Recenly forced downloaded updates and interrupted downloads of these updates has caused many computers to stop booting and require advanced system repairs. The repairs of these errors is often pretty routine, but occaisionally involves some extra effort to find exactly what has gone wrong with the update.

Never has there been more potential for acquiring infection to computer operating systems; on both Mac and Windows computers. I have developed scanning routines that go far beyond what the average user does, to try and protect themselves from such intrusion. It is not always the same and sometimes can take hours or even days of scanning and searching for code and programs hiding on their computers. I have become proficient at scraping all this crud off and repairing the damage left behind by the actions of these Internet criminals. It is a very rare occasion when I find a computer completely free of threats.
One of the most frequent problems with personal computers is the failure of the hard drive storage device or other storage media such as solid state drives (SSD). I often tell my customers that there is no IF about the failures, it is more a matter of when and how much mileage you will get from the hard drive. The recent introduction of SOLID STATE drives, will probably mean we can expect them to last longer than the old style mechanical hard drives.
