Read reviews that mention:
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have an AAS degree in Electronics Technology and over 25 years of experience as an Electronics Engineering Technician in R&D and Product Development
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I worked in the technology field for over 25 years and I used technology to do my job. A big part of my job was figuring out how to get things to work together, because they seldom did out-of-the-box, and I enjoyed the challenge. I found that I really liked to help people that were less familiar with technology.... Now I run my own business doing exactly that every day!
- What types of customers have you worked with?
Most often my customers complain that their computer is running really slow and sometimes does weird things. Most often this is caused by malware (viruses, Trojans, rootkits, adware, etc.) Some form of malware is almost unavoidable these days, even if you have an antivirus and firewall running. I have many tools that help me detect and remove malware from my customers' computers and usually, it takes 3 or more of the tools to make sure the system to clean. Some malware is fairly harmless and not very difficult to remove. On the other hand, some malware can be very harmful and very difficult to remove. I've seen a lot of different malware and know how to clean it up... Sometimes I'll run into something I haven't seen before and I have to do a little research to figure out how to remove it... In the end, I haven't been beaten yet!
