Last, we received advice this week from two resident experts: Leonard Madalon, retired master plumber, suggests disconnecting all hoses and turning off the water supply to hose faucets, to prevent pipe freezing. Jerry Basye, electrical & network specialist, warned of a computer virus called Crypto virus. The virus encrypts all your files. You can eliminate the virus, but not regain your data. He has begun hearing from clients they have the virus. Jerry’s advise- back up your files to an external hard drive and do not open files from unknown sources.
