"All my pictures of my grandchildren are on there, and now it won't turn on."
Many of us store our whole life on our computers. This can lead to scary moments for individuals and businesses alike. Whether its your grandchildren's pictures, your resume, or your business' recent financial information, you need to get that information back. And lets face it, very few of us make the up-to-date back ups we should be making. When you think you've lost it all, we are here to help you try and recover that precious data.
Just like a car, a computer requires regular maintenance to keep running at its best. Cleaning out the pipes, checking for bottlenecks that drop its speed and clearing away the accumulations of trash software that all contribute to a slower computer and overall wear and tear on the components.
Often times the software you need comes with add-ons we don't, which install in the background. Tool bars, system scanners, preformance enhancers, download managers, etc. all pile up and each takes its own little chunk of your computers processing power. On their own they don't hurt too much but once you get a collection of them they can add up. Many of these programs feel they need to start up when your computer starts which shows by adding a couple seconds to your boot time a piece.
Another issue is that regular use can leave files scattered all across your hard drive in a disorganized mess. Think of it like a shop in which people have been working and leaving the tools laying around. Each project takes longer and longer as they have to spend more time looking for the right tools. As part of the tune up process we basically put all the tools back in their proper place to make it easier for the computer to find when it needs them.
You'll get a computer back that's quicker and more stable. Schedule your tune up today!
Viruses can strike without warning and at the worst possible times. These malicious programs do their absolute best to make your computer unusable, and can be insurmountable for most people to get around. On top of that they often attempt to collect personal and financial information which they send back to their creator. Most infections these days are part of a family known as 'Rogue Anti-Virus.' They masquerade as a real anti-virus, telling you that you are infected and that you need to buy the full version of their product to fix it. They will then prompt you for a credit card and either pretend to fix the issue or claim your card failed to process and ask for a new one. If you are fooled by these it is important to contact your credit companies and inform them of the scam.
