi network (If for instance you use a USB Dongle to connect to the internet).

So what if your printer doesn’t have this fancy new Wi-Fi feature but you still want to take advantage of Wi-Fi printing? You still have a few options if you have a Wi-Fi router and your printer is connected to a computer. Simply share the printer through Windows or Mac OS X, the printer will the been available to anyone connected to the network. Print N Share and Printer Pro are another two different applications which also share your printer on your network.

These are just a few of the printing options available to you from your mobile and tablet devices. Just think, you can print from the comfort of your couch or even whilst waiting in traffic! Ask us in-store for more information.

 

It’s Christmas Time!!!

Compatible vs Genuine – The choice is yours

Will compatible ink and toner cartridges work just as well as genuine?Printer-Ink-Cartridges

Yes they will… compatible ink and toner manufacturers have developed their own solutions that work just as well as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) products… if not better.

They have had the opportunity to reverse engineer the OEM product and develop outstanding print and toner solutions to ensure the quality of the finished printed page is of the same exceptional quality you are familiar with.

Smart people have embraced non-genuine toner solutions! Why? Because they come with a guarantee to deliver the same print quality as OEM products, but at a fraction of the price. Quality guaranteed – every time.

I have been told never to use non-genuine, are compatibles guaranteed?

Because if you do, you will lose the opportunity to make significant savings. In today’s competitive marketplace, print machine manufacturers often use scare tactics to maintain their unrealistic profit margins, such as claiming the use of non-genuine toner cartridges will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

This simply isn’t true and, just like a car manufacturers can’t cancel your warranty because your choose a competitor to service your vehicle, you also have the right of choice when it comes to consumables for your home of office equipment.

“if a part is ‘non-genuine’ but is interchangeable with a ‘genuine part’, then the non-genuine part would still be seen as being fir for the appropriate purpose, and would therefor not void any manufacture’s guarantee or warranty. Such warranty can only be voided when the cartridge itself is faulty and causes the damage to the printer.”

Taken from pursuant to Schedule 2, Part 3-2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.

Armed with the latest technology and a comprehensive range of superior quality print solutions, compatible copier toner have been tried and proven worldwide.

People just like you are enjoying products as good as, if not better than, those manufactured by the OEM. With full technical support from the non-genuine consumables every bit a match for OEM products, non-genuine products offer a true quality print solution.
