Are you wondering why your computer is so
slow? Many things can slow down your system and cause you to have problems with
speed. Here are some of the reasons why your computer is slow.
If your system is slow this might be because
you don’t have enough RAM. Newer programs especially games and other graphics
need a great deal of memory to operate properly. If your system is slow then
you just might need a new RAM stick to speed the system up. Try having more RAM
installed in your system and see if this speeds it up.
Sometimes your hard disk can get slow. This
is due to the disk being too full or there might be errors on it that need
fixing. A slow disk will make the entire system slow to a crawl. ComputerFix SLC can help you speed up
your computer disk by fixing errors and other problems with it so your system
operates better. Once the disk is fixed you will notice improved speed and

software that’s incompatible with newer software on your system. This old
software can cause conflicts and slow your system down with errors and other
problems. Once you remove this software your system can perform better. Make
sure you system software is upgraded and that you always use new versions of
software programs to reduce errors with your system.
Sometimes you cаn have too many programs
that open up when you start your system. Many of these are unnecessary and they
can slow your system down. When you buy a new computer many of these programs
are already installed. If you remove the ones you will never need then you can
speed up your system. ComputerFix SLC
can help you speed up your computer programs so your system has better

When something goes wrong with your
computer it can be a real headache. Many computer problems are a result of not
cleaning your computer properly and looking after it. Here are some things that
you can do to ensure that it’s cleaned properly.
One way to keep your computer clean is to
make sure your software is up to date. Often computer problems are caused by
software that’s incompatible with each other. You will get errors and other
problems that crop up unexpectedly.ComputerFix SLC can help you solve
problems with your software and make sure everything is running smoothly. Make
sure you also upgrade your operating system when it prompts you as this can
also cause problems with your system if you don’t upgrade.
To keep your computer clean you also need
ant-virus software. There are far too many malicious programs out here to run
the risk of not having protection on your computer system. You should also have
Internet security, malware, and spyware protection as well. Most anti-virus
manufacturers have these programs as a package for your system, such as Norton
or the AVG program. Make sure your anti-virus program is kept up to date for
the best protection for your system.
Another way to keep your hard disk and
other parts of your computer running well is to use the system cleaners that
come with your computer or you can buy individual programs. These will vary for
Mac and PC systems but they all do about the same thing. These programs ensure
that your system is running at peak performance levels.
If you run into problems with your computer
you need a good backup solution. An external drive allows you to backup all
your files in case your system crashes. You can also use this to keep your main
disk free of files you only need so often and instead store the on the external
drive. Always ensure your system is backed up on a periodic basis.
Your computer can accumulate dust and this
can cause heat problems, errors and parts can even fail. Having your compute
cleaned periodically will remove this dust. ComputerFix SLC can help you clean
your computer of this dust and ensure that your whole system is running well.
Dust is a leading contributor to compute problems such as slowdowns and

Computer Viruses What are They? What to do if Your Computer Is Infected...
Aside from mechanical or hardware breakdown, one possible
threat which can negatively affect the performance or functioning of a computer
is when the system eventually gets infected by a computer virus.
What are computer viruses and how do they attack
A computer virus is a small program or software which can
linger and spread inside the entire computer system and has a general effect of
corrupting or affecting the proper performance of existing computer software or
program. And as computers advance, these viruses evolve as well. Majority of
these viruses are now more powerful, destructive, and harder to eliminate or
confine. Some of the viruses target the destruction, corruption, or even
deletion of your computer’s most important files. And because they easily
replicate, they can infect a large portion of computer data and system in a
very short period of time.
If computer viruses are traditionally confined to specific
types of destructive programs, today, several kinds of computer infections are
now tagged and classified as a virus. The terms malwares and viruses are now
often used interchangeably, there are also the worms, computer bugs, and the
dreaded Trojan horses. Malwares are types of computer infections that have more
devastating effects. Malwares can be programmed to perform the destructive
capabilities of known viruses and at the same time perform a malicious or
illegal act. Malwares can be programmed to destroy and at the same time steal
computer or personal data. They can also be used by perpetrators to monitor or
spy on the computer activities of an individual, etc.
All of these computer viruses are usually spread through
several means. The primary culprits include the internet, through e-mails,
download sites, infected external drives or flash drives, infected servers or
computer networks, etc. Among the symptoms of a possible virus infection are;
computer program malfunctions or errors, unexplained or sudden slowing of computer
performance, frequent crashes or breakdown, data loss, or the simple alert or
triggering of the antivirus program itself.
How to deal with it if your computer is infected
the antivirus program. Antivirus or antimalware software or programs
are primarily installed to prevent viruses and other kinds of malwares from attacking
or infecting your computer. These programs also have the capability of
isolating and solving out the virus problem if a virus has eventually slipped
through the computer security or firewall. Dependent on the type of virus that
has infected your computer, an up-to-date antivirus program should be able to
delete and resolve it.
-Minimize the number of programs used.
Since viruses and malwares can infect other computer files, data, and program
in an instant, it is ideal not to run other unessential program while the virus
problem is being solved. The less active the computer is, the less are the
programs and data the virus can attack.
-Start salvaging or saving files.
After learning that your computer has been infected by a virus, it is
recommended to backup and salvage as much important files as possible. This
will prevent data loss if the virus problem eventually gets worse.
-Consult and seek help from expert.
If the computer virus problem is extraordinary to the extent that your basic
clean-up efforts and the antivirus program aren’t that effective, it is best to
seek the help of computer technicians or IT experts. This could be your last
resort especially if you are trying to save very important computer files from
being corrupted and destroyed. In Salt Lake City, Utah, the IT and computer
experts of Computer Fix could be of great help. To visit our website click here on our name Computer Fix SLC. We look forward to helping you!
