These simple maintenance steps will help you avoid the need for a computer tuneup due to software errors. As a result, you will save money and the time spent waiting for repairs.
- Never turn your device off when the operating system or a program is updating.
- Secondly if you have more than one antivirus program keep one and uninstall the others, you only need one. These programs often conflict while trying to run similar procedures, causing errors and the device to run slow.
- Third, never install driver update, registry cleaner or tuneup software, if you have, uninstall them. These programs can cause damage (More info here) while performing their function and they are unnecessary. They often come bundled with another malicious program which is harmful to your system and possibly your wallet.
If you the last two points above fail to rectify your issues, then a computer tuneup by a professional should get your PC back to good health. We will also run a diagnostic test on your device and advise you of any other issues before proceeding.
