Do you need a new computer? We can recommend
or custom build a new computer for your business or
home. Maybe you don't need a new computer,
maybe your existing machine just needs some TLC,
or a memory upgrade.
Why clean your computer?
Repair, Upgrade, or Replace?
I know how hard it it is make the choice. I
will give you the information you need to
make this decision. Perhaps you are
frustrated with your old machine, but it
just needs more memory. Maybe your
hard drive is full of old temporary files
and spyware, and a good cleaning will
get you back to where you need to be. It
may be cheaper in the long run to
replace your machine now. We'll help you
make an informed decision.
Does your business need a website?
We can help. Do you need a basic web
presence or would you like to start selling
Many programs, including the operating
system, save temporary files on your hard
drive. Unfortunately, these temporary files
get left behind long after they were
actually needed. When you add up all
these files you may be looking at
hundereds of megabytes or even
gigabytes worth of files that take up space
and slow your machine down. Windows
provides a drive cleaner tool, but I prefer
I often get asked what is the difference
between running a drive cleaner and
using a drive defragmenter. A drive
cleaner removes temporary files that you
don't need--like throwing away the junk
mail and old notes from your desk. A drive
defragmenter pulls together the pieces of
a file so they are together--like putting the
papers that you need back in the folder in
the right place in the filing cabinet. This
makes it faster and easier to find the files
the next time you need them.
If you've read this far and you were
expecting something completely
different--yes, you are correct. Dust is the
enemy of electronics. If your fans and air
intakes are blocked or your motherboard
is covered with a "blanket," your computer
will overheat and its life will be shortened.
