Computer Won’t Print
Printer manufacturers have spent a huge amount of money on research and development over the last ten years, and have released many new printing technologies. Unfortunately, they failed to do the same with the supporting software, and have failed to keep up with technology. Ever since printers have been connecting to wired and wireless networks, their reliability has dwindled – mainly due to the underlying protocol on which all networks operate.
We can overcome these by using a few small tricks, such as setting a static IP for the printer. This isn’t completely unbreakable because replacing network devices, such as routers or modems, can sometimes undo these changes. If you plan on changing internet providers, or they send you out a new router, printers will often cease to operate. Factory resetting the router can bear the same results.

Constantly Getting Popups
These are mistakenly confused for viruses, although some viruses do use these tactics. In saying that, there is often something that is a bit dodgy about these programs. They can be as stubborn to remove as viruses. People who report these popups often have no recollection of installing the programs. This is because the software authors hide them with ‘free’ things.
When someone installs the program, there will often be nothing more than a check-box authorising the installer to put something else on which you don’t want. The software authors set a tick as the default option on these check-boxes. If you don’t want to install – you must uncheck it. Always be very careful when installing, and read every step carefully before clicking “next”. It takes a few seconds to check what’s happening but can take around an hour to remove bunches of adware.
When programs are on the auto start list, it means they start every time Windows loads and this can also make popups appear. You may have knowingly installed these programs, but the manufacturers decided that they should be running all the time. An example of this if your antivirus software, which the manufacturer has enabled for good reason. You don’t have to allow all programs to remain on the auto start list. You can usually disable things like Skype, Nero and PowerDVD, as well as some productivity software. Removing these doesn’t usually have an adverse effect on your computer. Simply ask for “computer repair near me” or “IT support services near me” and our highly skilled technicians attend your home or office to help. Your technician will advise you what kinds of programs to leave in the auto start list and what to disable.
Computer Running Slow
This is usually caused by excessive programs running simultaneously. Removing some programs’ from the auto start list will usually show an improvement. It is also worth checking whether or not you have multiple antivirus programs. There should only ever be one antivirus or internet security. If you have bought internet security software containing firewall and antivirus – switch off the windows components.
