"Beau conducts his business like he lives his life, with determination, focus, integrity and hard work. I can't imagine being in more competent hands than his. Truly a visionary! "

It is my great pleasure to recommend Beau - Israel's PC Doctor. I, and my family, have been working with Beau as our all around computer techie for many years, and he's actually been in the PC & Network support business for nearly 20 years. No matter what problems I, my adult children, or my elderly parents have had, he has been there to promptly, courteously, and expertly take care of them for us. From organizing, cleaning up / disinfecting our computers to repairing them, or most recently, providing us with our last 3 new laptops. I have always found him to give great results; he is personable, creative in his solutions, in addition to his expertise, integrity and value for the money.
And best of all, he is always available to provide ongoing support whenever needed - day or night - after he has repaired or sold you something. He will never just make a sale or do a job for you and then disappear. Once Beau has worked for you, he's at your service for the duration, and you can count on him. He made sure to install remote support systems in all our computers so that he can help us with our problems no matter where in the world he, or we, may be at any given time, and, there have, in fact, been many occasions where Beau has solved computer problems for me even when I was in India, where i spend a great deal of time, and he was in Israel or on holiday abroad. I very highly recommend him to anyone in need of a good, reliable computer guy!
And don't just take my word about how brilliant, knowlegeable, friendly, and helpful a computer technician Beau really is - I’m know that there are many others who also just as happily sing his praises.

Beau was recommended to me as a computer expert, when I was thinking of buying my first computer. I am ignorant about computers, so when I contacted him, he very patiently explained what he recommended would suit my needs. He then assembled and delivered the computer at a very good price. He built and configured the system very efficiently and explained to me in great detail how it worked. He set it up for me with all the programs I needed, in English (with full Hebrew compatibility) and patiently answered all my many questions.
When I needed after sales service, he willingly provided it and patiently listened to me with any problems I had with the use of the computer and has, on several occasions, used his remote support service to save me in emergency situations.
He is always available to talk about my computer. He is very efficient, and knowledgeable about computers - in short a real professional. I felt he also put his heart into setting me up with my first computer.
I recommend him highly.
Dear all, Some time ago my computer broke down. It had been suffering from strange symptoms for a while, until finally all it did was stare at me with a violently blue screen with instructions that led to... the same stubborn, informative but useless blue screen. I copied the text in the screen and showed it to a few supposedly computer-savvy people, and was told that the computer was beyond repair, and even worse, that also all the data saved on it would be lost...
But I also sent the text to Mr. Beau Schutz, who simply told me to bring the computer to him. He didn't make me any promises, but said that at least he would try to retrieve my data for me (I have kids who live several 1000 miles away from me, and there are some very dear pictures there), and that he would "see what he could do".
Well... he did all that and more! Shortly after I brought him the computer, he already let me know that he had been able to retrieve my personal files... And when I went to pick up the computer from him yesterday, I found not only a repaired computer, but one that works a lot better than before!!!
Beau's fee was more than reasonable, and if I thought anyone else might have done for me what he did, maybe I would be tempted to compare and say that they would have charged me wildly, but I seriously believe this problem was far beyond what most (usually self-proclaimed) computer technicians can handle, so I won't.
Beau Schutz, you really are the best, and I can't thank you enough for what you have done for me!

I am writing to acknowledge and thank Beau for his excellent and caring and very professional response to my question that I posted on the Raanana List asking for help as to how to activate the fax mode option in my XP windows service. I must say a few others tried to give me some help with this over the phone, but Beau was clear as day and took me through the step by step procedure until we completed the job and tested this out. He did all of this free of charge and I am deeply grateful. He clearly knows his computer stuff and I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Dear Beau, I would say that the two most important qualities that you have are:
1) Expertise. You have the experience and knowledge to perform the tasks that you are requested, you know how to give sound advice and you also know how to solve problems on the spot expeditiously. It is quite evident that you have a tremendous amount of experience in your field and you are, indeed, very professional.
2) Reliability. You back up what you say with actions. You notify your clients when you are coming. You try and work as quickly as possible to save your clients money. You also will give them rational advice to prevent them from getting into unnecessary expenses.
For the two aforementioned qualities, I will be happy to call you in the future to service my computers. I know that I will get professional and reliable service for my money.

We recently expanded our home/office network from two to three computers. As a result we experienced numerous network connectivity and Internet service problems.
In desperation we turned to Beau, "Israel's PC Doctor".
Beau spent a few hours with us during which he "cleaned" and optimized our computers and solved all the network connectivity and Internet problems.
We heartily recommend Beau. He really "knows his stuff".

Beau is extremely quick at determining the nature of your hardware/software repair needs and faster yet at correcting the vexing issues that I've had a difficult time conceptually understanding even though I've been using digital computers for 36-years. He has high integrity and honesty and strives never to leave without first confirming that you understand what caused the problem. I would recommend Beau to all but my chief business competitors!

