IDG Contributor Network: News from Epicor’s annual user conference

Today, 03:45 PM

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

Epicor’s annual user conference in Nashville this year was a good chance to spend time with the company, its partners and its customers. I have some big thoughts about Epicor and its existential issues, but I’ll leave that post for a little later. For now, here’s a roundup of what we saw at the show.

Show demographics

Thirty-two countries were represented at the show, with some 3,300 attendees. There was a good mix of customers, media/analysts, partners (although more on that in a later post) and, of course, Epicor’s employees. The event venue, the Gaylord Opry, was a little strange and, in my mind at least, was a bit of a reflection of the company, its customers and its struggles. But again, more on that later.

The Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool has been updated for Wanna

Today, 03:07 PM

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

Microsoft offers a number of free anti-malware tools. Windows 10 and 8.1 users have Windows Defender. Windows 7 users can chose between the full-featured Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) or the limited Windows Defender. But all Windows users have access to the Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) even though they may not be aware of it.

MSRT is part of the monthly patch Tuesday bug fixes. Windows Update downloads a new version of MSRT and runs a scan with it as part of its normal processing. The last patch Tuesday was May 9th and Microsoft dutifully issued a new version of MSRT.

I mention this because on May 23rd someone contacted me to ask why MSRT had just been updated. He had seen a new version appear in Windows Update on a 32 bit Windows 7 machine that had been dutifully updated on the 9th.

The Castles of Dr Creep

Today, 02:45 PM

This was one of my favorite C64 games and it's now on Steam for $3. Just as frustrating as ever - and as creepy. My grandson's going to love it as much as his mother did. Now if I can only figure out how to stay away from those dam' tracked laser guns... :devil:
