Maintain a properly running PC

properly running PCPersonal computers and laptops have become a part of everyday life for most of us these days. Most of us cannot imagine our lives without the PC. Be in a science laboratory or IT firm or even a regular classroom of students in a school or a college, PC’s are present everywhere. Most of or important files are saved in our computers which if lost may be of great harm to us. Hence it is important to maintain the PC such that these files are not damaged in any way.

Installing and updating antivirus programmes on a regular basis is one thing which is a-must for every computer. This ensures complete security and good health of the computer by preventing virus attacks from malicious malwares and spywares.

Also remember to save every file on one common disk location. Sometimes the computer internals crash and formatting is required. At this time only one disk is able to be saved and hence if all your important files are under one disk it is easily recoverable at times like this.

Always remember that dirt and dust are the computers enemies. Dust your computers everyday if possible. The CPU, Mouse, Monitor and Keyboard, being the main components should be dusted and wiped with a clean cloth every day. Never eat snacks or food or and drinks near your PC. Any little accident can cause damage. Professional help for internal cleaning every 3 months sounds like a good option too.
We are used to adding and deleting files off the computer. This causes the files to scatter on the hard drive making it difficult to search for. Defragmenting the hard drive once in a while will prevent this from happening. Clearing the recycle bin is also one thing that you must do in order to keep the computer working fast.
