Spring has arrived, and you know what that means: it’s time for spring cleaning. But while you bustle around the house removing clutter, washing windows, and packing away your winter items, don’t forget about your computer cleaning!

Many people don’t think about it, but your computer deserves a spring cleaning of its own. Over time, most computer systems gather ‘dust’ in the form of archived software updates, invalid registry entries, leftover bits from uninstalled programs, and of course the ever-threatening pieces of malware or unwanted programs. (All of that is in addition to regular computer dust, which as we all know, is a real issue here in the desert southwest). Our friendly technicians are experts when it comes to cleaning up your computer.

Spring cleaning is also a good time to have us help you declutter your computer. Do you have years and years of accumulated pictures on your PC that you never look at but don’t want to lose? We can help you move them to an external hard drive where they’ll be safe, but won’t take up room on your computer any more. Or do you want those photos to be easily available, but safer than on your PC? We can help you set up a network attached storage device to keep all your important files safe in a redundant system while still making them available for you to use. 

Another important thing to consider when spring cleaning is your home network equipment. If your router or modem hasn’t been checked lately and it’s getting up there in age, we can recommend a replacement for you that will improve the performance of your network.

If you haven’t had us out in a while to make sure everything is running smoothly, now is a great time. One of our expert technicians can take a close look at your machine, remove any viruses or unwanted programs, optimize the operating system, and generally ensure that your computer and all your technological devices are running smoothly.
