Like dogs, computers need attention or they will begin to run more slowly, fetch the news sluggishly, and chew up all of your favourite CDs. Tame man's best mechanical friend with today's Groupon: for $69, you get on-site virus, malware, and spyware service from The Friendly Geek in Cambridge (a $159 value). The Friendly Geek's service areas are Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, and locations within 30 kilometres of Cambridge.
The Friendly Geek's professional technicians conquer computer glitches and school clients in tips for maintaining a clean system. Promptly arriving at the scene of the algorithm accident, motherboard mavens scour the customer's machine for all traces of efficiency-killing viruses, malware, and spyware to optimize performance for Internet use, file storage, and marathons of self-challenged solitaire duels. While healing the hard drive, the genial technician also offers pointers on system maintenance and ways to ensure long-lasting cyber health. Should the virus, malware, or spyware issue be determined to be unrepairable, the full value of this Groupon may be used toward the cost of take-away OS service, hardware repair, or tutoring in advanced emoticons.
