“There is a light bulb in Livermore, California - the Centennial
Light. The light bulb has been burning for more than 100 years.
(You can visit the light bulb at http://www.centennialbulb.org.)
“The Centennial light bulb is an exception. Light bulbs are not expected to illuminate for more than a given amount of time, often less than a year.
If you’ve ever bought a light bulb, you know and accept this fact. You don’t operate under the assumption that just because some bulb in Livermore has
glowed happily for more than a century, you will see the same performance from the light bulbs you buy at Home Depot. That would be ridiculous. Even so,
most people expect their computers to behave flawlessly from the moment they come out of the box to some mythical PC death date several years hence.
“The ugly truth: There is no such thing as, nor will there ever be, any computer that runs flawlessly for any length of time.
No, only the Centennial Light owns the market on electronic longevity. Computers? They crash. That’s reality.”

|Is your computer slow?
Many factors contribute to a computer’s overall speed. Often, this is
caused by things like spyware, a fragmented hard drive, unnecessary startup
applications, and even a damaged system registry. We can
tune up your
computer so that it runs at least as fast as it used to again, and maybe
Does your computer do “funny things” that it shouldn’t? If you’ve owned your computer for a while, chances are you may get error messages when you turn on the computer, usually referring to software you used to use but have since uninstalled. Other “funny things” can be equally frustrating when you’re trying to get something done on your computer. We can fix these problems for you, and often speed up your computer in the process.
Do advertisement windows pop-up frequently when you try to visit your favorite websites? Most people think that having virus protection on their computer is all that they need to stay safe and avoid unwanted problems that can come from the Internet. What they don’t know is that, while their virus detection software keeps dangerous viruses away, it doesn’t keep advertisements, known as spyware, away. Spyware is harmless but annoying and, even if you have a pop-up blocker, spyware can slow your computer down dramatically. And if you don’t regularly run spyware detection software, you likely have a lot of it on your computer. We can help you remove all spyware from your computer and recommend software that can keep it from returning.
When you go to certain websites, do you see errors telling you that the computer can’t display the content because something isn’t installed? Many popular websites today use web tools like Java, Flash, Adobe Reader, and QuickTime. In order to see the content, you need to first have these tools installed on your computer. We can install them for you.
