Remember how well your computer ran when you first brought your computer? It was booting fast and files were whizzing around at light speed no matter how many tabs you had open. Then after a period of time it become slower and started taking forever to do anything. All that zip and speed you loved so much was gone
The good news is you may NOT need a new computer, you simply need what we call a “format and reload”. This will
Clear the clutter: Over time as you install applications you collect associated files and options everywhere. This gets worse when you uninstall and upgrade the programs as not all the unnecessary files and settings get automatically removed. All that uninvited clutter is slowing your system down and making it hard for you to find the things you need. Simply put, it’s a mess. Our technicians can clean your system back to pristine in no time.
Beat viral overload: Is the virus really gone? Sometimes a virus has multiple layers and can bury itself so deep that anti-virus programs don’t see it. Despite getting the all-clear from your anti-virus, you might also still be seeing the issue reoccuring. Perhaps the virus made a mess of your internal file structure, left pieces of code all over the place, or deleted files essential for smooth running. When an infection has been cleared but the system is still running slow, we recommend dropping it into our store asap for a check-up and refresh.
Assess incompatible software: Installing a new piece of software can sometimes produce unexpected results. While your system met the hardware and operating system requirements it may not play nice with your other applications. They can be fighting over the same resources, system files, or clashing with one of your hardware components. Clearly, something isn’t quite right, but you’re not sure what. Our team loves to play detective and get your system back to normal.
Archive older files: Some of your files you definitely want to keep. Your financial records, client files etc are all important and need to be kept – but are they important to keep sitting on your desktop? They are not just slowing your computer down, you’re at risk of losing them in a crash. It’s much safer to archive them to an external drive or cloud storage, simply let us know what you’d like to keep and we cab arrange to archive them to a safe spot.
What exactly is a computer refresh? It’s like a car tune-up, but more flexible. Rather than tick the boxes saying we’ve changed the oil, cleaned the filters etc, we treat each computer as a unique case. Sometimes we can tune it up in a few minutes, and that’s all it needed. Sometimes it’s worth starting over like from day one.
We can reinstall Windows and migrate your data (docs, emails, financial records, bookmarks, etc), putting back only what you WANT to keep. The rest of the clutter that built up over time or piggy-backed on a virus gets flushed away. We can also set up your email and install any devices you need, like printers. It’s doing whatever is necessary to give you a fresh start with your computer, but keeping the essentials.
