Who is Tech Aid, LLC

Tech Aid, LLC was founded on the belief that computer service should be available for everyone, not just "Big Business". In these days, computers have become common-place, but with the economy being the way it is, getting reliable computer service can be expensive. That's where Tech Aid fits in.

We hire only seasoned technicians, with the skills to get the job done right the first time. If you feel that your problem is not solved on our first visit, we will come back out and solve your problem at no additional charge*. That is the Tech Aid Quality Service Guarantee.


*The Tech Aid Quality Service Guarantee:

In the event that Tech Aid is called out to repair a problem which we were already called out to repair, you will not be charged for the labor to repair the problem under the following conditions:

  • The problem must have existed at the time the technician left the premises.
  • The technician must have attempted to repair the problem prior to leaving the premises.
  • Issues not related to repairs by Tech Aid are not covered by the Guarantee.
  • No modification of the repair must have been done by the customer (i.e. re-infection by a virus).


Thinking about a new computer?

If you are looking into a purchasing a new computer, consider one with a 64 bit operating system. The new 64 bit operating systems allow your system to access more memory than a 32 bit system and will be more compatible with newly designed software.

Upgrading an existing system to 64 bit rarely works as hardware is usually designed for the operating system they expect to be on the system. Therefore if purchasing a new system, go with a 64 bit system, it will be ready for the future.


Spyware and Adware and Rogues! Oh my!

A strange window popping up to tell you that your system is infected with viruses is true, but not in the way that you would think. These pop-up windows are the actual infection themselves and are known as rogue software. They are trying to get you to divulge your personal or corporate financial information for their alterior uses.

Tech Aid's techinicians are extremely skilled at removing these nasty viruses and will have your system clean and secure in one visit.


A little bit of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

If you are not running anti-virus software, you are asking to be infected by a virus.

Call Tech Aid Today, and we can install Anti-Virus software to keep you protected.


Re-writeable DVD's are great for back-up of important data since each DVD can hold appoximately 4.7 GB of data.

By alternating between two or more DVD-RW's, you can keep a safe backup while erasing and writing to a different disk.


Scanners can be a great tool to keep track of your receipts.

By scanning important receipts, you can store them all in a file and have them all at the ready when tax time comes around, or you need to provide them for an expense report.


Defragging is your friend!

If your computer is slowing down, before you call a service company(except us of course), do a defragmentation of your hard drive.

When a hard drive gets heavily fragmented, it slows down access to the files stored there.

Disk Defragmenter can be found from (Start) > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter
