About Jay Shapiro Computers
Jay Shapiro, the owner and CEO graduated college in 1991 from SUNY with a passion for computers. I have worked at most major brokerage houses such as Kidder Peabody, Bear Stearns, Citibank, Painewebber and UBS over the last 20 years. In December 1998 I started this 'side business' while gainfully employed. I put in 14 hour days to keep both things going.
December (my lucky month) 2007 I got laid off from UBS due to the downturn in the sub-prime mortgage market. When I walked out that door I said to myself now is a good time to continue my 'side business' to see what I can turn it into.
12 years later I am still working for myself, which I will admit is harder than a 9 to 5 job. I truly enjoy satisfying the customer and do whatever it takes.

I had the distinct pleasure of hiring Jay and his team to come in and handle data recovery and operating system formatting for a company I was working with. He and his team were very professional and didn’t nickel and dime us with honest estimates. I highly recommend him and would hire him and his team again.
I have know Jay for several years and he has always come through for me even on weekends. Myself being non-technical Jay has been able to solve any computer-related problem I have encountered. I highly recommend him

Jay Shapiro has just finished fixing my computer expertly and painlessly. I am most impressed with his expertise and efficiency. I would recommend him to anyone needing computer assistance!
Responsive, saved my life. I highly recommend him. I will use him in the future.
Jay has worked on my rather complicated computer set-up for several months now, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has a broad knowledge base which allows him to be innovative in approaching problems from several different directions. One of the things which has impressed (and helped) me most is his ability to discreetly educate the client about the problem, its probable cause, the remedy - and what to do to avoid it if at all possible in the future. I am amazed to find that I typically find myself feeling more competent after Jay has done his work! All of these qualities, along with a good sense of humor and a generally positive disposition, make working with him a pleasure, as well as being extremely productive.
Jay did a good job setting up the WiFi mesh. Everything went very smoothly and it's running well.
Jay was terrific to work with. He was persistent in his efforts to solve my problems. Was ultimately successful. Highly recommend
Very happy that I found Jay! I was stuck in Paradox hell. No one else knew how to convert our old Paradox files into Microsoft--friendly documents. After some problem solving, Jay was able to take care of it expeditiously. I am relieved -- and very satisfied. Now, I plan on using Jay for more of our small business office needs. You will be pleased with his attention, work ethic and results.

Jay Shapiro came to my rescue, when I had last minute problems with a very important Power Point presentation. It was a Saturday night, and time was running out. Luckily, I had kept an ad for Jay’s company. I called him, and although he didn’t know me, he came that very evening to help out. He made some adjustments in my computer, and then taught me how to use Power Point to get the results I needed. Jay is very knowledgeable, and he will work hard to fix any problems you have with your computer. He is also a pleasure to talk to. Jay really saved the day for me, and I highly recommend his services.

Jay is easy-going, very professional and knowledgeable. We feel very fortunate to have had his help with our issues, which he solved deftly throughout the apartment!
My wifi switch on my Dell laptop would not turn on at all, and I looked for many ways to fix it. When I brought it to Jay, he was extremely persistent and worked tenaciously to solve the problem. My computer had an aggressive virus, and he cleared it within a few days. My wifi now works extremely well and I have not run into any issues since. He worked flexibly with my schedule, and he updated me periodically throughout the repair to let me know what was working and steps he was planning to take to fix it.

