WHY IS MY COMPUTER SLOW? IT USED TO BE FAST!
Most of the software and system programs are continuously updating. This is great for you and for the most part, is free, but very few of us bother to upgrade or update the hardware. This can result in the software becoming out of sync with the hardware and not able to deal with the ever-increasing demands on it. Sometimes a simple update such as more memory or switching to a faster hard drive or updating to an SSD can make a huge difference.
GIVE ME ANOTHER REASON WHY MY COMPUTER IS SLOW? IT’S NOT OLD.
Quite often programs you install or update will install additional software you didn’t ask for. Sometimes you are tricked into loading software by web sites that tell you your computer is “Slow”, “Has hundreds of problems” or “needs to be backed up”. All of these claims are untrue. They are “HOOK” lines to try and trick you into installing software to try and direct you to sites you don’t want to go to or pay for things you don’t need. We can quickly fix all of these issues for you.
HOW MANY SECURITY/ANTIVIRUS PROGRAMS SHOULD I HAVE?
One! Security programs have the highest level of access to your computer. In most cases, as high as your Operating System (e.g. Windows). They will be looking for any other program that is trying to make changes to the system that it’s not authorized to do. For the most part, two or more security programs will see each other as a threat and will launch attacks at each other. Best case scenario: Neither will protect you. Worst case scenario: They will crash the computer.
