More about slow computers

If your computer is slow, crashing, freezing or if it is just the time for a yearly check up we can come to your place in London and help get your slow computer back in shape.
The difference between a computer that has not been cleaned up in a long time and one that has at least a yearly check up is huge.
A slow computer repair is something that it is not very expensive to do and with the right advice on how to protect your computer you will be on your way to having a faster, more stable system.
Everyone is sick and tired of all these programs that claim to do everything and then they just end up being a waste.
Annoying pop-ups and toolbars that give you endless and useless option are almost a fact of life for a lot of people and are a common reason why computers slow down and have a lot errors.
Our clean up and optimization services in London are focused on removing all kinds of junk software, toolbars that slow down your computer when you go online and other problems that stop a laptop or a mac from functioning properly.
Two of the most important and usually forgotten things to do on any computer, either it is a mac, a laptop or desktop computer are to update the drivers and to do all the operating system software updates
Computer drivers are programs that tell your machine what various hardware components do and they help slow computers by allowing the operating system to make full use of the hardware functionalities.
Operating system updates bring improved functionality, stability and improve the security of all systems both Apple and Windows.
As part of our optimization services we will also make sure that important operating system drivers and Windows or Mac Os X updates are done.
Hard drives faults are very common, especially with laptops and MacBooks because they are the easiest ones to drop or are subjected to physical shocks more than iMacs and tower desktop computers.
Other times it is just a matter of wear and tear or manufacturer faults but overall through our slow computer repair services we deal with a lot of faulty hard drives.
The first thing that we do for any virus removal, slow computer or general software problems jobs is to check the health of the hard drive
Considering that everything is stored on the hard drive It is extremely important to be done and if the hard drive is faulty we can replace it, re-install the operating system, all your programs and recover your data.
Memory RAM is often confused with hard drive storage space
The role of computer memory is to load temporarily(not to store) files in order to be served further and the short explanation is that the more memory your computer has the faster it is because it can load more at any given time
We provide memory RAM replacements if the modules are faulty or upragdes for laptops, Apple macs and desktop computers
Everything can be done at your place if you live in London
Have you ever noticed your computer being noticeably slower when it is hot and the fans are noisy and spinning very fast
That is because when the cooling system is clogged up or the fan is damaged, the processor and other important chips on the motherboard are not being cooled down properly and their capacity of processing data is slowed down
In the long run, slow computer repair or not, any machine that overheats needs to be fixed because heat can damage important logicboard micro chips which will make the repair much more expensive
The principle behind a computer that runs fast is not to have a lot to do. Which is not that great because computers are supposed to be very good at doing a lot, very fast.
No matter how good your laptop or mac is or how great the hardware inside it is, the truth is that hardware is controlled by software.
Therefore being careful what you download and being picky about what programs you install on your computer is extremely important if you do not want to have a slow computer that needs to be repaired.
Always take your time to see what gets installed especially when you do not know why something is being installed in the first place
Or when in doubt, close the window and google it
