Welcome!  I'm Glad You're Here!

Jim is Back!  

Free computer clinics will resume on July 20th.
Windows 10 classes will resume in the Fall.

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!

Two Tips From the Sun City Computer Guy

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.
