There’s nothing wrong with blowing off some steam by checking out the hot ladies of a cam site, which is why cam sites are so popular. However, nothing’s going to kill your raging boner more than having computer issues in the middle of a steamy private session with your favorite cam girl (especially being as you paid for said session). If you’re operating an older computer or you’re not really all that technologically inclined, computer problems are a distinct possibility. In order to ensure that you’re not wasting your money or your erection, it’s a good idea to learn how to be able to troubleshoot quickly so you can go back to enjoying your show.
Check the Programs Running
If you’re computer is running super slow and the video feed keeps freezing, it could be a couple of issues. The trick is to narrow down your options until you find the real problem. The first thing you need to do is check to see what programs are running in the background. Some programs, like Skype or Dropbox, can really tax the system, leading to a bogged down performance. Shutting them down or disconnecting them from the Internet can speed things up again.
Check Background Downloads
Any kind of download that’s running in the background can lock your computer up, particularly if it lacks the resources to handle multitasking like this. Before you start a private session with your fave cam model, it’s a good idea for you to stop or pause any downloads. This will ensure that your computer is running as smoothly as it can which will mean that your private show should go off without a hitch.
Run a Quick Antivirus Scan
If your computer starts acting weird in the middle of a private session, you should run a quick antivirus scan. This will waste a bit of your time with the cam model, but it’s also a very quick way of telling whether your problem is a big one or a little one. If the scan comes up clean you know it’s not adware/malware/viruses. If it doesn’t come up clean, it might be a good idea to cancel the show, ask for a refund, and get started taking care of the issue. Leaving malware or viruses alone for too long can lead to irreparable computer damage.
Check Your Connection
A crappy cam show could just mean that your Internet connection is slow. The first thing you should do, obviously, is check to make sure that no downloads are sapping your connection speed. After that, if you still need to speed things up, wire your computer directly into the router for the purest connection possible. This doesn’t take long to do provided you have the cables. You could also check to see that nobody else in your house is using a wireless device or another computer. Of course, telling them why you need them to stop what they’re doing could be a challenge, so you’re going to have to get creative with your excuses.
