Best recommendation I can give customers about email is:
Were you expecting an email or did you tell them to send you an email? It may not have been a person sending it at all. If no, then be suspicious delete it without opening or viewing it, if you consider to open it, open with caution. Many emails are infected and can infect your computer. If that email has a worm infection in it it will send itself to EVERYONE on your contact list. Think before you view.

Many times when a customer brings there computer because of data loss they haven’t keep track of there software license’s. What if your hard drive crashes today? It could be years before you need to reload the software and it’s necessary to have the software license key as part of the install / setup steps. You may be forced to re-purchase the software even if you still have the CD or DVD. Every software purchase you get a license for proof of ownership and it’s this license that you’re paying the big bucks for. Most companies (i.e. Microsoft, DELL) don’t keep these records for you. Always keep the card, CD / DVD sleeve or email that contains the license. Most people wouldn’t loose a $100 bill if it were in the house. Software (i.e. Windows, Office etc.) may have cost that much or more as part of your computer purchase. Make copies of the license key, and protect the label on your computer to protect your investment in software. You’ll be glad you did if, you sell the computer, or have it repaired, you may need it some day.
Windows 7, Mac, iPad or Android Tablet computer?
If you get a tablet or iPad they are intended to operate independently with WiFi or 3G/4G, there is little need to transfer programs or documents from your other computers. Tablets and iPads share files, music and pictures thru cloud Apps and Services from your other computers. Windows and Mac computers you usually want to transfer files, documents, pictures, music and videos to the new computer because your usually replacing them with the upgrade. I recommend that my customers schedule an appointment to bring the “New and Old Computer” to the shop for this. You can be limited trying to do it from home and can run into many unforeseen complications trying to do this yourself.
