If you’re pondering the purchase of a new computer this holiday season, then we have an AWESOME lecture you won’t want to miss!! On December 2nd, CSA’s Owner & President Shelly Osterhout will give a lecture covering the many things you need to take in to account before buying a new computer in Fort Myers. Lets face it, your computer is your most important asset! Depending on your work and lifestyle, each PC should be unique to your purpose. Ask yourself: What are the programs and applications that you actually need? Would the computer you’re going to purchase have the programs installed or would you have to buy them separately? What type of virus protection comes with your computer and will your data be safe? Most Fort Myers retail stores sell new computers pre-loaded with 30-day trials full of bloatware and spyware that continuously annoy you with pop-up messages. We literally depend on our computer to make most important personal and business decisions. Join us to find out which computer is perfect for you and the best gift choice for your loved ones for the holidays! Q & A session at end. RSVP to 239-728-2721 or admin@csa4u.com! Bring a friend and be entered into a drawing to WIN a FREE site survey, analysis, and estimate for your business networking plan and how to upgrade to the cloud, $50 off a virus removal or computer clean up, or a FREE SEO analysis and consultation for your website. Entrance fee is only $5 with a portion of the proceeds donated to ACT (abuse, counseling, and treatment for battered and mistreated women). Date: December 2, 2013 Time: 5:00 p.m.—6:30 p.m. Location: 7181 College Parkway #10 Fort Myers, FL 33907

The next lecture in the Computer Solutions of America Lecture Series has been announced, Should I Fix My Computer Or Get A New One? We will be holding this lecture in our Fort Myers office near the corner of College Parkway and U.S. 41 on September 10th from 4:30 to 6:00 pm.  We will be discussing the hardware and software decisions that you need to make when you are deciding whether or not to get your old computer or laptop repaired.  The lifespan of most computers is 3-5 years.  A lot can change in the world of technology over those years.  Your old computer may not be able to run the new operating systems or other software you may need to run for home or business use. The price of the repair versus putting that money into a new computer will also be discussed.  You may be able to run much more efficiently with a new computer and software which would make the extra cost to upgrade worth it. All these questions and more will be answered during the lecture.  Please let us know on our Facebook Event Page if you are going to attend so we can make sure we have enough room and supplies for everyone. https://www.facebook.com/events/530045460383309/ Thanks, and see you then!

We offer a very wide variety of services here at Computer Solutions of America, but two of our core services have always been computer repair and virus removal for laptop and desktop computers here in Fort Myers. We have been in business for around 15 years in the Southwest Florida area and have built up a very loyal following of repeat customers.  We have performed numerous computer upgrades for our customer base as new Windows Updates and Versions have come out.  One of the most popular current services we are offering is “downgrading” computers from Windows 8 to Windows 7.  Although some of our customers like Windows 8 most are more familiar with the layout and functionality of Windows 7.  It’a almost impossible to find a new computer for sale with Windows 7 on it, but Computer Solutions of America can put it on any computer you want. Virus removal is another service we have been offering to customers.  We have removed the FBI Virus from many computers in the Fort Myers area.  It seems that most of the virus protection programs have caught up with the FBI Virus but you can be sure that the bad guys are out there working on the next virus, and we will be here to stop them.  We have recently started offering a new virus protection software to our customers.  Vipre Antivirus 2013 is now the virus removal software that we are recommending to our customers and what we are installing on new computers that we sell. Our small and medium business network installations have also become very popular this year.  Local Fort Myers area businesses are starting to realize how much more efficiently they can operate their business with a local computer network installed in their office.  Office computer networks make file sharing much easier which makes it much easier when a group of people are working on the same project.  The easier it is to share and work together the more efficient your business will become. If you need any help with your computer, or anything computer related, please give Computer Solutions of America a call at 239-728-2721.

Hard to believe that summer vacation is over and the kids are getting ready to go back to school, or already back to school in some cases. Computers are basically a necessity for today’s students, and many need to take a laptop to some of their classes.  Now is the time to get your computers cleaned up and running at peak performance.  Your home computers probably logged a lot of time on video game sites and other Internet sites while the kids were off from school.  There is no telling what viruses, malware, tracking cookies and other programs your computer could have possibly picked up in a summer’s worth of internet surfing. Bring your laptop or desktop computer into Computer Solutions of America at 7181 College Pkwy, Suite 10 for a free diagnostic of your “Back To School” computer.

Here at Computer Solutions of America in Fort Myers we have had a lot of customers come in asking if we can downgrade their new computers from Windows 8 to Windows 7.   Of course we can! A lot of customers can’t get used to the new Operating System that seems like it belongs more on a tablet than on a desktop or notebook computer.  Some customers are also having problems getting their older software to run on Windows 8.  Our business customers don’t have the time to train all of their employees on how to use Windows 8 and any software changes they may have to make. Another common complaint we are hearing is that people don’t like the fact that the Windows 8 Start Menu is so much different than previous editions. It doesn’t really matter what your reason is.  If you want to downgrade your personal or business computers just give us a call at 239-728-2721 and we will make any changes you want. We also do normal computer cleanups, virus removals and other computer repair services right here in our office.  Computer Solutions of America also performs onsite repairs and service and may even be able to login to your computer over the internet and remotely fix your computer.
