    Slowed down computer issues fixed, i hope.

    Well, my 8 year old laptop has been getting slower and slower, moreso over the past 3 months it seems.
    I decided to try out the FixMyPC site, and, it honestly seems to be running as quick as when I first purchased it.
    Haven't seen any annoying pop-ups, and just seems everything is working up to snuff now.
    The initial contact I had with them was at a cost of $19.95, whereby they scan your computer for you and determine just what IS wrong with it. It turns out I had over 4,000 separate issues slowing down my computer.
    Next, they offered a service to repair all the systems on my computer, via remote access to their tech. service, at a cost of $99.00.
    I figured, what the heck, if they can do what they say for that price and keep me from having to spend $800.00 +- on a new PC, lets go for it.
    Long story short, in about 3 hours time, they had it working like brand new again.
    I'm not a salesman, just an old tired/retired Mechanical Engineer, and, for what it's worth, I'm quite pleased with the results.
    Just thought I'd share this info and experience from my end as a consumer of their product, and I give them a thumbs-up.

    Not a bad deal at all, nice that it runs like new. Also nice to see a service like that actually work well. Mine had the same issue and my main problem was the startup took forever, After installing various programs and uninstalling, it really cause my laptop to suffer in performance.

    Since I got rid of all the pay for virus protection programs and went with "Microsoft Security Essentials" plus "Ccleaner"* I don't get all that slowing down addons anymore. Ccleaner also gives one the ability to adjust the start up items just as Windows does (only it's easier).

    I'm always suspicious of a "cleaner" when it finds so many issues, but I guess if a computer isn't maintained regularly they build up. I've been running trouble free since using the above programs.

    * I do throw Piraform Ccleaner a $20 every six or eight months or so because their tech folks handled a problem for me a few years ago. It was fairly involved but they got it right. Ccleaner removes "stuff" that IE leaves when closing even when you have the proper boxes checked...

    Maybe I just don't see the big picture...but isn't it Microsofts fault in the first place all these bad things happen? Then you rely on them to "fix" everything that shouldn't be broken in the first place?

    Exactly. Would you take your John Deere tractor to a Kubota dealer to get fixed? Like say, a bad drive shaft on a 2320? But this isn't the case or point, is Microsoft's software really bad or broke because someone else decided to alter it? I figure, It's not a tire manufactures fault if someone throws nails in your driveway and you get a flat tire.
    With over 40 years in the computer/IT industry I must say I am very comfortable with Microsoft Security Essentials,,,, for now.

    I can say one thing for sure, the money saved on addressing my computer issues will now head towards buying the JD 54" blade and hydraulic system for it from Muttons.

    I finally resolved all my desktop computer issues to my complete satisfaction. Took it outside, with a single blast from the 20 gauge shotgun, 6 rounds from the Glock 9mm and for insurance all six rounds from my dirty harry special, 44 magnum, I finally found peace after the smoke cleared & the parts fell back to earth.

    Then, as I was sitting there, I got out the JD 855, loaded the remains into the 1500 cart & buried this pile of useless diodes, chips & recycled scrap metal from Ho Chi Min city. I'm a happy person again.
