Why will it cost more to fix my Windows 8 operating System then my old Windows 7 System.

You will not actually be charged more as our labour rate is flat across all operating system work, however there will need to be more time spent on the machine as Windows 8 is New and there are many bugs and compatibility issues to be discovered.

Digital certificates (also called Secure Server IDs) are like virtual electronic fingerprints. Each one is unique and can be used to positively identify the person or object (e.g. a company's Internet server), who owns the certificate by the information contained within it. That information can be trusted, because it is digitally 'signed' by a trusted Certification Authority who check the authenticity of the information to be included in the certificate before they issue it. Digital Certificates provide the proof of identity and deliver critical elements of security which are vital to establish the trust needed to conduct safe communications and transactions with customers, suppliers, partners and employees.

Why will my modem not initialise ?

This error can be caused by simple conditions, such as the modem not being plugged in properly or not being turned on. A common error is that another program is using the modem.

It is also possible that your modem is not functioning at all and it needs to be replaced.
