I’m friendly, professional and can explain things with common terminology.

This is a fairly simple site, but bold, clean and effective for what it’s about. I can do more elaborate designs, and from scratch or with WordPress, the most popular platform to build a Website you can update easily on your own.
Other than building a website, the most important thing is getting it seen. Now a days, there’s often more work in promoting it than building it. This is often called SEO or SEM (Search Engine Marketing).
There are a lot of things that can be done to improve your website rankings, increase sales or whatever your goals are.
Remote Computer Repair
I can fix many software problems if your computer works well enough to go online. This can be done with one of a number of commonly used and secure programs you can download for free, such as Teamviewer or Logmein.
Windows has a version built in called “Remote Desktop” (though it’s rarely used) and Google Chrome also has a similar feature.
They are secure options, and you control when the connection is made. Each time the program gives you a unique password to give to me, which is required for the connection.
Payment is usually made through paypal and is relatively inexpensive.
Remote Computer Repair is a valuable tool for the technician and client alike. We’ve found it very useful. Some things need an in-person Technician to fix. However, for many problems, Remote Repair / Support is quicker and less expensive than waiting for an appointment.
PC Laptop Repair
Fixing the software on your laptop is like with a desktop. The hardware however is more challenging, but can done. It can be like doing surgery. Cracked screens, are the most common thing to replace.
If you bought a “cheap laptop” and need it fixed or improved, I can make a computer run like new again in most cases. One method is to erase and reinstall Windows / the hard drive, makes it run like it was from the factory, and 100% free of viruses.
Desktops are easier to work on as far as hardware. Its easier to open them, swap out and test parts, which makes them better for workstations in an office.
Its also easier to make them run faster than a laptop if that’s needed. If you are in need of repair for your desktop computer, just give me a call.
Is your computer slowed down and clogged up with Viruses, Pop-ups, Fake Antiviruses, Adware, Malware and similar programs?
Whatever you call them, there are many of them.
At least half of what I do with computer repair is remove Viruses. Most computers have some level of viruses. Some are more of a problem than others.
There are a number of ways to remove them, depending on your case. In addition, I have found some free Antivirus programs that works as well or better than the paid for versions I can recommend.
These can give you years of free protection, and worth more than the cost of a visit.
Computer networks are a major part of most businesses these days. I can set up your home or office network so your computers, printers, copiers, data storage and servers can talk to each other.
I can do basic copier or printer repair, and connect it to the network so you can print to it.
I do network (Cat5) cabling, and can configure wireless (wifi) connections also. I also worked for the local cable company, so I can also troubleshoot your internet connection.
I can configure Routers, Switches, Modems, Firewalls and other network devices to share the network and the internet.
Get a Start Button For Windows 8!
Are you having a hard time using Windows 8? A lot of people have. I can change the settings to make it much easier to use. It will look and run more like Windows 7 with some simple changes.
This includes bringing back the Start Button and Menu.
So far, everyone has loved the making Windows 8 look like Windows 7 again. It is so much easier to use. You can get to programs faster and don’t have to dig around for the program or file that you are looking for.
Its usually a simple and fast fix.
Speed up a Computer
Since we’re talking about how to improve your computer, how do you speed up a slow computer? There are many ways. I can do this as part of another repair, or as it’s own service. Virus and other junk on your computer can slow it down.
Also, nearly every computer has programs running in the background that you don’t need or never use. Most people don’t even know they have them.
When you install most programs, they often run in the background all the time, even when not in use. I turn off these programs and the results are quick and dramatic.
That’s just one of the methods for speeding up a computer. I can usually get a 30-80% improvement in speed within 5-10 minutes.

Now I freelance. My wide background allows me to help pretty much any kind of IT issue. I’m very familiar with the needs of both the home user, the small business owner, and staff in a large corporate office.

