PC Wizard!

I popped round to Joan's (a friend of David and Val's) to sort out some niggles with her laptop.

  • Sluggish performance
  • Error message on start-up
  • Google toolbar auto-fill option was auto-filling!
  • Outlook Express pointing to an out-of-date email account

There was nothing seriously wrong with the machine although it was suffering (performance-wise) with a lack of RAM (only 512 Mb).

I ran a number of diagnostics and generally cleaned up the machine. I wouldn't say it was much faster, but it's certainly a lot tidier.

I left Joan to work-through the 900+ queries that Tune-up Utilities 2009 had identified.
