The Christmas holidays are approaching and we take time out to look at what you can do to protect your home and business computers while you are on holiday.

Listeners’ questions we covered included;

Removing Trojan Horses from a computer
Computer virus infections often arrive in the form of Trojan Horses – programs that pretend to be something else such as an image viewer – removing them can be difficult.

The IT Queries website has the step-by-step instructions for removing a virus infection using the Malwarebytes program.

Ejecting a stuck DVD or CD
Steve asked about getting a stuck disk out of his computer. Luckily on most optical drives, at least those with trays, there is a pin hole where you can push in a straightened out paper clip to manually open the drive.

Tune into ABC 702 Sydney to hear Paul Wallbank and Simon Marnie discuss the tech issues that affect you or listen online through the ABC Sydney webpage.

We love to hear from listeners so feel free call in with your questions or comments on 1300 222 702 or text on 19922702. If you’re on Twitter you can tweet Paul at @paulwallbank and 702 Sydney on @702sydney.
