A Computer Virus Could Cost You $20,000

In Ontario, a computer virus scammer called the phone of a homeowner in Norfolk County stating that his computer had a virus. The victim, in a flurry of anxiety, gave the scammer access to his computer including all personal files and bank account information. The next day, approximately $20,000 was missing from the victim’s account.
Though the story happens to take place in Ontario, scammers are prevalent throughout North America and, with a recent increase in robocalls, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to stop any time soon. This is why you need professionals who you can trust that have experience in virus removal.
We advise that you:
– Do not click pop-ups. At all. Ever.
– Do not accept unsolicited calls.
– Only open emails from places or people you trust.
– Enable the pop-up blocker feature on your web browser.
– Update all anti-virus software before doing anything on your computer.
Viruses aren’t the end of the world with proper care. With professionals like us at Computer Repair In Tyler, we can scan and erase nearly *any* virus. Call us today at 903-858-4383

When Your Tech Devices Get The Sniffles

Computers require treatment for illnesses, just like humans!

It's the holiday season! And for some, that isn't a good thing. The flu and colds are spreading and so are computer viruses. According to Enigma Software Group, on the upwards of 99.2% of computers get infected with malware. Specifically, between Black Friday and Christmas.
 

This is not a coincidence. Online traffic between Black Friday and Christmas increases during this time each year. And so do viruses both in the real-world and on the internet. Scammers know that many people will fall for their fake advertisements. These scams can generate more complications than one unassuming online shopper may expect. From identity theft to crashing your personal computer, these viruses are serious business.

Luckily, there are preventative measures that can help reduce the likelihood of getting a virus.
 
  • Don't click on links within your emails.
  • Don't click on advertisements. (Outside of Facebook/Instagram)
  • Call your local computer repair company for more information if you are unsure.
And that includes us. We will be happy to assist you in guiding you to safer shores. Don't worry if your computer is infected. We can help you out.
 
If your computer is becoming clunkier by the minute, feel free to call us at (903) 531-0377. We're here to help. Hope you had a Happy Holiday and have a Happy New Year!

December Deal of the Month

Computer viruses are a hassle. Plain and simple. Seemingly harmless to some, they can pop-up at a moment's notice and wreak havoc on your computer and your computer's stored information. Oftentimes, these pesky viruses degrade the security of your computer's software performance and can even lock your computer from accessing certain files. Yesterday was National Computer Security Day. A day dedicated to spreading awareness of the up-to-date trickery scammers are using and how to prevent such a problem from happening in the first place.

For our December deal of the month and in light of National Computer Security Day, we’re offering a reduced cost of $89.99 security checkups for all desktop and laptop computers. We’ll give your computer a thorough scan and root out any adware, spyware, viruses, or ransomware that has found its way onto your system. We will also install AVG Malware Bytes (free version) to prevent any further issues with your computer's security.

Just because your computer seems to be acting fine doesn’t mean you are completely secure. Get your Mac or PC checked out today from Computer Repair In Tyler. For more information, call us at 903.858.4383 or email us at info@computerrepairintyler.com

Here is a video of owner Jacky Ouin with ETV Software on CBS 19 talking a little about how important it is to keep your computer secure and some tips and tricks to prevent such a disastrous situation from occurring:

Is My Old Computer Worth Repairing or Fixing?

See This Old Computer?

It's a 14 Year Old iMac G4.

A customer brought this old computer in for us to recover his data from the hard drive. Since we work on out-of-warranty Apple machines, we were able to help him with his problem. The computer was completely dead, but we were able to retrieve all of the data from the hard drive so that he could easily transfer the data to his new machine.

You may be asking yourself, "how do I know if my old computer is worth repairing or fixing?". There are several things to consider:

  • Q: How old is your computer and how is it configured?
  • A: You probably already know how old your computer is, but we can take a look at it and determine the configuration and scope of the repair.
  • Q: How much are new computers selling for?
  • A: We can let you know how much a repair would be for your old computer, and offer to find costs for new computers so that you can have options. Many times, we do the leg work and find new computers for customers.
  • Q: How much is the diagnostic or repair cost?
  • A: We will throw our diagnostic fee out the window if you decide to let us do the work.
  • Q: How long will the repair take?
  • A: We have very fast turnover on most computer repairs. Many times, our customers are surprised how quickly we are able to get their computer back to them or find a new one.
  • Q: How soon do I need my old computer running?
  • A: We would imagine you need it soon, and that is why we are so punctual.
  • Q: How soon do I need a new computer if my old computer is unrepairable?
  • A: Again, we know having a working computer is paramount to almost everyone - we can help you find exactly what you want affordably and quickly.

At Computer Repair in Tyler, we can take a look at ANY machine, new or old, and offer solutions and recommendations for what you should do next. Most people replace or upgrade computers every 3-5 years on average. If your computer is older than that, then it may not have the most current hardware features to make repairing worth while. If your computer is running old versions of Windows or macOS, then Microsoft and Apple may have possibly stopped supporting those versions. Currently, Windows XP is no longer supported and extended support for Windows Vista will end on April 11, 2017. Additionally, Apple's only supported versions of macOS are OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra, which was just released a couple of months ago this year. If you are running unsupported operating systems on your old computer, and it can be upgraded to a current version, your system's performance may benefit from an upgraded operating system. In that case, you should bring it into us for the upgrade.

If you are wondering what you should do with that old computer at your home or office, give us a call at (903)858-4383. Additionally, you can fill out our contact form to start your information gathering process. We respond to all requests very quickly! If you just want to stop by, we are open from 8:00 - 6:00 every weekday, and we are centrally located in Tyler on South Beckham close to the hospitals.
