A common request at Fix My Tech is computer repair in the Brighton area.  Over the years we have helped thousands of people speed up their computers by offering them a tune-up service. In most cases, performance is greatly improved.  We highly recommend a tune-up service every 1-2 years.

Computer repair Brighton. Mac and PC. Some of the common issues we address in a tune-up include:
  • Computer slow to turn on: when you turn your computer on, it goes through a large check-list of things to do in order to prepare the system for you to use it.  By eliminating unnecessary items from the check-list, the computer will start much faster as it will no longer be burdened by unnecessary tasks.
  • Conflicting or no anti-virus: anti-virus is an essential tool for both Mac and PC.  It protects your computer from threats when connecting USB’s and using the internet.  We highly recommend Malwarebytes and Avast.  From our experience these tools are able to protect our customers.
  • Missing updates and security patches: The root cause of many issues is missing updates and security patches.  During a tune-up, we ensure your computer is fully up to date.  Having updates and patches blocks viruses affecting you in the first place.
  • Lack of hardware resources: one of the biggest breakthroughs in IT has been in storage technology.  Solid State Disks (SSD) are now commonplace and they replace Hard Disk Drives (HDD).  These parts form the foundation of every computer – it’s where all the information is saved, read and written.  After this upgrade, a computer that took 60 seconds to turn on – turned into a PC that starts in 10 seconds and instantly loads programs.  We can’t recommend this upgrade enough, it really makes a difference.
  • Slow internet connectivity: when browsing the internet, slowness might be caused by unnecessary add-ons and plug-ins – a tune-up service will fix this.  In addition to a slower computer, the network might be a bottle-neck.  We also offer network configuration and trouble-shooting to improve your internet connectivity.
  • Lack of free space: A computer needs a minimum of 10% free space to function – we aim to have at least 30-50% free space or all of our clients.  By addressing this free space issue, we assure that the space you have left will get you through the next 1-2 years until your next tune-up.