My computer needs to be cleaned and updated. Jay was excellent at getting rid of all the malware and other nasties had collected over time. Made sure all issues were fixed and the I understood what he was doing. Plus he likes animals. Will use again.
I work on an old Mac system with old towers that started giving me trouble. Jay doggedly restored my Mac. I also had two very old Macs that he also restored - each with their own separate problems - not an easy task. I believe his expertise is with PCs but has incredible knowledge of old Mac. I highly recommend Jay for all your computer needs.
Friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.
I had some home wireless problems and found Jay on Home Advisor. I wanted someone to come on site, not work with me remotely. Jay told me he gets the most satisfaction out of solving problems, and he solved a few for me. When we hit a snag with Spectrum, he didn't give up until we reached a resolution. He is professional, prompt and knowledgeable. I would work with him again any time and happy to recommend him.
My 2008 IMAC wouldn't start (stuck on white screen). I called Jay and he was able to remove my hard drive, back it up, and reinstall a new hard drive. Thanks Jay for getting me back up and running. Hopefully, old software will hold up.
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable with any computer issues. Highly Recommended!
Flexible and patient. I had 3 problems and he solved 2. The third was a hardware issue that was my fault. All around pleasant experience
My computer froze. Jay was wonderful! He came to my home and knew precisely what was needed to bring my computer back. He worked diligently and continues to do so to resolve my issues. Jay is courteous, sincere, and tenacious. He makes sure you understand just what is being done and what needs to be done. He is conscientious and shows up on time; and if, for some reason, he is delayed, he calls to let you know. I trust Jay with all that is on my computer and am glad I found him. I know I can count on him to see the job to a satisfactory resolution.
I hired Jay to help build my son’s computer. He was very professional, competent, reliable, responsive and efficient with his time. Jay was knowledgeable and helpful and followed up with us after the fact. I would use Jay again and I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs help with their computer.
Excellent ! Jay found things that were slowing me down, and others that could possibly put my data at risk. The actual "problems" that were my initial concern were relatively minor and were soon fixed. I'm really glad he did a deep dive on my system. Highly recommended. AAT NYC 12/18/2017
It is a pleasure to recommend Mr Shapiro. I recently had significant difficulties with my computer and Mr Shapiro was quite persistent, patient and diligent in his efforts. The solution was effective and to my full satisfaction. His fee was very reasonable. I recommend him without hesitation.
Outstanding resolution of issue in restoring computer to its original work.
Jay Shapiro is a conscientious NYC professional. He is prompt, courteous, talented, hardworking and maintains his focus. I found he supported me fully, even as I called him to follow up on intricate and arcane aspects of the problem he addressed for me. I would utilize his services again should there be a problem. In short, his service is highly recommended.
I was recently hacked and locked out of my home personal computer. I found Jay Shapiro Computers online and called him immediately. I was concerned that I would lose all my documents, pictures, etc. He set my mind at ease and assured me that he could save everything. Although I was skeptical, having already been burned, I brought my computer over to him. He could have accessed my computer remotely but being locked out he could not gain access to the internet. After meeting Jay face-to-face, I felt a calm come over me. Within a couple of days he was able to rid my computer of any bugs, viruses, etc. and reloaded my very important documents, etc. He even uploaded a Malware program to further guard against the monsters. I personally recommend Jay Shapiro to solve all your computer needs. He answered all my many, many questions and concerns. I personally found him to be very affordable, patient, charismatic, knowledgeable and diligent. Without hesitation I suggest you call Jay Shapiro Computers to get the job done right!
Jay was professional and efficient with his repair of my laptop, keeping me posted with updates along the way - much appreciated.
I realized a little too late that someone was trying to scam me, so I called Jay to help me protect my computer before any real damage was done. He was at my apartment within the hour and worked for three hours servicing my computer and setting up new protections. It was such a relief to have the issue dealt with so quickly and in the comfort of my own home.
Jay Shapiro is terrific! He's knowledgeable, professional, and reliable. He even cleaned my computer remotely to work around my busy schedule. I run a small business and Jay is now my go-to for all my computer needs. I highly recommend his services!

Jay gives the best considered advice and work I have seen in a long time. Time, cost, quality, and need are all included. He is extremely easy to work with in this often overwhelming time of throw away devices. I highly recommend this clever fellow to anyone who wants these silly devices to work so we can earn a living.
Jay's the best! Reliable, thorough, efficient - Jay provides quick service at truly reasonable prices. Jay and his associates truly know their craft; even issues that I was unaware of were fixed. I've used Jay's services not only for my home pc's but also at two different jobs over the years. Jay's no nonsense, no attitude - he takes the time to explain. Once Jay fixes your issues you will never use anyone else. Many thanks Jay!
I have know Jay Shapiro for about 5 years and can say that he has truly a lifesaver on many occasions. I am not the most tech-savy and Jay has guided me to the proper destinations in the computer world.

Jay has been incredible in straightening out my various computer issues. He has not only been very patient and a problem solver, but very available until all issues had been resolved. I highly recommend him for any computer problems you might be experiencing. I wanted to add something onto my previous review of Jay Shapiro.

