As we reach the end of the second week of the New Year, how are your 2019 resolutions coming along? A new year is the ideal opportunity for a great many people to embrace a fresh start, be that a new career, a healthier lifestyle or giving up the things we know are bad for us. It is also the ideal time to get your computer or laptop checked over.
Most reputable IT companies will provide a computer health check service either remotely by you granting the technician online access, or by assessing in a workshop or even in your own home or workplace. But is a PC health check worth your while? Naturally we believe it is, and therefore we have listed the top three reasons why we feel that getting your laptop or computer checked over is a good idea.
3 Reasons To Get Your PC Checked
Speed: You may have noticed that your laptop or desktop is running slower than it used to. There are several reasons why this may be, but by getting a health check, you will be able to find out why your machine has slowed down and offered a solution to make it less frustrating.
OS: In the world of computing, OS stands for Operating System. Whilst recommendations are for all of us to upgrade to the latest version of Windows for both security reasons and compatibility issues, there are still vast numbers of people using Windows 7, Windows XP and even Windows Vista. A health check can ascertain whether your computer is safe and if you can/should upgrade.
Security: We have very sound reasons why we recommend a particular brand of computer security software - because it is, quite simply, one of the most secure software packages out there at the most reasonable price. Not all anti-virus solutions are the same, so to check you haven't inadvertently downloaded something you shouldn't have, a health check can run a quick scan.
We incorporate an annual health check in some of our computer support packages, but we highly recommend you get your computer checked out on a regular basis to ensure that you have the most stress free experience possible with your technology.
