McHenry man founds ProFix

McHENRY – Frank McClatchey developed a reputation among friends for knowing just what to do when their computers slowed to a crawl – or worse.

Now, the 58-year-old McHenry resident’s former hobby is his vocation. McClatchey has started ProFix, which offers computer and laptop repair, data recovery and backup, virus and spyware detection and removal, software installation, driver updates and optimization, website development assistance and more.

“For more than 18 years, I’ve been repairing computers and helping people out with their technological questions,” said McClatchey, who in February departed the computer and tech repair division of a large corporate entity to devote himself full time to ProFix.

“New technology comes out every six months,” he said. “I stay on top of it.”

McClatchey said he is excited to be doing what he loves while helping people to overcome some frustrating technology scenarios. He said he realizes, these days especially, people rely on their home computers. ProFix offers a flat rate of $55 for most repairs.
