Your Computer Service in Fort St. James
COVID NOTICE: because of current conditions I prefer if you bring your computer to me. All computers-tablets-phones worked on will be wiped down before and after servicing. If you do need in home service, I will wear a mask while in your home. It is no more inconvenient to me than asking me to take off my shoes, it is your home after all.
Windows 11 is coming – this fall. It is planned NOT to work on older computers. Windows 10 will be good until 2025.
Viruses? Computer slow? Need advice or tutoring? You all know me, I’ve been fixing computers and Internet in town for over 25 years, I’m now based from home.
I am now able to come to you for your computer needs. In home service or pickup and drop off included. Complete range of onsite Internet troubleshooting and repairs for both business and home users.
Breathe new life into your older system!
Chances are, you’re not even using all of that big hard drive. Upgrade to a new ultrafast SSD and keep your old hard drive as a USB backup. Add a little RAM and clean up that startup and malware. Call me, it will feel like new once done. For far less than a new computer.
New computer? Recover your files, pictures from the old one!
New computer? $35 to set it up for best access and configure it not to spy on you and not waste resources. I can also recover your pictures and documents from your old computer, even if it’s dead and put them on a USB stick, backup drive or your new computer for you.
I was the guy who brought the Internet to Fort St. James way back when. Fort St. James was one of the first rural areas to get Internet access. From dial-up to ADSL and wireless-to-home access, I am able to pinpoint your problems (is it you, or them?) or even advise you on the best system to use at your location. With years of experience working with Telus, ABC and running Max, I have many contacts who can help resolve problems that trace to your ISP. If it’s your router or computer, I’m the first person for you to call.
Sometimes you want an all in one web service. Registrations, renewals, updates and assistance all for a simple flat price and one yearly invoice. Sometimes you want to learn how to make your own site, and a place to put it. Or maybe just need to be shown how to use Joomla or WordPress or how to FTP. I will also do simple but effective websites for you. Call.
You want to learn how to use your computer, or how do something with it, or on the Internet. Explained in language you understand and in a way you can remember. You don’t need someone who’ll tell you you need to buy this program or subscribe to that service, you’d rather someone who’s been mucking with computers as long as Bill Gates show you the right way first, so you can decide if that costly software will help you at all. Call me, I’m willing to tutor just you or even a group.
Buying a computer? – call for some honest advice
If you’re in the market for a new computer, call for some truly honest advice before you hit that big box store. Honestly the sales people there don’t know squat about computers! They sell vacuums on Monday, washing machines on Weds and tv & phones two days a week! They’ll steer you to the highest commission, easiest sale item and tell you it’s ‘better’. They’ll insist you buy a virus protector and extra warranty in order to earn an extra two bucks, not because you need one. Remember there is no brand name PC that is ‘better’ they all make good ones, they all make garbage ones.
Firefox is back! Edge is now = Chrome
Remember the other web browser, Firefox? Well it’s redesigned, faster and has all those customized features. Chrome spies on you for Google, Edge is just as good, but spies for Microsoft. Try out Firefox to surf the Net for you, not for some corporate billionaires.
