Keep your PC Healthy

Run anti-virus software regularly to ensure that your PC's performance and security has not been compromised by a virus infection. Keep up to date with virus definitions.

Run anti-spyware regularly as an accumulation of spyware can cause the PC to run sluggishly (or not at all!) Keep up to date with spyware definitions.

Keep Windows up to date by installing updates automatically or at least regularly.

Remove unwanted programs as they will only take up space you could use for something else. Some programs are not compatible with others, so minimize this risk by only keeping what you use. Remove expired shareware, old software, programs you no longer use or have replaced with a different version.

Email in the Deleted Items folder and even the Sent Items can take up a lot of unnecessary space. Empty these folders regularly. Keep copies of important Emails in designated folders or archive to CD.

Music & video files can be large. Consider burning to CD or DVD to clear up the hard drive. Look out for duplicates!

Disk maintenance should be carried out every 2-3 months by emptying out temporary files and folders, the recycle bins, and by "defragging" the hard drive.

Back up your data regularly and keep a copy of critical data off site. This way you should never be disadvantaged if something unfortunate happens, or you accidentally remove something important.
