When You Should Call for Home Computer Support

Patience may be a virtue, but not when it comes to getting your computer repaired. If your computer is experiencing problems or not functioning properly, you can either pack it up and take it to a shop and live without it for who knows how long or you can call a home computer support services company in Oakville that will repair it onsite and get you up and running fast.

Living without your computer is not an option these days, especially when you consider the average Canadian spends 75 hours each month on the Internet alone; that doesn’t even take into account time spent using different programs or playing games.

Instead of the inconvenience of having to send your personal computer or laptop to a repair shop, call an experienced, certified residential computer services and support technician that will come to your home and fix your computer so it’s better than new.

Problem with Wireless Network

Home computers are used for more than just typing. Thanks to the Internet and wireless technology, your home computer can connect with handheld tablets, home entertainment centres, security systems, printers, and copiers. While wireless Internet interconnectivity can make your life more convenient, it’s not foolproof and may require a professional to help troubleshoot potential issues and set it back up. If you’re having problems with your wireless network, call a home computer repair services company with certified, accredited staff and partnerships with leading technology providers.

Slow Computer or Data Loss

Most of the big-box stores that sell computers alongside office supplies and coffee makers have staff with limited training that also double as computer repair technicians. It’s not unheard of for these so-called technicians to use your computer as a way to learn how to troubleshoot problems. And if they can’t figure it out after a few days, all they’ll do is suggest you take it to another repair shop or even recommend getting a new computer.

If you’re experiencing a slow computer or have suffered from a loss of data, call an experienced residential IT support company. They will diagnose the problem and fix it while you wait. They will also be able to recommend alternatives to storing your data on your hard drive; cloud computing, for instance, is a worry-free way to back up and store all of your precious data. Should your computer ever experience a major malfunction or crash, the data can be recovered from the remote cloud site with ease.

Viruses, Spyware, and Malware

No matter how new or sophisticated your computer is, it’s still susceptible to computer viruses, spyware, and malware; not because there is necessarily anything wrong with the computer, but just because computer viruses and hackers have become more sophisticated and pose a greater threat.

Unless your security is completely up-to-date, your computer is highly susceptible to security breaches. Not only can your personal identity be stolen, but all the information on your computer can be compromised. This is especially true if the computer is being used by different members of the same household and who are also using the Internet. That’s why it’s important to make sure your computer is scanned and cleared of viruses and malware.

If you think your computer has a virus or other threat resulting from a security breach, it’s important to call in an experienced, certified IT technician who will come to your home. A certified home computer technician has access to all the latest software; that includes the most sophisticated antivirus protection upgrades. This keeps your data safe and secure and also eliminates the need to pay for upgrades and software licenses.
