Welcome to Uncle-Steve's Web Site

Steve's Computer Services

If you need help with your PC or cost effective Web cardDesign, you have come to the right place. I offer a wide range of PC services at a reasonable cost. My services are offered throughout lower Westchester, NY.

I specialize in one-on-one tutoring and my approach to computer repair, when possible, is to teach you how to do it yourself. For example: If your computer is infected with a virus or spyware, in addtition to fixing it I will, if you wish, teach you how to deal with similar problems by yourself.

For a full list of my services please follow the "Services" link on the left . If you want to learn more about me, click on the "About Me" link. If you need help now, please call me at 914-478-1340 for a free phone consultation.

My Photos

One of my interests is in Digital Photography, and I can teach you how to get more out of Photoshop. As an example of Photoshop possibilities, take a look at the Photoshop-modified photos posted on the "Photos" page (photos link).

Why Uncle-Steve.net

For many years I have been helping my family with their computer problems. When the phone rings and I hear "Uncle Steve" I know that it's my great nephew, Casey, with a PC problem. I have been Casey's computer guru for many years and we have built two PCs together. He is now 17 and has won awards for his computer knowledge. When selecting a name for this site, Uncle-Steve seemed like the natural choice. Now that I am retired from the engineering world the site is dedicated to my computer services business.

These are links to some of my favorite places on the Web. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I will be adding more links to this page, so come back soon.

I learned the importance of oral hygiene at an early age. My father was a dentist, my mother and sister Dental Hygienists. But I didn't understand how good a dentist my father was until he passed away. It was not easy to find a dentist who was as competent as my father. For years I changed dentists often. Then I found Dr. Brown in Dobbs Ferry. If you are looking for a good dentist, give him a call.

I have designed Dr. Brown's web site. It will give you an idea of my design skills and perhaps introduce you to a new dentist.

My friend Saara is a Artist who creates the most wonderful Glass Art using a klin and other advanced techniques. I had a great deal of fun creating this site for her.

Do you have back problems? There is now an alternative to back surgery. I know because for two years I could hardly function. I had all of the "conventional" treatments and was on my way to back surgery. Now thanks to Dr. Striano and a wonderful new technique called "Disk Decompression" I am back to playing Tennis without surgery. It gave me great pleasure to create this site for Dr. Striano and three of his associates

For the last five years I have been involved in the design of my high school classes' web site. The school is Forest Hills High School in Queens, NY. The site serves as a resource for graduates from 1955 through 1959 but also has lots of good memories of the '50s.

Steve's Recomendations

Eventually I plan to create a page of recomendations for safe computing. I am posting this before that page is finished because the Internet has become very dangerious for the average user.

For years I have been telling friends and family about a great free anti-virus program called AVG. That along with a firewall was all that was really necessary untill reciently. The problem with most Internet Security software has been that it has slowed down your computer a lot unless you had the latest and greatest PC.

Now the people who developed AVG free anti-virus have developed an Internet secutiry package that has minimal impact on your PC. I recomend you take a look at this package and decide for yourself. You can find out more or buy this security package at www.grisoft.com or from a US Distributor who offers free and unlimited phone support. The link to the distributor is provided below.
