news silvsurf 1

 

The Silver Surfer Internet Café was set up by Andover Neighbourcare for the over 40’s and the disabled in Andover & surrounding villages with the purpose of getting people on-line, overcoming technology fears and assisting in eradicating digital exclusion. 

 

This project has made a significant difference to many older people in Andover and even transformed the lives of some. 

 

The facility not only provides access to modern computing facilities and all that goes with access to the internet but also provides assistance and training in use of the technology in an appropriately friendly learning environment. 

"This café is a model of what should be happening in every town in England” - Sir George Young (Local MP)

Telephone Scam

We have received a number of enquiries from clients saying they have been contacted by a company purporting to be from Microsoft and that their PC has been infected viruses, they then ask you to run a command on your PC which will display the 'Event Viewer' and this shows any errors that have occurred on your PC.

All PC's have errors but they insist that these errors prove that your PC is infected, they will then direct you to a website. This will try and infect your PC with a trojan (a type of virus) which will record all your keystrokes including all your usernames and passwords. They will then ask for a fee to install software which they say will clean your PC.

If you receive any telephone call of this nature just hang up! (They are persistent and my try to call back).

Please do not hesitate to contact Silversurfers if you have any concerns on this matter.
