I think Micro Center is cheaper, so maybe compare your prices with them?
I would say that was the case. They never even removed it at the store. When we booted it up at home, it still had the same issues. They sold us the trend micro anti-virus at least to get rid of it ourselves. I am still pissed to this very day we wasted 200 dollars on no-good geek squad services.

The one thing I can advise you when starting your own series of work, is to have experience and some type of proof of such. If you aren't articulate, or don't have a degree/certification(s).. it is more difficult for some people to take you seriously.

You will quickly notice that most people are very on edge about their computer.. and do not want to lose anything. Ensure that you have all of the proper experience necessary before ever touching a client's system.

If your unsure of something.. be willing to admit it.. and be willing to do the research.

This was 3 years ago. I seriously new nothing about the insides of computers then. And I might have been able to get a Athlon 64X2 6000+ and 2 gigs of RAM. A significant upgrade from the sempron and 512mb of RAM it had before.
But I didn't know what those were at the time either and would have been scared to death to install them. Man I was a wimp at computers!

They don't even run AVG, they run Norton. lol

I like their diagnostic repair and upgrade for $240 in store. No thanks, I'll go buy a new computer.

I'm trying to start my own computer business also. I will be focusing on setting up networks and business related software for small business.

Can somebody tell me what's my target demographic? In the other words, the characteristic of my customers. I'm a noob when it comes to business.
