CompuType IT Solutions hosted its first Belleville Chamber of Commerce event, Coffee Cup Connections. Coffee Cup Connections is an event the Chamber of Commerce puts on to allow each of the member Businesses the opportunity to host. We hosted this event in May 2012 and provided breakfast pastries, a brief presentation about our organization, the chance to do a brief tour of our facility, and the chance to engage with chamber members.
Jeff Harris, Senior IT Consultant, with 18 years of experience was the presenter and gave an overview of what services CompuType IT Solutions offers to its client base. The group had an array of questions concerning business technology. We would like to host other events as well but we need your feedback to know what you want to hear about. Some of the questions raised at this event were:
Is it ok to use two different virus programs?
The direct response would be yes, it is ok to use more than one anti-virus program however there is a catch. Every virus program you add to your computer will slow your PC down exponentially as it will take a performance hit. My recommendation would be to use only one anti-virus program and keep it updated at all times. Furthermore, make sure that you are getting all your windows updates from Microsoft and keep your PC/network appropriately patched.
Do you fix computers here as well?
Yes. We have a full service in-house computer repair department. Our trained staff will see you driving up and help you bring your equipment in to the service counter. We will conduct a brief interview to get the details of the issue(s). We will then give you an estimated time of completion and contact you with the repair costs to get authorization to perform the work. Upon authorization we will resolve the issues discussed and contact you upon completion to pick up the equipment. Upon your arrival to pick up your equipment we will discuss how the problem started and what you can do to avoid these computer repairs in the future.
