Attention Windows 10 Users!

Have you noticed your computer has been running slower lately?  We know of several techniques to help your PC return back to normal speed.

Modify the Power Settings

One of the simplest ways is to disable your Power Saver Plan.  This plan is designed to save energy by reducing you computer’s overall performance.  If you are using a desktop PC, there really isn’t any reason to use a Power Saver.  We recommend changing to High Performance Mode to deliver a huge performance boost.

If your computer is running slow or giving you problems, please give us a call (252) 240-2722 (CPCC).  We can help.

Windows 10 Spring Update

The Windows 10 “Spring Update” is out, also called update 1803. As usual Microsoft takes one step forward and 2 steps back, causing headaches for some users. We have seen reports of multiple MS Surface systems with broken kb/m connectivity, laptop batteries no longer charging, and some systems having problems loading the desktop after upgrade.

What can you do? Windows Pro users can defer security updates for 35 days and Feature updates (like 1803) for a year. But Home users don’t get that option. If your Windows 10 experience is ruined with a feature update, call us at (252) 240-2722 and we can help.

Merry Christmas!

CPCC asked Santa for a new sign for the office and guess what happened on Saturday?!
