Optimization

Ever wonder why your computer gets slower and slower the longer you use it? By default, computer operating systems (especially Windows) wind up destroying themselves over time. Thus the more you use your computer, the slower and less stable it becomes. We cannot stop this from happening completely, but by modifying the layout of Windows and performing some needed tweaks we can greatly extend the time before your computer needs additional servicing.

During the optimization process, our Union Square Computers' technicians perform the following tasks:

  • A complete spyware/adware scan to remove resource-hogging programs that can compromise both your personal security and the integrity of your computer or network
  • A complete virus, Trojan, and worm scan with the tool regarded by security professionals throughout the world as the very best
  • All important operating system updates, including those determined to be 'non-critical' that we judge to be necessary
  • Relocation of various operating system files and components to prevent what we call 'OS decay'
  • Tweaks of various operating system parameters so that your software is 'tuned' to your hardware, maximizing your performance, productivity, and stability

In most cases, your computer is actually faster after we perform optimization than it was when it was brand new. For people wanting to get the most out of their computer without paying for major upgrades this is the best way to go. We are confident that you will be amazed at how your system runs when it has been cleaned up and fine-tuned.
