Computer Setup


Problems with your laptop, desktop or all-­in-­one computer? Apple, Lenovo, HP, Dell, Acer, Asus – no matter the brand, we can help!

We’ve helped over 200,000 Australians with their technology so there’s almost nothing that your local Geek hasn’t dealt with before.

Viruses & spyware

Viruses and spyware can make your computer feel slow and clunky and cause pop­up error messages. They also pose a serious threat to your computer’s security and to your personal privacy.

To get your computer running properly again, your Geek will remove all of the viruses and spyware using specialist tools, repair any issues caused by them and update your internet security and antivirus software so that you don’t get more down the road!

Computer Tune­up

Over time computers accumulate more and more stuff and need a good clean up to run properly. Your local Geek can tune­up your computer and have it running like it did on the first day you used it!

Here’s what they’ll do:

  • Optimise startup and shutdown so that when you turn your computer on or off it’s super quick to do what you want it to
  • Install the latest software updates to make sure you haven’t missed out on anything critical!
  • Remove any unwanted programs that you’ve accidentally installed which will really help improve the speed of your machine.
