PCKEY CALLOUT

Computer Repair Services

Free Computer Clean Up

 

Looking for FREE COMPUTER CLEAN UP then you are in right place. Sometimes doesn’t it feel like with the amount of time it takes to boot up your computer you could tidy the house? Have you found that your internet browser is too full of a lot of taskbars and you have no space to browse the internet? If you find out that your computer is getting slower every day then it might be time for you use some tips to get your computer clean and up and running like it was when you first got it. A great bonus is that all the tips below are free computer clean up so it won’t cost you a penny.

 

1) Get rid of all the viruses

 

Starting off by getting rid of all viruses and spyware you may have in your computer can help your computer speed up a ton. Having viruses on your computer may not always break it down but it will defiantly slow it down. Using Microsoft Windows Defender Antivirus is a good software to use as it is an easy all in one solution which will keep your computer healthy ad working in top shape.

 

2) Update your Operating System 7 8 10

 

When you have windows 7 8 10, it issues updates all the time. Doing the updates can help mend any holes in the software and close chances of viruses and spyware damaging your system as well as making your windows system run better. If you are running Windows 10, left click the notifications square which is on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Click on settings then update and security, then check for window 10 updates. After the updates have downloaded make sure you restart your computer so they can be properly applied.

 

3) Purge Bloatware

 

When you buy a computer which is much cheaper it normally comes with a lot of junk programs which you really don’t need. You need to get rid of it and keep the space for everything you want. As well as conserving the space for yourself, the junk is also slowing down your system as the softwares run in the background.

 

To start off you need to right click on the start menu and choose settings. Click on the Apps and from there you will see a list of programs which are on your computer.  You can sort the list out by either Name, size or installation date. If you decide to sort by size it means you can see what program is taking up the most space on your hard drive.  If there are any programs on there which you don’t want anymore you just need to left click and click on uninstall.

 

4) Speed up your start up

 

Microsoft configuration is something which is built in your windows system. Using this tool can help stop programs from starting automatically when your computer boots up.

 

To start this tool you should go to the start button and go to settings. Type ‘msconfig’ into the search setting bar.  Once you do this the task manager windows will open up with a list of programs which run at startup. You can then go through the list and see which programs bring a high impact on your startup. You can then choose to disable some if you don’t need to use them all the time.

 

5) Repair the registry

 

Your operating systems registry is just like the hard drives table of contents. If you have some incorrect entries it can take your hard drive longer to find all the pieces of data that it needs to launch and run programs. Free applications are available which are easy to install and can fix all registry errors and speed your operating systems performance.

 

 

6) Clear out the cookies

 

Your computer can definitely speed up if you delete all of your old internet cookies. Each time you go to a website, its keeps a part of itself or the program on your operating system. This means the next time you open up that website it will open much faster. However, it is very rare that we go to the same website and see the same pages time and time again. So instead the process of going through loads of MBs of temporary internet files will make website load much slower.

 

To delete the cookies, if you are using Google Chrome Browser lick the symbol “…” which is on the upper right-hand corner of your browser window and then click on settings. Go down and choose “Advanced”, underneath the privacy and security click on clear browsing data. You can clear out stuff you don’t want to be stored or tracked. You need to look through all of it and delete what you can.

 

7) Clean your computer

 

Your computer comes with a fan which brings in air to cool the CPU and components. If this fan becomes clogged with dust, pet hair or anything else the system can overheat which causes it run more slowly and then eventually break down. With your computer take a can of air and take your computer outside. Open the whole case but don’t blow it too close to the components and remove the dust from the case. If you have a laptop you can only get to the keyboard and the vents so make sure you give them a good work in with your canned air.

 

8) Get rid of internet explorer

 

There are many alternative browsers which you can use to access the internet. Google Chrome is one of the fastest options which doesn’t compromise compatibility. Internet Explorer is one of the slowest as well as most incompatible browsers, so get rid of it for something better.

 

9) If all fails

 

A guaranteed way to speed up your computer is to do a complete re-install. To make sure your reinstall is safe you will need to back up your data, format your hard drive and reinstall windows 7 8 10. You need to remember once you do this you need to reinstall all of your software which includes Office. These all solutions are free computer clean up. You need to also install your Anti-virus software before you start browsing again. Being on a regular maintenance will be good for your computer.

