Regular maintenance for your computer

Everyday computer maintenance is very important for keeping your computer running well. Many precautions should always be taken such as adding anti-virus software or checking out websites before you download items. Here are some tips to keep your computer up to speed.

Every day:

  • Make sure you have a software like an antivirus or antispyware running 
  • Delete old emails and spam emails
  • Power down your computer when done using it for the day
  • Be cautious of what you download. Only download from credible sources

Every week:

  • Back up any important files to any kind of external memory
  • Run a full system scan of your computer
  • Empty the recycle bin to free up space

Every month: 

  • Defragment the hard drive
  • Evaluate the hard disk. Errors can cause problems down the road
  • Look at updates and install newer software. Make sure to keep your antivirus up to date
  • Get rid of old and unused programs - they just take up space

Every year:

  • Clean dust out of your computer with compressed air and q-tips. See the blog for tips on how to do this. 

Follow these tips and your computer should stay in good shape for a long time.
