Summer is a time retailers want to get your attention with sales, and often consumers use them as opportunities to replace items they need: ripped jeans, old grills, even computers. But before you buy a new computer, know that EarthLink has a service that can help your computer function “like new” again. You may not actually need to replace it!
With extended use (say, when you’ve had a computer for a year or more), your computer’s hard disk can begin to fragment. Put simply, “fragmentation” means the data your computer needs to access is not being stored on its hard disk as efficiently as it should be. Fragmentation leaves bits of unused space between the spots being used, meaning that your computer could be functioning slowly when it doesn’t need to (because it’s acting like it has more data stored than it does, thanks to those spaces).
“Defragmenting” can help repair these spaces by reorganizing your data into the most efficient configuration your disk allows. After defragmentation, most computers run noticeably faster, so if sluggish speed is what has you “needing” a new computer, let EarthLink help you first!
EarthLink’s PC Fine Tune, in addition to defragmenting, also fixes registry errors, improves start-up performance, and removes unnecessary files to give you more free space.
