We are also proud to announce computer security Tune-Up and Malware Removal packages. These will bring your computer up to date with all of the Microsoft security updates that have been released for your computer’s OS (Operating System). These updates include Service Packs; Anti-Malware (virus) software updates as well as any software updates required by the other programmes that are installed on your computer. We will also do a spring clean of your hard drive for no extra cost. This involves cleaning up temporary files; defragmenting your files; scanning your hard drive for any errors and cleaning the registry.
The Malware Removal package will return your computer to normal working in the case where it has been taken over by Malware. Malware is “malicious software” that includes virus’; spyware; scareware and keyloggers. A “quick and dirty” way to check if you have malware on your computer, is to go to the Microsoft website. If you see any pop-up windows or cannot access the website, then this is a good indication that your computer has been infected with Malware. The Malware Removal package includes the Tune-Up package at no extra cost! Please check out our current Price List.

We put the “fun” in fundamentals and the chic in geek!
We had a customer who called us complaining that their new Acer laptop would show the “Acer Empowering Technology” toolbar on the desktop every time they booted their computer. They didn’t like the way the toolbar cluttered up their desktop and were not happy that Acer had not asked for permission nor offered a way to easily disable the toolbar.
They had tried disabling the various features on the toolbar hoping it would stop the toolbar from reappearing.
For reasons only known to Acer, they didn’t offer an easy method to disable the desktop toolbar.
Upon arriving at the customer’s home who was just about ready to pull his hair out, we firstly looked in the “Startup” folder which you can view by going start > Programs > Startup. Looking inside the folder we saw the culprit. Simply right click the “Acer Empowering Technology” entry. Finally, select “delete” followed by the Ok button.
