Established in February 1997 computercare has been serving Yorkshire and beyond for 20 years. During this time we have moved between premises in Selby initially on New Street, Gowthorpe and finally Bawtry Road. Having focussed on customer needs and the type of business we run we later decided to become mobile. We offer onsite and collection and return services so we are able to get to your home or business quickly. Ideal for those with mobility problems.

What area do we cover?

Due to the nature of technology, we don’t have any specific borders however the vast majority of our work is carried out in North Yorkshire and the East Riding. computer care provides remote control services whereby we will endeavour to solve your problems via a remote connection. So long as your internet connection is still working our remote services can save you money on callout fees and also provide a much quicker solution.

Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac or Linux

We are often asked if Apple is more stable than a PC with Microsoft Windows. Well, there is a little truth in this, however, there are a few factors to bear in mind. Windows systems allow far more software applications to run on their computers. While this is an advantage it also makes the system more prone to a crash due to some 3rd party software. Furthermore are your workforce trained or able to use Apple? Will you need to purchase additional equipment and software due to compatibility issues? So our view is simply whatever best fits the customer needs will be the best choice. Occasionally you may hear about Linux based computer systems. They can certainly be a cheaper option as most software is “open source” therefore free to use. On the downside, you may again be hit with inter-compatability issues. For hobbyists Linux can be fun and contributing to software development can be rewarding. Our opinion? If run as a server it can be much cheaper to install and maintain versus Microsoft Windows Server. Linux workstations can be used in a commercial enviroment but the downside may be training your staff at an added cost.

Virus – Malware – Spyware – Keyloggers

Contrary to belief it is not only Microsoft PC’s which are prone to infection. As we speak it is more likely that a PC will be infected but this is not exclusive to a PC. Today we are having to remove viruses and malware from Apple Mac’s, IPAD’s, Kindle and even smartphones.

We spent around 13 years based in Selby, North Yorkshire including shops on both Gowthorpe and New Street however due to the nature of our business, sales are only a small part of a much wider offering. Since 2010 we @computercare went mobile offering customers onsite or collection and return services. This has mainly benefited the home user with no additional costs. Commercial customers continue to receive individual support without the worry of dealing with various techies. If possible we may charge fixed fees for home computer systems but should there be a need for replacement parts or software this will be advised prior to any further costs. Some companies may suggest they are with you “every step of the way” “an interesting suggestion!” Rest assured computercare will answer your queries without the sales spiel.
