Confidence Inspiring

I'm not a tech expert but I'm always trying to gain more confidence using and troubleshooting my computer. He finds and tests various freeware programs, websites, and solutions and then tells you in plain English how to make your "computer life" something to enjoy and not fear so much. If you go through the archived podcasts you will find numerous tips you will want to use.

When I recently purchased a new computer, I treated myself to the luxury of having Scott remotely set it up for me in a professional way, and what a luxury it was! It was as if he was sitting in the room with me in NJ. All files got transferred, nightly backup is assured, and I am not overloaded with ads and bloatware. Enjoy his podcasts!

Perfect podcast

When I am working as a new IT support tech, I listen to this podcast and learn a lot. One of the amazing things was how to read articles in Chrome with no clutter.
Thanks for taking the time and sharing your experience.
