7 pm: Get the cob webs out of your computer…! Just Drop-In
Feeling helpless when your computer is sluggish?  Do you feel even worse when you learn that you must have someone else come in and fix it for you…often at considerable cost?  There's good news!  You can fix most of these problems yourself.  Learn how in this class.  We call it “getting the cob webs out”.  You'll learn there's software available, most of which is free, to clear out those cob webs.  You'll learn that after the first time, applying this software, most issues with poor performance, improve significantly. Do it yourself, with confidence. It's easier than you may think. 

You only need to learn 4 things in this class:

1. Understand what's happening in your PC and why.

2. Where to find free or inexpensive software online to address it.

3. How to apply the software - successfully and safely. 

4. How to maintain your computer to keep it running at top performance.
