My Computer’s a Slowcoach. On 3 Wheels
A computer running slow is just as welcome as a puncture on your way to an interview. And how do you sort it and stop it happening again – honestly? It can be difficult! But what you can definitely do here, is speed up your laptop, back to its old self, very quickly and easily right now. And stop a lot more of these computer punctures in the future.
Diagnose What’s Up – Easily!
Yes you can do this. Which is good, because unless you can diagnose what’s slowing down your PC, the fixing bit will be hit and miss. Mostly miss, and just a few hits. These articles give you everything you need to quickly become good at understanding, diagnosing and curing the problem. We’ve been sure to cover everything, in an easy to understand style, all presented in a logical order of service. For fairly inexperienced users, everything’s there; for the more expert, you can very usefully grab the checklists.
Get the Full Story, or Cut to the Chase
If as most people you’re frustrated at the problem but short on time, it’s easy to pull from the articles the steps to diagnose, and then all the steps you need to take to fix. For those who can also spend a few more minutes to gain valuable background, we explain for you exactly how your computer works, but in figurative and generic terms. So then you’re clear; but not bored stiff with tech jargon. You should find the style and some of our terms entertaining too.
Your Alternatives, and Avoiding Gotchas
All the nasties that can make your computer run slowly are discussed and detailed. From cookies and adware, to spyware, to malware. And viruses too. We also point out many other useful things that are pretty important to know. For example, what not to do at various stages, if you’re not an expert, so you can keep well away from actions on your computer settings which may seem innocuous, but could make your problems worse. We even cover why it’s so dangerously tempting at times to just rush out and drop another load of your hard earned on a new laptop. And there are some alternate ways of perhaps looking at this again. And of course we show you all the alternatives you have in fixing your PC – and that’s hopefully once and for all.
