    I had a corrupt OS on my work computer; Randy asked a lot of questions over the phone and then, even though he was busy on other jobs, found a way to get to my office that same day. He explained what the problem was, what it would take to fix it, and kept me up to date throughout the process. He even recommended and made some upgrades to my software, and made sure everything was up to date and better than it was before. He even saved all my old files! Super nice guy, and took great care of me. Highly recommended.

    Did LBTechGuy do a good job? Absolutely! LBTechGuy did a great job! I hired LBTechGuy to repair my computer that was freezing at almost every turn. When I tried opening a browser, it took forever, if it opened at all. If I tried using software, it ran very slow, working intermittently, making getting anything done almost impossible. After he repaired my computer, it ran like I hadnít seen it run in a very long time, as intendedÖproficient and fast! He is professional and friendly and also went beyond the call of duty in a number of ways! He explained things to help me keep my computer running efficiently, exposed computer download scams I had fallen privy to, and even helped me save money I was unwittingly wasting. (I donít want to set you up, LBTechGuy) But after all of that, he even gave me a substantial break on my bill! I would, without any trepidation, highly recommend LBTechGuy!
