Can you get back into my computer after my session is over?  No, not until you run our remote software again and request service. When you click our secure online support software you are   prompted to download a temporary desktop sharing application that allow us to view and interact with your computer.  Once your service is complete and you log off, the temporary application are automatically deleted from your PC.  We can no longer see or access your computer.  Additionally, if you need to take control back while the technician is on your system all you need to do is move your mouse and our control is disabled.

Is it secure?  Yes. When you click our Remote Repair Software your are initiating a 128-bit encrypted connection between your computer and the technician's computer. In this way, you have set up a unique one-to-one session that no one else can view or access during the session. That ensures your security and privacy.  In addition, you are in control the whole time.  Only you can initiate a remote support session and you can end a session by simply closing the support window on your desktop.

  • locate and remove viruses and install and configure anti-virus software

How long does an average support session last?  The average remote support session lasts anywhere from 45-90 minutes.  However, depending on the type of problems you're experiencing, a   session may be shorter or much longer.  In some cases where the computer problems are severe (lots of spyware!), we may recommend a follow up remote session, scheduling an in-home or in-office visit by a Genie certified technician, or shipping the system into our repair facility.

Why is remote computer support better than more traditional support options?             Traditional computer support options have been to wait on hold with a PC or software vendor, take your computer to a repair shop and wait for days for your PC to be repaired or to wait for a technician to visit your home.   Remote computer support allows us to interact directly with your computer so you   don't have to perform often complicated telephone instructions on how to fix your computer yourself.  In this way our technicians can identify and resolve problems faster, which costs you less.   Many problems can be fixed remotely, saving you the time and headache of disconnecting your computer and carrying or shipping it to a repair facility.

Many of us don't have time to figure out what's wrong with a PC or network, and would rather have an experienced technician look at their PC.  Also, with Genie's Remote Help, there's no waiting on hold or the need to call multiple vendors for support.  So, remote computer support is less expensive, easier to use and much more convenient than traditional computer support or repair services.

Is it easy to use?  Very!  By allowing a remote technician to access your computer through the Internet they are able to fix your computer directly.  You can simply sit back and watch.  Or, you can work on something else while the technician is fixing your computer.   Remote computer support is simple, convenient and, best of all, it's hands-free. While speaking with a technician on the phone, he will instruct you to simply click on the "genie remote repair" link, let go of the mouse,  and let us fix your PC!

Do you charge to diagnose my  computer remotely?   No, we will log into your system and diagnose the problem without any charge to you.

Are your technicians qualified to work on   my computer?  At Genie Remote Repair our computer experts are Microsoft Application Trainers, Microsoft Product Specialists, A+/MCP/MCSE Certified Professionals, Network Administrators and HTML Developers, and Programmers. We direct the correct qualifications to the specific task..  Every technician is pre-qualified, has experience in a help desk environment, performs repair and maintenance of computers & notebooks on a daily basis, and completes an extensive training course on excellent service and the virtual interface.

Can you send a technician to my home/office for support?  Yes.  We can send a certified technician to your home or office anywhere in the Tampabay area.  Most service requests can be fulfilled within 24 hours.

Do you support Apple Macintosh?  Yes, we have recently expanded our service offerings to include support for Apple Mac computers.  We support Macs running MacOS 10.4 (Tiger) or MacOS 10.5 (Leopard).

Can you support older computers?  All of our services are available for PCs that have Windows XP and newer operating systems.  If your PC is older than 10 years, or has Windows 98 or Windows 2000, it may be worth considering the purchase of a new computer.  Call us to discuss your options.

Can you provide remote support through a dial-up or wireless connection?  Yes. However, in some cases, customers that have a dial-up, mobile wireless or satellite Internet connection may experience longer online support sessions due to limited connection speeds. In addition, older PCs (over 6 yrs) running Windows 98 or Windows ME are less stable and can be more difficult to support through a slower connection. We recommend you talk with a customer support representative when scheduling an appointment.
