Why your new PC can be slow out of the box

Did you know that when you buy a new PC, the manufacturers have loaded it with ‘free’ apps they think you might use?

Actually, they don’t really care whether you use them or not. They’re paid to preinstall them. We call this bloatware.

And it means your new device starts its life more cluttered than it needs to be.

With slower processing speeds. And an increased chance of being hacked if the software gets out of date.

Removing bloatware can make your new laptop up to 40% faster. That’s according to Microsoft’s own tests.

Whether your device is old or new, take a look at what apps are installed. And delete anything you don’t regularly use.

While you’re there, for security purposes, look for anything unfamiliar. Or software you don’t remember installing.

If you’re worried you’ll delete something important, or aren’t sure where to start, give us a call and we can help.
