MyComputerWorks Horsham Half price Mac & PC MOT checkups is back until 31st October

Here at Mycomputerworks, we offer an MOT service to assess how well your computer is working before something serious may go wrong. If your computer seems a little off its game these days, you’re in luck as we’re running half-price MOTs for the next 4 weeks until 31st october. Get in touch and we’ll give it a good once-over.

What exactly is a MOT? Our MOT service is a simple check-up that will clean up your files, clear away the cobwebs (sometimes literally), tidy your components and assess whether or not everything is working the way it should. More specifically, a Mycomputerworks MOT includes:

System Overview: We’ll run system diagnostics and if we find a particular component that needs to be fixed or if you’re due for an upgrade that will allow you to get more out of your computer, we’ll let you know about it and let you decide how you would like to move forward.

Operating system Check-Up. We’ll fully check your operating system and make sure there’s nothing slowing your computer down. We’ll get rid of temporary files and clear anything that’s keeping your machine from operating to the best of its ability.

Hard Disk Check. If your computer has a HDD (hard disk drive), we’ll run some house-keeping programmes to make sure the file is intact and running properly. We’ll also assess the integrity of your drive and keep an eye out for any signs of early failure. (If we detect signs of early failure, it may be time for you to upgrade to a SSD, or solid-state drive.

In-Depth Internal Clean. You would not believe the things we have found inside some computers and you’d be surprised by the amount of dust and dirt that manages to find its way into the body of a machine. By removing dirt, dust, hair and other debris from inside your computer, it will run cooler (two thumbs up for less overheating!) and will help you save on precious battery power.

External Clean. We’ll buff out smudges, deep clean your keyboard, and make your screen glisten again with a thorough exterior clean. The computer cleaning products we use are antibacterial for a super clean germ-free finish.

Microsoft Windows 10 has a keylogger enabled by default – here’s how to disable it

Microsoft Windows 10 has a keylogger enabled by default – here’s how to disable it | Privacy Online News

https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/blog/2017/03/microsoft-windows-10-keylogger-enabled-default-heres-disable

What is a Keylogger?

A keylogger, also known as keystroke logging or keylogging, is a method of tracking the strokes on a keyboard without the knowledge of the user. This information is then collected and used to access private accounts or collect personal information. Keyloggers can come in the form of software, hardware, or external monitoring such as acoustic analysis or electromagnetic emissions. Software-based keyloggers use the target computer’s operating system in various ways, including: imitating a virtual machine (hypervisor-based or virtual machine manager), acting as the keyboard driver (kernel-based), using the application programming interface to watch keyboard strokes (API-based), recording information submitted on web-based forms (Form Grabber based) or capturing network traffic associated with HTTP POST events to steal passwords (Packet analyzers). Alternatively, keylogging can be done without installing software and can rely on modifying BIOS firmware (firmware-based) or installing a hardware circuit between the keyboard and the computer that logs keyboard stroke activity (keyboard hardware). Acoustic keylogging monitors the sound created by each individual keystroke and uses the subtly different acoustic signature that each key emits to analyze and determine what the target computer’s user is typing. Electromagnetic emission monitoring can capture the emissions from a wired (plug-in) keyboard from over 60 feet away using a wide-band receiver to keylog. Besides using standard malware-avoidance techniques, using a virtual keyboard (search your Microsoft operating system for “OSK” –On Screen Keyboard) can be used to type in passwords instead of your physical one and can thwart most of the simple keyloggers.

This was the first time I had used MyComputerWorks but would thoroughly recommend them. Darius was so friendly, helpful and sorted my laptop problem out very quickly. He also discovered viruses etc that I didn’t know were there causing problems. Many thanks.

Thoroughly recommend MyComputerWorks, we have had our iMac memory upgraded and replaced the old slow hard drive with a nice fast SSD drive which has given it a complete new lease of life. Our MacBook was also messing around, one new battery later and a solid state drive upgrade, it’s been like like a brand new Mac! Very friendly and helpful, always very accomodating. A Stirling service !

Once again Darius has come to our rescue. He responded quickly, reduced the problems down to a manageable and understandable state, then solved them quickly and efficiently. What more could you want?

