Remote Tech Support $63
Secure wireless: $86
It is not uncommon to see wireless networks that are unsecured because someone did it themselves without calling a professional. Unsecured wireless networks can result in someone else using your wireless connection to commit a computer crime (e.g. downloading of illegal music, movies, or pornography, sending out spam, viruses, or threatening emails, hacking, etc.).
Shortly after the crime is reported, the authorities will follow the crime trail to your door. In the course of their investigation, the authorities may confiscate all of your computing equipment. Meanwhile, the real perpetuator is long gone.
Protect yourself, your business and your family from such a horrible scenario - call Thoughteater to set up your wireless network. Thoughteater can set up your wireless network securely for only $90!*
Virus, trojan, worm, adware, and spyware
GUARANTEED§ removal: $150†
Restore performance and functionality to your computer! Since 2002, Thoughteater has maintained a 100% success rate of completely cleaning systems of unwanted viruses, worms, adware, and spyware. Thoughteater can completely clean the malicious programs from your system for a flat rate of only $150† - no matter how junked up it is!
If Thoughteater is unable to clean your system of viruses or adware, you don't pay!§
In addition to cleaning your dirty computer, Thoughteater can sometimes determine how the infestation began, and what preventive measures you should take to avoid future reoccurrences.
Thoughteater takes great care to preserve your data and settings throughout the cleaning process. Unlike our competitors, Thoughteater will not resort to a reinstallation of your operating system (Windows) unless you request it.
Data recovery GUARANTEED‡: $235
Thoughteater has an exceptionally good success rate of recovering data from damaged hard drives, and can do so for only $235! Thoughteater can recover your lost photos, emails, documents, music, accounting, and other data - even if other techies have told you they can't!
Thoughteater's data recovery services include putting the recovered data on CD or DVD for archival purposes, for you to store in a safe location. If Thoughteater is unable to recover your data, there is no charge to you for their time.
Permanent Drive erase / data deletion ("Drive scrubbing")†: $79
Thoughteater can permanently and securely delete all data from your hard drive, meeting U.S. Department of Defense ("DoD") and HIPAA standards. When getting rid of old computers, laptops, and even printers, copiers, and scanners, it is imperitive that your data be permanently removed from the drive, to protect you or your business from data and identity theft. DON'T do it yourself, because simply deleting the files and emptying the recycle bin WILL NOT DO, as the deleted data will remain on the drive and can be easily recovered by most techies and hackers! But our thorough drive-scrubbing process ensures that all data is truly removed from the drive, and every sector of the drive is filled with random, useless data. Additionally, we render the drive inoperable and useless. Don't take chances with your sensitive, private data - have ThoughtEater scrub it for you!
Smooth Operating System (Windows) re-installation: $235
Sometimes the only or most practical resolution to many problems is to re-install the operating system (Windows). Or you may need to upgrade your system to a newer version of Windows. Thoughteater can provide this service to you for a flat-rate of only $235!
This price includes seamlessly migrating your data, like email, documents, favorites, music, photos, etc., to the new installation. Also included is hardware driver installation. This price does not include re-installation of any server operating systems. This price is for service only - it does not include the cost of the Windows operating system software or license. With a ThoughtEater clean installation of Windows, you will not have all the resource-hogging shovelware that most PC manufacturers load on to new computers.
Thoughteater can typically provide this service in just a few business days.
Internet domains, web and email
Is your business still using AOL email addresses? Improve the professional appearance of your company by getting a domain name (e.g. mycompany.com) and email addresses at that domain (e.g. email@example.com). This can usually be accomplished for under $999, including domain name, basic web site, 50 500 MB email addresses, email configuration and a year's worth of web hosting (basic web site scenario).
* Price does not include equipment and is good only for the configuration and set up of one router and up to 3 wireless computers.
† Price good only if Thoughteater is able to work on your system in their offices. Please allow 2-5 business days to ensure proper cleaning of system. Service provided at your location to scrub a drive or to clean a system of malicious programs is subject to the regular hourly rate.
§ If Thoughteater cleans your system and within 3 calendar days re-infestation is still evident on the cleaned system, Thoughteater will gladly refund your $146 service charge to you. However, before a refund is processed Thoughteater requires that you allow them a second opportunity to identify and remove the remaining virus or adware, and to determine if the re-infestation occurred before or after the Thoughteater cleaning process was completed. If it is determined that the re-infestation occurred after Thoughteater cleaned your system, this guarantee is invalid. This guarantee applies only to systems cleaned at ThoughtEater's shop and specifically excludes any system cleaned on-site at your office or home. This guarantee requires that Thoughteater have, in its repair shop, your infected computer for servicing for a period of at least two business days. This guarantee does not apply to future computer infestations. Thoughteater does not guarantee that your computer will never be infested again, but will provide you with recommendations to help minimize your exposure to future occurrences. No company can fully guarantee that your computer will never be infested again.
‡ If Thoughteater is unable to recover your data, then there is no charge to you for their time trying. The $216 pricing is for desktop computers, laptops, and workstations only. Price does not include data recovery from servers. The $216 data recovery rate and guarantee applies only to systems processed at ThoughtEater's shop and specifically excludes any system processed on-site at your office or home. If the total size of the recovered data is more than 5 Gigabytes (approx. 5,000 Megabytes), additional charges may apply. Prior to any additional charges being applied, you will be notified.
ThoughtEater is able to keep its rates low by operating out of small offices. This makes storage area limited. Systems left at the ThoughtEater shop or offices beyond two weeks after being notified they are ready for pick-up will incur a daily storage fee of $5. Any system left unclaimed beyond thirty days after being notified they are ready for pick-up will be destroyed or sold by ThoughtEater.
