You can improve your computer in many ways. The software can be updated and also the hardware. The result can be a computer you can use for an extend-ed period of time, which is both faster and more efficient.

I am currently developing a service whereby you can maintain your computer by a service contract. More information regarding this will be available as soon as I can...

IMPROVE YOUR COMPUTER WITH THE COMPONENTS YOU HAVE TODAY

Cleaning the inside of your computer

Defragmentation (this sorts Windows files, so that they are more easily available and can improve a slow and sluggish computer)

Updating the BIOS (basic input output system) This information determines how the computer will work.

Install extra partitions. (many supplyers sell computers with a huge hard drive but only one partition. Dividing up the hard drive into several partitions according to how you want to save your files can reduce the risk of data loss if the computer crashes)

The removal of programs you do not use or need and by so doing improve start-up times.

Update the program or switch to an eqivalent less resource demanding program.

It is also a good idea to create recovery cd’s which can be of use if your computer needs to be reinstalled at some point..
