Today EasiPC joined the Ruckus Wireless Partners Program.
“Schools, school districts, colleges, and universities are all challenged to move up to higher-speed, more reliable Wi-Fi. They want strong security, killer coverage, and connections that don’t drop. They also need Wi-Fi to go to places where no Ethernet cabling has gone before, such as common areas, temporary classrooms, on-campus housing, and every corner of the campus. But for most educational institutions, tigher budgets and busy IT staffs make the transition impossible.
Fortunately, Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi is the first technology that gives schools a cost-effective wireless infrastructure that’s in a class by itself. It provides robust, complete coverage and summa-cum-laude performance—at an affordable price.“

We have seen, mainly on staff laptops, viruses or malware being downloaded inadvertently after receiving a message on the screen telling the user they have a virus. The media has recently coined the term for these pop ups as SCAREWARE or ROGUEWARE. They usually manifest themselves in the following ways:
