From Our Website

PC Rescue provides computer help and support to home users and small businesses in Tameside and the surrounding areas. We aim to provide repairs and solutions quickly and affordably and, where appropriate, to explain how you can avoid the problem happening again. We will arrange for an engineer to visit you, so you don't have to disconnect your equipment and transport it anywhere. We will also agree a convenient time and where necessary, this can be in the evening or at the weekend. If for any reason we can't get to you within 15 minutes of the agreed time, we will call you to let you know and to reschedule the appointment if required.


Internet users are, of course, familiar with facilities like e-mail and the World Wide Web. However, many users, and especially small business, fail to make the most of the Internet, for example to present themselves professionally and to ensure that customers or aquaintances can find them easily. For example, if your business uses a hotmail, gmail or yahoo email address, or if you don't have at least a basic website, you don't appear to be professional. You can also use sites like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedInto manage your professional image orthat of your business.


Malware is the general term for viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, scareware and other unwanted or malicious software. Most malware makes at least some attempt to prevent you shutting it down or removing it. For example, malware can use multiple components that monitor each other so if you get rid of one part, the other parts can put it backagain. It may also change your system configuration settings so that your computer will not work properly even if you do succeed in removing the infection. Our experienced engineers can deal with these issues and completely clean your system, usually within a couple of hours.


Spyware does what the name suggests - it spys on your activities. The information is sent back to a control server on the Internet, where the criminals can collect it. The aim may be simply to monitor the types of websites you visit so that the types of advertising you see can be tailored to your interests. We can clean up these infections, usually on-site.


If your laptop/notenookis simply not working properly, our engineers can diagnose the problem and repair it for you. Software faults can usually be rectified quickly in a single visit. Where there is a problem with the computer machinery (the hardware), we may need to diagnose it in our workshop or order replacement parts specifically for your model. We can usually get it back to you within a few days.


If your photographs, music, emails, or other files are important to you, you will want to make sure you have a reliable backup copy. This is especially important for businesses. PC Rescue can automate the process to make it easy for you. You can find more details on our Backup page or you can contact us.


PC Rescue can help with upgrades to RAM, CPUs, hard drives and other components and advise on their suitability. We also supply, install and configure them for you. Please let us know your requirements.


Our experience has shown that backing up to CD or DVD is inconvenient as well as slow and often unreliable - we have seen writable CDs fade and become unreadable in as little as a year. USB memory sticks are used by some people but they have limited capacity and also have limits to the number of times they can be written before they become corrupt or stop working. The best solution we have found for speed and reliability and low cost is to use one or more USB-attached hard drives. We can create a simple backup system where you simply plug in the hard drive and double-click an icon to run the backup.
