After learning these skills, you will wonder why you ever paid so much for getting your computer repaired. The methods you will learn are so simple to understand that you can follow along with the lectures and fix your computer in real-time.

The skills you will learn are commonly used by computer repair technicians. Since everything today revolves around technology, technicians charge a ridiculous amount to fix our computers. I will teach you the skills they themselves use and much more.

Content and Overview

Created for beginners, this course will empower you to solve the 5 most common computer repair problems including: Computer is running slow, viruses and malware, Internet isn't working, computer is freezing, and annoying pop-up/banner ads.

After learning to solve these various problems, I get into the 'good stuff'. I will unveil the dirty secrets of the computer repair industry – the ones they want to charge you for! You will learn to optimize your computer to get it running at full speed, boost your web browser for uninterrupted browsing, and free up disk space using exclusive tools featured only in this course.

With these basics mastered, you will learn to fix other people's computers as well – no matter how specific the problem.
