Having a broken and or slow computer is one of the last things that you want. If you’re like me and you spend on average of 12-16 hours per day on your precious machine then its even more important that you get things running smoothly. I like to think of myself as a man of the people and thus want to present you with a variety of online computer repairs ideas that you can take to the bank, literally. I have been using these sorts of things for some time now and I think that you’ll find they work very well for even the most bizarre cases.
The first thing that you should do (if you’re a Windows user) is the disk cleanup/disk defragmenter. These tools are going to enable you reduce the amount of junk that is currently cluttering up your hard drive and in the case of the defragmenter its going to literally defragment files and folders to make them easier and faster to access. For mac users you are going to want to run whats known as the “Repair Disk Permissions”. This can be found in the utilities folder on every Mac, unless of course you’ve moved it, and I would bet that most of you didn’t even know it existed so I don’t think it’ll be missing.
Once you’ve run those types of tools the next step is to ensure that your computer is free from viruses, spyware, malware, and ad-ware. Sheesh, thats a lot of wares! The easiest way that I’ve found to do this sort of thing is to purchase a top of the line product known as StopZilla. This product has been producing results for people for quite a while now and that is the main reason that we’ve endorsed it time and time again on this website.
Before you do anything that we’ve mentioned however it is vital that you back up your computer to ensure that if something goes wrong you’ll still have all of your files safe and sound. We use and recommend that you do this sort of thing using My PC Backup which allows you to join the program for free. This service is currently only available to PC users but Mac users can sign up for a mailing list on their website to be notified when the My Mac Backup becomes available.
Be advised that you could take your computer to a repair service such as the Geek Squad or something similar and have this done but they are going to charge you an arm and a leg (almost literally). Its best to do this sort of thing yourself which enables you to both save money and gain knowledge in the process.
For both of the aforementioned products we have worked out a special price discount for readers of this website and to receive that discount all you have to do is click on one of the links above.
If you have taken all of the steps that we’ve mentioned and are still having issues please do not hesitate for a second to contact us or leave a comment below. Our goal is to have everyone running a lightning fast computer with the least amount of headaches possible and we’ll go to great lengths to make that happen.
