Most of us nerds wish there was an everlasting gobstopper in computer form, where our computers are invincible, where no gravity, liquid, or cat can devastate our lives after hours of working on an essay, completing a work report, or doing graphic design work. Unfortunately, technology hasn’t reached that point but I believe it will at some point, but for now, there are other options when these devastating events occur. Instead of looking for a new computer to replace your old one and redo all the work you have already done, try looking up some computer repair shops near you first, this may save you some time and money. Here are 5 good reasons to use computer repair shops.
Screen Repair: This is a no brainer, if you broke a screen and your insurance has expired, don’t toss out your device just yet. Lookup computer repair shops near you, let them know the make and model of the device and have them give you a quote on how much the screen is and how much the labor is going to cost.

Data Recovery: A lot has happened in the year 2020, devastating fires, rioting on the streets, Covid-19 Lockdowns, etc. If you work from home and have all your files saved on your computer and a fire happens, it’s a scary feeling. You are probably thinking “I hope I downloaded all my wedding pictures to the cloud…” Luckily there is a chance your hard drive may be intact and we can save those files. Usually, if there is water damage, there is really no hope, but when fires happen there is a good chance that the components in the hardware are good, giving you the opportunity to look at those lovely pictures you took at the beach.

Virus Removal: If you notice your computer is acting funky and you think you may be dealing with a virus we can help you! We remove all sorts of crazy things hackers create to make your life miserable. We remove viruses such as Spyware, Rootkit, Trojans, Adware, Ransomware, and more. Spyware is a virus that allows individuals to retain confidential information covertly from the victim’s hard drive. Trojans are something that needs to be downloaded and isn’t self-replicating like a virus, but usually, this happens when you “accidentally” download something from an email. Adware is software that automatically downloads advertisements on your computer. Ransomware is when a hacker blocks access or threatens to publish embarrassing content in exchange for money.
