Welcome to the Compton Networks Organization website!

I am Michael Compton, owner of Compton Networks Organization now located in Kettle Falls WA USA. I have been repairing computers and supporting the networks they run on professionally since 1998. I am versed in all versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system; supporting both server class systems as well as home user systems. I also support the GNU/Linux, Solaris and BSD small server class systems.

I do minimal web design and support such as you see on this sight. If you or your organization needs an Internet presence similar to this site, I can set up for about $100 including domain name and simple hosting. How is that for affordable? After that you can maintain the site yourself or I can handle it for you on an on-call or monthly basis.

How do some of the fallowing prices sound to you?
  • Average virus removal is about $40
  • System restore on most home computers $50
  • Simple web site like this: $90 + domain registration & needed hosting (Could be as little as $10 a year depending on your needs).
If you are in need of advanced services like maintaining your own file or web servers I can help you set up what works best for you or your organization. Remember reusing the same copy of Windows on more than one computer is usually illegal, depending on it's license. I have some better solutions and they are more affordable.

Compton Networks Organization has been an officially licensed and registered business since 2008 with it's primary focus being to help the elderly, disabled and other low income individuals afford to have their computers maintained and serviced. Your use of my services helps provide the means for this.

Compton Networks Organization is a registered non-profit business association with the State of Washington and the federal Internal Revenue Service within the USA (this does not necessary mean that your donation will be considered tax deductible)
