Like dogs, computers need attention or they will begin to run more slowly, fetch the news sluggishly, and chew up all of your favorite CDs. Tame man's best mechanical friend with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a complete computer tune-up at Data Center in Dearborn (a $166 total value). A tune-up includes the following:
- Virus and malware removal (a $99 value)
- Computer cleaning (a $19 value)
- Two hours of general labor, including disk defragmentation, registry cleaning, and system updates (a $48 value)
Data Center is Dearborn’s new, fully stocked hardware armory, patrolled by dedicated, friendly software sentinels. Today’s Groupon gets the customer’s PC, Mac, or WiFi-equipped abacus a thorough tune-up at the hands of a certified staff. In addition to ridding the client’s machine of long-dormant electric viruses, technicians will gently dust the computer’s alphanumeric exoskeleton to prepare it for intense IMing sessions or its side job as a feline punching bag. Two hours of labor include system updates and registry cleaning, which removes needless programs from crowded hard drives.
Though Data Center has been around for nearly a decade, its pristine new location on Telegraph Road feels like it was opened yesterday. Staff members stock shelves with an epic selection of hardware and software for PCs and draw upon 20 years of experience as they stay ahead of every twist, turn, and barrel-tossing ape on the information superhighway. Server parts and accessories fortify desktops and laptops, and the Center's certified techs can purge hard drives of harmful viruses and malware and retrieve lost files from the far reaches of a malfunctioning motherboard or tightfisted HAL 9000. Active Solutions Group, the parent company of Data Center, specializes in IT solutions for businesses, including network cabling, workflow processing, and security.
