Ely MN and Iron Range Computer Security

Has an unwanted website taken over your browser? Are you getting pop up ads even when your browser has been closed for some time? Are you infected with a spyware program that refuses to go away? I offer computer security services for the home, home office, and small business in Ely, MN, Babbit,, MN and anywhere on the Iron Range of Minnesota, including preventative services, maleware removal, and security maintenance contracts.

It's important to secure your computer properly - otherwise you may be putting yourself, your business, or your family and friends at risk. Malicious software can prevent it from working properly, can delete or corrupt your files and can allow others to access your computer and your confidential information such as user names and passwords. I can help you protect your computer using the proper software and procedure. Computer security is more than just updates and antivirus software, even though both are important.

Even the best security can't stop all computer infections. If your computer becomes infected with any type of malware, such as viruses, spyware, or software that causes your computer to slow down, I can clean your system, usually without reloading the entire operating system, and repaire the damage such software can cause.

Have important documents, pictures, or other information? A backup of this information is essential to a person's or business's well-being. Even after losing an important document, irreplaceable photo, or entire sets of financial records, some people still won't take the time to do proper backups. I can help you set up a backup system that works for you. Forget to back up and have a hard drive crash or other problem that caused data loss? I have the experience and tools to usually recover the data as long as the hard drive hasn't mechanically failed.

If you have wireless Internet access, then you need to protect your wireless access and the devices connected to it. Trade secrets, source code, or even a company's accounting files can find their way into those others hands. If you have customer data stored on your network, it's even more imperative to lock down access. A few credit card numbers escaping into the wild can permanently damage your customers' trust; just the possibility of credit card number theft can trigger regulatory disclosure procedures in some states. And wireless network access doesn’t stop at your business's walls; if your network is open, anyone can sit outside your business and use your Internet access to send spam, download pirated software or other files, or use it to commit computer fraud.

I can help you set up your wireless network so that it is appropriately secured, as well as help you with connecting computers, wireless printers, game systems, smart TV’s, network connected blu-ray, iPhones, iPads, wireless cameras, and other wireless devices.
