Sluggish, 2011 iMac desktop & mail refusing to load! Adam saved her!

“Computer Cures was recommended to me by a friend who had a great experience with them saving his iMac. Adam diagnosed my issue within a few minutes over the phone: older software & very ancient hard drive – plus a few other issues.

I didn’t want a new iMac – I’d rather work with what I have given it is a good machine. Adam came by the same day, picked up my iMac, took it back to the office for a hard drive upgrade overnight.

Brought it back & voila. Faster than ever & smooth as…..no more ‘spinning wheel from hell’. He also spent some time working around an issue on Pages – very much appreciated. Recommended!”
