Apple devices don’t get viruses? :-) ;-) lol lmao

The good news: iPhones and iPads are largely immune to computer viruses and DO NOT need anti-virus software. The bad news: Apple computers such as iMac, Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air and Mac Mini ARE NOT IMMUNE to Computer Viruses and a top quality and FREE anti-virus program such as AVG For Mac is a necessity. Back in June 2015 we warned all our Apple owners to beware of viruses on their Apple computers. in our post Apple Computers do not get Malware and Computer Viruses (Urban Myth) we now see at least one Apple computer per day (iMac, Macbook, Mac Mini) with computer viruses and malware either slowing down the computer or stopping it from starting or operating properly. Our posts shows you how to protect yourself from such viruses and what to do if you suspect you have one. Most viruses are designed to target Microsoft Windows computers, but there is one type of particular type of viruses called the CRYPTOLOCKER virus that targets both Windows and Apple computers and is NOT fixable without paying a ransom. In July we warned, OPENING AN EMAIL FROM AUSTRALIA POST HAS HAD 3 CLIENTS IN 3 DAYS LOSE ALL THEIR DATA TO THE CRYPTOLOCKER VIRUS. In August we posted, CRYPTOLOCKER Virus still a threat and very active. Please beware and we have heard of incidents almost daily (including one last Friday). The IT Guys were recently called out to a firm of lawyers who had all computers, servers and backup drives encrypted by the cryptolocker virus. As well as having to pay the ransom of $800, they had IT costs of $1,000 and had to close the office for a day. Apple Computers are NOT immune to Computer Viruses, please beware and take precautions as mentioned in our various posts.

Mac or PC, Apple or Microsoft, we swing both ways

Mac or PC, Apple or Microsoft, we swing both ways Whether your problem is with an Apple Mac or a PC or laptop running Microsoft Windows or even a Linux server, the IT Guys have the experience in configuring, troubleshooting and repairing individual devices or hybrid networks. The IT guys can advise, consult and even purchase Apple or Windows devices and computers and help you set them up for home or office use (or both) but if you would rather do this yourself, here is a guide on what you need to consider before making any further purchases. What is best? Apple or Microsoft? How do I choose? The million dollar question 🙂 When you buy Apple you are purchasing the hardware (Macbook, iMac, iPhone, iPad) plus the operating system (iOS) which are designed to work perfectly together. Up until the introduction of the Microsoft Surface, Microsoft was a software designer and Operating System provider (Windows XP, Vista, 7,8,10, Office, Server) designed to work on all major hardware (IBM, HP, Dell, Toshiba, Acer, Asus etc), they even design and sell software for Apple devices (Office for Mac) but with the supply of their own hardware, Microsoft are moving ever closer to the Apple concept. As to which product is better or represents the best value for money, the answer is complete conjecture. Apple products may appear to be more expensive on initial purchase but as Apple supply and update their operating systems for FREE over a 10 year period there would be little difference in price if you had to upgrade your Windows OS, once or twice. However, with the launch of the New Apple iPhone 6S at over a thousand dollars, commentators are speculating that Apple are deliberately putting prices up to make their products more “elitist” to cater for the burgeoning Chinese Middle Class market. Not only are Apple products well made but no they have also become a status-symbol. How do I choose between Apple and Microsoft The simplest advice is to stick with what you know. If you have always used Microsoft products on a PC, then stick with Windows and Android devices. Unless you are prepared for a certain amount of self-training and angst we would advise against Windows user moving to Apple or Apple users moving to Windows devices. Q1. What kind of Smartphone do you have? As we become more and more mobile-centric, the choice of our smartphones or hand-held devices becomes  a decisive factor when choosing a brand or operating system of our laptop or desktop devices. Having an Android smartphone restricts you to using other devices using either Android, Chrome or Windows. iPhones and iPads will happily work with Apple iOS devices or Windows computers.     Q2.  Do you have other devices and computers you wish to share data with or information between It’s rare these days that we only own one computing device. It is not uncommon that we have a laptop or PC plus a smartphone and/or tablet device such as an iPad. Once you start using more than one device and wish to share an address book, music or files between devices and possible in the cloud, life becomes more complicated and choices have to be made.   iTunes does not work natively with Android Devices Although Apple iTunes is available for iOS and Windows platforms, you cannot easily play your itunes music on an Android phone or device. Apple have said this will be available in the future but as of September 2015 it is only available via exporting/importing and/or a number of Android apps.     Sharepoint & Onedrive If you are a user of Microsoft’s cloud sharing products SharePoint and Onedrive be wary of using them on Apple devices as doing so is not straightforward and does not work in the same way as on Microsoft platform’s. Outlook for Mac 2011 supported Sharepoint as a drive such as in iCloud, Google Drive or Dropbox but this was removed in Office for Mac 2016 much to our dismay.   Microsoft Outlook & Apple Calendaring Although these work well together on a Windows PC, they don’t work so well together on an Apple especially if you use iOS/iCloud calender apps which are iCal compliant. Adding Calendar entries on Outlook for the Mac using an Apple device does not sync with iCloud!! However, if you use Outlook on a Windows PC, syncing to iCloud is seamless and works very well. Another example of Apple and Microsoft’s petty rivalries.   Printing from Tablet’s and Smartphones Printing from iPhone or iPad In the early days the only printers an iPad or iPhone could print to were those labeled as AirPrint, your old faithful printer may not be able to be printed directly to from one of these devices. AirPrint is an Apple technology that helps you create full-quality printed output without the need to download or install drivers. To use an AirPrint printer with your Wi-Fi network, make sure your printer is connected to the same network as your iOS device or Mac. Then select the AirPrint printer from your favorite app and you’re ready to print. Apple authorised AirPrint Printers Many printer manufacturers are also bring out their own Apps (these can be found on the Apple App store) Printing from Android smartphones. To print from an Android smartphone is slightly different by installing and launching  on your Android phone or tablet after downloading it from the Android App store. It uses Google Cloud Print which works with most printers. But, for the best experience, a Cloud Ready printer is recommended. These types of printers can directly connect to the Internet and don’t need a computer for it to work. Google keeps a growing list of Cloud Ready printers here.   Cost of Repair, Maintenance & Resale Value,  Apple v Windows Where Apple and Windows/Android Computers and devices really shows their differences is the cost of maintenance and repair of their respective products. Apple Computers, devices and phones tend to hold their resale value […]

