Join us for an insightful webinar on optimizing your PC’s performance and maximizing its value!

Many PCs come pre-configured with default settings that suit the average workload. However, we all know that none of us have an average workload. By delving into basic configuration and tuning, you can significantly enhance both the performance and lifespan of your workstation. Whether your PC has slowed down over time or you’re in the process of ordering a new one, there are simple steps you can take to achieve the best performance without breaking the bank.

Starting with essential tasks like updating drivers and patching your PC, we’ll guide you through the process of fine-tuning applications and optimizing data storage to unlock your workstation’s full potential. Neglecting these aspects can lead to decreased performance and even system crashes. We’ll discuss common pitfalls such as storing data, swap or paging files, and running applications and the operating system on a single disk or partition.

Moreover, participants will gain valuable insights into often overlooked areas such as BIOS and firmware upgrades. The BIOS plays a crucial role in how hardware components communicate with each other, yet it’s frequently overlooked during normal patching cycles. Even new PCs require thorough BIOS checks, which are often neglected.

During the webinar, we’ll cover BIOS and firmware upgrades, optimal partitioning, and disk configurations, as well as the ideal locations and settings for paging and swap space. Additionally, we’ll delve into application configuration basics and the best practices for storing your data. Understanding the importance of backing up both your data and application configurations is paramount to keeping your PC and your workflow uninterrupted. Losing licenses due to a PC crash or replacement is a common issue, so we’ll also discuss the importance of tracking application serial numbers and host identification for seamless license transfers.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to unleash the full potential of your PC and ensure smooth and efficient performance for your tasks. Register now to secure your spot!