PC Doctor is the perfect title for Beau. Human patients would be lucky to receive the kind of attention that Beau gives the computers he’s treating. He managed to get my computer, which was in critical condition, back to complete health. He also immensely increased my computer knowledge by explaining to me what he was doing. His prices are good, his knowledge is astounding, and he’s entertaining to have around. Highly recommended!

Key to Beau's success in his business is his passion and deep knowledge for what he does. I have known Beau for about 40 years and trust his advice as well as his technical support. This is where I have mostly used Beau, as a technical advisor on many computer configuration issues and problems. He provides very clear and detailed direction on how to solve problems and then follows-up to insure that he has been able to help solve your problems. This an incredible service considering he is on the other side of the world in Israel and I in the United States. I am pro

I don't know what's more intriguing: Beau the talented PC Doctor? or the personal Beau? Whichever, Beau is strikingly unique, but at the same time, "Salt of the Earth" easily applies. Putting aside his affable personality and admirable human kindness toward the welfare of the innocent feline souls that battle to survive amidst our mostly uncaring society, Beau is a damn good, if not great, computer technician who you can count on to do more than just get the job done. With his follow-up "Log Me In" connectivity program, he is able, if need be, to troubleshoot and resolve problems on your PC remotely from his lab. This remarkable service has saved my ass more than once. --Thanks, Beau!

My dear friend, Gill, gave me your email address after I had asked her to help me out with a computer query. After consulting you, she told me exactly what to do to solve the problem, and I was amazed and delighted when it worked perfectly - first go too! I am extremely grateful to you and, with your consent, would like to turn to you in the future if and when I have similar technical problems to solve.
I've found Beau to be a godsend! Whenever I needed answers to computer or software questions or problems, Beau was there. He is reliable, knowledgeable, personable, & he makes house calls! He is the only one I really trust with my computer. In fact, I bought my last couple of computers from Beau based on his hardware recommendations. He assembled them, installed all the hardware & software, & tested them before - so I had no problems. I'm sure you will be as happy as I am with Beau as your computer service provider
The beauty of working with Beau is the fact that he listens to what your needs are and he can take it out of the box and come up with something that works for you. He kept it simple for us and helped us to initially adapt our computer system to work with our website: http://www.elicohen.org (Our Man in Damascus). He also set up our computers so that they could talk to one another, and he taught us how to work more efficiently and provided the necessary technology that we needed. But most of all, Beau is to be commended for his extreme patience and professionalism.

Beau conducts his business like he lives his life, with determination, focus, integrity and hard work. I can't imagine being in more competent hands than his. Truly a visionary!
Beau is affable, creative, has integrity, is expert, on time, and provides great results.
Beau is honest, friendly, and knows what he is talking about. He will help you any time of the day including in the middle of the nite.... in plain English, he is the real thing you can count on him 125%. You can sleep at nite and Beau will still be working on your computer if he promised you it would be ready in the morning. His word is his bond
Great work! Beau repaired and cleaned up my PC which was crying for help and today it is singing its thanks. Simultaneously he brought my wife's computer back to life after we had given it up for dead, and it is now working better than ever.
Beau has helped keep my PC working efficiently and way beyond my expectations for a PC lifetime. He does this cheerfully and explains exactly what has been done, why and how it will help. He has de-mystified many operations and made it easier for me to maintain my PC. He always answers even my most routine questions in a timely fashion and with great patience
Dear Beau,May I start this mail by applauding your patience and fortitude in your successful endeavor to permanently repair my Dell laptop's faulty sound system?I have spent weeks pleading for assistance from such people as Dell support (Cypress), Pelephone, etc., all to no avail. Only through your diligent dedication and determination was my laptop's audio system able to be properly repaired and configured. I would also like to thank you for your conscientious follow-up service after your initial visit, and for all the work you performed to resolve various other problems on my system, via Skype, the phone and your wonderful remote support program.I would highly recommend you to anyone seeking the services of a knowledgeable, reliable, hard-working computer expert.
Beau has always gone above and beyond what I asked of him, to make sure I got the best possible results at the lowest possible price. He has always been sensitive to my needs and completely honest. He does a good job of explaining what my options are and what he recommends and why he makes that recommendation. He's very intelligent and has a good sense of humor, which always help me when I am stressed out and desperate to get my computer fixed yesterday. I don't know what I'd do without him.
Beau has been taking care of my computers since the late 1990s. He is a superb diagnostician and problem-solver, and a valued source of information and creative ideas. Fields in which Beau has provided solutions for me include system maintenance, music, audio, imaging, video, English-Hebrew word-processing, and data storage and backup.
Beau routinely performs unusual feats of memory. As his friends in the music world know, Beau can remember not only the melodies and chords of thousands of songs but the lyrics as well. Applied to computers, Beau's phenomenal memory enables him to remember precise details of my system going back for years without looking anything up. I have never met another technician who can do that.
Beau's memory is one of Israel's natural wonders.

