Here is a typical chain of events
leading to frustration and a call to us for help
When purchased, the system seemed very fast. Now it's slow and quirky.
After various anti virus, spyware removal and diagnostic utilities were used, the system is still ailing.
The standard factory restore usually won't work. So the "destructive" factory restore is used because it leaves no residual malfunctions.
The destructive factory restore is time-consuming, requiring a backup of all personal data prior to restoration.
Having completed the destructive restore, this is the time to install needed software and download the latest software updates.
Having completed the long and drawn out restoration process, a sense of euphoria ensues as the system is now running smoothly and quickly again.
Shortly thereafter someone uses the computer and does "something" and now it's malfunctioning again.
Windows restore fails because something slipped by the virus detection re-infecting the system and automated checkpoints.
Now the entire restore scenario must be repeated.
Computers are software driven electronic/mechanical devices and many factors can cause a malfunction, usually at the most inopportune time.
When a malfunction occurs due to a hardware or software failure, which may have been created by a virus, spyware or other software errors, you need a service company that can get the system back up and running quickly.
Wolgamot Tech Services will create an operating environment that can be restored quickly.
We will create a custom restore which separates the windows operating system from user data ensuring the second restore and subsequent restores have the system back to normal very quickly.

Online Stores for the layman or computer savvy
At Wolgamot Tech Services we offer substantial expertise in building online stores.
You may wonder, why not use eBay? or Yahoo Stores?
That's a valid question. Actually either venue would be adequate - were the client content to accept the limitations of their one-size-fits-all approach.
Conversely, the Wolgamot client soon learns just how few limitations there are. Virtually every imaginable feature of your online business can be executed through our skill, knowledge, and training in computer and Internet technology. Personalized service will translate into a unique experience for your customers as well.
Furthermore, while we engage in fairly complex operations online, we converse with you, the client, in clear, concise language. This means that once your store has been established, we will teach you in clear, layman's terms how to manage the operation and guide you through any difficulties or new challenges that arise.
As for payment, there is an initial fee covering creating the store to your specifications and then explaining how to run the store - always in easy-to-understand language.
At that point, you will select between two options, the hourly rate and the commission plan.
Although we offer an hourly rate for the store setup, help and guidance, most clients prefer commission because hourly rates mount up quickly.
No matter how savvy a client is with a computer or running a physical "bricks and mortar" store, stepping into an Internet online store is a completely new world.
Questions and help with the various aspects of store building mount up quickly to the point a client will avoid calling and struggle with a problems. Usually this leads to a client switching to a commission basis because they get so much more help for less. By that time they have already invested a bundle in up front cost.
We offer a smaller up front charge to setup a basic store with a pleasant look and then a commission on sales your online store generates. This will help cover the cost for lots of help and guidance, fixing minor problems, adding a minor feature etc...
With commission we take a major risk. We help our clients build a store in hopes it will pan out later for us when their store finally takes off.
Building a store is not easy. Some clients get the idea a store can simply put on the Internet and money will magically rain from their ceiling fans.
When they realize how much effort has to be put into the project they sometimes lose interest and never do anything to finish and promote their store.
In this case we lose big time because up to that point we will have a lot of time invested and never get a return.
We're banking on the fact that if our client works hard with us to learn the ins and outs and get their store to do well then our payoff will be better down the road and it won't cost our client an arm and a leg in up front charges.
Another plus to the commission plan:
Many times we discover a feature either on our own or through another client that will help a store do better. Instead of charging an hourly rate to implement the feature we have incentive to implement it because the better your store does the more it will help you as well as us.

It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help.
What is a Content Management System?
A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.
In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. Joomla! brings together the template and your content to create web pages.
To login to your site use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles and modify some settings.
Creating an article
Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "Submit Article" link on that menu.
The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published.
Template, site settings, and modules
The look and feel of your site is controlled by a template. You can change the site name, background colour, highlights colour and more by editing the template settings. Click the "Template Settings" in the user menu.
The boxes around the main content of the site are called modules. You can modify modules on the current page by moving your cursor to the module and clicking the edit link. Always be sure to save and close any module you edit.
You can change some site settings such as the site name and description by clicking on the "Site Settings" link.
More advanced options for templates, site settings, modules, and more are available in the site administrator.
Site and Administrator
Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "User Menu" menu (visible once you login) or by adding /administrator to the end of your domain name. The same user name and password are used for both sites.
