Art Exhibition – Steve and Marijke Hancock
FNQ Computers are proud to announce our next Art Exhibition for tableland artists Steve and Marijke Hancock who are continuing their exploration of style and technique, in this, their 15th exhibition.
In his current body of work, which he terms kinetic expressionism, Steve is striving to create the illusion of motion, while at the same time, exploring subtler levels of sensory stimulation.
Marijke’s paintings entice us into her magical world, where the forms of nature assume a surreal splendour.
Marijke’s meticulously-executed gems are keenly sought-after for intimate spaces. The expansive abstracts of Steve, on the other hand, are more desired for offices and larger spaces.
Opening: 6.00pm Friday 18 July Displayed till Mid August
‘Mangroves’ by Marijke Hancock – SOLD
A well known scam for sometime has been where a phone caller professing to be a representative of Microsoft support team advises you that you have problems with your computer and that for a fee they can remotely connect to your computer and fix the issues. This in the past has been used as a mechanism to infiltrate that computer with an array of Malware and other malicious software that does anything but fix your computer.
Recently we have had a spate of computers in our store which have been victim to this scam but with a new devious twist. Once the supposed Microsoft representative gets access to the computer he enables a startup password which effectively locks you out of your computer and deletes all restore points. The caller then attempts to solicit more money from you so you can access your computer again.
As with previous versions of this scam it is worth reminding everyone that Microsoft do not monitor your computer in this way and will not contact you in this or probably any regard. This latest scam can possibly mean you have no option other than to reinstall windows on your computer but in most cases can be recovered from registry backups that windows takes periodically.
This is the password box you will see on your computer if effected by this scam. At this point I would advise people to shutdown the computer ASAP and seek professional advice.
