Client Feedback

I had a major problem with my PC. A virus had caused the system to lock and it had also blocked off the obvious option of F8 and then command prompt to reset the system to a date prior to the virus intrusion.

I took the machine to YCS Computers at 11 o clock. By 4.30, they had resolved the situation and my machine was up and running with my data saved. I need the machine as I am self employed and I am very grateful for their first class assistance.