Remote Computer Repair
I’ve started doing a lot more remote computer repair or support lately. Most of it has been word of mouth. Its interesting to get random calls come in…”I heard about you from a friend or someone at work, they really recommended you”.
I have them download a free (and secure) program like TeamViewer and I’m fixing their problems in minutes. TeamViewer gives them a password to give me to log in. Once done and the program is closed out, it gives another password when it restarts.
So they control the connection. I talk to them on the phone while working and they give me the password.
So far it’s worked great! I’m able to fix almost anything this way. Remove crapware, malware, viruses, speed the computer up, install antivirus programs, better browsers, fix errors…check the oil, rotate the tires, everything.
It’s all been good feedback.
Sometimes even if I’m going to repair a computer in person, I’ll “remote in” to it before hand, to see what’s going on with it.
One of the things I do is offer free programs to people. Things they get to keep and save them a lot of money.
I have a bundle of them, which are a result of constantly looking and testing the best and newest free programs. The best free antivirus, malware removers, Office programs, browsers, cleaners, utilities, etc. You name it, there’s a free version of it.
Its can save you hundreds of dollars for the home computer user, and tens of thousands for businesses.
Nowadays, the free stuff is often better than the stuff you pay for. If you know which ones to get and how to to make sure they stay free. People are surprised until they start using these apps.
My usual workflow goes something like this:
- Diagnose what’s going on.
- Turn off unnecessary programs running in the background that are slowing things down.
- Uninstall crap programs that slow things down, cause errors, etc.
- Do virus scans with programs you get to keep and use forever for free.
- Install other free programs if you need and want them.
I got started in IT working for Dell Technical Support, many years ago. We wished would could have had such amazing remote repair tools like you can download for free now. Its like being in front of the computer you are working on.
I have some out of state clients, and providing remote support online and over the phone is like doing repairs on someone’s computer across town.
Windows 10 Repair
I’ve been getting a lot of Windows 10 repair calls since it started unofficially installing itself on people’s computers. Usually I hear that it ran ok at first, but within a week it was slow, wouldn’t work, had conflicts, errors, etc.
Unfortunately, the undo feature doesn’t usually work either. After 30 days, even that option is gone.
What has worked, is backing up a client’s data, then erasing and reinstalling Windows. The computer runs like new after this. Its also completely free of viruses.
One client had me install Linux on two of his computers for the extra security it offers compared to Windows 10. He seems to like it so far. It can be made to basically look like Windows 7 if you want. Or pretty much anything.
There was one client who wanted 10, even though the upgrade had froze his computer. I was able to back up his data, erase his computer and install a clean, full copy of Windows 10 from Microsoft. It ran better than the upgrade, and he was only using it for work, so he didn’t mind using it.
Repair Windows 10
“Repair Windows 10” has been a trending topic lately. More computer are being sold with it, more calls are coming in about it, and the issues it has are surfacing more.
Problems with incompatibilities, computers running slow and errors in general are driving calls to Repair Windows 10. Then of course there’s the new virus infections.
If you can, stick with an earlier version of Windows. Such as XP, 7 or 8. Unless of course you’ve started using a flavor of Linux or the program that comes with Macs.

Repairing All Brands of Computers
Some people work on just one brand of computer. Here, all brands are fixed. That includes Dell, Gateway, HP, Asus, Lenovo, Acer, Toshiba, Sony, Compaq, IBM, eMachines, Fujitsu and more in case I forgot one.
This includes repairs for both laptops and desktops. Each brand and even each model within a brand has it’s own design and issues. But for the most part the components are fairly similar. The biggest issue is how each one is taken apart to be repaired.
We don’t currently work on Macs, but we can setting up a wireless internet or install a printer.

PC Repair Services Deland FL
We’ve been in the PC Repair Services business for years. I’ve seen and fixed just about everything. Which is part of what keeps it interesting. I have multiple certifications and a lot of my business is repeat customers when I fix their other computers, and referrals.
I have found, as I was just telling someone today, that since I started giving people a better and not as well known antivirus program, repeat business has declined.
I mention the term PC Repair Services, specifically because some people call up needing someone to “Repair my pc” or “Fix my pc”.
Sometimes people just want it fixed, but usually they want to understand what the problem was and how to prevent it from happening again.
Some people define their computer as a PC, so we have to mention it here. PC means “personal computer”, and meant basically any computer that wasn’t a Mac.

Another area we want to focus on is Computer Help. Some people may ask for that specifically. It can cover or include all the topics above including things to do with PC Support and Virus Removal Service.
Virus removal is one of the most common things we do. Most computer have some kind of viruses on them. Many times they don’t seem to have much effect. But they can collect passwords, ruin your files and most commonly they slow your computer down.
So a major part of PC Support is about Viruses and Malware. Sometimes you know were the virus is and can do a removal manually. Other times it would take days to remove each one and a reinstall is the best way to fix your computer.

PC Computer Repair Like Macguyver
I have a lot of clients who bring me their regular computer or their backup. Most are home computer users, but many are small business owners. Those people are usually the easiest to deal with since they know what it is to run a small business.
They can appreciate what it takes to things faster. The typical computer shop will have your computer to you in 4-7 days. Sometimes longer. I usually can get them done by the next day.
In a case from a couple of days ago, I had a chance to put my Macguyver skills to the test. A client needed a computer to print checks for his large auto-body shop, but the tower was randomly rebooting itself. And the next day was payroll day.
After diagnostics showed no problems with the usual parts, I discovered it was the power switch. A rare but known issue for this model.
He didn’t have a week for parts to be shipped in, and he needed it repaired right away for his company to run. And he had no backup of the files on this computer.
So I figured out a way to bypass the switch, and rig it so he could touch a couple wires together on the front of the case, it would start right up. Touch them together again, and it would shut off.
I wanted to put a real switch on it, but the nearest Radio Shack is a half hour away. The important thing was getting the computer repaired and functional. He was really happy with it.
I had it back to him the next day, not 7 days, and it worked like a charm. He even paid me with one of the checks he printed, with a bonus added.
It was great that things worked out so well. Years of watching Macguyver paid off.
