Pop Ups and Viruses

If your Internet Explorer or Firefox keeps popping up with ads and such then your computer is infected by something. The infection will eventually slow your computer down to a crawl and will become unusable. Worse than that is the infection may be spying on you and possibly even ‘key logging’ where ‘they’ are able to harvest your passwords, credit card numbers, etc.

Your computer needs cheering up and I can help. I never know how bad a computer is until I start work but I will not spend more than two hours of my time on cleaning up your computer. A full spyware and virus removal will cost between $80 and $160 but most of them can be removed within the first 60 minutes.

If the virus cannot be removed or the damage done to the operating system is too great then sometimes I have to back up all of your data, reformat the drive and re-install the operating system before putting your data back. I prefer to do this in my workshop since your computer has many hours of work to do.

Again, I will do all that I can to keep your costs down.


Slow Computers

Your computer is just full of junk and has way too many processes and programs running in the background. It needs cheering up. You will be amazed how quick your computer is when it’s been cleaned up a bit.
