Why is My Computer Slow? – How to Fix a Slow Computer

Everyone who uses computers has dealt with long bootups, long program startups and slow loading of internet connections. When you are on a tight deadline or require maximum productivity, the last thing anyone wants is to be sitting, waiting for things to load on your computer. Perhaps your computer is old, and you feel that it’s just getting too slow. Or maybe you’ve been using a new computer for a few months and suddenly find it’s slowed to a crawl. You are sitting in front of your computer wondering, “Why is my PC so slow?” Don’t waste money on apps that promise to fix slow computers. Most of them are scams and don’t work, and many of them contain malware designed to breach your data. But before you invest in a new computer, you should take some relatively easy steps to speed it up.

Maintaining Your Computer – Security and Maintenance are Key to Efficient Computer Use

IT Maintenance is essential to maintaining a fast, secure and smoothly running system and network. All devices connected to your business network or used for doing business must be maintained regularly. They must also be analyzed for ease of access and operation and have established security protocols and defenses in place to protect your hard-earned business and personal data. With the expanded use of remote and work-from-home employees, having a team of IT experts to support your systems is imperative for a small to midsized business. Your IT support team can train your staff, update your software, inspect and monitor your hardware and provide iron-clad cyber security for all your devices and networks. GEEK-AID® Computer and Network Support specializes in customized Managed IT Services for small to midsized businesses.

As your business grows, expands its network and adds more devices such as smart controls, smart devices, wireless access and remote access, your network's cybercrime vulnerability and need for cyber security will grow. In addition to maintaining the hardware, software and security, employee training and regular IT support must be ongoing. New users and new devices will require additional training to use those devices efficiently. Hardware and software installation and maintenance, repair, cyber security and network protection are all related and must be consistent, proactive and not waiting for a system failure or data breach.
