HHICC Downloading Tip
Do some research before simply downloading. Download and install software only from websites you know and trust. If you are downloading
a program or other piece of software, it is always advisable to download it from the developer's site as opposed to a download service.
However, even developers many times offer free programs or add-ons, and are compensated by other companies for installing tool bars,
changing search engines, home pages, etc. Read the information during the download process. Beware of checked boxes that will download
and install things that you just don’t want and/or can infect your browser with pop ups, malware and adware. Ask HHICC volunteers for
help, Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm, or call 843-842-4475.
Help for the iPad
Here is a neat 30 minute video introduction to the latest iPads. This video addresses many of the issues that both
new and experienced iPAD users might experience, such as
- Resolve Freeze - Hard Reset
- Multitasking - double clicking home button shows multiple apps that are running
- Apple TV mirrors iPAD on your TV
- Camera tip - don't use shutter button, Vol+ acts as a shutter without moving the iPAD
- Battery Life
- Google Chrome rather than Safari

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

Security Advice - With all the security risks
currently circulating on the Internet, NOW
would be a good time to update your anti-virus program and then scan your computer
for viruses and worms.
