Our operating system wipe and reload service consists of the following:
When you bring in your Apple Computer, PC Computer or laptop to BitWise Computer Repair to have your operating system reinstalled, a technician will physically clean out your computer and test all the hardware. Any data needed to be saved will be backed up and then a clean, proper re-installation of Windows (according to Microsoft specifications) or OS X or Linux will be performed. All latest device drivers will be loaded, all Microsoft/Apple/Linux security updates will be installed and if necessary an anti-virus program will be installed and configured. BitWise recommends Microsoft Security Essentials for effective and free protection. We will then transfer any saved data back onto the computer and configure an email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird if requested.
