Do you keep your computer running smoothly? Just like you must change the oil on the car there are certain things that one must do at least every month to make their computer run smoothly.
There are a lot of people out there that don’t have a clue about making their computer run smoothly. That’s why you see all the marketing out there about making your computer run faster and that’s why I wrote this post.
Is your computer slow? Go to XXX dot com to get a free analysis. You get your fee analysis and you find out there is a ton of stuff you need to do to make your computer faster so you pay for the service to fix everything for you.
If you do it yourself or pay one way or another, you have to do your computer maintenance or else your computer will eventually get slower and slower and crash! Many times I’ve heard about people complaining about their computer getting slower and slower. They get a friend over who knows about computers to help fix their computer.
What does the computer geek or friend do before he or she touches anything? He or she asks when was the last time you did your computer maintenance? Did you clear the cache, defragment, deleted cookies, etc? You look at him or her like a deer caught in the head lights. You have absolutely no idea what he or she is talking about.
It can be frustrating for someone who knows computers when you answer “I don’t know”. It’s like asking a car owner when was the last time he or she changed the oil. If the answer is “I don’t know” You should know for sure that car isn’t going to last very long at all.
Unlike in the past there are computer programs and windows versions today that will do all the maintenance for you automatically however you can take some time out to do things yourself as well if you don’t have the capability to automate it all.
It’s not as bad as you might think. If something takes a long time like a virus scan for example you can start the scan before you go to sleep and let it run overnight. When you awake if all is well, your scan will be done. I do a total virus scan once a month and so should you. I’d also like to let you know about this free software on the Internet that will let you keep you computer running smoothly. It’s called CCleaner. It-
- Cleans up temporary Internet files
- Recently typed URL’s
- Empties the recycle bin
- Empties old prefetch data
- Empties the cache
- Plus so much more
CCleaner also has a registry cleaner. I would recommend backing up your registry before using the cleaner. If you follow the prompts, the program will ask you if you want to back up your registry. It’s easy to do. The program will create a folder for you.
Be very careful what you delete. If you don’t know what it is leave it alone. I delete files that where created from uninstalling programs, you can’t go wrong with those. Speaking for myself, that’s all the program finds on my computer.
CCleaner is a great program to have to keep your computer running smoothly. It saves you so much time, instead of doing each individual thing separately yourself.
