Dork’s Computer Repair In Heath, Ohio.

I noticed that there is a new computer repair shop in Heath, Ohio called Dork Force. The name had me laughing so hard I had to take a picture. I know nothing about Dork Force, other than the name is funny.

Dork Force Computer Repair in Heath, Ohio

Dorks?

Maybe I just haven’t kept up with current slang, but a Dork has never meant anything complimentary. Geeks, that’s different, that implies that the person is only smart about technological aspects of life, but lacks in other areas, Dork implies lack of knowledge in anything. Hopefully the name means nothing here.

If they’re good, the area needs these guys. There are many broke computers that need repaired. I don’t repair computers and viruses because there’s no money it. Folks think it should be done for free in the first place, then you end up spending many hours correcting their problems and educating them. By the time you add up the bill for the time, they could have just bought a new computer.

When your suggestions are ignored, the customer comes back to you and explains that your service is no good because they have the same problem again. You find out that they’ve done the same things that you told them not to do. They’ve somehow disabled everything you set up to protect them. In the process, they’ve told everyone they know that you don’t know what you’re doing and you’ve ripped them off.

In short, there’s better ways to make a living with computers. If Dork Force has figured out a way to fix your computer for less than buying a new one and clear a profit, not to mention pay the rent in the strip mall, my hat is off to them and I wish them the best.

I can tell everyone to Be Careful Of All Computer Repair Shops!. You can easily be ripped off with this type of business. Like I said, I don’t know anything about Dork Force, but I know plenty about computer repair shops in general.

  • Are they installing the free Microsoft Security Essentials program?
  • If the repair is within $100 of a new computer with high performance numbers, get the new computer. They should be suggesting this to you.

For those who wish to keep their computer out of the shop, install Iolo(turn off the anti-virus protection) and Microsoft Security Essentials(turn on the anti-virus protection) and you’re about as secure as you can get.
