Virus Repair:  It's really this simple: You've got a virus. You call us. We fix it fast. Then we consult on prevention. Virus repair is one of PC Computer Guy's most common service requests. PC Computer Guy will perform several diagnostic procedures on your system to diagnose the problem, remove the virus, and if necessary, fix the damage caused to your system by the virus. We have all the tools and expertise necessary to remove the latest and nastiest viruses from your computer.

Backup: The above mentions one way in which your data and important files could be put in danger. Viruses, as well as mechanical hard-drive failure, could cause you to lose years worth of your life's data stored on your computer. For this reason, PcComputerGuy urges every client to BACK UP YOUR DATA. PcComputerGuy can install a system for you which will automatically back up your system nightly, weekly, or monthly--and protect your files.

Phone Systems: We have partnered with Jive Communications - an industry leader in cloud-based hosted voice over IP (VoIP).

Preventative Maintenance/Tune-ups: Performing general preventative maintenance on your computer will help the system run at its optimum speed and efficiency, as well as help to protect your system from failure. This category of service involves giving the computer a check-up to see which hardware and software components may not be running correctly or as fast as they should be. This category of service often includes the removal of Spyware and Adware. These malicious programs are often responsible for hindering PC performance and burdening users with annoying popups. Also included in preventative maintenance is the removal of old temporary files and cookies. It is a good idea to remove unnecessary junk from the PC that may be just taking up space and hindering performance.

Software: This is a large category, which includes software and firmware installation and upgrades.

Firmware: In addition to helping you install programs onto your computer, PcComputerGuy can help with issues which require diagnosis and repair or re-installation of software/firmware elements of a PC.

PcComputerGuy will help you find and install any needed drivers.

Software: PcComptuerGuy offers a variety of software including Windows 7, Microsoft Office, and Norton Antivirus. When considering purchasing new software, PcComptuerGuy urges customers to call for a consultation before spending money on a given program.
