At Mountaineer I.T., knowledge is power!

Get Remote Help!

We don't want to limit ourselves in ways we can help our clients.  That's why we offer remote assistance for problems that require more than a phone call, but don't necessitate the inconvenience of dropping off your computer in our shop.  All you need is a powered-on computer with internet access, and we will do all the work for you from right here in our shop!  Just kick back, grab a cup of coffee, and let us handle the rest.

Access Knowledge Base

Here at Mountaineer I.T., we believe not only in going the extra mile to help others, but also in giving others the necessary tools and knowledge to help themselves, saving them time and money.  We encourage our clients to learn and grow right along with us, which is why we want to provide you with easy access to the same knowledge and resources we utilize in our everyday work.  Here, you will find a wealth of tips, tricks, and how-to's on our knowledge base subpage, as well as links to some of our top free software choices for virus protection and other purposes.
