Technology, these days, moves far more quickly than it used to. Even if you are somewhat comfortable around computers, hardware conventions, operating system versions, program versions and even usage convention fundamentals change seemingly each year. Unless you love computers and don’t mind reading up on them all the time, these changes can be hard to keep up with.
If this is you, you might be able to find your way around on the computer from one day to the next, but may have trouble with some of the things that you only need to do occasionally. Until you find a way to be comfortable with them, you can always call upon the friendly experts at Electronic Minions to help out. You can count on us to find out what’s going on, find a solution to your problem, put it in place and have you on your way.
Need to set up parental control?
Finding the right parental control software and setting it up can be overwhelming, even for those who are at home with computers. Features can vary considerably from one software product or version to another, as can user-friendliness and monitoring accessibility. Depending on what exactly you need — videogame content filtering, profanity filtering, search filtering, recording and chat monitoring, or compatibility with the computers and phones that you use, it can be a lot to think about and difficult to know what’s needed to control these things.
We’ll listen to you, find the best products for you, set it up and hand you the keys. We’ll even suggest products for problems you haven’t had yet, but may come up later. You’ll know who to call when that happens! We can show you a better antivirus, fire software or a data backup system so that your kids can’t wipe out your computer with viruses or other antics. You’ll have the control you need, sitting in your cockpit, keeping an eye on everything.
Need to have a custom computer built?
If you have a custom computer in mind, you’re making a smart move. Not only do custom builds give you far greater computing power for your money, they are easier to fix if and when things go wrong— all you need to do is to call us in to swap out the offending part.
From selecting the best parts for your budget to putting them together and installing all the software that you need, we do everything. If you have an older computer, whether custom-built or ready built, we’ll even help you upgrade it — put in more memory, slap in a new operating system, you name it.
Is your network giving you problems?
Whether you have a home network connecting multiple computers and printers in your home or just the one computer connected to the Internet, networks tend to act up from time to time. For instance, what if you hate the weak Wi-Fi router that your Internet service provider gave you, and want a device of your own to cover every inch of your home and the pool? No matter what you need, we’ll find the right device, and have you up and running.
Maybe you just want to learn
If you’re completely new to computers or some part of the computing world that you need to be touch with, and don’t know who to ask or how to start, we are here for all the handholding that you need. We’re great not only at doing what you want done with your computer,we’ll show you how to get it done yourself, too.
