Please be patient while I build this site. When it's complete I'll change this to let you know. Thanks!

Customer Quotes

"A computer technician could take me to proverbial cleaners based on my computer "knowledge"-which isn't more than turn it off and turn it back on again. When that doesn't work the only in-home technician that I actually would invite back is Aaron Vail. He has fixed my computers and saved my butt (and my data!) on multiple occasions, I wouldn't trust anyone else." - Matt R.

Handy Tip

Slow computer? When was the last time you cleaned it out physically? Dust buildup can cause a computer to slow down. I've seen many computers that acted like it had a virus but after a good blast with a can of air it ran much better.

I may have saved you money already!

Concerned Parent?

If you are concerned about the content your kids can be exposed to on the Internet I can help filter out adult, phishing and malware sites. No more porn!

Diagnostic - Free

I don't think you should have to pay to simply ask someone what they think could be the problem with your computer.

Computer Cleaning - $10

This involves the physical cleaning of your computer. Sure you could do this yourself but if you're too busy or afraid of breaking something I can do it for you.

Password Reset or Recovery - $20

Lost your password to a web site or email account? I can help recover forgotten password from Internet Explorer, Firefox, Outlook Express, Google Chrome, Opera, Microsoft Outlook 2002/2003/2007/2010, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, IncrediMail, Eudora, Netscape 6.x/7.x, Mozilla Thunderbird, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail/MSN, Gmail, MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, ICQ Lite 4.x/5.x/2003, AOL Instant Messenger v4.6 or below, AIM 6.x, and AIM Pro., Trillian, Trillian Astra, Miranda, GAIM/Pidgin, MySpace IM, PaltalkScene, Digsby and MORE. Certain limitations apply.

Tune-Up - $50

This includes physical cleaning, Internet cache wiping, various temporary folder wiping, reducing startup programs, defragging and data reorganization on hard drive platters.

Data Backup - $50 plus cost of supplies.

Backup includes, but is not limited to, putting all your important documents onto CD or DVD. You may want to do this if you have a lot of data that you want to keep in case your current computer crashes. This does not include the entire contents of the hard drive. This price only covers my service. The cost of the new hardware will be billed to you.

Hard Drive Imaging - $75 plus cost of supplies.

This involves making an exact clone of your current hard drive to another hard drive. If you have a hard drive that's about to die by making some really bad sounds, you want to upgrade to a larger one or just want a complete backup to restore to then this is for you. This price only covers my service. The cost of the new hardware will be billed to you.

Data Recovery - $50

I've had several people ask me to recover data and other important files from a computer that won't work. If you've lost the original operating system disks or have some other hard drive problem preventing the computer from running I can usually recover the contents from the hard drive anyway. Your important files may not be lost forever.

Computer Install - $50

I am more than happy to come and install a new computer in your home or small office.

Upgrades - $50 plus cost of supplies.

Upgrades can be fun. If you need a new Blue-Ray player, high powered video card, extra hard drives, more memory or anything else to boost the performance of your older computer I can help out. This price only covers my service. The cost of the new hardware will be billed to you.

Small Business

For the past 4 years I have been a Network Systems Administrator for a small environmental consulting company. I am the sole "IT Guy" here and manage over 25 computers, 5 servers, 20+ Laptops and a dozen user support issues per day for 20 employees.

I manage the Exchange server, file servers, in-house WiFi, remote access, DHCP, Active Directory, WINS, DNS, Network Topology, printers, faxes, plotters, backup servers, software purchasing and installation, hardware purchasing and installation, hardware troubleshooting, VPN, internet traffic filtering including QoS management, SharePoint server and management, custom FTP server and more.

Computer Recycling

I offer 2 kinds of recycling for your old computers.

I will gladly take your old computer to use for parts. Just because your computer is "dead" doesn't mean the whole unit is bad. I harvest the working parts such as hard drives, CD and DVD drives and cables. This is one way I for me to keep my prices low for cheap upgrades or repairs. During the scrapping process I wipe all hard drives from the computer using advanced overwriting techniques guaranteeing your data is gone forever.

I can also take your retired computers to a recycling center. This does have a fee associated with it which is $10.
