I have taken many work PC’s and laptops to Tan and the Alpha team for many years now. Virus issues, hard drives, cracked screens, circuit boards… they do it all. They always take great care of us and get us back up and running. Highly recommended!
We take pride in building high performance gaming computers, components are chosen based on performance, reliability, quality and appearance. The case in this particular system is a Corsair Carbide R500 mid-tower, it’s roomy to allow plenty of ventilation, 3 120mm super quiet fans with speed control, 1 300mm fan on the side cover. The front LED lights can be turned off or left on.
For data storage, we picked a Samsung EVO Pro SSD and a 2TB WD Caviar Black hard drive and a LG Bluray/DVD burner.
Many of our customers told us they leave the side panel of the case off to show off how “awesome” the machine looks, both outside and inside. We routed the wires neatly hiding them where possible yielding a pleasing look and allow optimum airflow to cool down the monster video card and main board.
If you are looking for a custom built gaming computer, head right over to Alfa Computer or give us a call, you’ll be glad you did.
Just in the past month, a new virus named CRYPTOLOCKER has surfaced making security experts scrambling for solutions. What does it do (Payload): Cryptolocker virus encrypts most data files on your computer including shared locations that you connect to i.e. network folders, external drives. Once encrypted, your data can not be opened in applications, you will either get an error message indicating that the files are corrupted or you will receive a message from the virus creator demanding that you send $100 or $300 cash card in order for the files to be decrypted.
How does it get into your computer: So far, the virus is transmitted using low tech methods, you might receive an email with subject “USPS Tracking”, “Dunn & Bradstreet rating” or similar topics, a small Zip or Rar file is attached to the email which contain the virus.
Solutions: We are able to remove the virus efficiently but as this article is written, there is no way to decrypt the files without the encryption key which is kept on the virus maker’s server. Therefore, restoring from a recent backup is recommended (You DID backup your data, right?). If you don’t have a good backup, data recovery is the next solution.
If you are infected with virus, please call us for consultation before making any drastic changes to your computer or server, this will help with data recovery should you need it.
