The clinic is free and open to the public. For the first 100 participants, Advast Antivirus Software Company will be on hand to give participants virus software licenses at no charge. At least 40 technicians from the college will be on hand to assist the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. No computers will be accepted after noon.
The public can bring their PCs or Macs to the college to receive the following services:
- Computer diagnostics
- Minor computer repairs
- Virus removal
- Virus protection

While computers are being serviced, Forsyth Tech faculty will hold mini workshops for participants who are waiting for service, addressing topics such as how to secure personal computers and create simple websites.
Limited parking will be available in front of the Technology Building. Visitors can park in spaces reserved with orange traffic cones.
The clinic is held twice a year—in the spring and fall—and is used as an opportunity to give students hands-on experience, applying the skills they have learned to practical training and to give back to the community in which we serve.
