Does your PC take a long time to start up? Does it freeze when you have multiple windows or programs open? You might think it’s time to buy a new computer, but that might not be the case. All it may need is a little tune-up.
This is where Norton by Symantec comes in. The company recently launched Norton Premium Services, which allows you to connect with Norton experts, who will talk to you one-on-one, listen to the problems you’re encountering, and then directly access your computer via the Internet so they can run diagnostic tests and fix the problems while you sit back and watch.
They offer a variety of services:
- Green PC Service – Save electricity by helping reduce your PC’s power consumption
- Spyware & Virus Removal Service – Detect and eliminate dangerous threats, and learn how to stay safe online.
- Expert Installation Service – Custom Norton software installed, according to your needs.
- PC Tune-Up Service – Boost your PC’s speed, performance, and overall operation.
- Jump Start Service – Save time and money with a combination of two services – Expert Installation and PC Tune Up.
All you need is an Internet connection, Internet Explorer, and a PC running Windows. These services aren’t cheap, but are certainly much less expensive than hiring a stranger to come to your house to check your computer out. You don’t have to haul it anywhere to fix it, either. It’s all done from the comfort of your own home.
Mom Central gave me the opportunity to try the Norton PC Tune-Up. I don’t have a PC, so I chose to give it to my brother as an early Christmas present. I’ve used his computer, and trust me, it needed the tune-up.
What the PC Tune-Up does:
- A full scan to evaluate issues affecting performance.
- Fine-tune key areas to improve speed and stability.
- Free up memory space.
- Assess security issues.
- Recommend steps to ensure top performance.
All you do is call a 1-800 number, talk to a representative, and in a half-hour (maybe more), your computer will be running like new. It really is a no-hassle, convenient way to give your computer much-needed maintenance. Your car gets a periodic oil change, right? So should your computer!
I’d definitely recommend the PC Tune-Up to someone who doesn’t know much about computers. You’ll learn a lot over the phone from the Norton expert. These services are available 24/7, so not having the time during the day is no excuse. The solution to your PC problems may only be a phone call away!
Actually, for you – it may only be a comment away! Enter to win your own Norton PC Tune-Up service. I have 3 to give away. Use it for yourself or give it as a gift – it’s a $69.99 value! All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me a problem you have with your PC.
Please leave a valid email address or blog URL in your comment. This contests ends at 11:59 pm EST on December 9th, 2008. Winners will be chosen via random.org, and have 48 hours to claim their prize.

My step-daughter’s computer needs this so bad. She has got the computer back from her mom’s and ever since it hardly runs. It takes her forever to even log into the internet :(. She surely could use this.

Okay, the problem is actually with my parent’s PC who I’m trying to win this for. The thing has so much JUNK on it and every time I go to visit I spend hours trying to help clean it up. It’s slower than molasses in January and it needs a tune up badly!!

I have too much stuff on my computer and it is slow… but honestly I would give it to my dad. He works from his Laptop and it is unbelieveably slow. He is sitting there with clients and it takes him forever just to pull something up! He could really use this!

I definately need this–my computer takes forever to start up. It also freezes all of the time and today it went beserk and opened up a ton of windows before it froze.

My computer could really use a tune up.
Unfortunately, my kids’ new computer just ended up with a virus which I can’t figure out. So this program might be very helpful with that. I sure hope I win! Thank you for offering this great giveaway! rhonda (At) acedesignstudio (dot) com
