I'm in the weeds guys so I won't be on too much through the weekend.

Sue left town for a fun trip to Savannah GA with her best friend and right before she left her computer was hit with some nasty virus/ ransomwear program that encrypted her files and demanded $500 to fix it paid to the Russian mafia I presume. So, we threw out the computer and bought a new one. Now I have to re-install everything and get it integrated and linked with out shipping software and order manager. Uggh, I hate this shit. I'll try and hit the forum after work if I have any brain cells left.

You might want to consider running your office desktops as virtual clients. In a case like this you could delete the virtual client and reinstall it from a saved copy. You would be up in an hour or so and not have to go through all the software reinstalls. I like xenserver/xendesktop, but there are a number of VMs to choose from such as VMWare, Virtualbox, etc.

That's actually excellent advice. Is there anything this forum doesn't have an expert on?

"Knifies" come from all walks of life.

Gleanings from a 30 year IT pro...
There are a few simple rules to follow. The majority of trouble comes from online: email & browser.
So (1) manage email on the email server through the browser (Firefox preferred) and (2) limit what runs on/from web pages (http://noscript.net - scrutinize links before you click!) and (3) keep Windows and applications updated and (4) have a good backup plan as craig_uw alluded to above, as a last resort if all else fails.

We made more progress today. We should be back on line with our #1 shipping computer tomorrow. Almost all packages shipped but it was hard.
