Spring Clean Your PC

The days are brighter, the air is crisp, and the sun is warm.  Flowers are in bloom and the birds are chirping.  Yep, it’s spring and time to clean out all the cobwebs. And not just from your home.  Your PC needs some TLC this time of year, too.

 

Here’s what you can do:

Backup your files.

Check on your firewall: Control Panel>Administrative Tools. Make sure it is active.

Run antivirus scan weekly.

Consider running spyware and/or malware programs such as Spybot or Ad-aware.

Defrag: Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Advanced Tools

Empty the Recycling Bin, and look through files and programs to see what you can delete.

Run Updates.

Make sure there’s no dust in the fan.

Clean the monitor with a lint-free, ultra-soft cloth.
