Computer Cleanups

A computer cleanup from AVA+ Technologies is a great way to keep your computer running smoothly. It’s like an oil change for your car, and just like cars, not all are created equally, and an oil change won’t make it feel like it’s brand new. BUT, it still needs to be done, and without a regular cleanup, your computer can be significantly bogged down by unnecessary temporary Internet files, bloated file caches and registry items, and junkware.

This service is one that we provide the most to our clients and customers. It’s a regular set of processes that take a day or two typically, and when it’s returned, your computer should look more or less the same as it did when you brought it to us. What’s different is in the details. We have run your computer through a series of programs designed to remove anything that doesn’t need to be there. Your computer should have started up faster thanks to disabling or deleting junkware like unnecessary update tools, and programs designed to simply beg for money. Beyond that, your hard drive should access files more efficiently thanks to a defragmentation tool that goes above and beyond what Microsoft’s built-in tool can do.

Most of the programs we’ve used have been removed when your computer was returned, but a couple may have remained. Ccleaner is a fantastic, easy-to-use application for keeping your computer tidy. It will remove a number of different types of junk files and caches. Simply double click the icon on your desktop, select Analyze if you first want to see what will be removed, and then select Run. Ccleaner will do the rest.

The other program is Malwarebytes. It’s a bit of a mouthful, but it’s great to scan your computer with this tool from time to time to make sure nothing vicious has taken up space on your hard drive. Double click the program, and click Scan. It should walk you through the rest of the process. Give us a call if either of these two programs do something or ask a question you’re not sure how to answer.

As briefly mentioned above, a cleanup is helpful, but if your computer is older, or is lacking the recommended amount of memory, this may not solve all your performance-related issues. If you feel the cleanup wasn’t all that helpful, please let us know. We’d be happy to provide alternate methods of speeding it up for you.

Hopefully that answers your questions about cleanups, and what to expect after having the cleanup service performed here at AVA+ Technologies.
