PC Selection, Installation & Setup:
So many choices, so little time… @ Home Computer Services can help you determine the best type of PC to fit your needs and budget, and provide the best sources for acquiring it. @ Home Computer Services can even procure or build the system for you if appropriate. When the system is ready, your technician can install and configure the PC, and connect it to your network and/or Internet access and even formally introduce you to your new PC.

PC Troubleshooting:
PC's are complex and when things go wrong they can become beasts. @ home Computer Service has experienced technicians and are adept at quickly figuring out PC problems, and in many cases fixing them right on the spot. In cases where hardware has broken down, your technician can determine your best options for getting the system back up and running, and provide replacement parts. In the process of troubleshooting, it can also be opportune to upgrade at the same time, to improve performance, storage capacity or functionality of your PC.

Hardware Installations / Upgrades:
Hardware installations can be intimidating even for people who are computer-savvy. Whether you're adding a scanner, a bigger disk drive, more RAM, or any number of other hardware upgrades (or replacements), @ Home Computer Service can help in a number of ways. We can provide the best recommendations for achieving your goals, the best brands and most cost-effective sources from which to obtain parts. @ Home Computer Services can also provide parts directly, and install them for you, while guaranteeing that things will work when it's all put back together. With @ Home Computer Services, you'll always get "plug and play" rather than "plug and pray"!

Software Installations / Upgrades:
Unfortunately, just like with hardware, software installation can be perilous and is often tedious, such as when upgrading your computer operating system. @ Home Computer Services will make any software installation or upgrade painless for you by making sure things are set up right. Our technicians know where all the updated drivers are, and they know the things that software manufacturers don't tell you in the manuals, such as how different software packages and options effect each other, degrade performance, etc.

Privacy and Security
Are you aware of all the different ways that private and potentially sensitive data (such as email, credit card numbers, family data, etc.) can be seen by other people you don't know or trust? @ Home Computer Services can do a security assessment of your current network, PC applications, settings, and habits, and recommend ways to keep private data private, while still getting the benefits of networking and Internet access. As part of our standard services, we can set up a firewall to protect your network against outside intruders.

Privacy/Security services:

o Privacy/Security assessment
o Firewall installation and configuration
o Operating system and application configuration/settings
o Establishing "best practices" for avoiding exposure of private data
