Computer Clinics Suspended for the Summer
Will Resume October 3rd

I will be suspending my free computer clinics for the Summer.  The last free computer clinic will be Thursday, May 16th, from 8am - 12 noon.  There will be NO CLINICS during the summer.  My free Computer Clinics WILL RESUME on Thursday, October 3rd, from 8 am - 12 noon.  During this break, I am glad to offer computer advice and help you solve your computer problems by e-mail at scalcomputerguy @ gmail . com and through this web site.

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!

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.
