Welcome to Tune Up your Computer - http://lamission.edu/online


There are a number of things to do to help your computer run faster.


First set up your computer settings


1. Browser - pick Firefox 2 - the best browser on the internet (much better than Internet Explorer) - see http://mozilla.com to download it.


2. Clean up your files on your computer - with Tune up Utilities 2010 - free - download it at  http://www.tune-up.com/products/tuneup-utilities/ - once downloaded then run the clean up on "start up manager" and make sure you have a minimum of programs open and running when you start up the computer. This will speed up your computer a lot.


3. Spyware - if you get any email you probably have ads running on your computer. download the free program "ad-aware" - download it at http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10045910.html


4. Download and install - free anti-virus - http://free.avg.com/



5. More Memory for your Computer - If you computer is still slow after you have done the above, you may want to get more memory for your computer. Contact the local PC Club - at http://pcclub.com and take your computer in for an memory upgrade, or for them to check out your computer and why it is so slow. Hope the above helps. Also make sure the settings on you computer are correct, see below information and instructions.
