DoctorLaptop’s January Special:
Slow Computer? My famous Clean & TuneUp Special is back, for Windows & Mac. Until Feb. 01 you can now get 20% off, only €40! If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance an annual professional servicing is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, clean out junk files/logs/history/etc., update Windows+all drivers+programs and finally optimize your settings and registry for fastest overall performance. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.
