My sites were hacked on July 22nd and Bluehost shut them all down till I could get them cleaned. It couldn't happen at a worse time. I didn't have the time, money or patience to deal with any of it, so I let them sit dead for 6 weeks. I wasn't happy with the company Bluehost recommended to fix them, so I spent that time looking around for other solutions.
That brought me to computer-geek. I spent time looking through everything and must have read nearly 100 testimonials. I was sold, but still didn't feel like dealing with my sites.
When I finally contacted CG, I worked with Rich Agnew to get everything going. Loved working with him. He was patient, explained things well and within minutes of sending him a startup fee he was working on the sites. Within 24 hours everything was back up and running again.
25 years ago I walked away from computer consulting. I know what a chore it can be both fixing things and working with customers to get that done. Might be why I just let things sit for 6 weeks, didn't feel like reliving any of that.
Working with Rich got rid of all the hesitancy I had. If something ever goes wrong again, the only thing that would stop me from calling CG immediately would be cash flow. I'll call them ASAP once that is resolved. If my sites ever progress from hobby sites to money makers, I'll be contacting CG to see what else they can do.
I highly recommend anyone reading this that needs help to do the same.

"I have been relying on the Computer Geek and the Website Guardian for well over a year. I then realized I never even took the time to write a testimonial knowing that they are so important to my own business. Rich and the Website Guardian are top notch. Awesome and as one other customer put it - you and Website Guardian are part of my team. Without security your customers are at risk. Enough said - this is too important to ignore. All I can say is that this is the one call you will be happy you made."

"Amazing service! I would recommend you strongly to anyone! Great, fast work and awesome response time."
"I had a serious problem that needed immediate attention. Rich answered my query within 5 minutes of sending it. Amazing response time. I told him my problem and assured me that he could fix it pretty quickly after he gave me an estimate of time and cost. He delivered on his promise delivering to me a fixed web site in record time. He dedicated himself to my satisfaction, something the guys who designed my web site did not. I wish I knew of Rich last October 2010! I would have saved time, costs, and much aggravation!"

We'd like to extend our appreciation to Richard and Anna for the outstanding work they did creating a new ecommerce site for our business. When we realized that a "cookie-cutter" ecommerce site would not be sufficient for our needs, and the time and expertise required to customize a site was beyond my capabilities, we enlisted The Computer Geek to create a completely new website. The Computer Geek team communicated very well, listening to our needs, anticipating problems, and making helpful and cost-saving suggestions that helped our ecommerce business grow. Richard used his programming knowledge and skill to create a powerful ecommerce site that our business can be proud of.
"I can't express how mortified I was to discover that my website had been hacked by the Libyan Electronic Army and virtually shut down...My web guy could not keep out invaders, so I had to take matters into my own hands--and thankfully (after a random Google-search) found Website Guardian. I was so reassured by Rich's knowledgeable voice and kind support, and immediately knew I was in good hands. Shane and his crew worked an over 14-hour shift through the night and into the morning to rescue, secure, and stabilize my precious little online presence. Since I'm self-employed in New York, the most competitive city in the world, I can't begin to express the gratitude and relief I feel for the dedication and diligence that was demonstrated by Website Guardian. They are real people who really care--thank goodness!"

On Saturday I discovered one of my 6 websites had been hacked and links were leading to porn sites. I was devastated. I found Computer-geek.net online, and filled in a form. This was a weekend, and almost immediately Evan contacted me. His knowledge and professional commitment to get my site cleaned up was reassuring. I have been online since 2002, and have never been hacked before. Rich, the Project Manager, told me this was one of the worst hack sites he has seen. Computer-geek.net has now installed Website Guardian Protection Software and I have full confidence that they are there for me. Now I can do what I love - blogging and posting on my websites - without worrying about the tech stuff that I don't like dealing with. Thanks a Million! With Gratitude, Diana Walker
