Microsoft cracks down on piracy!
Microsoft's release of Service Pack 1 checks your Product Key to ensure you have a legit copy of WindowsXP. From what we have seen and heard you may see this error message even if you have legit copy, but if you're unsure we suggest you find out before it becomes a problem getting further updates and support.

New Location...
We have opened our new retail location at 2525 State Road 60 East in Valrico, Fl. Our new hours are Monday - Friday 8:00am to 7:00pm and Saturday 10:00am to 5:00pm. Our new location and hours will better serve our customers needs and allow for easier access to our office. Our new showroom features additional display computers, a wide selection of cables and accessories, along with software and much more.

Lightning Season...
Lightning season is here and your computer could be at risk for serious damage. You can protect your computer, and related equipment, with high grade surge protectors. American Power Conversion (APC) is the world leader in surge protection and battery backup devices. Along with protecting your computer, we also suggest plugging your TV's and stereo equipment into surge protectors.

Lightning and power surges can permanently ruin your electronic equipment. Changes in voltage cause lockups and loss of work. An APC will protect your equipment from the threat of bad power. The Personal SurgeArrest series offers affordable surge protection ideal for small office and home equipment such as home PCs, printers and modems.
