Windows 10 is still in its testing phase and will undergo further changes between now and its final release date. However Panther Computers has been using Windows 10 for months now and are impressed. It has the speed of Windows 8 under the hood with a new interface that is a hybrid of Windows 8 tiles and the classic desktop most of us prefer.
Do to the increased number of ransomeware viruses being seen on computers being brought into Panther Computers, we are adding a new utility called Crypto Prevent to the software installed on computers during our Panther Tuneup. You can read the article below on CryptoWall for more details on ransomeware viruses and their effects. We will install the free edition, free to homeowners and businesses alike, but you may consider the paid premium version for automatic updates.
Over the last several years there have been several ransomeware viruses that will encrypt your data in a fashion that will cause you to loose the data or have to pay to get your files back. CryptoLocker, CryptoDefense, CTB Locker, and now CryptoWall. It is now more important than ever to ensure you have backups of all your important personal and business files as you could be infected from any number of sources.
We are modifying our store hours starting 12/3/2014 until further notice as shown on the right and as follows:

Panther Computers now offers the Panther Pounce Tuneup. In response to customer requests, we are now offering this alternative to the full Panther Tuneup (regularly $140) with this faster turn around time to quickly get you back up an running. This is a quick hit tuneup that simply removes the most obvious virus and malware infections for $40 that allows you to continue using your existing protections and antivirus software.
We are bumping this article back to the top as there has been a recent increase of these calls in the NW Florida area. We have one computer in the shop now that has been completely locked and is in danger of having had tax documents tampered with or "stolen. We've had a second customer relate that they have had no less than five phone calls trying to coerce them into letting the Indian sounding caller take control of their computer. Watch videos and more on our Facebook page on this an other computer scams.
Panther Computers is proud to announce that we've been approved as a dealer to resell Robo3d 3d printers. We have a demo printer with print samples and filament spools in stock. You can now rent time on our printer at a price of .50 per CM3 (50 cents per cubic centimeter).
We have been doing business as Panther Computers as of April 2014 for ten years. We want to thank the Northwest Florida area and especially our Santa Rosa County friends, family, and neighbors for allowing us to serve your computing and technology needs.
