Clean up and Servicing
Just like a car, a computer benefits from regular clean up and servicing to keep it running in tip-top condition.
This is because your computer is a bit like a small child, it doesn’t clean up after itself. Things like temporary Internet files, bad registry entries and outdated system files can clog up your machine and make it run slowly.
What we do during the cleanup and servicing
- Registry Clean
- Start-Up Tune and file check
- Junk and temporary file removal and clean up
- Spyware Check and removal (as applicable)
- Identify and fix any machine-specific errors
What do you clean up?
It’s not just temporary Internet files we clean, there are other files which can slow down your computer too. Things like old Windows log files. Also, memory dumps, system temporary files and all the other applications that run on your computer will generate junk files too!
The registry of your computer is a bit like a database. It stores all the settings for Windows applications and anything to do with your computer. Just like a library card index, these can get a bit jumbled such as old program entries, i.e. books that aren’t there anymore and suchlike.
Cleaning the registry is a good idea to help your computer run smoothly, but has to be done properly, as otherwise if the wrong bit of the registry is deleted your computer may never start again! We always back up the registry changes we make, just to be on the safe side. however, we have never had a problem cleaning the registry in the 16 years we have been doing it.
Spyware and malware
This can slow down the computer significantly. We use a number of programs in a cleaning that can eliminate all spyware and malware. Just because you have a virus checker installed on your machine, it doesn’t mean it will pick everything up. With over 20 years of experience working with computers, I have never found one anti-virus program that will do it all satisfactorily. For a full explanation of viruses and what you should do if you think you have one, see Virus and Malware Removal.

A clean up will help speed up your machine but to really give it a speed boost, install an SSD. For more information on solid-state drives and the advantages of having one see Solid State Drives.
