Speed Up Your Computer

Speed Up Your Computer

Does your computer take forever to startup?

Did it used to start much faster when it was new?

Before you assume that it is outdated and needs to be replaced, let a Data Doctors Performance Specialist perform a FREE Performance Checkup, While You Wait!

You can speed up most computers by cleaning them up or adding additional RAM (Random Access Memory) but you want to make sure you choose the right option.

If you want to see if your computer is being slowed by excess processes running in the background, try this quick test:

  • Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to launch the Windows Task Manager
  • Look at the bottom left-hand corner for the number of Processes running

The lower the number, the more resources Windows has to execute your desired commands.

If The Number Is More Then 35-40 On A Desktop Computer Or 40-45 On A Laptop Computer, You May Need To Have Your System Examined To Determine If The Excess Processes Are Malicious Hidden Programs Or Unnecessary Items That Are Dragging Down Your Computer's Performance.

These excess processes could include:

  • Hidden Spyware And Adware Programs
  • Silent Identity Stealing Trojans
  • Viruses and Self Spreading Worms
  • Unneeded Programs
  • Unneeded Auto-Launchers
  • Excess Printer Drivers
  • Excess Digital Camera Programs
  • Excess Programs Loading at Startup

Let the Experts at Data Doctors evaluate the best course to take to increase the speed of your computer! Contact the Data Doctors location nearest you to schedule your Free Computer Checkup, while you wait!

5.0 out of 5 star rating!

Your man at the Power store (Don) bent over backwards to take care of me and my problems. Beats the hell out of the crowd at the Gateway stores.

4.5 out of 5 star rating!

I was pleased with both services: Taking it in to the store, the technicians spent A LOT of time explaining things to me and listening to my convoluted story of what was happening to my computer. They also did the work in the most cost-effective manner. I really appreciated the technician who came to fix the wireless problem, he avoided calling Netgear (usually a 20-minute wait) and was able to explain and work at the same time. He really was knowledgeable and shared his knowledge.
