Welcome!  I'm Glad You're Here!

Free Computer Clinic every Thurs 8am - 12 noon

No Clinics from Jan 31st until March 7th!
Except, there will be a clinic on Feb 14th

I'm at the Community Center every Thursday from 8 am -12 noon.  Come with your computer questions or sick computers.  Be sure to bring your power cord for your laptop or desktop tower.  I have a keyboard, mouse, and monitor for you to use.  Please come early if you have a computer virus.  It will take 2-3 hours to remove it.

I am a volunteer providing free computer help to the residents of Sun City Aliante.  At my Free Computer Clinic, I can help with: 1) fixing your computer, 2) removing viruses and spyware, 3) instruction and tips for Windows and most programs, and 4) answering computer questions, or giving computer advice.  Bring your broken, virus ridden, computer and questions.  I will not only fix it, but teach you how to avoid problems!

Windows 10 Stuff

Do you miss the old Windows 7 games? 
     You can download them HERE.  They are also available on the web at https://winaero.com/request.php?1836

CLICK HERE for a lot more information and tips on Windows 10.

Be Forewarned!

No one from Microsoft will ever call you or pop up a screen on your computer telling you your computer has a problem and offering to help you fix it.  It is a scam.  Restart your computer or hang up immediately.  Don't tell them anything. 

Lately, our residents have been getting a lot of computer viruses through e-mails from: FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL, OnTrak, Walmart, and many others about a failed attempted package delivery.  These e-mails are fake.  These package delivery services will never contact you by e-mail.  Delete these e-mails without opening them.
