Speed up your PC with a Solid State Disk (SSD)

SSDs offer the most cost effective way to dramatically to improve the performance of your PC or laptop.

Guide to solid state drives

The price of Solid State Disk Drives (SSDs) has dropped sharply of late.

Solid State disks are far faster than traditional disk drives. They consume less power and are less prone to failure as there are no moving parts. They are silent too. Laptops gain the greatest benefit as their disk drives are normally built to run slower to save battery and be able to handle being moved while in use.

There's great deals to be had from Umart in Sugar Road, Maroochydore.

If you are interested in upgrading, I can assist in fitting and getting your existing disk drive copied to the new SSD.

Backup, Backup, Backup!

Have you got a backup strategy in place? If you disk drive fails, you not only lose your data but all the programs and settings on your PC. Additionally you may have to pay again for a copy of Windows, Microsoft Office etc. I can set you up with a simple but effective full system backup.

Anti Virus

I try to use free software where possible but with Anti Virus products, you get what you pay for. Most of the free products slow down your PC and of late, nag for payment for extra features.

I recommend using a combination of Eset NOD32 Anti Virus and Malwarebytes

PC Tune Up Tools

Please do not use them. At best they are snake oil and worst they can muck up your PC.