Your Apple Mac has a Virus (this is NOT a joke)

Apple Computers do not get Malware and Computer Viruses (Urban Myth) Apple iMac’s, PowerBooks and devices running iOS are just as prone to Malware and Computer Virus infection as are Windows computers At the IT Guys, we are seeing an increasing amount of Apple Macs coming through the door with problems not that dissimilar to that of their Windows counterparts.     We scan EVERY device for viruses irrespective of it’s OS (Operating system) and in 90% of cases the Apple iMac, Macbook, Macbook Pro and Macbook Air, have been found to contain known malware such as Spyware and Trojan’s. Just because a Mac has a virus does not mean that it is going to be slowed down, spamming your friends with emails or producing porn popup windows. The viruses may well be dormant as they as mostly designed to take advantage of the security flaws in the Microsoft Windows Operating systems. Having said that, with the ever increasing market share of Apple OS, the criminals that design the malware are increasingly targeting and infect Mac iOS or Mac OS Do you need to install an Anti Virus product for a Mac? The bad news is “Yes” but make sure you use one that is specific for Mac iOS or Mac OS Installing a windows version of Norton’s on a Mac will corrupt the operating system. The Good News is there is an excellent FREE one in AVG Anti-Virus for Mac click on the link to install it. It’s NOT a FREE-Trial, it’s a genuine FREE Anti Virus from our friends at AVG. How to minimise the chances of a Mac getting a virus? Apple bring out security updates for Mac OS all the time. Make sure you install the latest patches and security updates as soon as they become available. To learn how to tell if your Mac needs updating, see the following article. See Update OS X and App Store apps on your Mac Is your Apple Mac, iMac or MacBook running slow? How to speed up your Mac How to update Apple Mac, iMac or MacBook   Beware of the following Fake Programs claiming to be legitimate Anti Virus Programs Do not install MacKeeper or iAnti-Virus or CleanMyMac: See this User Tip: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3022 Do not be tricked by ‘SCAREWARE’ Do not be tricked by ‘scareware‘, such as pop-ups on your browser, that tempts computer users to download fake anti-virus software that may itself be malware. Once installed, the software may steal data or force people to make a payment to register the fake product. Examples include MacKeeper and iAntivirus, but there are others. Also, beware of MacSweeper and MACDefender** (also goes under the name of MacProtector, MacGuard, MacSecurity or MacShield): These are malware that mislead users by exaggerating reports about spyware, adware or viruses on their computer in an attempt to obtain payment for an application that does nothing that free utilities do not also offer, and in many cases will also mess up your system. *Malicious software dubbed MACDefender takes aim at users of the Mac OS X operating system by automatically downloading a file through JavaScript. But users must also agree to install the software, leaving the potential threat limited. **(This malware is not to be confused with MacDefender, the maker of geocaching software including GCStatistic and DTmatrix. The company noted on its site it is not affiliated with the malware.) Beware of fake ADOBE sites Mac users should always obtain their copy of Adobe Flash Player directly from Adobe’s official website and to disable the “Open ‘safe’ files after downloading” option in Safari Preferences/General to avoid automatically running files downloaded from the Internet. Also, do not turn on Java in Safari Preferences/Security. Few websites use Java. Javascript is something entirely different and should be left active. Avoid going to suspect and untrusted Web sites Torrent, Gaming, FREE Software and Porn sites should especially be avoided. Check out what you are downloading. Mac OS X asks you for you administrator password to install applications for a reason! Only download media and applications from well-known and trusted Web sites, i.e. the developers’ own web sites or the Apple App Store. If you think you may have downloaded suspicious files, read the installer packages and make sure they are legit. If you cannot determine if the program you downloaded is infected, do a quick Internet search and see if any other users reported issues after installing a particular program. Avoid Peer-to-peer sharing applications. Download torrents (such as the now defunct LimeWire and PirateBay) supplying pirated software, movies etc are hotbeds of potential software issues waiting to happen to your Mac. Everything from changing permissions to downloading trojans and other malicious software can be acquired from using these applications.

