A server can provide significant benefits to a business. The centralisation of data and automatic backups are some of the immediate returns. Security implementation and password control can also mean that unauthorised users cannot gain access to your network and sensitive data. See our case study on Microsoft's Small Business Server

What do I need to consider for a wireless networking?
Wireless networks are becoming extremely common place in both the home and business environments. There are two major considerations, the first being range and the second one is security.
The range of a wireless network, although improving is still not brilliant. It works well within the same room and as far as the next room, but much further than that you can receive poor quality and intermittant reception which is extrememly fustrating.
All wireless networks now allow the signal to be encrypted for secure transmission of data and also prevent access to non authorised users, such as your neighbours.

What is the difference between virus and spyware?
Viruses have been around for a long time and have develped from spreading by physically transfering a floppy disk between two computers to using Word documents and more worringly the sophistication of infecting a machine through an email attachment.
Spyware is somewhat of a new problem for computer users. They are essentially programs installed on the computer often without the knowledge or consent of the user and use the Internet to report back on the computer users habits.

Why is my computer running so slow?
This can simply be divided into 3 possible reasons.
It is possible that you have the likes of viruses and spyware present on your computer, this constantly runs in the backgroud taking up you computer resourses.
You may be expecting too much from your computer. If you computer is a few years old and you have been out and bought some new software or hardware then simpy adding this may be just a little too much for your computer, slowing it down for other tasks like checking emails or using the Internet.
The final posibility is lack of maintenance on your computer, just like your car needs to pay a visit to the garage to keep it running fuel efficient so your computer needs some routine maintenance.
