What to DoIf you’re faced with any of the warning signs of a scareware scam or suspect a problem, shut down your browser. Don’t click “No” or “Cancel,” or even the “x” at the top right corner of the screen. Some scareware is designed so that any of those buttons can activate the program. If you use Windows, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to open your Task Manager, and click “End Task.” If you use a Mac, press Command + Option + Q + Esc to “Force Quit.”
If you get an offer, check out the program by entering the name in a search engine. The results can help you determine if the program is on the up-and-up.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this wonderful community event and fundraiser for the Weathersfield Proctor Library Expansion Fund. A special thank you to Heidi Eglintine for these photos, and to the Friends of the Library for the fabulous baked goods we snacked on during intermission!