I have been a customer

I have been a customer of MCW for just over a year and I have constantly been delighted with the excellent service I receive. Darius is knowledgeable, helpful and very quick at addressing any problems I encounter. As a first-time MAC owner (also purchased via MCW), I am utterly converted! As a freelancer, my business is dependent upon everything functioning as it should and having minimum downtime when things go wrong. Thankfully, Darius has been extremely responsive and it gives me great peace of mind knowing I can rely on his expertise if I experience technical issues.

Fantastic service. Darius was great, super friendly and very helpful. We rang one afternoon hoping that we might be fitted in sometime in the next couple of weeks but Darius sorted out our Mac laptop that same afternoon! Would highly recommend. Thank you Darius.

Great service! Speedily diagnosed my MacBooks weird behaviour down to the battery, fitted a new battery at a very reasonable cost & Space Avocado is on her way again… Friendly, fast, efficient and affordable. Space Avocado will return. Thank you so much!

I knew in July Firefox

I knew in July Firefox would no longer support my 12 year old WindowsVista so I had the dreaded task of finding a solution. The first 2 contacts said I would need a new pc. By chance I came across Mycomputerworks and phoned. I was greeted by Darius who clearly knew what he was about and explained it to me in words I understood (I have basic knowledge). I dropped off the hard drive to him the following day, he phoned the next day with a report and returned it to me the following day. He also ordered a new printer and connected it all for an additional hours labour. He upgraded my pc,gave additional memory, cleaned it up for a very fair and reasonable cost. So my pc was returned as it was, but upgraded and faster! I count my blessings when I found Darius.
He is professional, gives an honest opinion and carries out work in the best interest of the client and computer. I had a subsequent problem and Darius came out the same day. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Darius and the work he did for me and know who to call in pc crisis! Am so grateful.

I took my personal laptop

I took my personal laptop to My Computer Works and was told it might be a few days to fix due to waiting for parts. I was amazed to get a call the very next morning telling me it had been fixed. Its super quick and like new! Friendly and Fast! Highly recommended.

Honestly, I don’t think you

Honestly, I don’t think you could find a more honest, down-to-earth person to work on your computer. Darius went above and beyond to sort out my issues, and I would have no hesitation in sending anyone with any computer issues to see him. Thank you so much for spending so much time on sorting out my machine, and for getting it back on track.

Spot on! Very friendly, helpful, professional, just what you need to fix a Mac. No need to buy a replacement for a few more years, performance is better than I ever remember.

Cannot recommend Darius highly enough:

Cannot recommend Darius highly enough: he took my beloved 17″ MacBook Pro and made it feel like a new machine again. Actually, I could argue it is better than it was when I bought it 5 years ago. Maxing out the memory and the addition of a new 1TB SSD drive was an easy overnight job – and he even fixed the broken feet on the bottom! I am beyond pleased and amazed – thank you SO MUCH!!!

John McCabe

After being quoted over £700

After being quoted over £700 by Albion (certified Apple repair centre) for the repair of my macbook pro I was recommended Mycomputerworks and I’m glad I was. No new logic board, no new top case and no extortionate ‘original box’ fees. Darius listened to my issues and diagnosed the problem for a fraction of the price. The only delay was in Darius receiving the parts. Once received, my once doomed mac was in fully working order the next afternoon. A++

Top job done on a

Top job done on a gaming PC . Couln’t be happier. Brought a poorly performing suposed gaming computer purchased at a well know high street shop, that wouldn’t run my games properly. 2 days later I have the superfast PC that I had dreamt of, after some upgrades and genius tweaking, its now running my games in great resolution and great frames per second. No nonsence & a very clear approach as to what needed to be done. Highly recommended!

Having had a problem with my MacBook, I thought that an Apple store would be the best option to find a solution, how was I wrong! After a very quick diagnoses, honest opinion on the problem, Darius had a solution within a couple of hours! No comparison to 5-10 working days and significant price hike given to me by Apple directly! Darius can't be more highly recommended.

I asked MyComputerWorks (Darius) to source me a MacBook Pro to use for my DJ set up. Darius found me an amazing MacBook with the highest specification which handles my Serato DJ software with ease. I will be using his services in future without fail and will also recommend him to everyone else.

Bloomin marvellous. Whatever the problem there is not only an answer, it's provided efficiently, professionally, and as another post says, you can absolutely trust this guy will deliver. It's astounding how much he knows about this subject. iT has infinite depth and his knowledge is immense. But his dedication and determination. They're unmatched. Don't be surprised to see NASA using him
