On-Site Service

I've been proudly serving and supporting small businesses for over 15 years. Let me take care of your computer needs so you can focus on everything else to make your business successful.

Computer Tune-Up: Performed in your office!

Much like an automobile, your computer will become slower and start to have problems if it is not 'tuned' regularly. Old temporary files and applications clutter up the hard drive, files get fragmented, and some applications can even spy on your web surfing habits, thus get in the way of your Internet access. A tune up will enhance your computer's performance, and make sure you're fully protected from security threats and viruses. While I'm at it, I will provide recommendations for how to make the most of the hardware and software investments you've made.

The service includes:

  • Running Diagnostics to check your system for hardware problems

  • Update virus software and check for viruses

  • Check that your computer is secure from unauthorized access

  • Delete temporary and trash files

  • Stop unnecessary programs from running at startup

  • Uninstall unnecessary programs and components

  • Check for and correct disk and directory errors

  • Ensure you have enough disk space for your future usage

  • Defragment your hard drive for better performance

  • Verify that your display settings are set correctly

  • Overall System evaluation

Let me professionally tune-up your system for peak performance and security!

Note: My Computer Tune-Up is a service only and does not include any hardware or software

  • Computer Selection, Installation and Setup
    So many choices, so little time. I can help you determine the best type of computer to fit your needs and budget, and provide the best sources for acquiring it. I can even procure or build the system for you. When the system is ready, I will install and configure the PC, and connect it to your network and/or Internet access, setting it up in place or in addition to your other systems.

  • Computer Troubleshooting
    Personal computers are complex and when things go wrong they can become beasts. I am adept at quickly figuring out PC problems, and in many cases fixing them right on the spot. In cases where hardware has broken down, I can determine your best options for getting the system back up and running, and provide replacement parts. In the process of troubleshooting, I can help you decide if now is the best time to upgrade, to improve performance, storage capacity or functionality of your PC.

  • Hardware Installations/Upgrades
    Hardware installations can be intimidating. Whether you're adding a scanner, Hard drive, more Memory , or any number of other hardware upgrades (or replacements), I can help in a number of ways. I can provide the best recommendations for achieving your goals, the best brands and most cost-effective sources from which to obtain parts. I can also provide parts directly, and install them for you, while also guaranteeing that things will work when it's all put back together.

  • Software Installations/Upgrades
    Unfortunately, just like with hardware, software installation can be perilous and is often tedious, such as when upgrading your computer operating system. I will make any software installation or upgrade painless for you by making sure things are set up right.

  • Data Backups
    Are your digital photos sitting on a single hard drive with no backup? Your financial records? There is critical data you wouldn't want to lose when a hard drive fails or a virus deletes your files. Reach out to me and I can help you figure out a convenient and effective way to protect your data by making redundant copies of it. In many cases automated processes can be created that require very little attention or maintenance.

    • Data Backups services:

      • Data Backup Solutions
        In today's world, it takes more than an sporadic backup to a CD to handle your backup needs. CD's just don't cut it for backing up your data. I can backup your file and set up a system custom for you and put together a solution that fits.

      • Multi-PC Data Backups
        You can introduce a lot of additional data protection simply by copying data between multiple computers on the same network. This process can be automated, so that computers "synchronize" with each other periodically. Give me a call and I can set this up for you as part of a comprehensive file server that will protect your files. ie. financial records, family digital photos, etc.

      • Data Transfer
        Sometimes you need to move data from one computer to another. In the case of moving all your email data, web favorites, application data, it just not that easy to recreate the same data on the destination computer. I can do this for you.

  • Data Recovery
    If the unthinkable occurs, there may be a way out. In the case of hard drive failure, for example, it is often possible to recover lost data using highly technical tools. Just reach out and I can quickly help you determine what your options are, and in many cases recover at least some of your data. Of course, if you contact us now, we can help you to set up part of a comprehensive file server that will protect your files, and you most likely won't ever need this service!

  • Home Business Networks
    Do you run your business out of your home? The phenomenal increase in home networks can be attributed to:

  1. Lower costs of network hardware and software

  2. Improvement in network performance and reliability

  3. The compelling benefits networks provide

If you have more than one PC or you depend on your home network for business, odds are you would benefit quite a bit from installing a network. And these days, installing a network is easier and more cost-effective than ever with the wide availability of wireless networking.

  • Networking services:

    • Network Selection, Installation and Setup
      Now you can have the same types of advantages that only big businesses have had until recently- sharing of Internet connections, files, printers, and other resources. I am an experienced tech that can help you navigate through the many choices involved, help you obtain and install the pieces, and configure it all so it works the way you need it to. Current PCs, printers, and other peripherals can usually be integrated, allowing you to leverage your previous hardware investments in new ways.

    • Network Troubleshooting
      As wonderful as they are, networks can be a pain in the neck when things go wrong. I can help you keep your network resources up and running and properly "talking to each other." Troubleshooting is one of the most important things I do.

    • File, Printer, and Fax Sharing
      Files, printers, and fax machines should be shared, not duplicated. Networks tie all of these resources together, for convenience, value, and flexibility. I can help you get more bang for your buck by making any sharable resource available to any trusted computer (and user) to take advantage of shared data and devices.

Whether you are a home user or a small business, I'll make sure we make the best effort to recover your valuable data.
