PCs or Macs: Tuning & Fixing
Once you get that bright shining desktop or laptop in your home or office, you need to outfit it with software: either software that you already own from a previous computer, software that you purchase for your new machine, or software that is available for free on the Internet. Having used PCs for 35 years, I have a lot of experience with software packages that make your PC useful. In fact, as a result of my own use of PCs and Macs, I have a recommended set of applications, most of them free, that I can install on your PC to give you a powerful tool for accomplishing your tasks.
Upgrading and Fixing
Eventually, everything deteriorates: what was once fast and sleek evolves through no one’s fault, to something that doesn’t work or doesn’t work as well as it used to work. These days, with viruses, adware, and spyware, it is difficult to keep a machine from becoming bogged down and underperforming: but these maladies are a fact of life and we must deal with them.
As a result of being a PC user myself, I have developed the skills to either resurrect a computer that no longer works — or to be able to say objectively that it is time to get rid of your old machine and buy a new one that will be twice as fast, twice as big and cost half as much as your old computer. Sometimes all that is needed is a memory or disk upgrade which I have performed many times on many different types of machines.
