Virus Repair

What is a virus really? A virus is just a small program usually consisting of one executable file. You can get one by receiving an e-mail from an already infected user or even by just going to an infected website. Once the virus starts running, your system slows down or crashes, at this point the virus takes full control over your computer and allows you to make only changes that it dictates. The main goal of most viruses is to obtain your credit card information and the easiest way of doing that is to convince you to manually enter the information, normally through scare tactics.

Backup Service

Do you really need to backup? We have several companies and residential customers that would say definitely, YES! There is nothing worse then losing all of your data when it could of been saved for as little as 20 cents per day. So, now that you’ve decided to backup, what’s the best solution for you or your company. Do you choose an On-line backup service, DVD media,  low or large capacity backup drive. Lets take a moment at look at the different solutions available. On-line Backup Plus side: Off site backup, non-stop automatic backup, your backup is always fresh, if you get robbed or your place burns down there’s no risk of losing your data. No external storage problems, low cost, about $5.00 per month. Negative side: Very long recovery times up to a day or two for 30 gigs, shorter times for just a few hundred files. DVD media Plus side: You have your data at your finger tips, quick recovery. Inexpensive. Negative side: Data is never fresh, discs scratch easily, get lost, slow backup times could require many discs. DVDs and CDs have one foot in the grave and are soon to be obsolete. Low Capacity USB Thumb Drive Plus side: Extremely Inexpensive. Practically given away at office supply stores. Quick backup for small files like documents some photos. Can be carried on a key chain or easily put in your pocket.  Negative side: very low capacity, between 4 and 128 gigs and the 128 gig ones cost a pretty penny. Easily lost, washed or broken. Large Capacity Backup Drive Plus side: Data stays fresh and up to date. Enough space to hold all of your data, easily taken with you on travel. Negative side: About $70 dollars for a 1 terabyte, not really that bad. You get robbed, it’s gone also. Drives do fail. So now that you know the differences between the backup types you just need to make your decision. Want us to do it for you, no problem. It’s hard to judge backup times seeing there is so many factors involved. i.e., USB type, system speed, file size and overall byte amount. Normally, if you have over 40 gigabytes of information we will have to take the system with us. We require that you either have or purchase an external backup drive or internal hard drive to have the data moved to. You don’t need to get the backup drive from us but you do need to have one. Backup drives can be purchased by us or you for about $70.00.  Turnaround time is usually 1 day. Just give us a call and we can quote it over...
