How of often do you take time to do a PC tune up? This is something we often think about but seldom implement. Why? Well, there are several reasons perhaps the most common being a lack of expertise closely followed by a lack of time.
A PC tune up is not particularly time-consuming if you know what you’re doing but it does require a certain amount of expertise in order to be undertaken successfully.
The typical challenge any PC owner encounters when undertaking a PC tune up is what software to use. In this respect there are dozens, probably hundreds, maybe even thousands of different software packages available all promising to deliver a great PC tune up effortlessly.
Unfortunately, many of these PC tune up programs can do more harm than good to your computer and indeed, many contain malware, adware, viruses and other nasty surprises designed to cause problems to the unsuspecting PC owner.
Quite simply, 90 to 95% of these programs are a waste of money and do not deliver the PC tune up they promise. In my experience there is actually no one piece of software that carries out all needed tasks. Further, a PC tune up should also include not only a software check but also a check of the computer and any related hardware e.g. modem/router.
We are often called out to undertake a PC tune up because a computer is running very slowly. Often times this is not the result of a software problem, but, is hardware related. That is why our PC tuneup service includes both software and hardware. We’ll also check your Internet connection to make sure that it is optimised to deliver maximum performance.
Another common question we are asked is how often a PC tune up should be undertaken. there is no standard answer to this because it often depends upon how often the computer is used, the size and number of software programs installed on the computer and the level of Internet use. However, an annual PC tune up is a very worthwhile investment and represents money well spent.
