The offer will only be open for a year after which you'd have to paid to upgrade and doesn't apply to new sales of Windows 10.

Keep watching the news for when this offer starts, it'll be a few months yet or so I'm lead to believe.


danger icon Just heard about a new agressive scam going around those of us who have purchased their own domains (http://dragonrider.co.uk for example).

ICANN, the global domain name coordinator, has raised awareness of a global scamming issue regarding domain renewals.

The latest ‘fashion’ among cybercriminals is sending registrants domain renewal emails, which pretend to be coming from ICANN.

The scam emails are only aimed at misleading the registrants into giving their financial information on the...


On the rare occasions we offer for sale items on eBay, we do not offer to sell/post overseas.

Just had notification from eBay that we have been enrolled in their Global Shipping Program. Apparently, if we sell abroad, eBay will supply us with a UK mailing address and then eBay will arrange the sending of goods overseas. Amazingly at no extra cost....

Order/Invoice etc Emails danger icon

Currently there seems to be a number of spoof emails going the rounds, (July-September 2014). Still ongoing January 2015!

The Subjects (that I've already seen) include Invoice #, Statement #, Order # and even Termination #. Each is written in pretty poor English and always has an attachment with it that the message tries to con you into opening.

Don't! There's a Trojan of some sort attached, simply delete the message, preferably without viewing the email message and...


There is a fake BT malware spam email currently going the rounds (April 2014). It claims to have your BT digital file, requesting that you to scan attached file and reply to the email. Don't!

The attached zip contains an exe virus or trojan horse malware.

This is a spoof email that fakes the sender to appear to be from bt.com. It isn't, one dead giveaway that this is malware is that for me at least, I don't use BT for my broadband NOR my telephone service either.

Of course it's a fake email, using a spoofed .gov.uk email supposedly sent from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. which itself is a fake address.

Deleted that and almost immediately a follow on fake email come in, again from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. but spoofed as if it was from my own email address, this time a notification I have 4 fax...
