No, your computer isn’t slow.

How many times has this happened to you…

You buy a brand new computer and things are great!  You can browse the web at speed.  Programs open and close when you ask.  Life is good.

Then time goes by – maybe a year.  You’ve accidentally opened some sketchy websites (clicking links on Facebook is more dangerous than you thought!).

The antivirus that came with your computer is flashing expired warnings.  A teenager used it.  You installed a “Java update”… is that a thing?  After all that abuse, your computer is now acting possessed and you are beginning to hate the thing.

You don’t need to buy a new computer for $1000.  If it has been two years or less, your hardware should still be plenty fast.  You just need to get the software refreshed.  This can be done by performing a computer tune-up, or by reinstalling Windows fresh.

A tune-up removes bad programs like viruses, spyware, and advertising programs from your PC.  It also tells good programs to stop running in the background – these background programs are a major cause of slowness.

Re-installing Windows fresh gives you the new computer experience.  You will need to re-install your programs and re-connect your printer.  A skilled technician can back-up and restore your data to the computer so you don’t lose any pictures or documents.