I was attempting to set up my new Vonage device but I ran into some trouble when my internet connection wasn't working with it. Frustrated when nothing I did was working, I did a search on Janglo to see if anyone had had a similar problem and what I could do to fix it. After reading an impressive review of Beau - IsraelPCdoctor I decided to contact him. He knew right away what the problem was and told me what to do to fix it. I found him to be courteous, professional, and understanding. A great help and I'm happy to say that my Vonage works now. Thank you.
Shortly after I moved to Tel Aviv my computer decided to crash. I was very lucky to find Beau, who dealt with my crisis quickly, pleasantly, and very efficiently so that my computer (and life) were soon up and running again. Since then I haven't turned to anyone else for computer problems and Beau has always come through with a technical mastery that enables him to fix any problem successfully. I recommend him very highly and with full confidence.
Back in 1998 I decided to digitalize my bookstore's antiquarian stock. The trouble was I had never touched a computer in my life. Through a friend I was referred to Beau Schutz, who not only set everything up, but devoted hours to patiently explaining how to use the computer.Ever since, Beau has been my consistent trouble shooter these past nine years, tackling problems minor, major and imaginary (for which he wouldn't charge me!).
I heartily recommend Beau as a qualified and dedicated technician, as well as a great guy.
I want to thank you for one again coming to my help. the Palm Pilot software is now running smoothly and I can hot sync again. My computer's also working faster. This is the second time you've come to my rescue - in case you've forgotten the first was when my computer completely crashed and you managed to bring it back to life. If anybody ever wants a recommendation re your work just tell them to mail me.

Beau is one of a kind. He's reluctant to sell you services and doesn't push anything. He'll even offer to fix your computer over the phone for free! As a matter of fact if he can do it for free he prefers it. He loves computers and he really knows his stuff. Call him up and talk to him because he's really a nice guy!
It's been a great learning experience for me to have Beau as my Techie for more years than I can remember. Beau took me out of the Apple 2E stage and assembled my first PC. Since then he has upgraded me four times, each with a more powerful computer. The latest unit is the most powerful yet to handle the load of work that comes editing and working with music and video programs. Sitting with Beau as his fingers fly over the keyboard cleaning up the registry and other glitches that have turned up has given me more knowledge of computer technology than I realized. He's always there for maintenance of problems and many we have handled by phone. We're planning my next computer to handle new programs and increased file capacity with the power and speed I need. Thanks, Beau, for being there all these years.

You hit the Tri-Fecta for my laptop.
In three seperate requests for services, you scored a win on all three -
First, helped me set up Vonage Internet phone in Israel.
Second, helped me set up bullet-proof back up system, both online + a 4 gig storage key.
Third, helped me clear off a ton of junk and speed up my startups.
Would recommend your service to anyone in Israel.
BIG THANK YOU.
Beau worked on my computer on several occasions, and I found him to be perhaps the best and most knowledgeable technician I have ever used anywhere. He arrived on time and was also very fair. If anyone needs PC work call him. He fixed all my problems and also made my computer run much more efficiently.
When I arrived in Israel 4 years ago, I needed a computer and discovered the multi-talented Beau.I have never looked back.
Beau has the unique ability of being available when ever you need him. Helping you over the phone when your computer has decided to go into the twilight zone. Never ever saying, that anything is impossible, even when it could be.
Most importantly, Beau is wonderful to work with.It doesn't really matter whether you know a lot or a little about computers, software or anything else. Beau will put you at ease, talk you through it, find the right solution and you still haven't left your house.
He always finds the time to drop everything, even though he might be at the other end of the country and fix your own individual problem. So overall, if you need that specialized, individual service that is practically impossible to find in Israel, call Beau for any of your needs in the computer arena.

Anyone in need of help with your computer and/or networking needs, I want to
make strong recommendation for Beau, the "IsraelPCDoctor." For those of you who want it simple, I can keep it simple: Beau is polite, friendly, and helpful, and helped me out by phone, for free, in fact. He definitely knows his stuff. For
those of you who want the full story, its below, for those of you who just want
to know who to call and don't care for a story, here is his info, though I
recommend reading the story (below) so you understand just who we are dealing with here, folks ; )
Beau "IsraelPCDoctor" - and what a PC doctor he truly is. I am a chayal boded,
serving here in the IDF, and I recently had a Vonage router shipped to me from
the states. The problem is, setting it up with my ADSL (via YES/Bezeq &
Netvision) was not so easy. I posted on Taanglo (thanks Taanglo) and Beau
responded the very same day.
We spoke on the phone, and Beau insisted on attempting to help me out by phone first, before we would set up a house call for him to figure out what was wrong.
Beau was friendly, and helpful, and when he had time (on a bus ride from Ashdod to Tel Aviv) he very simply walked me through, step by step (off the top of his head mind you), and helped me solve my problem. Beau was completely happy helping me out without scheduling a visit and in under thirty minutes (at no cost to me) my router was setup. Now, my internet works wirelessly and my phone works as well, allowing me to call my friends and family in the states!!
So to all of you out there, give Beau a call if you need help with any of your
computer needs!!! Beau also gives great suggestions on what ISPs to sign up
with, and so on.
