I jumped out of bed this morning excited to post about a myriad of fun topics but my computer had other ideas. Actually, it wasn’t completely the computer’s fault. An update from McAfee essentially ruined the operating system. (We will not be using them ever again.) Lucky for me, my friend Jessica‘s husband Josh recommended NYC Tech Guys. I want to give them a big shout out because one of their techs was at my apartment an hour after I called them and they got us back up and running! They couldn’t have been nicer and didn’t leave until they were absolutely sure they had fixed all my problems. I highly recommend them to anyone in NYC needing technical assistance! To paraphrase their tag line, they make IT work!
ooh are you saying don’t update at big m? i have just spoken to the apple help line people and they told me to go there and get all my updates as my land line can’t cope with the bulk!!! you may have headed off problems for me too……..could you let me know please???/ thank you KG
Kelly – I have a PC and not a MAC so I’m not sure if the update harms all computers or just PC’s but my tech guy said not to use them. He installed AVG which is free. I would definitely be careful. It took three hours to get me back up and running!
Some days its better to just walk away and let those computers cool off…..sorry about your bad upgrades, that was me last week but my PC and I are friends again for now. Can’t live without IT guys handy. Best weekend to you.
thank you – i will proceed with caution! KG
I quit using McAfee also… no problems since then.
Wishing you a wonderful spring weekend.
I’m thinking I won’t update anything ever again. I couldn’t even get online after an AOL update on a 7 year old computer. Luckily a friend was able to remove the update but it took her all day.
