Virus Pop Ups

Don't buy into these pop ups. They are well designed malware and virus scams that can cause you even more problems if you click on them or call the phone number. If you receive an ad like this on your computer, use Alt-F4 to close the screen and do some clean up on your temporary files and browser cache to help get it removed. If you need help cleaning this off your computer, make sure you contact a reputable Repair Technician. Don't allow "Support Technicians" access to your computer unless you're sure they are really helping you and not trying to rob you of your hard earned money.

Computer Over Heating?

This helps to keep your Hard drive, Processor, RAM and other electronics from over heating and running slower. Yes, when electronics over heat they will run noticeably slower.

One thing you can do to help prevent this problem is clean out your computer on a regular basis. You can buy canned compressed air to do this. Or you can use several other methods for blowing or vacuuming dust from your computer. Just make sure you don't try to use anything with oil or liquid in it. There is an electronics cleaner available, but it is meant to be used sparingly and only on certain parts of electronics.