Someone Use Your Computer

How To Let Someone Use Your Computer Without Accessing Your Stuff

Someone Use Your Computer

By giving someone access to your computer, they can get to your saved passwords, email accounts and all files as well as more. Instead of worrying or getting anxious when giving someone your computer use your operating systems guest account feature.

 

Guest’s accounts are on all desktop operating systems including windows, Mac to chrome and other distributions. On windows the guest account is not enabled through default, so you have to go and search for it.

 

Why Use Guest Account

 

Using a guest account is a good idea especially for temporary guest users as they are only going to use it from time to time. The guest account which comes in the desktop gives your guest limited access which makes you at ease to leave them to it on your computer and let them do what they wish. They are able to browse the web without getting access to all your passwords, documents, emails, history and everything else.

 

With guests account you are not able to install software, connect hardware devices, change system settings or even make a password for the guest account.  The most harm guest accounts can do is shut down your computer.

 

A guest account allows the person to browse the web and use all the normal applications. This enables the person to feel like they are getting full access to the computer without you getting worried about personal information getting leaked.  Let’s say someone you trust fully wants to use your computer so because you trust them they won’t need to use a guest account. However, they go on and want to check their email, once on the web they try and sign in but your already signed in. They then have access to your emails because you forgot to sign out and now they need to.  You can avoid all of this by using a guest account.

 

How To Enable Guest Accounts

 

Windows:

Enabling the guest account in windows 7 and 8 is different than enabling it for windows 10. With windows 7 and 8 enabling the guest account is straight forward. All you need to do is from the desktop; go on the start menu and type “user accounts”, click this and then click “Manage another account”. Click “Guest.” If the guest account feature is disabled, click “Turn On.”

 

However, with windows 10 this feature is hidden. The reason for this is because Microsoft would like you to have data security and also because they want everyone to use official Microsoft accounts. By enabling the guest account requires admin access. Once enabled it will appear on a separate user account in the bottom left corner of the screen, anyone is able to log into this account after booting your computer. You are able to log out of your user account or use switch user to stay logged in and keep your programs open and account locked while the other person is using the guest account on your computer.

 

Once they have finished they can log out of the guest account. Remember their browsing history and logged in websites or any files or documents they may have will be accessible to any other person who uses the guest account.   Any guest user should log out of any websites they use or use the private browsing feature on the web within the guest account.

 

Mac:

On a Mac you can log in as a guest user by selecting Guest User account on the login screen. If this is not available you need to enable this.  You can do this by going on to the desktop, clicking on the system preference icon in the dock. Then click “users and groups”.  Once on this click onto the lock icon I the lower left corner, enter your admin password to access advanced functions.  Then click guest user and click on the check box which is next to “Allow guest users to connect to share folders”. Then log out and now you’ll have a guest user account accessible without a password. Once your guest logs out, all their data will be erased (unlike Windows).

Computer and laptops need special attention and care so they are able to function to their best. Mostly people always buy a new computer and never take good care of it also they never thought of computer maintenance. Taking good care of it doesn’t just mean cleaning the outer surface when it gets dusty. Taking proper care means making sure the inner and outer system are working effectively so they need to be examined.

 

The inner part of a computer consists of the software and anything related to software. The outer system consists of all the devices connected to the operating system. All the extra attachments such as cables, keyboard, scanner and printer which are all attached to the inner system are included. All these need to have extra attention and good  computer maintenance.

 

Computers Maintenance

Computers need to be maintained regularly from time to time. The system should be kept in a good state so it can perform well at all times and under all conditions. The first step towards this is to make sure your cables are kept in good condition and avoid any tangles and mess with other cables overlapping them. The less overlapping, the easier it is to make sure the cables stay in good condition.

 

After this you need to take time to clean your computer on a regular basis through either using a hand vacuum or duster to get rid of all the dust. Once the outside is looking good, you need to get working on keep the operating system in good condition.

 

A fully functional operating system is one which is always updated and is virus free and computer maintenance is done every month. The operating system needs to be updated regularly so all functions are working on top form.

Virus Attached To Email What To Do

Virus Attached To Email What To Do

Having an email address for a long time which can incur many spam emails and virus attached to emails. The longer you have had your email address the quicker you realise not all of these spam emails are harmless. Email addresses are a great target for spam but also great targets for hackers as a way to send viruses and get all your personal information.

