I can be YOUR PC GEEK. 

I have worked with PCs for over 30 years and have 15 years of full-time professional computer experience.  I am knowledgeable in all Windows operating systems from DOS through Windows 8; Server 2003 through Server 2012; in Hyper-V and VMWare ESXi as well as physical environments; and am a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (Windows 7, Configuration).

Department plus much more.
