Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/ and Goldsearch Australia have been appointed the Australian Distributors for the QED.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the 2 approved retailers and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

Hostage situation on your PC - Ransomware
Those affected may find it quite spooky, either parts of or their entire system is no longer accessible. Instead, they are presented with notifications that can give you goosebumps: A police department is supposed to have found illegal material on their machines. Their copy of Windows is illegal and they need to purchase a license or they have violated copyright laws. Other messages may be more "honest" and will tell mortified users their PCs have been taken over and that their files have been encrypted. They are now required to pay a ransom because they fell victim to ransomware.

Last days my PC become crazy.
It generate characters and other nonsense without typing on keyboard.
Reinstalling system help nothing.
Hope it is only because of hot summer wetter outside and not because of Hewlett Packard brand.

 The ultimate defense against Ransomware is to make regular image backups and save them to an external USB HD or cloud server.Then if hit with ransomware you can restore everything from your image file.You need to change your bios settings so that your PC can boot from a CD as most image programs have the option of  booting off a Dos disk. I use terabyte image for windows and paragon backup and recovery and save my image files to a 2TB USB HD. I have so far not been hit with any ransomware.

Would it not be easier to just have a external hard drive and just back up all your stuff on your regular hard drive?  Like making a mirror copy.  Do it once a week or when ever you have new info installed.  That is what I do.  And unplug the USB plug when not using the external hard drive.  Pretty easy to do.

So do you have your OS on both drives?( ie a mirror or cloned copy on both drives). Can you boot from your USB HD? Its generally not a good idea to have backups on the same partition.

Regular backup is good to prevention data damage caused by physical hardware fault.
In case of viruses and other mall-ware, backup is of a little help, cause you make backup with viruses too.
In such cases help good cleaning tools only.
