My name is Wayne Setzer , and I am the
founder and owner of My-PCConsultant. In 2005 I started My-PCConsultant to help
my Church members and Neighborhood neighbors, many who are elder, with their PC
needs. I retired from UNISYS (Burroughs) and McKesson Corporation in 2008 with over
50+ years experience working on computers, starting
with military computers (using tubes) in 1959 to medium and large mainframe
computers and present day desktop and laptop pc's. You can check my

As of (1/1/2018) the Windows10 free upgrade is NO longer available. You can
still download the upgrade, but you must have a valid license to install and use
it. Click - - > here

Internet Privacy and Security:
Concerned about you privacy when surfing on the internet, your ISP provider selling
off all the information they collect about your connections. If not you should be.
There is an exception that I have been using when using my laptop and tablet pc
away from my home network at any hotspot wifi connection in a hotel, airport,
coffee shop, etc. and that is to use a web browser with a builtin or addon VPN.
NOTE: Also be sure the Windows Firewall is turned on if away from your home
There are addon extension VPN's for both the Chrome and Firefox browsers.
These addons require you to download the addon and then create an account and login
to use them. I use the addon from HOXX for both of these browsers. At this time as far as I know there
is not a VPN addon for Microsoft EDGE browser. The current OPERA browser has a free built in VPN
and ad blocker. No addon to down load and install but both are turned off by
default but are very easy to enable. Also you do not have to create an account or
login to use. NOTE: All browser addon VPN's are only active when you are using the browser
to connect to any website. If you use a client email program such as Thunderbird or
other to connect to your email without using a browser, these browser VPN's will
NOT be active and give you any protection.
Some questions I get from customers:
One of the main problems I hear from customers is: my
computer is so slow I can't get anything done. Can you help me. About 90% of
the time the answer to this is YES. The other times the PC has just outlived
it's life and will need to be replaced.
A few of the many causes of this problem are: computer
virus, malware (spyware) programs that were installed when another program was
being installed, registry problems, dirt and dust buildup inside the pc causing it
to overheat, not enough memory, plus others . All of these problems I am
able to help you with. I can also help you with the security of your pc.
Another question I hear often is: I want to discard or
give away my old computer but am concern about the data that might still be
on the hard drive. Should I be!YES, even through you
have deleted the files, formatted the disk, or the computer will not boot up
because of problems, the data is still physical on the hard drive and can be
retrieved with generally available software. Before you donate or give away that
pc, I can rewrite the entire drive with a random pattern of data (even if the
computer will not boot up) which will overwrite any previous files and data on the
drive or I can remove and physically destroy the hard drive.
Another area I am often ask about is: my small business
needs a website , can you help me here. Again the answer to this is
YES. Every Business, no mater how small, needs a Web presence. You can
view some websites created by My-PCConsultant - - > Here < - -.
