The friendliest computer repair in Prior Lake.
Residential computer repair service is most economically priced when done here at our office in Burnsville MN, just east of the Burnsville Center. We offer free pickup and delivery service for our seniors, veterans, active military families, and disabled customers within ten miles of the office. The most numerous complaints we get from users about their computers are specific windows errors and the oh so infamous "My computer is SOOO slow!" If your windows computer is just slow but still runs, we offer remote help desk service over the phone and internet which lets you stay at home while we remotely perform the computer repair in Prior Lake MN from our office and take care of the problem right in front of your eyes. This saves time, gas, and money- which reduces your final bill for computer repair in Prior Lake MN. You just need a working windows computer (yes, even a slow computer) and a broadband internet connection like Frontier DSL or Mediacom / Charter / Comcast Cable internet.
Wireless internet installation and internet security
Home wireless networks are among the most vulnerable. It's only because of misinformation or misunderstanding about how wireless security works. As a general rule, you should apply the highest level of wireless encryption that your equipment allows. Currently, most encryption types in use for home wireless networks are WPA and WPA2. If you're still using WEP, you should upgrade your wireless router and wireless cards or USB adapters on your computers to make your home network secure enough for banking and financial activity. Please do not use really short passwords, that's another weak link in the IT security chain! There are plenty of password generating sites out there, just choose one. Click, copy and then paste the password in to a text file and print it out on your laser printer. Don't store your password directly on your computer where it could be stolen by malware or viruses. Remember even though the big long passwords are a pain to enter on each device, you only have to do it one time and your pc will remember from then on.

We tuck in all the wires we possibly can, we use zip ties and or velcro wrap to keep all cables neatly tucked up under the desk or inside of a hutch. A neat computer installation prevents the accidents later on when someone's foot hits the power switch or unplugs an important cable.

How come I need a Computer Backup?
On site or off site backup is such a very important part of your recovery plan. Call us and we can work with you to develop a great backup plan that helps you avoid unnecessary expenses later on for data recovery. Putting the plan in action will make sure all your critical data won't be lost at the time you need it. Data recovery (if you're unlucky) can be extremely expensive. To prevent a huge bill down the road, you should set up an automatic cloud or local backup service. Your backups should be scheduled in the off hours when you aren't using your PC so that it does not slow down all the fun you're having!
