Cyber-blackmail and the Royal baby: online scams to watch out for this year - Yahoo! News UK

Cyber-blackmail and the Royal baby: online scams to watch out for this year - Yahoo! News UK:

'via Blog this'

First of all, don't click on any links sent by email promising anything about the Royal baby. Instead, do a net search and you are more likely to find legitimate links to Royal baby news.

If you haven't already, read the three tutorials on this site on backing up and restoring your computer, then back up your system and create your Rescue Disk, just in case your computer gets locked up by "ransomware", as mentioned in the article above.

You can read the first tutorial at:

Links to the other tutes are in the first tute.

Have a safe 2013!
