While time consuming, sometimes the only solution is to whip out the Windows Disc and reinstall fresh.
Here is what makes our Windows Rebuild Different:
First we backup all of your data to our Linux Server- which is impervious to spyware and viruses.
Next we wipe the disc clean and run a full hardware diagnostic called “smartctl” to ensure the disc is worthy of the effort. Hard discs are very inexpensive, but if they fail you can be looking at another 10-12 hours to re-install and rebuild Windows. smartctl information example here.
After testing the integrity of your hardware we proceed to install Windows.
Once the main install is done we:
- Install all the newest drivers from the manufacturers website, to ensure stability.
- Update Windows itself (often requiring multiple reboots and lots of wait time).
- Turn off the Windows “get me” traps – such as netbios, file-print sharing, system restore…. etc
- Install (User provided) copy of Microsoft Office.
- Install FireFox, Thunderbird, Google Chrome.
- Install Adobe Reader, Flash Player, Java
- Install any specialized business programs you provide such as Accounting-Hotel-Legal etc.
- Test the machine thoroughly, remove all TMP files
- Install Anti Virus and Anti Spy-ware tools
- Let’s make sure you don’t have to do this again for years to come.
- Setup email clients, Import address books,bookmarks, Outlook-Thunderbird (where possible)
