Hallmark Virus

Ok… so I have been getting asked about the “Hallmark” Virus and there are always warning emails going around this time of year warning of this virus.

Yes, for the last few years there has been a virus spread by email, usually the subject is : Hallmark Postcard, or Postcard from Hallmark. There is a good chance this could be going around again with the Holidays upon us.

If you do get this email make sure to not open any attachments! If it is a legitimate electronic Christmas card it will have a link going to a website, not an attachment.

Many of these viruses come in an attachment with the file ending in “.exe”, which is an executable file. Never open an executable file that is attached to an email!

I hope that this message helps you all and prevents some infections this Christmas season!

Automatically delete browsing history in IE8 on Exit

If you are using Internet Explorer 8, which many of my clients do use, sometime you want to delete your browsing history on a daily basis.  Previous to Internet Explorer 8, you had to go into the settings and delete it manually.  Internet Explorer 8 makes life very easy browsing the web and managing copied cache history files. You can setup Internet Explorer 8 to automatically delete browsing history when you exit (or close) it.

How to Automatically delete browsing history in IE8

1. Open Internet Explorer browser.
2. Goto Tools > Internet Options.
3. Click to check option “Delete browsing history on exit”.
4. Then click Apply, OK.

Done!  Now each time you close Internet Explorer your cached history will be removed!
