Repair Service for Personal Computers

Having a problem with your personally owned computer?

Did you know?

* A Windows computer without virus protection, and on the Internet, will likely become infected with a virus in less than half an hour.

* The vast majority of personally-owned Windows computers that come to the IT House for service are found to be infected with viruses and/or spyware.

* It can take several hours to scan a computer for viruses and spyware. This is often not a single process, but can require multiple passes with different tools. Some infected computers have taken more than six hours to scan.
