Many of my customers ask what they can do for preventative maintenance.
First, and foremost don’t bother wasting your money on registry cleaners and pc speedup software. I can’t tell you how many computers I see that are absolutely the slowest machines I have ever seen and they have speedup programs installed on them.
Second, de-fragmenting your computer is only rarely necessary these days. Most new computers don’t even need it to be done because they keep their directory structure fairly clean.
Third, when you install programs make sure you read carefully what you are installing. Many programs come with all sorts of “Free” marketing software. This stuff is really bulky and is nearly guaranteed to bring your system to a grinding halt.
Finally, if you do feel your computer is slow, don’t hesitate to give me a call. You may pay $80 to get it sped up. But trust me, you will enjoy your computer a lot more, when you see how much better it runs.
It’s also a good idea to dust out the inside of your computer with a can of air.
