***IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO HIRE ME***
Please understand I charge professional rates.  And if you're not sure what they are, please see my article http://www.experts-exchange.com/Other/Consulting/A_1905-How-Do-I-Know-What-to-Charge-as-an-IT-Consultant.html for an idea.  Further, I will require a 2 hour deposit before I begin work on your systems).

If you need assistance, I am available for in-person IT services in the New York Metro area, including most of Long Island.  I am also available for remote services if you are not in my area.  Please use the contact page on my web site to reach me for more information.  (Please note: I only provide "free" support to those in the online forums I frequent. Please do not e-mail me with questions unless you are prepared to pay me an appropriate fee.  If you want my assistance with your question, feel free to send me a link to it and I will participate if I have the time and the knowledge to help).

NOTE: Sometimes I find a question that I know I cannot help much in, but I can clearly see no one else will be able to either because the question lacks details that need to be stated.  I may comment in such questions with a request for more information even when I know that will be my only comment.

My web site (www.lwcomputing.com) has several documents I have written to help you manage your network, including:
*Backup In General
*How to do a System State Backup
*SBS Tips and Links
*DNS and it's Importance in an AD Environment
*Technician's Toolkit
*Online Tools (Antivirus, Antimalware, Security)
*Windows Minidump Analyzer (Find out why Windows crashed and e-mail yourself the results and some tips for resolving)
*My Software (Backup Script)

And, coming soon (I hope):
*Installing DFS with Server 2003 R2
*Installation and Configuration of Windows Deployment Services on Server 2008
*Properly managing your Windows Boot Drive
*Upgrading from NT to AD
*Remote Access Applications
*The Importance of Security Best Practices
*Cleaning Malware
*Upgrading Your Domain
*Installing Windows with No CD Drive

***IMPORTANT***
EVERYONE helping you on Experts-Exchange is a volunteer.  You may pay for access to the site, but everyone answering your question is doing so for little more than a T-Shirt at every certificate level.  Properly grading your question and awarding points is your way of saying THANK YOU to the person who spent their valueable time providing you with information.  If I provide you with information that helps you resolve your question or saves you money or you believe will save you money and/or time in the future, I expect to have my comment selected as part of your answer.  If my information doesn't help you, then I expect NOTHING - and YOU are the judge of that - but BE FAIR.

About Me:

I started with computers in late 1989 with my very own TURBO 286 that could run at a blistering 12 MHz.  It ran DOS 3.3 and had a 40 MB MFM hard drive with, I think, 28ms access time.

I spent 5 years messing around on my own and learning things as much as I could, DOS, Windows 3.1, and numerous other things.  Then I got a job as a tech at a biomedical research lab.  I was one of 4 people supporting 600+ users and actually worked part-time.  I spent over 9.5 years there until I left in the summer of 2004, with the department having grown to 20+ people and over 1000 users.  During that time I did just about everything you could do with a PC from a tech's standpoint.  Building, upgrading, repairing, installing, recovering data, etc.  After 5 years, I was moved into Windows Systems Administration, which had me installing and managing at first 10 servers and growing into 35 servers (mostly Dells) in two sites, running two Windows 2000 clusters, a SAN, and periodically implementing new technologies such as KVM-over-IP, upgrading from NT4 to 2000 domain, and IBM BladeCenter servers.  In addition, this facility had a VERY diverse computing infrastructure, with over 400 Macs, 600 PCs, 50+ Solaris systems, and 50+ Linux systems (when you exclude the linux cluster nodes, well over 200 if you include them).  While I didn't work on everything, I had some very knowledgeable people that I often asked questions and helped and sometimes we even tried to make the systems work together!

While at the lab I also handled and/or assisted in numerous other projects, such as implementing Wireless campus wide, designing and implementing a lab wide ASP/SQL based Calendar system, Access programming, and creating numerous scripts to remotely manage systems (among other things).

Since leaving the lab, and even for 8 years before I left, I've worked as a consultant for small businesses and home users.

I attribute my success and depth of knowledge to my love technology.  I love learning how to manipulate the computer or computers to do things for you, programming, software installing with Active Directory, building web sites and just about anything else.

And classes in:
-------------------------------------------------------
Administering Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 (Microsoft Course 661)
Supporting Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Core Technologies (Microsoft Course 922)
Installing and Configuring Microsoft Windows 95 (Microsoft Course 560)
Troubleshooting the Macintosh (Data Tech Institute)
SMS 2.0
SQL 7.0
IIS Administration (ZDNet Books, Instructor Led)
Assembly Programming for x86

I'm also Zone Advisor of several Topic Areas on Experts-Exchange (EE).  If there is a problem with or concern about a question posted in any of the topic areas related to Windows, Hardware, DOS, Networking, or Computing in general, please feel free to contact me at leew -a-t- experts-exchange -d-o-t- com.

Also, feel free to contact me for my input on questions in these or any other areas.  When I feel I can help, I will.
