Computer Checkups Bring Peace Of Mind


Flu season has come and gone, but allergy season has reared its ugly head and most likely there will be some sort of summertime stomach virus that will have us all in a panic.

We’ll stock up on the best over-the-counter remedies, drink plenty of orange juice, and stay away from elementary school cafeterias.

We will do everything to avoid these annoying, and often painful, sicknesses. Who wants to spend the summer cooped up on the couch watching Dr. Phil when we could be out hiking, relaxing on the beach, or reading a good book? We’re just not the same when we’re sick.

Well, sometimes your computer just isn’t itself, either. Just like you, it doesn’t perform well when it’s sick — so it’s important to get the proper “medical” attention for your computer immediately.

Your computer will surely cause you headaches if it is suffering from a virus infection. Just like us, your computer will lay dormant, act slowly, and complain about everything (you know the complaints: “error,” “illegal function,” or “cannot perform task”).

Whether it be diagnosing and treating a virus on your computer or installing software and other measures to keep it healthy, it is important to actively campaign for your computer’s health.

Installing the latest antivirus software is an absolute must. Not only do antivirus programs protect your computer from damage, they also prevent you from accidentally passing viruses to family and friends.

Nobody wants to be the one responsible for wiping out Dad’s picture collection. Now is the time to act, before it’s too late.

If you need a little help, Computer Problem Specialists is extending its free service to the community to include all the tools necessary to clean up your computer. Visit for a list of free virus scans, system cleaning tools, and other “medical” procedures available for your computer.

These tools are absolutely free of charge with no obligation. No need to stress out about the complexity of running scans and patches, either — step by step manuals and free technical support will help you through the process.

Also, as noted previously, it is important to take steps to prevent the Conflicker virus from controlling your computer.

Our staff is ready to help you scan for this pervasive virus and install the appropriate patch from Microsoft — free of charge. We apologize to those who have not yet been able to complete the process due to the overwhelming response or for some other error along the way. Call us at (928) 468-0000 if you encounter any problem.

Think of these tools as your computer’s hospital, pharmacy, and health club all rolled into one. We’re ready to treat or prevent even the nastiest of health issues.

Take these simple steps to clean up your system ... then you can use your healthy computer to search the Web for great deals on hiking boots, beachside hotels, and the latest best sellers.

Here’s to a healthy summer — for you and your computer.
