  Tips for optimising your PC:

  • Ensure that the PC is free from dust and dirt. Pay special attention to the fans and internal space within the PC with a hoover.
  • Download, install and run CCleaner for the PC from this link. Do not install the bloatware products within the installation. Upon opening analyse the system and delete any files the cleaner finds. This will delete temporary and unwanted data from the PC which will improve its performance. We do not advise that you utilize the Registry cleaner.
  • Download, install and run Malware Bytes for the PC from this link. Once again do not install the bloatware. After the software has been activated perform a full scan on the computer. Any viruses or malware will be identified and deleted.
