Dell Command | Update

Dell_Logo-150pxFor Dell Optiplex, Latitude and Precision Owners only:

Many people get themselves into trouble by downloading programs that update drivers, but if you own a Dell Optiplex, Latitude or Precision computer, there is an excellent option from Dell that will give you the “straight scoop” on driver, firmware, and bios and updates.  Dell Command | Update is that program, and is the recommended and safe way to get automatic updates straight from Dell for your new computer.

We repair many computers that run slowly and have many marketing pop-ups.  The problem often begins when the computer owner installs a program that offers to update the drivers and “optimize” the computer’s performance.  But in reality, these programs are installing malware, ad-ware, and slowing your computer down.  Don’t fall prey to these schemes.  Get Dell Command | Update.

And don’t be put off by the references to “Enterprise” on the Dell page that describes this excellent utility.   It works on any Optiplex, Latitude or Precision computer, and isn’t for businesses only.  This is another reason why Iowa PC Services recommends these models first, even for home use.  The support from Dell is top-notch, the performance is excellent, and the long-term durability will give anyone the assurance that they are investing their computing dollar in a wise way.
