It is unfortunate that no matter how much you try, you will still struggle with technology at some point within your business. Most businesses in Edinburgh use some kind of technology; computers, laptops, networks, the internet and internal online communication such as an intranet.

Here are some common IT and PC problems that are run into:

Viruses

Viruses can now infiltrate your system through a range of different ways; email, visiting websites with them on, people bringing in infected USB sticks or disks, etc. These viruses can cause unspeakable damage and in some cases crash an entire system.

If your business is technology reliant than you should protect your computers and system as much as you can with anti-virus software, spam filters and ensuring that only authorised disks are used.

If you are unlucky though, an IT professional can usually carry out PC repair by removing the virus and restoring your system and personal data. However, prevention is always better than cure.

  • PC Freezing

One of the most common PC problems businesses have is PC freezing. Basically, when a computer freezes it can’t process anything and so everything you are doing at that time stops. This might be an Excel spreadsheet file you were working on or typing up a report in Word; they all come to complete standstill until the PC unfortunately unfreezes. PC freezing is usually the result of a software problem, so this could be something as simple as installing new updates or downloading an anti-virus update that has been missed for instance. Complete PC problems can be avoided by checking on your PC regularly and installing updates when they are available.

  • Security problems

It’s not only bigger businesses that are targeted these days, with more details kept and used online, hackers are also seeking out smaller businesses to attack and if they access your system they may well be able to use your business finances as well as access any personal or sensitive material.

You can do a certain amount of safeguarding and encourage staff to use as many passwords that are hard to guess as possible. However, if you are in doubt it’s better to be safe than sorry, and so you should always seek professional help.

  • Physical damage to hardware

People are busy and so they will often eat and drink at their computers, and the fact that computers and laptops are now more portable and so are carried around, means that there is an increased risk of physical damage to the computer.

You can discourage this with rules about eating and drinking by computers, but if this is not always possible, these can be rectified by a laptop or pc repair professional.
