Home Networking Help
Home Network Installation / Troubleshooting - Do you have more than one computer in your home? Do you want them all to share the same Internet connection? With a wired or wireless LAN, or Local Area Network, you can do that and more. You'll be able to access the Internet, share files, and print to a single printer - all from any computer on your network. In addition, we can troubleshoot your existing network or help you go wireless, allowing you to browse the Internet and print files from your living room or even the back yard. Let us construct a network that fits your lifestyle! Hardware not included.- Request this service now
Wireless Network Security - How safe is your wireless network? The default installation for most wireless networks does not include setting up security, which means that over 75% of all wireless networks are NOT secure! So unless you have taken deliberate steps to implement security, more than likely your network is at risk. We'll come to your home and lock down your network, so you can keep unwanted hackers and other pesky intruders out by restricting access to only the computers of your choice.- Request this service now
System Protection / Internet Setup and Security
Virus / Spyware / Adware Protection, Scan and Removal - Is your computer running extremely slow or acting a bit strange? Chances are it got infected with a virus or worm, or is loaded down with spyware and adware. Whether a hacker or identity thief has infected your computer or email with Trojans, malware, or other nasty enemies, we have just the medicine your computer needs. We'll scan your entire hard drive and remove every trace of unwanted junk that slows down your computer and threatens the confidentiality of your personal and private information. We'll also teach you how to keep your computer spotless and secure by preventing future outbreaks. - Request this service now
VOnline Child Safety - Do you worry about who your teenager is chatting with online? Do you worry that your school-age child will accidentally stumble upon a pornography site while trying to do their homework? If you own a computer and have children or teenagers in your home, then Internet filtering software is a must. We come to your home, help you purchase, install, and configure Internet filtering software that protects your children from Internet predators, obscene websites, objectionable chat rooms, and more. We then give you a personalized training session on using the software.- Request this service now

System Tune-Up and Optimization - Let's face it - without periodic maintenance your computer becomes increasingly sluggish, disorganized, and cluttered. We'll optimize your system with hundreds of system tweaks and enhancements that will defragment your hard drive, accelerate your PC's performance, make Windows boot faster, and increase your Internet and download speeds by up to 300%. We'll also perform several critical system updates, maintenance tasks, and repairs that will correct hard drive problems, clean and optimize your system registry, find and fix stubborn system errors, and more.

Physical Cleaning - When was the last time you thoroughly cleaned your computer - inside and outside? If it has been awhile (or never!), then you need our physical cleaning service. Experts recommend that you clean your computer every 3-6 months. Removing dust, pet hair, and smoke buildup not only stops the spread of germs, but also keeps your computer functioning properly, and even extends the life of your computer by allowing it to properly cool itself. Let us come out and give your computer the ultimate cleaning; we'll remove the dust particles from inside your computer case, spray your keyboard and mouse with compressed air, and shine up your monitor. Your computer will look and run like new again!- Request this service now
Data Recovery and other Home Data Services
Data Recovery - Losing your files can be devastating! Whether you've lost your data due to accidental deletion, damage caused by a power surge, corruption brought on by a virus or worm, the "formatting" or "fdisking" of your hard drive, or even an entire system crash, we can get your valuable data back. The types of data we can help you recover include email, personal documents, videos, pictures, MP3s, and more. We can also recover data from CD and DVD media, digital cameras, MP3 players, memory cards, and other portable devices. Contact us for a quote. - Request this service now
Secure Data Deletion - Don't get caught giving away your personal data! If you are selling, donating, or otherwise getting rid of your old computer (or even just upgrading the hard drive), you must ensure that all your sensitive data is securely erased. Deleting files, or even formatting the entire hard drive, does NOT actually remove the data from your drive. All your old email, personal letters, pictures, tax returns, passwords, health documents, financial records and more still exist on the drive. With a little know-how these files are easily recoverable, which can lead to identity theft. With our secure data deletion service we can wipe your entire hard drive, or even just a few files or folders, so that the data is completely destroyed and 100% gone with absolutely no possibility of it being recovered.- Request this service now
One-Time Data Backup - Do you have treasured pictures, emails from friends and family, important documents, etc. on your computer that you don't want to lose? If you have never performed a backup, you could lose it all at a moment's notice to fire, theft, hard disk failure, accidental file deletion, virus infection, and more. Protect your data with our data backup service that includes the transfer of all your important files to CD or DVD media. Includes up to 9.4 GB of data.- Request this service now
Data Migration - Are you looking to transfer the data from your old computer to your new computer? With our data migration service we can help you do just that. Data backup not included.- Request this service now

Laptop DC Jack Replacement - Does your laptop not turn on when you have it plugged into the wall? Does your battery charge only when you wiggle the power cord? If your laptop is experiencing these symptoms, it may be a candidate for a dc jack replacement. The dc jack is the outlet on the back of your laptop that you plug your power adapter into and it sometimes has a tendency to become loose. Let us replace your dc jack and get your laptop back up and running in no time!- Request this service now
