Ben On WYPR Talking About Computer Repair Options

We were once again on NPR affiliate stations WYPR and WYPF for Mario’s Digital Cafe, discussing computer repair options. Some people are going to take us to task for recommending Zone Alarm, but it is a pretty good option, when the virus scanner is turned on, especially for a beginning to intermediate user.

Really though, people should use a suite of firewall, anti-viral, and anti-spyware solutions. We recently added NOD32 to our arsenal, supplanting ZoneAlarm’s anti-viral.

Mainly, though, we talk about computer repair, and how often times big box retailers outsource to local tech places, so why not cut out the middleman? — BEN POPKEN
