With all of the identity theft that we are reading about anymore, how does one know where to go to fix their computer? If we take it to the "Geek Squad" or any other computer store to have the computer repaired or "tuned-up", how can we be assured that our information (Passwords, financial information, social security numbers) won't be stolen by the person who is working on the computer? Most of these computer repair people who might be tempted to sell your information to someone else. Where do we go to have our computers worked on and yet can feel safe?

Best bet is to tune and fix your own. I've always done this cause it's easy to do.

Try reading up on it and watching a few videos, some on CNET are a good start.
