Psybear Consulting - Computer Services
Let's work together!

Throughout my career as a "computer guy" there's one thing that I have consistently heard: "You talk to me like a human being not like a machine."

I will talk to you about information technology in a way that you will understand and hopefully even interest you in taking charge.

Below are links to software products that I recommend you have if you don't already. This is software I use on my own systems. These products will solve 90% of your computer and internet security concerns. Where possible I have linked to pages that allow you a trial download so you can see what you're getting before you buy. And you will never see a link on my web site to a product that I have not purchased and/or used myself.

And now for a little privacy...

Webroot's Window Washer   Many people do not realize that everything you do on your computer can be traced -- documents you've used, pictures you've viewed, web sites you've visited, and more. Not only is this an invasion of privacy, but these unnecessary files eat up valuable hard drive space. You can take back your privacy and improve your system's performance by regularly cleaning your cache, cookies, history, recent documents list, and more with Window Washer. "Window Washer 5.5 can potentially eliminate by far the most system traces, and did so in testing, removing over half-again as many as the closest contender. Among those not cleaned by other products are recent application lists for DirectX, recent network and printer connections, and the internal list that Windows XP uses to identify often-used programs in the Start menu. This last feature is useful for hiding just how much you play Solitaire." -Neil J. Rubenking, PC Magazine   FREE TRIAL DOWNLOAD!

Anonymizer Anonymous Surfing The Internet has become a fountain of information that most people use on a daily basis for entertainment and education; work and play. Unfortunately, the convenience of the World Wide Web also comes with hidden dangers. Online crimes are on the rise and are constantly evolving technologically. Anonymous Surfing protects your privacy and secures your identity by staying one step ahead of these online predators. Anonymous Surfing hides your IP address so online snoops are unable to track the sites you visit and build profiles on your Internet activities. By redirecting your Web traffic through their secure servers, your online identity is protected. Their servers are armed with 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, similar to that of your bank. So you can rest easy knowing that Anonymizer has you and your family covered.


The best little registry repair ...

Burn, baby burn...

Ashampoo's Burning Studio  This is fantastic CD/DVD burning software. If you've lamented the fact that         other  products are just too "bloated" and you just want a beautifully concise program to burn your music and data including ISO images, well, this is it. I have used all the major burning software  out there and I've uninstalled them all for Ashampoos's Burning Studio 5 . This is what I've wanted for years.
