Ways to take care of your PC

 

Keep Windows Current

When you installed Windows, it gave you the option to enable automatic updates that keep your computer loaded with the latest Windows bug fixes, security patches and enhancements. If automatic updating is turned off, you can turn it on by clicking “Settings” followed by “Change PC Settings.” After you click “Update and Recovery,” click “Choose How Updates Get Installed” and select the update option that best suits you.

 

Secure Computer

Surprisingly, there is no guarantee that anti-virus software will protect you from attacks. This sobering assessment from the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team emphasizes the importance of developing safe computing habits and keeping anti-virus software running continuously. Windows 8.1 comes with Windows Defender, a security program that combats malware to keep you safe.

 

Small Programs

Drivers are vital programs that make it possible for webcams, monitors, video cards, printers and other hardware devices to operate. When manufacturers release new drivers, install them on your computer. If your computer’s automatic updates are turned on, Windows installs many drivers for you automatically.

 

Keep It Clean

As you work on your computer, temporary files accumulate on your hard drive and may slow things down. Delete unneeded temporary and system files by running the Disk Cleanup utility. After you click “Settings” followed by “Control Panel,” type “Admin” and click “Administrative Tools.” Double-clicking “Disk Cleanup” launches the utility and gives you the option to choose the types of files you want to delete.

 

Improve Your Vision

Clean your monitor and you may discover how much easier it is to read on-screen text. Stay away from cleansers that contain alcohol or ammonia. Instead, spray a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and distilled water on a soft cloth and wipe the monitor gently.

 

Make Your Keyboard Look New

Give your keyboard a good cleaning to keep it sanitary and professional looking. Unplug the keyboard from the computer. Hold it upside down and shake it gently to dislodge large particles and debris. If you have a can of compressed air, hold it at a 45-degree angle and aim the nozzle between the keys; spray to remove residue and grime and then give the keyboard a few final shakes. Finish the job by wiping the keys with a slightly damp lint free cloth.
