Computer Support – rubbish programs that claim to “speed up your PC” or “Clean out your registry

I always feel a little uneasy reading articles like this:

Touting “PC tune-up” services always makes me think of these rubbish programs that claim to “speed up your PC” or “Clean out your registry”. At best they often do nothing. At worst they can make things a lot slower by installing more unwanted dross. The anti-virus companies are also running scared. Modern operating systems are becoming more secure. They are also free anti-virus and anti-malware programs being supplied by Microsoft. The fact is the greatest threat to computer efficiency come from the uneducated user, installing unwanted utilities and allowing dodgy software to be installed thus bypassing anti-virus defenses.

User education and an holistic approach to computer support is really what is needed more than “quick fix” utilities.

Steven Vigeant rightly says “In most cases, no in-house IT department is enough to cover all four of the pillars of IT support: on-site, remote, end-user and emergency.”. He then rightly goes on to remind SMBs that “ad hoc” support may be better than any in-house team or even a fixed maintenance support contract. The important thing is to assess your needs, assign priorities and identify any gaps you may have in your existing plan. A good outsourced support company can fill these gaps in the most efficient way.
