I was at a wedding today, when a problem arose. The restaurant's router wouldn't access the internet. When you went to web site, the browser screen just said, " Server not found". So using my smartphone, I accessed the router via its IP address. I checked the router configuration, then I restarted the router by clicking on the restart command.

After the router restarted, I restarted my smartphone, connected to the router WiFi again and tried to access the internet. Voila, it worked. All the guests at my table were happy to hear the news that the WiFi link now worked.

Sometimes. a simple restart cures what is troubling you.

That should increase business. Hope you had plenty of business cards to
pass out.

Fantastic computer consultant. Able to diagnose a problem and quickly determine an effective solution. Recently, Ed was able to remove a virus from my computer and save all of my data. He has removed all of the aggravation that I used to have in trying to deal with the technology aspects of my life. He always explains what the problem is in clear, concise terms and typically presents a number of solutions to select from.

Ransomware is the generic term for a malicious virus that will typically render your computer inoperable and ask you to pay a fee or ransom to regain control. These threats can usually be removed without paying up, by  using a decent anti-virus program or malware removal program.

CryptoLocker is different. Your computer and software keep on working, but your personal files, such as documents, spreadsheets and images, are encrypted.

Ed Kivell has been a fail-safe IT resource to my business for several years addressing PCs, MACs and my network. Ed has addressed a wide variety of issues from network drive back-ups, to configuring new laptops for the network, to upgrading memory and graphics cards, to security breaches and software application bugs. He responds quickly and reliably and can work remotely or come to the office for major catastrophes. He is amazingly knowledgeable about the latest in cyber-security, all things Windows and MSOffice, and MAC OS. Most importantly, once the issue seems solved, Ed always checks back to make sure things are running smoothly. Great, trusted resource, always over-delivers value in every situation.

Client review from Thumbtack.com, the "Hire-A-Pro" web site -

"We called Ed in a panic because we had a virus in the computer. he came immediately. He resolved all of the problems, explained each step clearly in non tech language, gave recommendations to improve the computers performance. professional, informative, completed all the tasks within the initial quote on budget. We would give the highest recommendation."

I would highly recommend Edward Kivell for your IT/PC needs. He has upgraded my son’s Dell laptop and successfully repaired and re-imaged my niece’s Mac laptop. Both with excellent results. Ed provides timely communication updates, pricing, and provides you with the information needed to make decisions about your computer.

Client with a 24" iMac had his hard drive crash. Had to remove remove the glass screen, bezel and LCD screen to gain access to the hard drive. Removed the hard drive, connected it to a PC, used PC recovery tools to recover all files. Net Result = Total recovery of all data files despite bad sectors on hard drive and happy client.

My Family and I have been using Jon Rosenblitt for years. We have found his dental care and patient interaction to be outstanding. He thoroughly briefs the patient on the procedure and responds to any questions. The rest of the staff is always friendly and as a result, a typical appointment is transformed into a stress-free experience. I fully recommend Dr. Rosenblitt's expertise for your family's dental care.

Excellent group for improving one's business. Provides referrals via "word of mouth" advertising. Offers each member an opportunity to profile their unique skills and to expand their customer base.

Just had a take out delivery from this restaurant. The food was over-cooked and bland. Taste was non-existent. I've had better oriental food from a fast food Chinese restaurant.

Arrogant. Thinks that he has all the answers. Waited over a week to get a simple 2 page form completed. Finally, had to go to another doctor when he left for an out of town convention without completing the form.

Prompt, efficient and fairly priced. What more could a consumer ask for? The work was neat and expertly done.

Food was fresh but had no flavor. Rather than plates, you ate off a tin tray. Salsa was good, but difficult to enjoy a full dinner at only the salsa bar.
