SharePoint 2010 is a software product from Microsoft that makes it easier for people to work together. Using SharePoint 2010, your people can set up Web sites to share information with others, manage documents from start to finish, and publish reports to help everyone make better decisions.

IDC OPINION

All indications suggest that Windows 7 will be a major success with business customers of all sizes as well as with consumers. Windows 7 has the ability to drive productivity and user satisfaction on its own strengths and features, but the product also benefits indirectly from the aging installed base of Windows PCs, which today continues to be dominated by Windows XP, making Windows XP emulation an especially useful capability, especially for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that have delayed upgrading to Windows Vista.

Do you wish you had an easy answer for SharePoint users who ask, "How can I update my SharePoint documents while I’m away or offline?" or "How can I access my SharePoint content quickly and easily without a browser?"

Installing SharePoint Workspace on client computers may be just that answer. SharePoint Workspace is part of the Office Professional Plus 2010 suite, and it’s designed specifically to support remote and offline SharePoint users who need to work offline or have minimal access to SharePoint servers.

Microsoft on Monday released an emergency patch against the Windows shortcut link (.LNK), aka Windows Shell, vulnerability.  With the out-of-band release, Microsoft also disclosed Office documents at risk from the "no user input required" shortcut icon attack.

All "supported" editions of Windows got a patch, "including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2," according to Christopher Budd, senior security response communications manager at Microsoft. He recommends companies deploy the update "as soon as possible, to help protect their computers from criminal attacks seeking to exploit the .LNK vulnerability."

Here’s a super easy way to copy or backup your signatures in Outlook. I'm not sure why Microsoft did such a great job of building this feature and then hiding it.

Turns out Microsoft has built in a hidden way to jump straight to the folder where your signatures are saved.

This works in all versions of Outlook from Outlook 2000 all the way to Outlook 2010.

30 Years of Rave Reviews

Nims and Associates are the best support company I have ever worked with. They get back to my every problem or question in record time. They have been able to help or fix every problem I have come up with. Bill and or Bob are very knowledgeable with all my MASS 200 problems. I would and have…

I cannot thank you enough for your help this evening. You have proven that your services are much more valuable than we ever expected - when you guys told me your hourly rate, I thought "no way can we afford that"! lol .... We are small and we do all we can to keep costs down, as I'm sure you…

We are so pleased with the installation of our Shoretel system. The phones work great and James was able to customize the system to suit our somewhat unusual need of combine live person answering and automation. Both the phones and the software are user friendly and required little training. James…

....and, thank you for all YOU do. We are able to actually breathe easier knowing you're taking care of people. We have trusted you from the get-go because of your high intelligence, your ease at taking in and integrating huge amounts of new knowledge, and your grace and calmness in taking care of…

Our Yardi conversion was challenging. Hiring Nims and in turn working with Marco was the smartest thing we did to assist in this transition. His contribution was priceless. My staff and Board both agree it would have been a nightmare without Nims (Marco).

I was going to say it was the smartest…

I’ve sent more than one shining Michael endorsement. The whole company kicks ass.

Bill has far exceeded my expectations. I am happy to have another Super Technician to rely on for MAS200.

I have been extremely happy with your service. Michael is truly devoted to his clients and has been great about working with our current vendor to get our issues resolved. The MXLogic transition was seamless. Our users barely noticed the change, which is always a plus. 

We are very happy to have your company in place. Joel and Tony have been excellent. The Senior Management Team feels as though a great weight has been lifted from their shoulders and we are appreciative that our systems and software are in the hands of experts.

We have been a client of Nims & Associates for over ten years. Chris has implemented and maintained our network for all of those years. As our network and our needs have changed and grown, Chris has provided excellent support to move us forward. Over the years I have come to know several of the…

We are very satisfied with the professional demeanor of both Tessa and Michael and their willingness to go above and beyond the scope of their expectations to solve our computer-related issues. The immediate and personal attention we receive from Nims when our Firm has an IT issue is impressive, to…

Since we switched hosts to Network Solutions, we've had nothing but continuous problems with email and sessions timing out preventing us from opening our online store. Joel went out of his way to solve our problem. This means the world to us. Joel listened and accommodated our needs first before…

We are delighted with the service and we've received a number of comments by clients that they are very impressed with the way Tessa handles the problems and works with them. She REALLY picks up things quickly. We are continuously amazed and pleased that we only have to tell her something once and…

Since our bank told us we need to become PCI compliant, we found lots of holes and “open doors” on our servers, hosting, website etc. Chris closed up them and Tim has helped with the all the other annoying daily problems we have had, and they both do it with a smile and a reassuring, calming tone…

At a time when it may seem like good customer service is at all time low and we hear so many negatives about many companies and their employees, it’s a pleasure to be able to send along our positive comments regarding Nims & Associates … and more specifically about Chris. Chris has worked our…
