Cable and DSL Modem Installations

Although the major internet service providers have made the process of getting connected to the internet fairly easy and straight-forward, there are often snags or complications that can arise and confound the most intellectual among us when it comes to implementing internet connectivity. With a growing number of wires, devices, and security measures to complicate the issue, often the seemingly simple task of making an internet connection can seem overwhelming and downright frustrating. Why waste your time reading installation and user manuals, waiting on the phone for unintelligible computer service technicians, or dealing with the complexities of hardware and software relationships? The experts at PC Advisors have installed and troubleshot hundreds of internet service connections. Whether Cable modem or DSL, PC Advisors can quickly and effectively get the internet and email up and running for you or your office. Call PC Advisors at (203) 798-9647 today for any and all computer and network challenges!


Computer Tune-ups and Troubleshooting

As with any car or other mechanical device, our computes will occasionally fail or begin to perform at less than optimal. When this happens it requires a trained and highly skilled technician to accurately evaluate, diagnose and remediate the situation so as to reduce the amount of down-time caused by the failure. The experts at PC Advisors, skilled and knowledgeable in the operations and conditions of the common computer, can diagnose and implement computer repairs quickly and effectively. Because we are a locally based, community business, we have the ability to respond faster and more accurately than most of the large chain stores or franchise computer repair companies. Whether your PC is running sluggishly, is experiencing a specific and particular problem or is completely dead, PC Advisors will send a technician to your home or business and quickly resolve the issue; often in far less time than our “big-box” competitors. Call PC Advisors at (203) 798-9647 today for any and all computer and network challenges! 


Virus and Spyware Removal

Due largely, in part to media coverage, nearly everyone has at least heard of the concept of a computer “virus.” Just like its human counterpart, the computer virus is a software “infection” designed to infiltrate the operating system and/or programs of a PC and spread itself to other systems by various methods. However, there is yet another, less well-known, in some ways more insidious and more prevalent type of malevolent software known as “Spyware,” that currently affects, to one degree or another nearly all PCs connected to the internet. Spyware is software applications that are designed to track a persons activity on the internet for the purposes of sales or marketing. It is literally designed to “Spy” on those who visit or use web sites that deal in internet commerce. Left unabated, these programs will eventually begin to consume system resources like memory and computer processor time. As a result, many computer users experience inexplicable system sluggishness and compromised performance. Overall, virus and Spyware programs are written for a whole host of reasons. However, in order to keep your system performing at its peak, the most important thing to know about these “malware” applications is how to prevent and eliminate them. The experts at PC Advisors are fully trained and knowledgeable in the methods of preventing and removing all aspects of malicious applications like ad-ware, pop-ups, spyware, and viruses. We will come to your home or office and skillfully evaluate and eliminate any and all computer applications that are compromising the capabilities of your computers. Call PC Advisors at (203) 798-9647 today for any and all computer and network challenges!


Remote Desktop and Network Support

It seems there is nearly no task that cannot be made better and more efficient through the use of the internet. From shopping to banking to long-distance and local communications the internet has enhanced all of our daily lives in one or more ways. Why then should it not be so for computer support? The truth is that many support issues that have been traditionally handled on-site can more efficiently and more cost effectivly be dealt with remotely, using a high-speed internet connection. Our highly skilled and trained support personnel will contact you by phone or email to arrange a convenient time to provide service. Then, only upon your explicit approval, we will connect to your system via the internet from our offices. As long as you have a consistent high-speed internet connection to your troubled PC we can resolve your computer problems. Anything from resolving slow and corrupted operating system problems to software updates and installations can be easily accomplished while you watch us remotely control your system and communicate with our technical support staff through built-in Instant Messaging Services or over the phone.

Network Security Audits

Along with the increase of computer networks in the home, office and business environments also comes the rise in opportunities for digital mischief and computer crime by less than honest individuals. Computer networks, particularly those that are wireless in nature; too often allow easy access to network resources by unauthorized individuals. Whether it is neighbors tapping into an unprotected wireless access point or cybercriminals trying to infiltrate company files, network security has become an all too prominent issue in today’s fast-paced internet access world. If you or someone you know set up your home or business network you may have unwittingly left it far too insecure. There are documented instances in which owners have been locked out of their own networks or PCs simply by neglecting router security. PC Advisors will come to your home or office and quickly and effectively analyze the security of your wired or wireless network. Upon completion, a detailed written report will be submitted to you that fully describe a comprehensive strategy for securing your network and its resources. Don’t leave your network, your computers, and, most importantly your precious data at risk! Call PC Advisors at (203) 798-9647 today for any and all computer and network challenges!


Client-Server Network Design and Implementation

Maintenance Contracts

Anyone who depends on their motor vehicle is keenly aware of the impact that regular maintenance has on it. For many of us, our computers have reached or exceeded the level of importance, as much so as our cars in our daily lives. Bearing this in mind, does it not make sense to provide a level of support for your computers and network environment that meets or exceeds that of your car? PC Advisors wants computer users to know that the performance of a computer does not have to diminish over time! We at PC Advisors are please to be able to offer our customers a yearly service contract that provides the utmost level of computer security and performance. For a low monthly fee you can enjoy the benefit of continuous computer and network functionality. Viruses, Spyware, dust, dirt and hard disk “clutter” will, over time cause a new PC to slow to a crawl! The loss of speed and performance in your computer is not imagined but it does not have to be tolerated! Just as your car and other home devices such as your furnace benefit immensely from periodic scheduled maintenance, so will your computer and network equipment perform better if attended to on a regular basis. A service contract with PC Advisors means your computer productivity goes up and stays up! Computer down-time and loss of use becomes a virtual thing of the past! Call PC Advisors at (203) 798-9647 today for any and all computer and network challenges!


Data Backup, Transfer, and Recovery

None of us wants to endure the hardship of lost or corrupted computer data. However, the fact of the matter remains that ALL hard disk drives will eventually FAIL. The hard drive of your computer is like an office file system where all the documents, programs, and digital photos and music are stored. There are few things more heartbreaking for us at PC Advisors than having to tell a customer that precious, irreplaceable family photos or a vast music collection are gone, the long, hard work put into a school paper is lost and irretrievable, or that a customer’s business data has been irrevocably destroyed due to a hard drive crash. Loss due to hard disk failure is, more often than not completely avoidable. By simply taking the time to identify and backup the files on a PC that you cannot afford to lose, you will insure the eternal protection of those files. However, PC Advisors is aware that the overwhelming number of backup methods and applications often causes nothing but confusion and frustration among even many of the more sophisticated of computer users. Don’t allow the difficulties and confusing aspects of data backup to discourage and prevent you from securing and protecting your valuable home or business data! If you have recently purchased a new computer and need a way to migrate data from the old system over to the new system, PC Advisors can assist in this as well. Whether you want to secure your data by backing it up, migrate your data from an old system to a new system or, you have had the misfortune of a hard drive failure, contact PC Advisors for expert assistance by highly trained and certified technicians who will help you to ensure that your data is protected.
