Good morning today we are with a customer at Leek wootton in Warwickshire ( Between Warwick and Kenilworth)
We are here because the customer has reported pop ups and other strange adverts on their desktop computer running windows 7.
We started by checking the start up files and registry which in this case looked fine then removed any unneeded tool bars such as Babylon, Deal Vault and such like, at this point we had still not found the root cause of the problems and thus suspected a root kit virus which turned up a problem similar to a Trojan Virus that had attached its self to the system files and deeper in to the registry.
Once this malware was removed the pop up adverts had stopped but upon testing Microsoft Internet Explorer was not opening new pages correctly, this required a reset of the browser settings and all was fixed.
We are with Paul Swanson Guitar Tuition at Greville Road on the Emscote in Warwick, we are here because the customer has reported that their MSI Notebook computer is running very slowly.

Good Morning, Today we are starting on a Desktop PC at Warwickgates. This PC was dead with no power so first of all we tried a new Power Supply Unit which resulted in no change so at this point we changed tactic and removed the video card and memory boards gave them a clean and retested still the same no power, next was to reseat the processor this fixed the machine and it was able to run. (if it had not worked it could have been a faulty memory stick processor or even the mother board and because of the age would probably have been uneconomic to repair).
Although the machine was now working this was not the end as it seemed some one had been playing on less reputable sites and had filled the machine with malware so much so that the machine ran like an old 286( the PC was running extremely slow), so we cleaned up the machine and got it running much better.
This afternoon we have 2 customers in warwick for the first we had broadband trouble. and the second one we had a machine that was running slow so we performed a malware scan and removed a trojan virus.

Good morning, Today we are at a customers on the Woodloes in Warwick, we are here for two reasons first is the computer is running Slow and the second is the internet has been intermittent, The Main issue here has been caused by malware which we removed by editing the registry, removing the malware and then running a Malwarebytes scan, The Second issue which did not help the speed was that the processor heat sink and fan needed some minor clean up maintenance as is blocked by Dust, Carpet and cat hair, We removed this and freed up the fan and the machine was back to working properly.
This afternoon we are with a customer in Warwick, We are here to repair a computer that is running Slow.
The Problem here was two fold in that the fan on the processor was clogged with a few years or dirt and carpet which increased the temperature , and the other was a Trojan Virus that was stealing the rest of the processor time, The End Result is a machine that functions much better.
