PC and Internet Security Technology
Monday, May 20, 2pm
S.H.A.R.E Conference Room.
By Mr. Charles Prince
Mr. Charles Prince of Avast Software will give a presentation on Monday May 20 at 2:00 PM in the large room at SHARE.
His topic is, "PC and Internet Security Technology". He will define terms like Malware, Spyware, Rootkit, Virus, Trojan Horse, Polymorphic Malware, etc. He will also cover a gray area called PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) which could be good or bad depending on how the user defines them. A review of several free and paid anti-malware programs will be informative.
Since malware is such a serious problem at this time, this will be an important topic for both beginners and more experienced PC users. There will be door prizes for some lucky attendees.
Attendance is limited to the first 70 who register.

Call for Volunteers - Resource Center Substitutes!
Many of you are familiar with the Resource Center. It’s the place you go, call,
or come to when you have a PC or Mac question or problem. Our volunteers do their
very best to help members with their PCs, Macs, software or hardware. Now we need
your help. Please consider adding your name to our Resource Center Substitute List.
Our substitutes fill in for the Resource Center Volunteers when they can’t be there…I
mean everyone is entitled to take a vacation, right?
The Resource Center is open M-F, in two shifts, 10 AM-1 PM & 1-4 PM, with two
volunteers per shift. You would be with a regular volunteer, helping members, and
learning along the way. In addition, we will be instituting a training session so
that you’ll be able to “hit the ground running.”
If you are interested, even if you only have one day of the week when you might
be available, please contact Rosemary Sparacio for more details at
New Computer Coach Program to help members with purchasing and setting up a new
