There are many reasons why a computer slows over time. The most common problem is temporary and junk files that are created when using the internet or running, installing or uninstalling programs. Surfing the internet can be the biggest culprit. But Windows itself can be its own enemy. Updates and new versions can zap a computer of its RAM and its hard drive space. Not to mention the other forces lurking in the background, viruses, spyware and malware can sometimes make the system unusable or very slow. By cleaning the system of these useless files it frees necessary resources your system needs to run multiple programs or just surf the internet.
Even new computers can benefit from a good system cleaning. New systems often come with free trial programs. Programs that are free for a limited time. Often they take up valuable disk space and park themselves on your desktop.
Frequently asked questions:
Q. Is my system worth fixing?
A. In this throw away society some people are quick to tell you no, it's not worth it, just buy a new one. Usually it's the major retail stores or a friend who thinks he knows computers. Unless the computer is over four years old there may be ways of upgrading your system. MCS can evaluate your system and give you options to upgrade or if you need a new system give you the knowledge to purchase a new one.
Q. What upgrades can be done to speed up my computer?
A. There are a couple upgrades that add life to an older machine. One of the simplest and possibly least expensive things to do is add RAM. Most systems, especially older ones came with 512MB (megabytes) but may be expandable to 2-3G (gigabyte). A system adding the maximum RAM would notice an improvement over a system running a standard 512MB.
Q. I think I have a virus, what can I do to get rid of it and prevent this in the future?
