This year for New Year’s I’m bring up one of my very favorite online tools: PC Pitstop: www.pcpitstop.com
PC Pitstop provides a free tune up for your computer. You just need to click on the Tune Up for new members. You can register, but it’s not necessary. It takes a few minutes to run PC Pitstop and you may need to answer a few questions (such as what type of Internet connection do you have) but the tool with run a few tests and will tell you how your computer is running.
I love it. It will tell me what’s wrong and how to fix it. The answers aren’t too technical and they are generally pretty easy and quick to fix. Usually I will see a difference in how my computer runs after running PC Pitstop and making changes.
