allan-roe“Paul knows his stuff. He removed over 1500 viruses from my daughter’s laptop. I was on the verge of throwing the thing away, so bad were the internet browser ads and malware. This saved me around $1000. Not to mention the relief you feel when you don’t have to deal with frustrating IT error messages while you try to fix something for your daughter as she hovers at your shoulder.

Oh and while we were waiting for the software to fix the laptop, Paul also connected our new flat screen TV to the internet. Now my daughter was very happy about that. My wife loves catch up TV on big screen viewing. But I digress.

Paul is knowledgeable and willing to experiment and research where the latest tricks of the IT trade have shifted the game. He doesn’t pretend to know all of it and waste your time. When things change he tells you what he is going to do about it, does his research and goes ahead and does it.

What Paul has saved me in dollars has been a great return on his fee. What Paul has done for my family’s entertainment is cream on the cake.”

Thanks Paul
