Please be advised that, in order to keep costs and prices low, I do not have a storefront. Please do not go looking for my store! I offer "traveling" consultant services at your home or business. As a result, my prices are often half of what you would expect to pay at the big stores. Please call Jim at 281-773-4772 for an appointment or more information.

Why are new laptops so inexpensive?
They're LOADED with spyware talking to the mother ship. Junkware publishers are subsidizing computer manufacturers. They've got junk installed that you don't need or want hogging resources. I'll take care of these problems for you and, in addition, create recovery media for WHEN, NOT IF, the hard disk fails, and help you build a backup plan. Please call to make an appointment. "On-Site - At Your Service!"

Need a new phone or computer cable and jack?

Planning on getting a new Windows PC? For safe use on the internet, you’ll need to have it set up properly – personal data migrated to the new system, recovery media created, bundled junk software removed, firewall holes closed, Antivirus installed and configured, all critical software updated, backup plan and schedules in place; etc. A new computer is not safe for use until this work is complete. I can do this work for you for way less than you may think. It usually takes takes two days. Please call 281-773-4772 for an appointment.