Mac Repairs – Apple Macintosh Repairs

Mac Repairs required in Perth? Is your mac not starting or behaving  poorly? The IT Guys specialise in repairing all Apple Computers (Macintosh, Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, Mac Mini or iMac) in Perth and Western Australia, with all repairs carried out by Apple Certified Technicians. We do not repair iPhones,  iPads, iPods or iWatches but can assist you with setting them up (configuration), re-installing, updating, connecting to iCloud etc. If your Apple Computer (Mac, Macintosh, Macbook, Macbook Air, Mac Mini or iMac) is slow, non-responsive, not starting or is not behaving or performing as it once we may be able to fix that problem In all cases we cannot do anything or quote prices until we have ‘Tested & Assessed’ your device in our workshop. You will need to bring or deliver your device to our workshop at 315 Rokeby Road, Subiaco between the hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday-Friday: 9AM to 5PM Saturday: CLOSED Sunday: CLOSED No appointment is necessary. Please note a $66 non-refundable ‘Test & Assess’ fee will need to be paid on leaving your device with us. We need to have your device for a minimum of 1 business day to complete a thorough ‘Test & Assess’ process. Upon completion of our ‘Test & Assess’ we will contact you and inform you of our findings. If we assess the repair will take longer than 30 minutes and may involve new hardware or software, we will quote you on the costs and request your permission to proceed. If we can repair within 30 minutes, or you decide not to proceed with a repair, or we cannot repair the device, there will be no more to pay, and you can collect your device during our business hours. We may be able to make an onsite visit to your home or business; however, an additional “Call-Out” charge applies for travelling time to you and back to our workshop, plus the $66 ‘Test & Assess’ fee. We highly recommend bringing your Computer equipment to our office or posting it to us, as this will save you time and money. Purchasing New Computer and Transferring programs and data Quite often we may advise our clients that their Apple Computer (Macintosh, Macbook, Macbook Air, Mac Mini or iMac)  will be cheaper to replace, rather than repair. We do not sell new Apple equipment but will guide you in the choices available and from where they can be purchased. However, we can assist you with the setup, transfer of data and programs from your old Mac to the new one. Common Apple Hardware Issues Common Apple hardware problems that we encounter include: Hard-Drive (HDD) drive issues – (especially if over 3 years old) HDD’s can be replaced or can be upgraded to a Solid-State-Drive (SSD) for more speed and reliability and a 5 year warranty. Prices start around $300. If you see an image such as the above and the Mac does does not progress, start or go away, it is most likely a Hard-Drive (HDD) ,OS (Operating System) or Mother-Board issue. The only way to be certain is to bring the computer to us for “Test & Assess” purposes. How to Fix Apple’s Spinning-Wheel-Of Death (SWOD) If you are experiencing, the Mac Spinning Wheel of Death (SWOD)? AKA “Spinning rainbow pinwheel” , “Spinning ball”, “Spinning wheel”, “Spinning beach ball” (as shown above) this can be due to a number of issues, click here for likely causes and some solutions RAM (Memory) issues RAM or Memory can be replaced or upgraded to 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB or even more depending on the model. As long as your computer has a minimum of 4GB (ideally 8GB) this should not slow your computer down unless you are working with graphically intense programs such as image or video editors. Power Supply (PSU) Issues The power supply component of the computer can fail due to age, or after a power surge or lightening strike. This is often evident when no lights, fan or flickering occur when trying to turn the device on. The PSU can be replaced on iMacs under 5 years old by Apple. Older models have to be fixed with second-hand parts, usually from overseas. However, second hand parts come without warranty and may last a few days or continue to work for years. The PSU on Macbook’s are built into the mother-board and require a full motherboard replacement which is not usually an economic solution. Graphics Card (GPU) Issues Lines on the screen can indicate a failed GPU. These can be replaced by Apple if under 5 years old by Apple. Older iMac models have to be fixed with second-hand parts, usually from overseas. However, second hand parts come without warranty and may last a few days or continue to work for years. The GPU on Macbook’s are built into the mother-board and require a full motherboard replacement which is not usually an economic solution. Motherboard Issues If the mother-board (main circuitry board) or processor have failed they can be replaced by Apple if under 5 years old.  Otherwise we advise the computer will be uneconomical to repair. Second hand motherboards from overseas (USD 400 – 500) are available, but these are “refurbished” boards by non-apple suppliers and there is no guarantee that they will work initially or after a few months, so we recommend NOT replacing a failed motherboard but purchasing a new computer. LCD Screen Issues These can be replaced by Apple if under 3 years old or we can source second-hand parts, usually from overseas for older models. However, second hand parts come without warranty. On Apple Macbooks it is not simply a matter of replacing the LCD, the whole top-case needs to be replaced and this can often be expensive. Email your serial number to support@itguyswa.com.au for a quote. Macbook Power Issues Apple MagSafe Power Pack’s should be replaced with genuine parts from Apple here. We do not supply these. Macbook Battery Issues The IT Guys offer a Macbook Battery Replacement service for Macbooks’, Macbook Pro and Macbook […]

Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for extra large sized homes with multiple floors

Wireless (Wi-Fi) Smart-Wired-Home solutions for extra large sized homes with multiple floors from $1,559 No matter how the internet is delivered to your home or office (NBN, HFC, ADSL, 4G) there still exists the problem of providing the Wi-Fi Internet signal throughout the building to be used by phones, tablets, laptops, smart-tvs, fetch boxes, Apple TV etc. The Internet signal comes into your home or office via a telephone cable, optical fibre or HFC cable, terminated on an internal wall. A router/modem is attached to that socket (or the NBN box) and this provides internet services either via a cable or wire to your computer or by a Wireless Wi-Fi signal that is produced by the modem. The most likely location of the Modem/Router is where the telephone socket or NBN box is located. This can be in any section of the house but usually found in the lounge, study or garage. With most modems only having a Wi-Fi range of a few meters, and not penetrating solid walls easily, this often means that non-adjoining rooms may not receive a strong enough signal to allow Wi-Fi to be used in those locations. To transmit strong Wi-Fi signal into poor reception areas of the house or office, we recommending installing one or more Ubiquiti Wireless Access Points (WAPs) that are hard-wired (ethernet cabling) back to the modem or switch located in a data/comms cabinet (which can often be in the garage or a cupboard in an existing smart-wired house). Communications/Network Cabinet Usually located in a garage, cupboard or robe, architects/builders will often specify a Harmony Box or Starserve box (see below) as the central data/comms cabinet (also referred to as a “hub”. Although space saving, they do not have enough room to allow for a modem modem let alone a POE switch. The IT Guys recommend installing a standard 6RU or 12RU Data cabinet, especially for larger homes. Typical data/comms cabinets can be wall mounted or free standing and cost between $100 to $300 + installation. Wireless Access Points (WAPs) Wi-Fi is delivered through the home or office using a series of Wireless Access Points (WAPs) . We recommend using Ubiquiti Wireless Access points in conjunction with Ubiquiti Switches and Cloud Key Controllers. Power for the WAP’s is transmitted through the ethernet cabling, so no need to install additional power sockets in ceilings etc. Ubiquiti Wireless access points come in two forms. 1. Unifi WAPs – Ceiling or Floor Mounted The WAP’s resemble a small flying-saucer and range in size from 160 to 200mm diameter. The WAP’s are strategically located at various points through the house, to provide a strong Wi-Fi signal into the required areas. If the house or office has already been smart-wired or had ethernet wall-plates installed previously, the WAP’s can be plugged into the existing wall-plate … and placed on a floor, under a table or in a cupboard, out of sight. …but ideally on the ceiling to provide maximum coverage. 2. Unifi WAPs – In-Wall Mounted Another solution is to replace the existing ethernet wall-plates socket with a wall-mounted WAP. (in-wall-wap) which provides room-wide wi-fi and includes 4 ethernet ports hidden at the base of each unit. If no adequate existing ethernet wiring exists, then an electrician is required to install the ethernet cabling. The Ubiquiti WAPs are ideally located on the ceiling, with ethernet cabling being run back to the modem, switch or central hub. Proposed solution for extra large sized houses   For the IT Guys to deploy a quadruple WAP solution for a large sized house with existing smart wiring within 10k of Subiaco, the estimated cost would be $1,559 inc GST (plus extra travel time if outside 10k plus additional cabling, power boards etc not supplied by client) If ethernet cabling is required, an electrician will need to be employed and depending on the building construction could cost anywhere between $300 and $2,000.