 

The popular way of spreading viruses via email is through infected attachments. They can do anything from installing new toolbars and pop-ups to deleting system files. Infected attachments can either macro viruses attached to emails that are embedded into software applications such as MS Word or executable programs.

Common Type Of Virus

The more common type of virus attachments to emails are executable files. These attachments come in file forms such as .com, .zip, .exe and many more. If the email address is an unusual one and it asks you to download file, think twice before going though with the download.

 

Infected emails can also give you a virus through making you click on a link to a website. Once on the website, you may be given a file virus through forced download. The most effective way to handle this is not to click any links that come from email addresses you don’t recognize. Further if you click on an infected link, you will need to have an antivirus program up and running.

 

Executable programs are more of a problem than macro viruses as with macro viruses MS word can repair the problem through their updates. Some antivirus programmes can detect and attack threats to MS word but it doesn’t mean they are safe just because they are updated.

 

Cyber criminals are experienced to embed VBA code to a word document. This can cause the program to execute the executable file without warning. This is more harmful if you have an old version on MS software. Just be careful with any MS word documents you are downloading.

 

Some viruses have been specifically developed to spread via emails which mean you have to be very careful of any unusual emails you come across. If you feel uneasy about an email don’t open it. If it seems unusual and comes with an attachment, you can always save it and scan it through your antivirus software first to be safe. Once clear you can download the attachment.

 

Having these attachments viruses can corrupt your system and once downloaded can be difficult to remove. If you are in this situation you need PcKey Callout to get you system up and running in top form and virus free.

Free Malware Removal Form Your Computer

Free Malware Removal

 

The warning signs that your computer may be malware infested include your computer being slower than usual, suddenly loads of pop ups are appearing as well as other abnormal issues. Either you have free malware removal or Paid Malware removal.

 

All these signs show that your computer maybe infested with spyware even if you have got an antivirus installed. It could also either be a hardware issue but it is a good idea to know malware/viruses isn’t the cause of your computer acting up.  Below is a guide on what to do:

 

Safe Mode

The first thing you need to do is disconnect your computer from the internet and until our computer has be cleaned do not start it up again. This will stop malware from spreading any personal data they may have of yours.

 

If you think the problem with your computer is a malware infection you need to boot your computer to Safe mode. This will have the minimum programs and services required. If any malware wants to enter your computer when you turn it one, going on safe mode will prevent it. By entering into safe mode, it will make removing the infected files easier because they are not being used.

 

You might also realise that on safe mode your computer runs much faster. This is a sign that our computer does have a malware infection or you might just have a solid-state drive which makes it fast either way.

 

Delete Temporary Files

Once in safe mode you should delete any temporary files before running a virus scan. This will make the time of running the virus scan quicker as well as free up disk space and get rid of some malware. Just enter disk clean up in the search bar of your windows 10 and start running it.

 

Download Malware Scanners

Now the malware scanner is ready to do its job and normally running a scanner is enough to remove standard infections. If you had antivirus program running on your computer you still should use a different scanner for this check because your antivirus software did not detect the malware. No antivirus software can detect all the millions of types of malware and viruses 100% of the time.

 

Run A Scan With Malware Bytes

Once you have downloaded malware bytes (free malware removal), run the setup and follow instructions to install the program. Once the software has downloaded, open the program it will automatically activate a trial of the paid version. By default in 14 days it will go to the standard free version.

 

To run a scan you need to switch from the dashboard tab to the scan tab, keep the option set to threat scan and click start scan. Before the scan is run it will check for updates but still make sure this happens before you go ahead with the scan. The threat scan usually finds all the infections right away and it will take anywhere between 5 to 20 minutes but if you do a custom scan it could take anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

 

If you find that malware bytes has vanished once the scan starts and it won’t reopen then you probably have a root kit or a different type of serious infection which gets rid of scanners so they can’t remove the infection.

 

When your scan is finish, malware bytes will show you the results. If the scan has given you results that everything is clear but you still think there is a virus run a custom scan. If the scan does find infections it will say what they are when the scan has finished. You can then click the remove button which will get rid of some infections. It may even request to restart your computer so the removal can happen which you should follow.

 

If you are still finding problems after the infections have been found and removed, then you might need to contact a professional like PcKey Callout where an experienced engineer will come and remove all viruses from your computer.
