PC tune-and-lube service

  networking FAQ  :: network admin  :: order

If your PCs are running slowly, crashing inexplicably or generally misbehaving, they could probably use our tune-and-lube service.

We'll give your PCs a good going over - they usually run faster, hold more data, crash less frequently, and are more secure afterwards.

We check for and correct a multitude of possible system faults and glitches:

  • operating system patches
  • startup configuration
  • malware signatures
  • temporary files
  • unused programs and devices
  • file system integrity and fragmentation

Cost/Benefit Analysis: You're paying your staff to sit and wait for their equipment. If you have 6 staff waiting for their computers for an average of 10 minutes/day each (in total), on an average salary of £20/hr, that's £20/day or £4800/year spent paying your staff to watch their computer screens. Our invoice is likely to be much less than that, and so the work will pay for itself within a few months. Focusing on key staff will accelerate the return.

Please call to arrange a time.
