Computers again

There not only seems to be a flurry of virus infections hitting PCs lately (I've got a couple more friend's machine to fix today) but its also that time of year when a lot of systems seem to get hit by power surges. Maybe this is just a Northern Ireland thing, but usually around the height of summer I come across a lot of machines that get fried- and in most cases the power supply doesn't contain the damage. If you don't have one fitted, get a surge protector. I've seen too many machines get fried- motherboards, hard drives, everything.
Play it safe.
