removes junk files
Junk files Your Hard drive is not always the tidiest place on earth, filled up with junk files left by the operating system and many programs. Removing these from time to time can improve performance.
Defragmentation – When your hard drive records new data it doesn’t do it tidily, it can record one bit of information here and another way over there. Defragmentation takes these wayward fragments and bunches them up together so your computer will have easier time finding the stuff you want it to find. And it helps performance too.
Substantially reduces PC crashes and freezes
Crashes and freezes are caused by viruses, spyware, registry errors, faulty unpatched programs. Fixico is all about smooth performance, discreetly taking care of all of these.
Centralized Software Distribution
Install common software to any or all computers in your service with a single click!
Data Loss Protection – Restrict external drives
Worried about data theft? No worries – with one click, no one will be able to copy anything off of your computer without you saying so. Especially useful for businesses.
Increase PC stability and protect your privacy
PC stability, among other things, depends on a strong AVS solution, updated programs and a clean registry. Using several service type programs in conjuction can hurt stability (especially more than one Antivirus) and Fixico deals with this by acting in their place.
