Every computer user gets to a point where the system isn’t performing as well as it once did. In many cases, users are baffled by this because they don’t recall doing anything significant to their machines that might have altered its performance in such a negative way. But the truth is using the computer normally accumulates a lot of junk throughout the system and leads to the computer taking more time to complete tasks. A PC that has slowed down considerably is a clear sign that the unit must undergo some cleaning and tune-up.

Online software are questionable

There are many ways in which a computer tune-up can be done. There are a lot of solutions online that pose as free software which promises a fast and efficient computer through just a small scan. Malware scams aside, even the ones genuinely trying to help are most times unsuccessful because they are generic applications that don’t have any real impact on the PC.

A trip to a physical store might be required

Another solution would be to take the computer to a specialist. There are many dealers and IT stores which perform PC tune-up duties for a price. Unfortunately, that price tends to go quite high in most places. This puts users in a pretty uncomfortable position as they must choose between a slow computer and an empty wallet.

There is, however, another way which was only recently brought to light: PC users that use Windows can opt for a scheduled meeting in a Microsoft Store. Microsoft Stores are physical stores where Microsoft employees work to take care of user issues. The operation is free and any PC can receive a free check-up that will tune it back to efficiency.

Microsoft is offering free tune-ups

Those that are interested in using this Microsoft service need to be located near a Microsoft Store. There are a number of physical stores and finding one shouldn’t prove difficult. Once the nearest location is found, Microsoft Store employees should be able to provide specific details regarding everything that can be done.
