nov update & office 2007If you’re still using Windows 10 November Update from two years ago, or Office 2007 or Outlook 2007, you would want to upgrade to a newer version or move to an alternative solution. Then there is a bad news for you guys that Microsoft on Tuesday officially ended up their support for all of these services, meaning that you won’t be receiving any updates or security patches from the company moving forward. Windows 10 November Update (version 1511), released in November 2015, was the first major update to Windows 10. The move follows Microsoft ending support for original Windows 10 build earlier this year. The move affects Home, Education, Pro, and Enterprise editions. Also hitting the end of the road are Office 2007 and Outlook 2007. Microsoft first releases the productivity suite and the email client 10 years ago. Mainstream support for both the services ended on October 9, 2012. Much like Windows 10, if your Office and Outlook clients have reached the end of support of their cycle, you should consider upgrading to a newer version of Office and Outlook or find an alternative service...Full details can be found on our FORUM.

north korea masterminded wanna cry ransomewareThe WannaCry malware attack will likely go down as the event which woke the world up to the real potential for cyber-attacks to cripple essential infrastructure, after taking down some parts of UK’s National Health Service for several days and having devastating effects on companies in many other parts of the world.

microsoft edge browserVirtual reality might still be the big thing in the gaming industry, but WebVR is also expanding VR to the web. Microsoft has already introduced WebVR 1.1 API for the Edge browser, and is now expanding on that with the release of EdgeHTML 16. EdgeHTML 16 will be a part of October’s Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and it will enable you to utilize Windows Mixed Reality headsets and motion controllers whilst browsing with Edge. Windows Mixed Reality is a new type of VR headset that includes a system of front-mounted cameras that incorporate real world objects in its virtual world.

This means that updated Windows 10 users can use their headsets’ motion controllers for virtual reality content open in Edge. Edge users can browse the web in 2D and launch WebVR content with their WMR headsets and motion controllers...Further details are posted on our FORUM.

Microsoft ends support for Windows 10 PC version 1511 PDF Print E-mail

end of support windows 10 build 1511As we draw near the release of the next big Windows 10 update, Microsoft is dropping official support for an older release. Microsoft ended support for the original release version of Windows 10 in May, and now it's doing the same for the first major update to hit the OS. As of October 10, Windows 10 version 1511 will no longer receive any more security or quality updates from Microsoft. This applies to Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Education, and Windows 10 Enterprise editions. Version 1511 was first released to PCs in November 2015. While Windows 10 version 1511 will continue to run if you have it installed, a lack of security updates will mean leaving yourself open to some potentially nasty threats. The simplest solution, and one Microsoft recommends in a support document, is to update to the latest release version, the Creators Update. At the very least, moving up to the Anniversary Update should ensure you continue to receive security updates until support for it is dropped in the coming months...For more visit Forum.

RansomewareMany ransomware attacks target emails because they are an excellent opportunity for hackers to use in a short amount of time. RansomSaver is an add-on for Microsoft’s Outlook messaging program. It detects and removes emails that include ransomware. RansomSaver is an add-on for Microsoft Outlook that is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Outlook from Outlook 2007 to the newest versions. It runs on all versions of Windows released after Windows XP. Speaking of Windows XP, if you’re still running this OS, don’t forget to install a reliable antivirus tool. RansomSaver integrates into Outlook automatically after installation. It features lots of options, but the essential function is scanning for ransomware. RansomSaver checks the emails that you choose to select for ransomware attachments, and it can delete the whole message or just the infected attachment. The add-in then will move the emails to a dedicated folder called RansomSaver...More details and a download link are posted on our FORUM.
More evidence Microsoft is bringing its Mixed Reality Viewer to Android PDF Print E-mail

We posted a few days ago that Microsoft was looking for developers to create a 3D scanning and augmented reality application for mobile devices. At the time it was not clear which platform this was for, though we assumed it was for iOS or Android, given the lack of Windows 10 Mobile handsets. Now Italian site has noticed that Microsoft has delivered the answer to us all the way back in May, in their promotional video for Story Remix, which clearly shows a Samsung phone running Microsoft’s then View 3D app, now Mixed Reality Viewer. At the time Microsoft painted it as part of the workflow of users, being able to capture information on the phone they own already and process it on their PC, but it was not clear then if Microsoft was simply talking about transferring media via OneDrive. In light of the job posting it now seems clear that Microsoft intends to develop a dedicated Mixed Reality application for Android (and likely iOS) that will let users capture images, view 3D models and possible scan items in 3D, a feature Microsoft promised for Windows 10 Mobile, but never delivered...Full details can be found on our FORUM
