Getting Along With Your Computer
This week: Use a good utility to regain easy access to the Control Panel, and avoid bad utilities purporting to be driver updaters. Where the heck is Control Panel in Windows 10? Microsoft started making some strange choices when they introduced Windows 8. In Windows 10 they walked back some of the most outrageous ones. […]
I asked how your Windows 10 Anniversary Edition upgrade went, and my mailbox filled up pretty quickly. Half of you didn’t get it yet but want it. Half of you got it and wonder what happened. Interesting! Use the Upgrade Assistant to get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update If you haven’t received the Windows […]
What our customers say:
Computer Care Kelowna – Operated by a friendly professional.
Cate Eales was referred to us by my cousin in North Vancouver who reads her column each week. We needed a new computer/printer/system and didn’t know where to start. Cate came by, determined our actual needs, and made recommendations helping us to choose wisely. Then, she set up everything including the systems, security and backup along with full operating instructions that WE could understand – AND the numbers where she could be reached in case we encountered any mind-lapses! Her help is reliable, informative, up to date and applies directly to our own system; she is happy to walk us through any questions or will drop by to ensure we ARE on track. Windows 10? No problem! She does the work – my husband and I simply operate the system. Our rating is A+ – and, if you haven’t read her weekly e-mail news column – sign up! All those questions you are ‘afraid’ to ask are answered before you have to!
Cate at Computer Care Kelowna is the first and only person I call when I need help setting up a new laptop for my business, installing software, creating a backup, or solving a computer predicament. When my cyberphobia escalates to panic mode, Cate is able to skillfully and calmly problem solve and voila! a VERY happy, grateful customer! Then I get to return to doing what I love...teaching hatha yoga and yoga nidra meditation.
We have been using Cate for all our computer woes for the last six years. Not only has she solved all our problems, big and small, but we have learned as she fixes. Email questions are answered in a very timely fashion and we have never had to wait longer than a day or two for a visit to solve our problems. She has became Computer Guru for numerous family and friends. Highly recommended!
Because of my work I am quite familiar with most aspects of personal computers. However, I have learned that calling Cate on a regular basis to make sure my PC is running smoothly has saved me countless hours of “figuring things out”. I regularly recommend Computer Care Kelowna to clients and friends who always comment on the courteous, fast and knowledgeable service.
If you need your computer fixed or want to keep it running well, don’t waste your time! Call Cate Eales – I do!
