RESCUECOM Releases Spring Cleaning Tips for Your PC

SYRACUSE, N.Y., May 3rd ― With the arrival of spring, RESCUECOM has put together five helpful ways to do a spring cleaning on your computer. Nowadays, spring cleaning shouldn't just pertain to your home and yard ― simple upkeep of your personal computer will provide immediate benefits now and prevent the need for computer repair in the long run. Help yourself today by trying these five easy-to-follow tips, and avoid needing computer support and computer repair in the future.

1. Back up your data.

If you don't do this regularly, you risk losing something you want to keep, whether it's family photos, your senior thesis or that work presentation you are delivering Monday morning. Anything can be lost because of a technological breakdown or human error unless you regularly perform backups. Our computer support specialists can work with you today to create a backup of your critical files that. You can store this backup at your location or use RESCUECOM's secure remote backup solution.

2. Defragment your computer.

Over time and with regular use, files and folders on your computer hard drive break down and become fragmented, causing your computer to slow down or in severe cases to need computer repair. Defragmenting generally improves file retrieval time and overall performance of your system. RESCUECOM can provide the computer support you need to defragment your PC and get it running quickly again.

3. Take out the trash.

It's crucial ― if you want your PC to keep running smoothly ― to get rid of programs you don't use anymore. Computer support specialists stress the importance of removing any non-essential program that starts when your computer starts, because those programs slow down the initial boot process. It's not just programs slowing you down, you should also delete anything you no longer need: temporary files, unnecessary downloaded photos and videos, etc.

4. Update your computer programs.

By updating your programs, they will keep running smoothly and your computer will stay protected. If you aren't sure how to do this, have a computer support specialist do the work to avoid potential mistakes and the need for computer repair. Either way, whether you do it, or a RESCUECOM Certified Technician does it, make sure to keep your system up to date.

5. Physically clean your computer.

Every so often your PC can use an actual cleaning. Focusing a can of compressed air on the keyboard, fans and other components of your computer can prolong the life of hardware, help system stability and decrease noise. You can perform this computer repair yourself, or turn to RESCUECOM for computer support.

...When I called my compute was completely dead. Going away on Sunday and needed to have access to my computer to get emails out before I left. I talked with T and she was very pleasant and understanding. Take all my information and had tech David call me back. Davis was so awesome and worked with me to get to the point were he could take over my machine. I am so thankful for David he was patience, understand, working with me. He went above and beyond to ensure me that everything will be okay and he would work all night if he had to get my computer fixed. I worked as a supervisor, office manager for many years, I would have been delighted to have David on my team. Once again I am thankful I gave rescue Com I have never any problems with any of the techs. I really appreciate David approach to customer service. Once again he was AWESOME! less
