I have been assisting people at Shoalhaven Heads with their computer problems since 2005. I am still very active in the area volunteering at the Heads Seniors Computer Club and the local bushcare, but still have time to assist locals with computer related problems. My current interest is helping with smart home setups – it’s amazing what can be done with a Google Home device and some smart power plugs. Give me a shout if you need some assistance with this and I have writen a blog post about it which you can read here.

The safe removal of virus and spyware infections is one of my specialities. I believe in doing all I can to safeguard your personal files by offering a backup facility as part of the disinfection process. Many companies try to avoid this extra work, telling you that it is your responsibility to backup your important data. While this is true, it doesn’t help you if, like most of us, you have put off this task. 
Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download

The best advice I can give you to protect yourself in this age of adware and malware that is becoming so prevalent, is to install MalwareBytes AntiMalware –  the link to get this excellent software is to the right. This product is what I like to refer to as ‘the gate at the top of the cliff’ – as opposed to ‘the ambulance at the bottom’ (your anti-virus software). While your A/V program might be able to clean up the mess it might not, so preventing infection in the first place makes more sense.

I have lost count of the number of customers I have visited that have been using one of the ‘security suites’ but still been infected by malware – in many cases hundreds of files. Do yourself a favour and buy the premium version of MalwareBytes. It may be the best investment you make to protect your PC, it’s files and more importantly – your bank account, passwords and credit card number! At the time of writing this – the cost is around $90 for two years protection which is excellent value.

I will treat you and your problems with respect and not try to baffle you with ‘geek speak’ or overly technical jargon and attempt to explain your problems and solutions to them in plain english and work with you to find the most cost-effective solution.

Please browse around this site and read my blog and if you have any questions send me a message from the contact page or give me a call.
