Hardware Tuneup and Cleaning -

Just like the engine in your car, computers can suffer from a build-up of sludge, in the form of dust, cat hair and lint. Fans slow down and fail, air filters get clogged, components start to heat up and before you know it, your entire system has shut down. I can clean your system and make it literally breathe better and run cooler.

DELL Computers - Unwanted Software Removal -

 

DELL is notorious for installing more useless and unwanted software on their laptops and desktop computers than you can shake a stick at. Memory hogging startup applications, useless system services, annoying applications that constantly "phone home" --- you name it, they install it. I will get rid of it ALL for you or I can selectively remove it from the ever growing list of "annoyware". Your system will breath better (run more efficiently) and thank you for it.

 

Operating System Tuneup - MS Windows -

 

If you are experiencing slow-downs in your system --- slow boot times, slow application load times, slow everything --- a tuneup may be just what you need. I will go through your operating system with a fine toothed comb and rid it of all the build-up that infests Windows and slows it to a crawl.
