If you live in Kansas City or any of the surrounding suburbs like Overland Park, Olathe or Leawood and want a faster computer, you are probably not sure who to trust.

This weekend was the opening of the college football season.  During the commercial breaks of a number of games, there were a lot of commercials stating that they can make your computer faster, boot quicker, and get rid of annoying pop ups and error messages.  All you have to do is download their software and run a test.  Sounds easy, right?  Then for a nominal fee, like $29.99, they promise to make your computer run like it was new.  If it were only that simple and easy.

If what you want is a faster computer, these types of programs do not work.  Period.  Many of the sites that offer customer reviews of such services use terms like ‘bait and switch’, scam and fraud.  Consumers have reported that their data was stolen, viruses were installed and new, more serious, problems occurred as a result.  They are left with anything but a faster computer.

At Prairie Star Technology, we have a 4 step process to a faster computer that involves cleaning, scanning, updating and optimizing.  We use a number of tools and have found that there is no one tool that can make for a faster computer.  While we prefer having the computer in our shop for 1-2 days, we can perform our premium tune-up through a remote connection.  Our satisfaction rate is very high and are almost always told that they have a much faster computer, almost like it was new.
