To keep your computer in good working order, you will need to regularly service it. This doesn’t mean spending a fortune for someone else to do it. With these XX steps, you can service your computer at home to make it faster, safer, and feel just like new.
Computer Maintenance Steps:
Start with a Virus Check
You should already have an antivirus software on your computer. If you don’t, install one now and run a scan immediately. Even Macs get viruses. Even if you do have one, make sure you run a scan regularly as some viruses slip through the cracks.
Clear Out the Automatic Startup Software
Some software automatically starts when you boot up your computer. This slows down the computer start up with software that you likely don’t even remember having! You can quickly stop all this by using the “System Configuration” on your Windows PC. Go into “Run,” and type “WIN + R” followed by “msconfig.” In the start up window, you’ll see all the software that automatically starts when you boot up your computer. Just uncheck the ones that you know you really don’t need.
Use the Disk Cleanup
The Disk Cleanup will help you delete cache files, temporary files, and other junk files clogging up your space. Go to “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories” and then “System Tools.” If you have Windows 8 and older, you can hit the “WIN” key and then type in “Disk Cleanup” to get a section that allows you to delete unnecessary files.
With the three top tips, your computer will be optimised and like new. It will run faster and smoother. There’s definitely no need to pay a technician to do it and you don’t need to buy a new PC.
