Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. There are a few common areas that are frequently seen in both home and business.
First is virus removal. There are so many types of virus attacks; it can be a dangerous place for a PC. To name a few: Worms, Trojan horse, Boot-sector; macro, Memory, Root-kit, Mal-ware, Hijack, resident and Web-script. Arming yourself with the best protection is very important.
Second is failed hardware. There are hardware components that tend to fail more than others. Hard Drives, Power Supplies, Video cards and Motherboards are among those. Maintaining a cool and clean environment will increase the life of the PC.
Third is Data Migration and Backup. It is crucial that you determine a backup plan and put it in place. Even if your computer dies, most of the time if your hard drive is still working, we can get that data! If the hard drive does die, ensuring you have a backup in place will protect your files!
