Improving PC performance from Dorset

Posted by Chris on August 16th, 2011

Over the last couple of days Mike from Poundbury Systems in Dorchester, Dorset has been helping me with my PC ( & laptop & notebook ) performance .

We started out fixing a few problems but then got onto the subject of ” Bloatware ” ( unnecessary stuff that PC manufacturers put on to their PC’s that slows down the computer – especially boot up times – and takes up memory and disk space ) and then PC performance.

Mike was telling me that he spends a lot of time taking off ” Bloatware ” from computers before giving them to clients.

As this article says

Bloatware on Acer, Dell, Sony and HP computers just slows them down.

You would probably have assumed ( unless you are experienced in these matters ) that when you have a new computer it is going to be at peak performance and would go downhill from there because you have added more applications and probably acquired a few virus’s.

Actually to get to peak performance the Bloatware needs to be removed .

Mike and I spent some time ( after solving the main problems ) getting rid of applications that I didn’t really need.

Since then I have been going through the applications that I have and getting rid of any I don’t use myself ( although I feel safer going through them with Mike because sometimes you are not sure whether it’s ok to delete certain programs ).

Mike also advised me to take off any virus checking software that we were not using as one virus checker could contend with another – so we have done that aswell.

If you need some advice on improving PC performance give Mike a call at Poundbury systems:

Cisco phone systems are the future in Dorset

Posted by Chris on March 24th, 2010

Cisco phone systems provider Poundbury Systems ( Telephone – 01305 259849  ) is providing futuristic phone and video conferencing systems for Dorset based Small and Medium Businesses under the banner ” Futureline “.

Awareness of the installation of High Speed Fibre Optic networks in Dorset has been raised by eg and and Poundbury Systems is building on this awareness by offering local businesses low entry cost phone and video conferencing systems from Cisco Systems
( N.B. BT and Cisco are sponsors of the 2012 Olympics ).

Poundbury Systems are offering a package that will provide Small and Medium Businesses with a phone and web conferencing facility starting at

only £99 per month.

Cisco and Poundbury are thinking ahead to the time when Dorsets roads will be full of people heading to and from Weymouth and Portland and the Sailing Olympics and also thinking back to the recent winter months when snow prevented travel around Dorset.

For many reasons we need to ensure that we can conduct business irrespective of whether we are physically at a place or not. Of course there is always a need to meet people in person but many of the business discussions that we have can be conducted via email, phone, video conferencing and the Internet.

If we prepare for extreme road or weather conditions then this is a basis for a high speed, resilient, reliable communications system.

It is also the basis for a ” Digital Dorset ” which will encourage inward investment and migration.

Poundbury Systems phone and video conferencing systems is flexible and scalable – phones can be added incrementally – one or two at a time and at very low cost.
