Common causes of PC problems
Causes of Sluggish or Slow PC!
The computer starts to slow! This is one of the most common problems we get calls for, not just that it takes longer to start up but using your favorite programs seems to get slower with each day. This is very often the first effect you notice about your PC and it can be caused by many different things.
Causes of problems like this can either be Fragmented data on your hard disk, viruses, spyware and adware, errors in the registry are some of the most common reasons.
Most computers New and old are sometimes not properly setup and configured, PC is not really a One Fits All type of device, people uses their computers differently for different purposes.
That said having programs that came BUNDLED with your PC often times slows down your computer experience as your PC loads all the essential and non essential programs during startup. Some programs specially those you rarely use can be safely remove, tom improve performance.
Other instances people install programs on their PC and often times those programs may or may not work given some conditions or limitations of the PC. Most will leave the program or remove them soon after, sometimes removing the software will not remove all settings and files leaving unwanted files and registry settings on your PC.

“ Dr.PC remote computer assistance is a life saver. Only yesterday, late in the afternoon, I had a problem with my email system, I was stressed out big time, so I called Gerald from Dr.PC and he fixed it for me in no time. He does this with Remote Assistance. You just call him up, go online with him and download the Quick Support software and he works through it while you watch and learn. He is the only person I would and will recommend for your business and personal computer problems. Thanks Gerald, I look forward to working with you for a long time to come.„