We recommend using Ubiquiti Wireless Access points in conjunction with Ubiquiti Switches and Cloud Key Controllers. Power for the WAP’s is transmitted through the ethernet cabling, so no need to install additional power sockets in ceilings etc. Ubiquiti Wireless access points come in two forms. 1. Unifi WAPs – Ceiling or Floor Mounted The WAP’s resemble a small flying-saucer and range in size from 160 to 200mm diameter. The WAP’s are strategically located at various points through the house, to provide a strong Wi-Fi signal into the required areas. If the house or office has already been smart-wired or had ethernet wall-plates installed previously, the WAP’s can be plugged into the existing wall-plate … and placed on a floor, under a table or in a cupboard, out of sight. …but ideally on the ceiling to provide maximum coverage. 2. Unifi WAPs – In-Wall Mounted Another solution is to replace the existing ethernet wall-plates socket with a wall-mounted WAP. (in-wall-wap) which provides room-wide wi-fi and includes 4 ethernet ports hidden at the base of each unit. If no adequate existing ethernet wiring exists, then an electrician is required to install the ethernet cabling. The Ubiquiti WAPs are ideally located on the ceiling, with ethernet cabling being run back to the modem, switch or central hub. Proposed solution for large sized houses   For the IT Guys to deploy a triple WAP solution for a large sized house with existing smart wiring within 10k of Subiaco, the estimated cost would be $1,369 inc GST (plus extra travel time if outside 10k plus additional cabling, power boards etc not supplied by client) If ethernet cabling is required, an electrician will need to be employed and depending on the building construction could cost anywhere between $300 and $2000.   Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for extra large sized homes with multiple floors Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for medium sized homes Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for small homes Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for small unit or apartment If you would like us to quote you on this or a larger house/office wireless networking solutions, please contact us as detailed below.

Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for medium sized homes

Wireless (Wi-Fi)Smart-Wired-Home solutions for medium sized homes from $1,100 No matter how the internet is delivered to your home or office (NBN, HFC, ADSL, 4G) there still exists the problem of providing the Wi-Fi Internet signal throughout the building to be used by phones, tablets, laptops, smart-tvs, fetch boxes, Apple TV etc. The Internet signal comes into your home or office via a telephone cable, optical fibre or HFC cable, terminated on an internal wall. A router/modem is attached to that socket (or the NBN box) and this provides internet services either via a cable or wire to your computer or by a Wireless Wi-Fi signal that is produced by the modem. The most likely location of the Modem/Router is where the telephone socket or NBN box is located. This can be in any section of the house but usually found in the lounge, study or garage. With most modems only having a Wi-Fi range of a few meters, and not penetrating solid walls easily, this often means that non-adjoining rooms may not receive a strong enough signal to allow Wi-Fi to be used in those locations. To transmit strong Wi-Fi signal into poor reception areas of the house or office, we recommending installing one or more Ubiquiti Wireless Access Points (WAPs) that are hard-wired (ethernet cabling) back to the modem or switch located in a data/comms cabinet (which can often be in the garage or a cupboard in an existing smart-wired house). Communications/Network Cabinet Usually located in a garage, cupboard or robe, architects/builders will often specify a Harmony Box or Starserve box (see below) as the central data/comms cabinet (also referred to as a “hub”. Although space saving, they do not have enough room to allow for a modem modem let alone a POE switch. The IT Guys recommend installing a standard 6RU or 12RU Data cabinet, especially for larger homes. Typical data/comms cabinets can be wall mounted or free standing and cost between $100 to $300 + installation. Wireless Access Points (WAPs) Wi-Fi is delivered through the home or office using a series of Wireless Access Points (WAPs) .
