A-Tec offers reasonably-priced solutions to a multitude of computing and technology issues. I have a creative can-do attitude but at the same time, I can also see the last domino fall and will recognize early on when a repair may involve more money than the issue is worth.

My diagnosis is free (less travel) and I realize that this policy does not always generate immediate business, but my strong business ethic is to honestly advise potential customers based on what I would do if it were my issue. Sometimes it's better to cut your losses and NOT repair a computer. I will give you some possible repair options and then advise you on what I would do.

Malware Removal

You have found one of central Kentucky's experts on malware removal. I've removed more than enough of today's modern malware to know how it operates, how to detect it, how to safely remove the associated files/registry entries and how to reverse the varied damages it causes.

  • I would recommend this business
  • helpful, smart, nice, funny, cute

I got this virus that took over my laptop and it would not even show my desktop. Steve was recommended to me through a business acquaintance who said he is truly the best. I am now a believer.

From Our Website

Areas of service include Nicholasville, Lexington, Versailles, Richmond, Georgetown, Danville, Lancaster and nearby Kentucky communities. MIcrosoft has announced that "Extended Support" of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 ends on Jan 14, 2020. This means that Microsoft will no longer issue security updates as they do currently. Many users - both residential and commercial are still using Windows 7 - after all, it was their most popular operating system. Will our systems need to be upgraded to Windows 10?

Computer viruses are so named because they operate similarly to the viruses that invade our own bodies. A computer virus is caught by exposure and then replicates itself. It spreads internally within the system, spreads to other computers, and it even mutates. Viruses are usually created with the goals of random malicious damage and also maybe to give its creator some satisfaction and notoriety among his peers. Most viruses are written to spread automatically and take on lives of their own. But malware as discussed here refers to programs that were written to cause specific changes to a computer's software and settings.

Full time service availability - I am always on-call. I am usually available on short notice anytime during the weekdays, evenings, most weekends and even most holidays. Your emergency is my emergency. My service area is the Jessamine, Fayette, Woodford, Madison, Scott, and Boyle county region in Kentucky but I can travel farther within reason. Out-of-area house-call/pickup rates for areas not shown below are based on mileage and I'll tell you the charge beforehand.
