Networks If you have two or more PCs in your home, have you considered networking them? A network allows your computers to share files, a printer, and an Internet connection. Even better, an Ethernet over Powerline network is the cutting-edge way to connect all of the computers in your home. Or a wireless network is perfect for people who want to connect laptop and desktop computers and don’t like to be tied down. And when you go wireless, you won’t have the inconvenience of tripping over unsightly cables.
Virus/Spyware Detection and Removal Does it seem like there is a ghost inside your computer? It could be a virus. No matter what kind of PC you have, you need the latest antivirus/adware software. Not only do antivirus/adware programs protect your computer from damage, but they also prevent you from accidentally passing viruses to family and friends when you send e-mails or share files. If you’re unsure about which antivirus/adware software to install or how to configure it, just ask our technicians.
Firewalls and Internet Security Do you feel your computer is secured? Have you downloaded the latest patches and updates for Microsoft Windows? As Internet usage has grown, so have security threats. One way to protect yourself is to install a firewall, which keeps intruders from sneaking into your computer and accessing your private data. Firewalls also can alert you when spyware programs attempt to transmit your sensitive information over the Internet. In particular, firewalls are crucial if you have the always-on Internet connection of DSL or a cable modem.
Data Backup and Recovery How often do you backup your Computer? If it were suddenly damaged or stolen, would you lose all your valuable data? We recommend installing backup software to either backup to an external drive or even an off-site service such as DataX2.com. Along with helping you to backup your data safely, we also offer data-recovery services that can try to recover lost files resulting from hardware malfunctions, software conflicts, or viruses.
Preventive Maintenance You wouldn’t drive a car for years without changing the oil, so why ignore your computer? Like any investment, your computer needs constant care, which means keeping it free of dust. When was the last time your Computer had a thorough cleaning? It may be time to call us to schedule a maintenance cleaning.
