Do you often get hit with Ransomware messages or know people who and unfortunately call the number displayed on the pop up?

Re: Ransomware

I never got a ransomware from a website. But, I feel I may occassionally get Ransomware e-mails from spammers who send me spam, so I dont open spam.

I havent known anyone who got their PC infected with Ransomware.

Re: Ransomware

I deal with people all the time who bring in their laptops, opening up to blaring messages to call a number. Most are smart, some aren't and call the number.

Re: Ransomware

Are there many people who bring in a tower desktop PC to clean up Ransomware?

Do you get many ransomware infections from users with faster desktop tower PC with a faster CPU, and more RAM like 8GB. I feel some users who buy a PC with a CPU like Intel i7 to i9, and 8GB of RAM may more likely know how to prevent ransomware.

But, sometimes any user can get unlucky and end up getting ransomware by accidentally getting tricked to download ransomware from a link, or a phone call from a ransomware scammer.

it ranges, most are on i5s are we really push the middle section of processor. Though some will come in wanting i7 though they will never need that much power.

Re: Ransomware

Intel i5 does seem fast enough for most tasks.
