Privacy & security
Are you aware of all the different ways that private and potentially sensitive data (such as email, credit card numbers, family data, etc.) can be seen by other people you don’t know or trust? The Console Doctor can do a security assessment of your current network, computer applications, settings, and habits, and recommend ways to keep private data private, while still getting the benefits of networking and internet access. As part of our standard services, we can set up a firewall to protect your network against outside intruders.
Computers are complex and when things go wrong they can become beasts. Our experienced technicians are adept at quickly figuring out computer problems, and in many cases fixing them right on the spot. In cases where hardware has broken down, We can determine your best options for getting the system back up and running, and provide replacement parts. In the process of troubleshooting, it can also make sense to upgrade at the same time, to improve performance, storage capacity or functionality.
Hardware installations can be intimidating even for people who are computer-savvy. Whether you’re adding a scanner, a bigger disk drive, more memory, or any number of other hardware upgrades or replacements , The Console Doctors can help. We can provide the best recommendations for achieving your goals, the best brands and most cost-effective sources from which to obtain parts. We can also provide parts directly, and install them for you, while guaranteeing that things will work when it’s all put back together.
With The Console Doctor, you’ll always get “plug and play” rather than “plug and pray”!
Unfortunately, just like with hardware, software installation can be perilous and is often tedious, such as when upgrading your computer operating system.
The Console Doctor will make any software installation or upgrade painless for you by making sure things are set up right.
