Remote Support

We don’t even need to call to fix some problems.

For most minor PC problems, and even some major software ones, we can repair the PC without the need to call to your office or home, and without a lot of the expense. We can also solve a vast range of issues that occur day to day with computers, such as odd pop up boxes, license renewals for antivirus etc, program error messages and so on and so forth. As long as you have a working internet connection, we can access the PC. We can then take control of your PC keyboard and mouse, and deal with any problems. We can do this whilst talking through it on the phone, or through a chat box that will appear on your screen for the duration of the session.

Please contact us for more details or to sign up to the service. [email protected]

PC For Sale - refurbished ex-gaming PC.

I dont usually do this, but I did offer to help a customer who has just bought a new PC from us, and wants to sell his old one. We built it six years ago, and have serviced it annually, so we know its history.

We are simply advertising this for him, so it wont be us supplying it - it's a private sale.
We have fully refurbished it for him as part of the new PC sale deal. It will be for collection from here at ads computers, although the seller will be here for the sale.

The PC was very powerful when new, and is still a very fast system. It has an Intel i7 2nd gen CPU, a Radeon RX580 4.0GB graphics card, 16.0GB of memory. It has a 256GB SSD as the main drive, and a 1.0TB HDD as the data drive. It also has a built in wireless adapter. It will still play games, although it will struggle on the very newest games that require newer processors. This is ideal as a photographic PC or a PC for playing older games such as Counterstrike, World of Warcraft etc. The trade term is "light gaming".
It has the latest update of Windows 10 - 21H2 - installed, along with a standard software package. We will install any Office program or software etc for the buyer.

It comes with a relatively new wireless keyboard and mouse, and a 22" Viewsonic monitor.

Price being asked is £495.00. No offers though, as this is a good price in the first place.

Amazon & Visa credit cards

As you may well have read or heard in the news yesterday, after January 19th 2022 Amazon will no longer accept Visa credit cards. This is basically because Amazon claim the charges they pay have been increased from 0.3% to 1.5%. More detail about this is in the link below.
Amazon released a mailshot yesterday to all customers, one that will arrive over the coming days, outlining what's happening. BUT, they have included a link for a £20.00 voucher as "compensation" to affected customers.

Firstly, the link only works if you already have a Visa credit card on file with them.
Secondly. the are a plethora of scam versions of this email out there already.

If you get this email, whether its the real one or the scam one, dont click any links on it. I must reiterate this a dozen times a day as we get asked about email authenticity many times a day - never click on an email link unless you are a)expecting it, and b)100% sure you know its genuine.
The simplest way, with this Amazon example or any other email tempting you to click a link, is to delete the email, then access your account for that company direct from their website. If the email was genuine, the offer or reward will be there for you in your account settings.
Below is a copy of the genuine email. BUT - the fake one is identical in all but one respect. On Amazons email, the link takes you to your account settings. On the fake email, the link takes you to a copy of the Amazon website, and immediately asks for your log on details.

Its easy to avoid getting scammed this way - never click on an email link unless you are a)expecting it, and b)100% sure you know its genuine.
