There are many things that can go wrong with your computer over time, and most of them don’t require a repair or an upgrade. After you have used your computer for a while, you end up with programs installed you don’t use or need, viruses/malware, bloatware, and all sorts of other things that can affect the speed of your computer.
Our comprehensive tune-up will clean your computer up nearly as good as it would be if you reinstalled your operating system from scratch. This takes some time, which is why it is somewhat expensive, but it retains your settings and files just as they are, so you don’t have to do major backups or reconfiguration once you get your computer back.
What we do:
Virus removal, Adware removal, Trojan removal
You have paid for the most expensive anti-virus software you could find, so how can you get viruses, adware, or trojans? This is a good question, and one that has a very simple answer. Your anti-virus is geared for speed. Instead of checking for all viruses, they look for only the most common viruses. This isn’t a bad thing. Imagine that your software made it so your other programs load painfully slow. You might be tempted to just shut it off, and chance that you will get a virus. After all, what’s the point in running software that saps 25% of the speed of your computer to check for something that is fairly rare. To keep this from happening, all the major anti-virus companies only check for the viruses they believe you are most likely to encounter. If you happen to come in contact with one of the rare ones, you won’t be protected, and you will be infected, no matter which active anti-virus you use. We use tools that do a comprehensive search for these malicious programs, as well as potentially unwanted programs, and they find what normal antivirus software misses.
Over time, hardware manufacturers release new drivers to fix problems they have determined need to be fixed. These can range from security vulnerabilities to speed fixes. Upgrading your drivers can help speed things up, as well as make things work better.
Installed software assessment
We check to see what software you have installed, and determine which software you should probably delete, which you should upgrade, and which you are good with keeping as is.
General computer speed up
Each computer is different, and based on your configuration, there may be things that can be done that will speed things up. Our technicians will assess your entire computer and determine what you need to do to speed things up.
