In my latest research I stumbled across this really awesome website thumbtack.com. This site allows you to find people to do all kinds of labor at really awesome rates. The way it works is say for example you need someone to mow your lawn. You simply go to the site and search lawn care. The site will then ask you a few questions and send your request out to local yard men. They will all bid on the job and you pick the rate that best fit your budget and expectations. You can browse their profile where you can find information such as years of experience, pictures of past jobs, and reviews by past customers. Check the service out and comment below to let us know what you think.
Computer optimization is the process of a computer technician going in optimizing your system for optimal performance. This includes updating drivers, updating vulnerable software, cleaning up start up processes and services, cleaning unnecessary keys from the registry, and configuring your antivirus just to name a few.
Computer optimization is important for a number of reasons. The main reason being preventative maintenance. Preventative maintenance will always be cheaper then the problems you are attempting to prevent. Behind the scenes your computer is running lots of processes and services, and if not managed properly they will slow your computer down drastically. Day to day use takes a major toll on your computer's registry, and you may not notice but the system is getting slower by the day. Optimizing your computer protects you from malware and extends the life of your machine by decreasing the workload you are putting on the computer.
I personally recommend my clients to have their systems optimized by a technician every 6 months, and I also give them a few tips to keep the machine running smoothly in between the optimizations.
Computer optimizations typically range from about $50-$99, but the issues they prevent range anywhere from 75$ for a virus removal to about $1500 for severe data recovery.
