Those of us that have taken the time over the years to either rip music CDs to our computers, or download music have inevitably discovered how much of a pain it can be ensure that music is properly backed up, and playable from our other devices.
When you first get a computer or laptop, most security settings in Windows are set at their default settings, which are usually not ideal, and in some cases downright frustrating when you want to view certain web pages, or even download things.

Want to know how to run Windows on the Mac? You’re in the right place!
More of our clients are interested in switching to the Mac because of the bad taste that Vista left in their mouths, or because of what they are hearing about Windows 8. Most programs work on the Mac now, so there’s almost no reason not to switch, since you can run any version of Windows within a Virtual Machine (opens like any other program). So long as you don’t mind the learning curve and the fact Macs are more expensive, it might be the right decision for you.

Are you looking to print from your computer or laptop to a remote printer at the office, at home, or a friend’s printer? There are several services that offer the ability to do this, including Google Cloud Print.
We all want more desktop real estate. We are using more and more applications on our computers, and having to constantly move them around to access the ones you want quickly becomes a tedious process, or even worse, having to minimize and maximize windows as we need them.

It really comes down to personal preference.
We get calls on a regular basis from people who need their laptop screen replaced. They wonder if it’s even worth putting in the time, effort, and energy to get a new screen, but most of all are concerned if it’s worth investing the money. That depends on a few things.
Most modern antivirus products have the ability to detect if your computer is infected, but DNSChanger may prove difficult to remove, as it is a Rootkit and may require some nerdy steps to fully get rid of it, including signing into your router over the network and changing hte DNS settings there as well.
