Computer Tips

First a Little Warning

When visiting other websites be very careful what you click on because some software downloads are very dangerous to your computer, so be absolutely sure what you are downloading. Read the ".exe" file name. Search the internet for more info, or to verify '.exe' executable files. It's a good idea to always get a second opinion on what software you might need.

Free Software

As the saying goes "Nothing is Free." Free software sometimes comes loaded with other software programs that you don't need. So always check or uncheck the appropriate boxes, and read everything carefully. But even then, they might sneak unwanted programs by you, so you will have to remove those programs manually.

With the internet, dangers are always lurking around the corner, so please be careful, be aware and educate yourself. When our computer systems and the internet are running smoothly the beauty of this machine becomes very evident. This is the largest collaboration of people in human history. With so many contributors from all over the world, we now have more knowledge and information at our fingertips then ever before, our potential is limitless. 

Computer Quick Fix Tips
Make sure that your Computer System Restore is on. This can sometimes be used to fix a bad computer virus or malfunction. It's a good idea to do a System Restore and a Virus Scan in the Safe Mode (During Computer Restart hit the F8 Key and then follow the instructions)  (F2 is Setup and F12 is the Boot Menu) Warning: System Restore that is found under Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools is not the same as PC Restore, Factory Settings or Image Restore, which will delete all your personal files and software from the PC. If you don't have OS Setup Disk that came with your PC then sometimes the PC will have a Factory Settings copy installed. This you need to do while your PC is rebooting. Press ' Ctrl '  then press F11 and then release both at the same time. You should see something like Symantec Ghost where you will be prompted to reinstall Factory Settings. This will delete all your personal files and software from the PC so please back up first.

Always Have your Operating System Restore Disk or Recovery Disc handy because not all computer problems can be fixed. You also need your Drivers and Applications Disks too.

Always backup your most important computer files because reinstalling the operating system will clear your data:
Kingston DataTraveler 200 - 128 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive DT200/128GB (Black)
Western Digital 2 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive

You can try some of these free programs to help keep your computer safe. Lava Soft Ad-Ware - Spybot Search & Destroy - CCleaner - Malwarebytes - Hijack This - Spyware Blaster. has the software above but be very careful not to click on the wrong download item. Please Verify the correct ".exe file." name.

New Computers
Sadly new PC's are loaded with a lot of bogus software and programs that you don't need. Removing them can be a challenge, but it's absolutely necessary if you want your PC to run smoothly without all those annoying distractions that slow your PC down.  Tired and Disgusted with Windows 8 dysfunctional Operating System Interface, Download Classic Shell to make your computer like XP, and find things again, or you can just update your windows 8.0 to windows 8.1, because 8.1 is definitely better then 8.0, but still not perfect yet.

Having your own computer is like having an extra brain.
Some computer fixes can take several hours. So if you can drop off your Desktop PC or Laptop I can usually fix your machine for a fixed price of only $150.00. That only includes labor and does not include the cost of replacement parts if needed. If you can't drop off your PC, and the PC problem can be fixed in less then one or two hours, then the house call fee is $50.00 / Hour. If you have access to the internet then maybe I can fix your PC remotely using the Internet, PC to PC. Remote PC to PC maintenance work is only $35.00 / Hour.

My PC is a Gateway to the Worlds Knowledge

My first computer was a Gateway. I didn't know at the time, but gateway was the perfect name for a computer, because It certainly was a gateway, a gateway to the universe. I ended up giving away my first PC to a Mom. And I still have 3 other 10 year old Gateway PC's that still work.
