    Hi People
    As part of a fundraising effort for care international some colleagues and I will be running a PC clinic in our offices outside of work time on one of the coming weekends. We’ve got the legal bit sorted now we need to build a list of services. Initially I’ll be nicking ideas off of things like the tech guys website. The list is comprehensive enough and I would ask that you look at it before making suggestions.
    We will not be charging for this service but ask that people who use the service make a donation.
    Any help appreciated in terms of suggestions

    Thats a great idea, I wish i'd thought of that!

    Well I suppose if your going to "borrow" ideas froim the techguys, they will have a list of all the jobs you can do in a resonably short space of time to a computer.

    What about offering to install openoffice, openproj and the like, that could add value to your work and maybe advertise it as a MS office compatible office suite.

    apart from that I suppose the usual virus scan, spyware removal, cleaning out the startup folder and msconfig stuff.

    What about getting a few cans of air duster and foam clean and offering a physical computer clean, maybe get some wd40 and silence squeeky fans (used to do that alot in the past).

    Um.. i'll go and make some tea and have a think!

    ok with nice hot cuppa firmly in hand, what about scheduling disk defrag for them and doing a chkdsk /F /X so it will check the disks for them on next reboot.

    Driver/new component installs?

    showing them how to lock down their "personal" folder :tune

    Of course you do realise that as soon as you lay a finger on the computers you will be expected to provide free tech support for the rest of its life dont you!

    You could provide some info on how to spot a fake email or check a connection uses https before entering credit card details, online safety sort of stuff that we take for granted.

    Recommend a small portable air compressor instead. Much easier on the environment as there are no empty cans to dispose of afterward.
