Computer Maintenance in Lindsay


Is your computer due for a tune-up?

Over time your computer will slow down and become unresponsive doing the simplest tasks. It might take a long time to startup or to shut down. Do you find yourself restarting your computer because it constantly freezes?  It's probably time to give it some much needed TLC.

Our Standard and Advanced Health Check & Optimisation service will get your computer back on track. The Standard maintenance is for computers who have previously been maintained within 3-6 months by McFarland IT Solutions or a third party service provider. The Advanced Maintenance is for computers who have never been serviced, or it has been over a year since the last maintenance period.


Tell-tale signs your PC needs maintenance:

Your computer is slow, freezes or crashes (these are the most obvious ones)

You aren't able do something you were able to do before

You are noticing an unusual amount of pop-up windows

You have created work-a-rounds for something that's not working right

You don't know the status of your current backup situation (critical!)

You don't have current Microsoft security-related updates (critical!)

You don't have current virus definitions or any antivirus solution installed (critical!)

You aren't sure if you have a firewall in place

Printing is inconsistent

Why you need proactive computer maintenance:

Firewall, virus and spyware protection needs regular review and management

Management and monitoring of your data backup routine and files selected is critical to data recovery

Regular optimisation of your computers to increase speed and efficiency​
