Tune-Up & PC Speed Increase Services

It seems to be a fact of life: over time, computers slow down.

This phenomena is caused by a number of factors, including excessive
temp files, too many programs/services on startup, a full hard drive,
and adware and virus infestations. We
assess each and every system that comes in to determine the best course
of action. When you get your computer back from us, it is often as fast
or faster than it was when you purchased it new… especially if you upgrade to a solid state drive.

Bring your old, slow PC or Mac by for a free diagnostic and let’s make your old computer run like it should.
