Is your computer infected with a virus? No worries, I have years of experience in virus removal and will get your pc back up and running in no time. In fact, I can usually make your computer run better than when it was new! I tweak and tune every desktop or laptop computer that I work on to make it run as fast and efficiently as possible. There is no extra charge for this service, it is just my way of making sure that every customer gets the best service possible.
Worried about losing files? No need to worry. Unlike many of the "other guys" I don't make a habit of just deleting everything and re-formatting your computer to fix it. I simply fix the problems right. If someone told you you need to completely reformat your computer to get it fixed, chances are they simply do not know what they are doing. Although this is occasionally necessary, 99% of the time your computer can be fixed without such drastic measures.
In the rare event that re-installing the operating system is needed, I can safely recover and backup all your personal files before doing so. Chances are there is no need for formatting and re-installing Windows though.
Types of viruses and malware I commonly remove include:
- Computer Virus
- Root Kits
- Rogue Programs (fake Anti-Virus applications)
I will remove all types of maliscous software from your system and help you increase your security to minimize the threat of future infections. In most cases your computer can be cleaned of viruses or malware without having to reformat and re-install the operating system. Even if extreme measures are needed and Windows needs to be re-installed, your personal files will be completely backed up first. Either way, I can repair your computer without losing your valuable data.
The need for protection from maliscous software (viruses and other threats) is greater than ever. With identity theft on the rise malware infections are at an all-time high and the threat posed by them is greater than ever. Don't go unprotected, it is simply not worth the risk.
So what type of protection is best? To some extent that depends on the type of computer you use and what you do with it. As part of every service call I will analyze your security needs and balance that against the power of your computer to suggest the best security option for you. How much does the protection cost? Nothing. Thats right, zero. The best protection programs available are free and I will install and configure them for you during the service call.
In addition to anti-virus programs and other software based security measures, the user of the computer often needs a fewpointers on what sorts of activities and computer habits are high risk. I will help you make sure you stay as safe from future infection as possible. Want complete immunity to viruses and malware threats? Ask me about Linux.

Custom Built Computers
Need a Custom built computer? I build custom computers designed for a variety of applications from rock solid business machines to high powered gaming and graphics monsters. Custom built computers have many advantages over store bought machines. They are custom tailored to your specific computing needs and don't come with all the advertisements and other garbage found on bulk produced commercial machines.
Each PC is custom designed to your specifications or, for the less technically savvy, designed to perform the tasks you need. All of my custom computers are built using high quality components and are fully upgrageable for years to come. Pricing is bid on a per job basis and varies widely, please call for more details and a written bid.
