Help & Advice - The Computer Man

Initial Help & Advice


Welcome to our help pages, if you have a problem, you will often find the necessary assistance here.  If you need our help, we are only a telephone call away and have advanced support systems to log on to your machine, fix the problem and then log off again.... this is known as remote online support.


A wording of Warning !!  Unfortunately many scams eminate from the internet, in particular call centres that purport to be Microsoft Partners and offering to fix problems with your machine.  Don't fall prey to these dubious operations, if you cannot validate exactly who somebody is an where they are from, under no circumstances give them any information or allow them to access your machine. If you do become a victim get help quickly and please do report it via our website.



We have our own software available on disk and via download so we can logon to your machine, troubleshoot and resolve issue.


Just call us on 01489 785646 and we can arrange to support you remotely. If you have had your laptop or PC serviced at our local workshop, you will already have our Computer Support module installed.
