People often ask which antivirus software works the best. Unfortunately, I've seen just about every antivirus software fail to prevent viruses, even when they have been updated regularly. My advice is to use one of the free programs such as AVG, and be careful before you click on ANY popups that tell you that you are infected. Those popups are usually fake and clicking on them will infect your computer.


Being a small business, I appreciate honesty when I need something fixed. If it's too old and I would be better off buying a new one, I want to know. I figure that the customer would like to know this, too. I will happily tell a customer their computer isn't worth fixing and they should buy a new one, if it's the truth. I don't sell computers and have nothing to gain by telling you that you need a new one. Being unbiased in this area allows me to give an unbiased opinion regarding your computer.

We have been in business for 17 years now, which is longer than anyone in central Iowa. Over the last 17 years, over 300 computer stores have come and gone, and Repair.com is still here.


Google is strange in the way it ranks pages. Some days we are the first result if you search for "Des Moines Comuter Repair" . Other days we drop to #690. Go figure.
