Show your computer some LOVE this Valentine's Day!
Is your computer running a bit sluggish; is it giving odd errors and locking up? Maybe your computer could use some pampering.

Computers get a lot of use during the Holiday Season, and even more with the amount of school closings we've had this year. Unfortunately, with the extra use comes extra possibilities of adware, spyware, viruses, fragmentation, ... A little TLC could go a long way to helping rejuvenate your computer.

Our System Optimization & Cleanup service is the perfect gift for your stressed out computer. Give your computer a "spa day" and we'll have it running in peak form. There's still time to take advantage of our $10 off Bring-to-Us Computer Repair Service. It expires February 14th, 2014, so don't wait.

Call us or book your appointment online at www.stpaulvirusremoval.com.

Just like in a human, the biggest time to get sick is generally in Winter and Spring, oddly, the same is true for Computers... though for different reasons. Because of the dual-sided nature of our business, one side handling your technology health needs and the other handling your human holistic/natural health needs, we will also include some helpful tips not just for your computers' health this month, but also for your human health.

Some tips for this season:

   Computer Health tips:

  • Make sure you have a good, up-to-date Antivirus program. We personally recommend avast! antivirus. This is what we use on all of our computers. You can download avast! directly through our site here:http://www.stpaulvirusremoval.com/self_help.htm. avast! offers both Windows and Mac Virus Scanners (Yes, Mac OS does get viruses), as well as one for your Android Devices (which you can download via the Play Store)
  • Make sure you have all the latest Service Packs, Updates, etc. In Windows, you can check the "Windows Update" feature, and in Mac, via the Software Update menu. You also want to make sure all your programs, like Java, Flash, Adobe Reader, etc, are also up-to-date, and with the latest version of avast!, the program will notify you of any updates that are available for many other programs installed on your computer. With the Premier edition of avast!, you can also set it to automatically update major 3rd party programs for you!
 
   Human Health tips:
  • Tulsi herb helps boost memory (helps strengthen the ability to digest information), while also helping to strengthen the eyes and helps to reduce the effects of stress. After hours of sitting staring at a computer screen, this fantastic herb, often used in tea form can be a nice pick-me-up. Organic India offers 19 varieties or blends.
  • For the Common Cold during this season, try: 1/4 tsp of Cinnamon with some Raw Unheated Honey in Hot Water 2 to 3 times a day. Also, Zand throat lozenges are great for busy people on the go, we love the Elderberry Zinc.
  • Lastly, a tip for couples... try this Ashwagandha Shatavari Drink to "warm up things" for Valentine's Day ;-)
  • For additional tips for this time of year, check out Psinergy Natural Health's Newsletters.

Psinergy TechWarrior St Paul Earns Esteemed 2013 Angie’s List Super Service Award

 
Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

Psinergy TechWarrior St Paul has earned the service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of service provided to members of the consumer review service in 2013.

[Continue on to the rest of the press release!]

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2013 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade; the company must be in good standing with Angie’s List, have a fully complete profile, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

April 8th, 2014 is quickly approaching and with it comes the end of the road for Windows XP and Office 2003!

The go-to operating system for over a decade has been Windows XP, and right there with it was Microsoft Office 2003. The official end-of-life (end of support) for both is April 8th, 2014.

This doesn't mean that your computer will magically stop working that Tuesday morning, but it does mean you won't receive any more security updates, service packs, or even support for new programs.

It's time to look at replacing or upgrading your computer. There are several routes you can take and we're here to help you find the path that works for you. There are a lot of great options including Windows 8, along with Start8 (brings back the classic looking Start Button we all love) and available touch-screen interface.

There's also a lot to learn with the new systems and we can help with those questions too.

Give us a call at 612-234-7237!

We're Taking a Vacation!

Gmail Down? 2/6/2014 @ about 10:40 AM

FYI --- Looks like Gmail (& Google Apps for your Domain) is currently down for most people... though Google hasn't acknowledged it yet...

Update @ 11:10 AM CST
It appears that some of the DNS settings for Gmail had changed, but some DNS servers didn't get the information, and didn't propagate correctly. Manually "Flushing" your DNS seems to fix this issue:

via Command Prompt with Administrative Rights, type "ipconfig /flushdns" then press enter.
