This guy needs to learn how to run a business. I took my computer to him over 3 weeks ago. I know it does not take that long to get a few viruses removed! I called him today and ask him when my computer might be ready and he said that he does not know because he is so backed up. I told him that I would just pick it up and take it somewhere else and he got an attitude with me and said that the $ I paid he would go towards storage!!

Look, man, if you are that backed up, and then do not tell someone that you will have it done the week it is brought in. Plus, I had to pay $25 up front just to leave it there! What a crock!! Something needs to be done about this guy. I did take it somewhere else and they had it done within hours, and it works perfect now. Word to the wise, do not deal with PC911 unless you want to wait a while and get screwed over.

Same experience here. Kept for two weeks, each time I went in, he acted like he had never seen me before. Took it to Dr. Boone's kid and he fixed it on the spot while I waited.

On a positive note the store next to 911, Cartridge World, goes out of their way to locate the printer cartridges you need at a very good price.

PC911 is the worst business I have dealt with in my entire life. Not only did he say he could fix my PC in a few days and then he took weeks, my computer was missing a few parts when I finally went and got it back (still not fixed). This guy is lazy and terrible at business management. Take your computer anywhere but here.

Who is the guy at Green Tree Lakes who has signs up by the hwy. Has anyone used this person yet. If so how is he. Also what is the Boone Guy's phone number. I agree, the last few times I've taken mine to PC911 all i've got was put off and more put off! I do know that there is a guy at WOKA that works on them too.

Maybe you guys laid off the Porno sites you wouldn't have to take your computer to be cleaned. That's probably why he so busy and backed up!

I recently opened a computer store right beside Benton Seafood. My turn around is around 4 to 5 hours unless I have to order parts. My business is called iTech. I do not ask for money upfront. You do not have to leave a deposit to leave your computer at my store. I do computer repairs, virus removal, wired and wireless networking, custom built computers, and more.
I know that there are a lot of people out there that do not like Chris Ulmer AKA PC911, me included. My dislike for him is not because he is competition (not that he really is), but for personal reasons that I choose not to go into. I get so many customers in my store that is tired of how he treats his customers. He has no interpersonal skills, he is rude, and he repairs computers at his leisure.
If I do a virus removal, and I did not catch every virus, then the customer can bring their PC back to me and I will take care of it free of charge.
I also put a program on each computer that tunes up the PC every three days to keep it running smooth, and no, it is not a free trial. Virus removals and tune-ups are $50. House calls are $60. If I do not repair your PC, then you do not have to pay me anything. So, if you want your computer done right the first time by a well trained computer tech, then come see us and ask for Kenny.

How cheesy. Using this forum to bash your compitition just to promote yourself. Show some class. Stand on your own merits. If you are better then ppl will use u. U don't have to knock Chris In a public forum. Especially in this town.

I did not use this forum to bash Chris or to promote my business, I promote it plenty. I was just letting people know that there are alternatives to PC911. There are a lot of other great computer techs here in town. Some people have heard of, and some are not as popular. I do not know who Michael Boone is, but now I have heard his name. Maybe we all can help each other out. I deal with PC4U and NCC. Those are great guys and they do great work.
I know Chris is a crook, and so does everyone else in this town. That is nothing new around here. There are people who Chris treats well and they like going to him, but there are also people who do not. If you want some bashing, I can do that. But, I am not that type of person. Go to PC911 if you wish, no one can stop you if that is your preference. I am not saying he is all bad, but his reputation does seem to precede him. If you do not want to do business with me (iTech) then don't, that is perfectly fine. But at least people know that there is another company in town that is not a fly-by-night and I will do my best to make my customers pleased with my work.
I am proud to own a business of my own, and I take pride in what I do. I already have a good rep with the public, and I would like to keep it that way by being a good business person. Every customer who comes in my store gets the best service possible, and I intend on keeping it that way.
This is not an attempt to promote my business, like I said before. It is an attempt to let people know that there are better alternatives.

I tried to fix my husbands computer but it gave me all kinds of troubles...you know the computer has a feature that allows you to set it back to a certain date and hopefully this will fix the problem..well it has always worked on mine before..but when it got done now the thing will power up but only for a min and then nothing...it says the startup is corrupted..any suggestion we do not have the disks that came with it and if it is not too late would love to save the pics as they have very important value for my husband...what is your diag doc..

Lets see....you just called him a crook, in a public website. And signed your name to it. Have you ever heard of slander or defamation of character?

You are lucky he doesnt sue you for slander. Becareful of what you write on these forums. People have been sued and a lot of people are getting sick of it in this town.

Just a warning.

Thanks Kenny!...Don't pay any attention to the Trolls that feed off this forum. They come on here and try to make the rest of us look bad. We asked a specific question...who else fixes computers in Douglas, and you answered. Don't sweat the small stuff. Just do what you do best and keep on trucking.
