Just in the last couple days, some of our customers who are regular Skype users have experienced a new spyware which is a "spoof" class virus, showing up on their Skype conversations with links starting either with "cnn.it" or "goo.gl" and ending with their own usernames. Inexperienced users click on the links, since they are coming from trusted friends on their Skype contacts and ending in their own user names, thinking they are important links sent by friends. This is a spoof method used by automated "bots" or spybots which then download malware on to the user's systems and begin to record all vital data and storing them for transfer online.
The links on your Skype will look something like this:
The remedy is as follows:
* Block the URL provided from your various contacts that resemble the links discussed above.
* Change your Skype password regularly
* In the Privacy Settings in your Skype account, be sure and click "Delete Skype Cookies"
* Using download.com (CNET's safe download page) download the following safe and FREE tools to help clean your system of any spyware:
* Download the FREE tool CCLEANER and clean all your temporary cache files on your system. Be sure and do this while all your browsers are closed.
* Use the trusted tool SPYBOT to remove any spyware on your system installed after clicking the link from your Skype contacts.
* For added peace of mind, download the FREE tool Malwarebytes and run it on your system, in order to clean up any additional spyware/malware which may have not been detected by Spybot or your Anti Virus program.
And finally, always remember that your PC is just like any other system which needs to be cleaned up, fine tuned and serviced every two to three months (just like giving your car a tune up). And you can always rely on our experts to help you either remotely or in person to run diagnostic tests and perform tune-up procedures for you.

The premier website makers of Palm Springs has the pleasure of announcing an exciting project involving an advanced educational website system. The International College of Medical Qigong had the same basic html website for years. The college's old website only offered the most rudimentary of content and lacked any advanced tools or features that an educational facility needs. The founder knew in order to take his school to the next level it was going to need to upgrade their current website.
The founder of the International College of Medical Qigong came to New Web Experts to remake his existing college website. Our website specialists worked with the ICMQ and designed an advanced educational website system for the college.

Your computer - whether it be a PC, Mac, desktop, laptop or tablet - is a complex machine and needs regular maintenance much like your car. Every few thousand miles your car needs a tune up, and every few months your computers should also receive a tune up.
Overtime a computer can slow down to the point of almost being unbearable. Many people think that the only option is to buy a new computer. Sometimes all that is needed to get your computer running like new is some good maintenance and repair. With the invention of high speed internet our computers are more prone to infections and often get bogged down with spyware, adware, and other malware. These infections will slow down your computer and often cause undesirable side effects like web browser pop ups, scam ads and computer lock ups.
