Default Make sure to get the latest MS security patches

Not really drum related, but make sure you have the latest security patches from Microsoft since the ransomware virus is pretty rampant and will likely morph to target other operating systems, (even Linux). You should have a May 2017 update, but to be sure, go to:
Start button
Control Panel
System and Security
Check for Updates

It's probably a good time to backup everything too.

Excellent advice to everyone! As a retired IT professional, I'm always reminding family, friends and clients about this. As we rely more and more on technology, it's only going to get worse. Sad, but true.
