Computer Repair Required
I was just getting going on my Monday morning. Kissed my wife and baby goodbye, went to work, poured the coffee and got busy with all the projects. I started by running full computer diagnostics which all passed. YEA!
Then I powered on the system...
Crazy Computer Virus
The Virus has taken over the whole computer, exclaiming this scary message:
"The data on the computer is at risk and will be deleted in 5 minutes. To speak to an agent call the number on the screen. DO NOT CLOSE THIS PAGE"
IT Solution Time!
I am going to fix this laptop by giving it our Tuneup which will kill off any viruses or malware that has infected this system. I will complete the Tuneup by updating the system and optimizing it for optimal performance! Because the client is on our CarePlan they will not be charged our Tuneup - our CarePlan includes 100% discount on all labour fees! They get full daily computer backup - if the virus had followed through with it's threat of deleting data, we could still restore photos, documents and all important information on our client's laptop.
