Many fake virus pages exist to make you believe your computer has a virus. In reality, they are only trying to scare you into calling their phone number.

Software & Operating System Upgrades
Software upgrades are another area in which Austin Computer can be of great service. Many computers are still running very old copies of Windows 98 or Windows XP. While these operating systems were good in their day, Mircosoft has quit supporting them and therefore, they are no longer suitable for today’s Internet environment as they don’t have the security of Windows 7 or Windows 10.
As a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, we can acquire those older systems, upgrade them to be able to run the most current version of Windows.
If it’s a Macintosh computer you’re using, no problem. Austin Computer can upgrade your Mac OS X to the latest version. We can also upgrade your memory and hard disk space. Or we usually have a MacBook Pro or two in stock for a quick sale.
Whatever you decide, you can count on Austin Computer for your Software and Anti-Virus needs.
