My name is Darren Lidgett, proprietor of Lidgett Computer Solutions (LCS for short) and have been offering PC help & support to customers in and around Scunthorpe & Gainsborough for over 10 years. If you are looking for peace of mind and someone you can trust to do a proper and professional job then please get in touch. Most of my business comes via word of mouth or recommendation which I hope endorses the quality service I try to offer.

I can help  both home users and business users alike. I have always believed that your pc/laptop needs to work at the place you need it to work (i.e.in your home, office, etc) and not just in a workshop somewhere, therefore I will always come and visit you. I also appreciate people have busy lives, so can make that visit any time to suit you, whether it be daytimes, evening, weekends or even bank holidays (and theres no extra charge for doing so)

 

Here are some of the things I can help you with :-

 

 

 

 

Keeping You Safe Online

This is becoming a bigger and bigger part of my job  and something I am quite passionate about. A lot of the problems I am asked to fix are security related in some way. The main danger on the net these days is from cyber criminals trying to steal passwords, bank  and credit cards details and other personal information and their methods for obtaining such are getting increasingly more complex and clever. An example is of this is shown below, in this case fake antivirus aka "Scareware"

Broadband & Email

We all use a PC, to browse the net, keep in touch with loved ones etc, and if you are running a business, internet access is even more important Often calling me in can get the problem  sorted quicker and cheaper than ringing your ISP on expensive help-lines.

Virus Removal & Prevention

I come across infected PC's on an almost daily basis.  As the saying goes "Prevention is much better than the cure". I have the tools to be able to remove viruses and more importantly, put measures in place to help keep them at bay so you can browse the internet safely.

Spyware Infection / Slow PC

A PC can be slow for a whole variety of reasons, one common reason being because its infected by Spyware. This can also show itself in the form of annoying popup windows you get continuously appearing during browsing. These can often to lead to privacy issues too so its important they are removed. I can also optimise the Windows registry and your startup so your PC starts faster, runs  faster and is a lot more stable.

Startup Problems

For one reason or another, your PC might fail to start up properly. I have various tools & utilities for such an occasion, to help get your PC up and running again.

 

Wireless Networking

This is becoming more and more popular. Most houses now have multiple PC's laptops and game consoles, all wanting to be on the internet at the same time. Its crucial that your wireless is setup properly and more importantly made secure so only the people you want to attach to it, do so. See the video below to show what can happen if your wireless is compromised

 

 When talking about wireless security, it does not pay to cut corners. Identity theft is the biggest growing crime in the UK and unsecured wireless network connections (or ones that arenít as a secure as they could be) are part of the reason for that. Donít let it happen to you!! Get it done properly.

Data Recovery

Using professional data recovery software I have the ability to recover data from  all types of media including digital camera memory cards, USB memory sticks and even reformatted hard drives where windows has been reinstalled. How much can be recovered depends on individual circumstances, but I have successfully recovered customers data under such circumstances on more occasions than not.

New PC Setup

If you have just bought a new PC and unsure where all the cables go and what goes where, I can take the stress out of it for you. The service includes setup, reconnection the internet, setup of email and installation of printer etc. Also, if you have data on your old PC and need it transferring over to the new one, this can also be done.

Windows Reinstalls

A good thing to do every so often is to reinstall windows from scratch, thus clearing out redundant programs, freeing up disk space and memory, essentially giving your PC a spring clean. It also helps fix/prevent a lot of the problems mentioned already. I can do a professional reinstall of windows for you whilst preserving all your precious data, emails and address book etc.
