Computer Optimization

It’s a good practice to have your computer optimized from time to time. This will help to avoid computer crashes and slow performance. Keeping your system up to date can help to avoid future problems. Our technicians will delete unwanted or unneccessary files, remove startup files which slows your system, make sure your operating system has the recent updates, and run a virus scan to see if any of your files are affected.

What is Computer Optimization?

TuneUp Utilities 2011Your PC Mechanic will perform system updates and improve PC speed and performance, including startup and shutdown optimization, Windows updating, menu navigation improvement, quick launch and taskbar cleanup and program shortcut creation. Computer Optimization will enable basic security functions, including antiphishing and pop-up blocking activation in Internet Explorer, Firefox, safari etc. This also include the removal of unwanted programs and trialware. The final phase of the PC Mechanics Computer Optimization process is to create desired user accounts (if applicable) and test to verify that all PC hardware and software is functioning.
By working with you we can correctly navigate to the root of what is needed to resolve your computer problem, saving you time and money. We will always advise you of our recommended course of action to take weather it’s purchasing a new computer or buying the software or hardware required to resolve your problem. In some cases it may not be worth repairing your computer but instead purchase a new one because the cost of the new technology is less that the cost to purchase what will be needed to repair your old system.

This is typically a computer application, but the same methods can be applied to economic markets, bureaucracies or other complex systems. The motivation for such activity is called a performance problem, which can be real or anticipated. Most systems will respond to increased load with some degree of decreasing performance. A system’s ability to accept higher load is called scalability, and modifying a system to handle a higher load is synonymous to performance tuning.

Systematic tuning follows these steps:

  • Assess the problem and establish numeric values that categorize acceptable behavior.
  • Measure the performance of the system before modification.
  • Identify the part of the system that is critical for improving the performance. This is called the bottleneck.
  • Modify that part of the system to remove the bottleneck.
  • Measure the performance of the system after modification.
This is an instance of the measure-evaluate-improve-learn cycle from quality assurance.A performance problem may be identified by slow or unresponsive systems. This usually occurs because high system loading, causing some part of the system to reach a limit in its ability to respond. This limit within the system is referred to as a bottleneck.
A handful of techniques are used to improve performance. Among them are code optimization, load balancing, caching strategy, distributed computing and self-tuning.
