keep ur computer healthy

So much as we don't want to admit it, when our computers are unhappy, we are unhappy. So, much like our own health, it is important to maintain a healthy computer. A healthy computer will run smoothly, and your personal data will be safe. It is important to give computers the attention that they deserve to be healthy and functional.

Make sure you have anti-virus software installed. Keep it up to date, and don't let it expire! Make sure that your computer is scanned weekly, and perform a manual scan whenever you think it is necessary. If you do not have a virus scan, AVG Free is a great, free virus scan software option.
If you have Microsoft Windows, complete all of your Windows updates on a regular basis. These may include important safety updates, so it is not wise to ignore them.
Install spyware prevention software. Unwanted ads can be troublesome to your patience and your computer's health. Keeping spyware off of your computer will help your computer maintain good health and run smoothly.
Things happen to computers, even if the computers are well taken care of. Because of this, make sure to back up your computer on a regular basis. Back up all important computer data so you will not lose it in the event of a computer crash.
Only install software that you trust. Random, unknown software can be filled with malicious viruses. When in doubt, do not download software. Or, research the software before downloading it to ensure your computer's health and safety.
If you have a Microsoft Windows computer, run your Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter every so often to keep your computer running quickly and smoothly. To get to these, go to your Start menu, then choose Accessories, followed by
System Tools. The above options will be in that drop down menu.
