TechnologyTips Radio Episode 043

Originally Aired March 20th, 2007

This week on TechnologyTips Radio: Memory Problems, Viruses and Backing up a PC.


Every Tuesday I appear on AM 640 Toronto (640 AM) on The Stafford Show. Mike Stafford is a good friend and long time host on the station and I started doing 30 minute live tech help calls (no prep, seat of the pants) with him in early 2005, then I was forced to take a break because of my schedule, but now I am back.

If you listen live on the Internet, the show airs Tuesdays at 6:30 PM Eastern Time.


Andy, and Mike talk about the YouTube awards.

  • Frank called to ask about the best way to back up his computer.
  • Dan wants to upgrade the memory on his computer.
  • Danny had a Spyware and Virus question.
    As always, Andy recommends: Windows Defender, Spybot Search and Destroy and Pest Patrol
  • Barbara called because she has a brand new computer and it won’t shut down.
