Technology in the home means something more everyday. We use technology for communication, shopping, entertainment, business, research, and anything else for which we can find a program or App.  And the list grows larger daily

Families are now fully engaged in the mobile world, computing can be done anywhere and everywhere, and the Internet of Things (IoT) brings us devices which are smart enough to sense our presence, listen to and fulfill our requests, and even inform us when we need to buy more milk.

In other words, the lines between our every-day world, technology, and the internet are blurred or completely absent.  The technology we use needs to be connected, protected, and running flawlessly, or disruptions occur.

Getting everything set up correctly and working perfectly together can be a challenge, Why settle for half way there when our in home tech services will ensure everything is working together as intended.  Call us at 847-826-0322 to make an appointment today, and we’ll get your technology in line.


Getting everything connected and up and running perfectly can be a challenge. And using our technology efficiently and to their fullest can be a daunting task.  All too often we wait until things get intolerably slow or broken before we get it fixed, or just replace it with something new, just to start over.  That expensive cycle can often be substituted with the assistance of an expert who takes the time to understand what you’d like to accomplish and prepares your technology to serve your present and future needs, sharing insights to make your experience more fulfilled and enjoyable.


Internet Security has become an increasingly demanding concern with the many Internet-borne threats we all face today.  Email can be a conduit to the underworld, who make huge profits from our valuable information if given a chance.  And intrusive viruses and spyware can damage our data or share our secrets if we let them. Also, ransomware has plagued more people every day, holding their hard work and memories hostage. Each of these threats has their means of doing their job, and the ways to watch out and protect yourself varies significantly.

Since most infections happen because of an email or web click on an infected object or visiting an unprotected site, gaining insight of what to look for and what to do is largely based on using the best way to prevent an infection or worse.  Computer Nirvana takes cyber-security seriously and keeps you informed on how to stay safe when new threats come to the forefront and things you can do to increase your confidence when emailing and using the web.

The takeaway is that mindfulness to recognize these traps and security programs to recognize and stop them is essential.

We enjoy getting new equipment, but don’t always know what exactly to do to prepare it for optimal use.

Having an expert available will help you make the most from your new investment.

When we purchase our computers, we plan to keep them for years.  After all, they aren’t free, and over time we prepare them to serve our daily lives.  But over time the computer starts to slow down, programs don’t work as they used to, or little things that were a mildly annoying start to become intolerably exasperating.  It’s time for a tune-up.

A tune-up could mean simply finding and eliminating an issue or two that is dragging down the whole system, or a simple system change or upgrade that breathes new life into an aging system or both. Often new years of service can be had from a computer for a fraction of the cost of a new system. You'll be amazed at how well your computer can perform.

Call us at 847-8260-0322 to get your computer performing better than you could have expected.
