Often the purchase of a new computer can be avoided by upgrading important parts or the Windows Operating System and this can be done at a fraction of the of the cost of a completely new system.

Depending on the cost of your original PC or Laptop Computer, is often likely that the manufacturer will have kept the initial specification to a minimum.

Making this type of upgrade can often vastly improve your system’s speed and performance and give your equipment and extended life-span.

We can help you with upgrades to the hardware, such as the memory and hard drives as well as to the essential software, such as the Windows Operating System. We can inspect your PC or Laptop Computer at your home or office and give an honest jargon free opinion about whether your system is worth upgrading, before you consider investing in a new one. Also, we’ll be on the look out for other issues, which may be making your computer slow, such as viruses, malware or conflicting software and if we diagnose these, it may be possible to improve your computers performance without even upgrading the hardware.

Windows XP End of Life. Don’t let your PC go unprotected

This is a security alert for all Windows XP users! Windows XP support has ended!

Mocrosoft recently officially announced that Windows XP Support ended on April 8th 2014.

This means that in the future, users of XP could potentially be left without critical security updates, which may leave their computers more vulnerable to viruses and more susceptible to cyber-attack. Don’t let your PC go unprotected!

It could also mean that computer software and computer hardware manufacturers may begin to move away from supporting Windows XP which may lead to new programs and devices not being compatible with the ageing operating system.

Even though it was released back in 2001, Windows XP is still hugely popular, with some estimates suggesting that roughly one in five PCs across the globe still run XP.

If you still use Windows XP, then the ending of service packs and security updates doesn’t mean that your computer will stop working altogether. It’ll still continue to look and act the same as usual. However, it could become more vulnerable to cyber security risks and viruses, and over time the performance could also suffer.