I own a small construction company and service NYC and the outer boroughs. Time is very limited. Recently we had computer issues and time was of the essence. I called Jay and within 1 hour he was on site resolving our issues. From this positive experience I have upgraded my computers, printers and internet service.

Jay has been repairing & maintaining my business computer for over 7 years, his company has been an invaluable asset to my business.

I want say that my experiene with Jay Shapiro computers was nothing shy of exceptional. We had a limited window of time to work with and his company made it happen!
I was having PC issues and was badly in need of an upgrade from Vista to Win 8. I needed to look for help.I accidentally (and luckily) found an ad for Jay Shapiro Computers. Since then, I have used his team twice so far. Both times I was more than pleased with his professionalism, pricing and excellent customer service. If you do need someone to assist or repair your PC, you will not go wrong using Jay Shapiro.
Alex P 08/05/2015 I got in contact with Jay Shapiro , I was having a big virus issue on my MAC computer, I always believed that MAC (apple) computers did't get many virus or none at all. I could not even turn the computer on with out it going crazy on me . Spoke to Jay about it and since I'm from Jersey ,we decided for him to take over the computer from his place of work. He worked tirelessly on it ,until he found the problem and corrected it. For anyone or any company needing any computer TECH to fix their PC issues , this is the guy to reach ,responds very fast ,professional ,and most importantly knows what he is doing. If you have a problem don't hesitate to call him, I recommend his work and I don't really write reviews but I'm a satisfied customer.
Can't praise these guys enough. Top notch customer service. Computer broke, needed it fixed fast. Guy came and met me near my job, process took longer than expected so he took it home with him and brought it to my job the next day. Despite it taking longer, he still gave me the price he originally quoted. Cant recommend higher
Jay helped me fix my computer and cleaned up years of viruses. I would recommend his services.
I was impressed with Jay's knowledge for trouble shooting. My drivers had crashed and Jay solved the problem. He also returned calls on time. My problem required time and patience. At one point, I thought Jay was gonna give up. Because my lap top needed Windows Vista, someone else probably would have told me to just invest in another computer. Also, it's been 3 weeks and I haven't called Jay back to complain about anything. I am satisfied with his work performance and would recommend him to friends and family. Thank You Again, Ayan Layo
My husband and I have been very satisfied with the services provided by Jay Shapiro and his technicians. Jay is always very responsive to our issues and we can count on him to solve the problems in a timely, competent, caring way. We are not computer experts so his help has been invaluable.
Jay Shapiro's service for my ailing computer was fast, efficient and dependable. I will call him when I next get into trouble.
My laptop was running very slow. Looked up computer support on HomeAdvisor.com and Jay's business came up. He picked up my computer, took for a few days and worked on it. He cleaned up the computer so that it works a little faster. However, my laptop does not have a strong enough processor. He did the best he could do for the machine. We spoke about the issue and he took additional time to remote into my computer to analyze if any other issues existed. Recommendations were made, which I was helpful. Good service in my opinion.
Jay Shapiro, Excellent technical service
Jay Shapiro and the associates he has working with him have always provided me with prompt and capable service for my laptop and iPad, especially when there is some kind of emergency, like a machine going black or a message hinting there is a danger lurking. Jay has also been willing to review a problem remotely, which can provide a quick turnaround. When I was first setting up equipment and the router for wifi was not consistently working, Jay knew immediately which router would be most reliable, and there have been no problems since then. He has always been helpful with both the computer and any applications that I wished to run. Also good expertise on Apple devices.
Jay Shapiro, Superb Computer and Electronics Technician
The exceptionally superb Jay Shapiro Computers are the ONLY people allowed to touch my computers and related equipment. My Dell computer was recently hacked into.

Has worked on my tower computer, my iPad, my Wi-Fy equipment, set up Apple TV for me and a booster WiFi. Jay always responds quickly to fix my problems. He stays with his work tenaciously until I am completely satisfied. Jay is a master of what he does. He's up to date on the latest technologies, Windows and Apple, and I'm sure others. He's really great at explaining the best ways to use my equipment. He not only shows me features I didn't know I had, but also explains the best way to use them. Jay is very accommodating regarding my schedule. Plus, I'm getting excellent value because Jay is so knowledgeable that he's able to work at an unusually fast pace. As if he were part of the computer or other device. He's so polite and kind, I consider him a friend.
