Computer Repair FAQs
While Trusted Home Experts provides on-site and remote help, these are often utilized for more regular repairs and check-ups and are priced on an hourly basis. More complex services, such as virus and malware removal, operating system repairs, and hardware upgrades, need more time and more regulated processes in controlled conditions, including, most importantly, backup and data protection for your machine. Most off-site repairs are conducted at a flat rate fee, making them more inexpensive for the client and allowing us to provide a lot more comprehensive and thorough service.
The majority of fixes take 2-3 days to complete. In certain cases, such as when components must be ordered, repairs may take longer. Trusted Home Experts attempts to utilize only high-quality, frequently original equipment replacement components, rather than cheap, knock-off, poor-quality parts that will fail in a short period of time. These components are not always easily accessible, particularly for older systems, so locating the appropriate replacement parts may take some effort.
This is difficult to respond until we have had an opportunity to properly assess the problems you are experiencing with your computer and what it will take to restore it to full functioning condition. When we schedule your free initial consultation, we will ask you about the problems you are currently experiencing with your computer and what you expect to happen, then make an initial assessment of what needs to be done to ensure your computer performs as you expect it to and provide you with an estimate of the repair cost. The final invoice may be somewhat higher owing to unanticipated complications that arise during repairs on rare occasions, however Trusted Home Experts will always contact you to approve the extra expenses before to conducting the additional work. The majority of repairs are covered by our normal $129.00 flat rate service cost, plus any extra parts or services needed.

Every day, more than 150,000 new types of viruses and malware are produced. The most typical methods they enter your system are via software downloads from illicit download sites, weaknesses in your existing installed software, clicking on malicious links in emails, or visiting a hacked website, even if it is reputable and well-known.
The following are the greatest strategies to secure your computer:
- Using an effective virus/malware protection solution
- Run as a regular user rather than an administrator.
- Finally, it boils down to how computer users behave when using the Internet.
- Ascertain that you are protected by both a software and a hardware firewall.
- Updating ALL of your installed applications
- Never click on links in emails unless you are 100% certain you know where the message came from.
We all prefer it when things are free, don’t we? ‘You get what you pay for,’ as the phrase goes. While no anti-virus solution can provide a 100 percent guarantee, the present state of virus and malware assaults on today’s computer systems leads Trusted Home Experts to no longer suggest any of the free anti-virus programs now available. They just do not provide the same level of security as premium solutions. When you pay for your anti-virus software, you receive significantly superior protection than any of the free options. Trusted Home Experts has put together a complete bundle of various items that, when paired with the other actions outlined in a previous question, we believe provides the greatest security for your computer system.

This is a frequently requested question here at Trusted Home Experts. If you want to keep track of who is using your computer, we have some incredible unique software that enables the owner to view what the user is doing with their computer. It keeps track of chat chats, emails, websites visited, and even screen grabs. All of this is absolutely invisible to the computer user and may be seen from any other computer connected to the internet.
We also provide investigative services to customers who did not have this software installed and are curious about what other people are doing on their computers.
Yes, we can recover erased data in many circumstances in-house, and if we can’t, we can direct you to a data recovery professional.

Again, stop using the computer immediately and bring it to our store for the highest recovery prospects.
