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Before you assume that it is outdated and needs to be replaced, let a Data Doctors Performance Specialist perform a FREE Performance Checkup, While You Wait!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

I could not have been more pleased with Data Docotrs. Greg and Dale were very professional, knowledgeable and explained the problems to me. I also related to the technician unfortunately I do not have his name, and again he was a delightful man.

I will use this company in the future if/when needed. Again highly professional, knowlegeable and "customer friendly" staff!!!.

Jeff Jensen came out and was great. He recovered our data and also found out that our tape drive was not backing up and fixed that.

Very courteous
