Slow computer speeds are a drag.

Fortunately, a Scottsbluff company has debuted new software designed to boost computer speed and nip errors in the bud.

Bytes Computer and Network Solutions recently integrated complete system diagnostics into their PC Complete Care service for home computer users.

This comprehensive reliability service works to ease the hassle of PC maintenance and aims to provide home computer users with a fast and reliable home computer system.

Todd Lewis, vice president of Bytes Computer and Network Solutions, said most Bytes customers do not have the time or know-how to perform necessary computer maintenance. Misused Windows updates, virus protection and computer defragmenting bog down computer speed and put the machine at risk of accumulating critical errors.

“Everything our program does is something users can do at home,” Lewis said. “But just to weekly update anti-virus and malware along with software patches could take one-and-a-half to two hours ever week, conservatively speaking.”

This is where PC Complete Care comes in, Lewis said. The program takes steps to routinely bring the machine up to par with Bytes technician health standards, making the computer’s operating system run cleaner and faster.

“Once you install the program on your machine, it begins removing anything that conflicts with the user’s security software,” Clark said.

No matter the computer’s brand or operating system, the program automatically performs ongoing diagnostics to reign in frequent system errors. The software also monitors a computer’s event logs in order to catch critical errors as they occur.

These scans can catch any currently existing infections, Lewis said. When an issue is found, the program notifies a Bytes Computer technician to fix the problem. Catching the errors early help computer users save precious data, time and money.

“If your hard drive is about to fail, the program will point it out and notify one of our technicians,” Lewis said “You’ll get a call and we’ll make sure you  are aware and have time to do something about it.”

One-year service packages for PC Complete Care start at $219. Monthly plans are also available and start at $20.

Established in 2001, Bytes Computer and Network Solutions focuses its services on on-site and remote computer help support, technology, custom applications, Web design and cloud hosting for businesses and individuals in Scottsbluff and nationwide.

“We want to take the worry out of using the Internet,” Lewis said. “People shouldn’t be afraid to use a tool they’ve paid for.”
