Our PC Health Check keeps your computer running smoothly
Our great value PC Health Check is all you need to keep your computer/laptop running smoothly. We'll check the hardware and software is OK and remove any nasty viruses, malware and spyware you might have picked up. Even without any these on your system, over time your computer can become clogged with unwanted software, old files, program remnants, unneeded startup items, spyware, viruses and even dust! Even new computers can contain "bloatware"; lots of unneeded software and programs which start every time you start your computer and hog resources, slowing you down.
The PC Health Check is a comprehensive service of your PC or laptop
For just £49.99 we will perform a multi-point checklist on your computer to determine if it's running at its best and identify any issues through a series of system checks, stress tests and diagnostics. When you give us your PC/laptop, let us know if there are any specific problems you need us to look at. If any issues are identified, we'll advise you on the best course of action to get it back in top condition.
