Computer Maintenance

Daily steps to maintain computer health

If you want to keep your computer in tip-top shape, there are a few things you should do every day:

  1. Delete Cookies, Delete Files, Clear History. Internet Explorer creates temporary internet files. It is best to clear them out regularly. Load Internet Explorer. Select Internet Options from the Tools menu. On the General tab, choose Delete Cookies, Delete Files, and Clear History. If you have cookies or passwords that you like to keep, download the free utility CCleaner. It will make this cleanup easier.
  2. Take out the trash. Empty your Recycle Bin daily.
  3. Reboot your computer once a day. Use Start/Shut Down/Restart. Not all programs you run release memory and resources fully when you quit them. Restarting once a day will fix this.
  4. Update your virus definitions. If you don't use an anti-virus program, you need to get one (yes, on Macs too). Make sure that you turn on Automatic Live Update.
