It is the responsibility of the customer to supply all software and other items that were originally supplied with the part in order to return the goods under the warranty agreement.

Alsager Computers is not responsible for any data loss; customers should backup data before bringing any device in for repair.

VIRUS & MALWARE (malicious software) REMOVAL.

By design, viruses and other malware try to avoid detection and removal in order to maximize its effectiveness. Many new viruses and variants are reported on a daily basis and therefore can be difficult to detect and equally remove. We run a range of software applications to detect and aid removal of infections and further more use our experience to manually remove some threats. In rare cases, viruses can re-infect the machine as they have inbuilt stealth capabilities to avoid detection. Due to this, we cannot fully guarantee that the infected computer is 100% clean. If the same virus or malware infection that was detected on initial investigation is reported to us within 2 days from us returning the computer to you, then we will re-investigate this further without charge. If necessary, we may have to re install the operating system or reset the system to a factory state. Failure to report this re-infection to us within this time will result in a further full repair fee being charged for removal. This remains at our discretion.

SOFTWARE UPDATES

We are not responsible for any problems caused by software updates after a device has left our care. Occasionally a Windows update or Antivirus update may cause a problem with your system which will require further repair work to be carried out. This may incur further costs even if the software update is to a program we have supplied.
