Operating System Service — Including Virus and Spyware Removal
Does it seem like your computer has a life of its own? It could be any virus that may have sneaked its way into the system. If your computer is infected, Mr. Computer’s malware removal service can help. A recent study reported that over 95% of computers in major cities are infected with some sort of malware. No matter what kind of computer you have, you always need the most up-to-date Anti-Virus software. Not only do Anti-Virus programs protect your computer from crashing, but they also prevent you from accidentally passing the infection to other computers of family and friends when you send e-mails or share files.
Internet Security Protection and Firewalls
How secure is your computer? As Internet usage has grown, so has the number of 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 unauthorized programs such as viruses and spyware 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. Protect yourself and your family … with help from Mr. Computer.
Data Transfer Backup and Recovery
How often do you backup your PC? If it were to crash or be stolen, would you lose important data? Mr. Computer recommends installing a re-writable DVD burner or an external hard drive. In addition to 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.
One of the best ways to improve your computer’s performance is to increase your memory or RAM. It is important to note that a hard drive is not technically classified as memory but as storage. Just because you have a lot of hard drive space does not mean that you have enough system memory or RAM. Sometimes, increasing your memory can have dramatic results for your computer. Allow Mr. Computer to assist you in choosing the right memory and installing it for you properly.
Optical Drive Installation
Optical drives are your CD-ROM, DVD-ROM and your CD or DVD+/-RW Computer disc drives. We can install a new optical drive if yours is no longer reading discs, or we can install a DVD player or DVD burner if you do not have one.
Hard Drive Installation
If you are running out of space for your files on your computer then you may need a new hard drive. We are certified experts at installing new hard drives. We can even install the new hard drive without having to re-install your entire operating system!
Preventive PC Maintenance and Optimization
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 PC had a thorough cleaning? If it has been more than six months, it is time to schedule a preventive-maintenance visit.
