The computer experience is as unique as there are unique people. We create our own desktop backgrounds, use different browsers, organize our files (if organized at all) in different ways, a lot of personalization and customization. We also surf the web in different ways, one person uses google, another bing and another yahoo. One person uses hotmail another yahoo. How we use our computers is as unique as our own personalities.
That said, buying a computer is also just as personal, at McDonalds Computer Service we want to know what you are doing so we can figure out which computer is right for you. Do you need discrete graphics? Large drive capacity? Maybe you need a solid state drive or more than 4GB of ram. Knowing what you do with your computer tells us what you need in your computer.
So when it comes time to make that leap from WIndows 7 to Windows 10, or you just want to upgrade to an entire new system, give us a call or stop by for a visit.

In todays working world, we use computers. In fact the majority of us use computers on a daily basis and for most of the day. Here are some tips to help reduce your physical strain by the end of your work day.

Blink. As we work through our day, staring at a computer screen medical professionals are finding that we blink less, there by not keeping our eyes moist enough. Blinking helps to moisten the eye. Dry eyes lead to rubbing and other none healthy behaviors. So Blink!

Take a second to look away. We strain our eyes staring at the same focal point for long periods as well. Look up, look out the window, look at something else, if only for a moment to help relax your eyes.

Adjust the brightness on your monitor, too bright is just as bad as too dark. Ensure you have proper lighting.

Adjust your seating so that your eyes are mid level on the screen. Craning your neck up or down so you can see what's there is going to create back and neck muscle strain.

Lastly, move. Get up and move, this will help with increased blood flow as well as change a sedentary habit.

At McDonalds Computer Service, we aren't just here to help you get your tech in good working order, we want to see you stay in good working order as well.

Why does my computer keep getting slower and slower?

This is the biggest question people ask themselves. The most popular answer is "It's getting old and worn out." is not the correct answer. Computer parts when they fail do make a a computer slower, but its more of a sudden slowness not a gradual one. The next popular answer is "Because of all these Windows Updates". While this does make your computer slower over time, we are talking years not weeks or months. So what's really causing your computer to slow down?

Generally it's caused by two things, and often its a combination of both. An internet security package (pick a brand any brand) and or lack of routine maintenance. Most Internet Security packages are an overlay of the operating system basically making it work harder and are at high risk of breaking and causing Windows itself to break. We always recommend just using an AV Softare package such as Panda or Microsoft Security Essentials. The other issue is a lack of routine maintenance.

We change the oil in our cars to make sure they perform well. Keep them lubricated so the parts move easily. Maintenance on the computer does something similar, it removes the "gunk" under the hood that accumlates as we use our computers and ensures that all the parts of the OS are functioning properly. Think of it as getting all the fluids checked on your car when you get the oil changed.

At McDonalds Computer Service we recommend regular tune ups, done annually, to ensure that your computer continues to run in tip top shape. Cant' having it slow down as your chasing some alien battle crusier in your game or possibly pausing your show while your watching Netflix so it can buffer. Bring your computer in for a tune up at McDonalds Computer Service and get back out there protecting the universe!
