Have you ever lost a crucial file? Has your hard drive ever “died” to the point where you couldn’t access any of the data? Have you known friends/family who have had their laptops stolen? In each of these cases, a good backup would have eased the pain of lost data. We at In The Moment Computing know what it takes to backup your data in a way that suits your needs whether via an online backup, backup to CD and DVD, backup to internal/external hard drives, backup to tapes, or backup to your network computer. Having an easy-to-maintain back up system in place will give you the feeling of security that comes when you know your data is secure.

No matter how much love and affection you lavish on your computer, things can and do go wrong. What can you do? You can fix it yourself, but that takes considerable skill and knowledge. You can box up your system and send it back to the manufacturer or return it to the store where you purchased it, but that is time consuming and inconvenient. In the end you may be without your system for a week or more. Thankfully, In the Moment Computing can resolve the vast majority of repairs onsite, at a time that suits you, and at reasonable cost. You have the choice of either replacing the faulty part with a unit that you have purchased yourself, or, alternatively, In the Moment Computing can do the shopping for you. Repairs are not limited to just hardware either. Software can be just as tough to fix and equally as frustrating. Fortunately In the Moment Computing can solve most software problems whether you have a Windows or Macintosh system. If you would like further information on a repair for your computer, please contact us, or call 408.732.8500 to arrange for a FREE phone consultation.
While we are onsite, we can do a thorough analysis of your current system to let you know which software programs need updating based on our knowledge and experience gained over 10 years in the computer field. We also carry a set of FREE utilities from which you can choose programs to enhance your computing experience.
Another important element of your security system is up-to-date antivirus software than can scan your system regularly to remove viruses before they impact your machine. We can test your anti-virus software, making sure it’s current and has been run recently.
If you are having problems with your system and you fear you have a virus – do not install an anti-virus product. Call us immediately and we’ll take steps to remedy the situation before your data is lost. One way to minimize data loss is to set up a back up system.

There was a time when networks were reserved for large companies with huge IT budgets and support departments to match. Not any more. Installing a home or small business network is not as expensive as you may think, and offers several distinct advantages:
- Easy file sharing between computers
- Cable/DSL internet connection sharing
- Printer sharing
If you network your machines you must have anti-virus software and a personal firewall installed. If you don’t already have this protection, we are happy to supply and install it for you. See Security and Firewalls for details.
