We all have the unfortunate issue of seeing our technological gadgets and computers steadily slow down and get worse from the day they are bought. Although when you take it to a repair shop and such they tell you to do this and that, we do not have the time or the cash to keep servicing a computer every two to three months. So if you want to put a stall on Murphy’s Law, then the best way to go about it by making sure that your computer/ Xbox/ laptop/ smartphone et cetera runs properly.
Changes to the setup of the computer itself
Most of the software products need to be registered and properly updated every time. Without the updates, the software will have fewer functions and while your computer keeps updating there might be discrepancies and your software might stop working.
Always make sure to put up spam detectors and run your antivirus at least once a week. Anti advertising software, anti malware software and antivirus software should be there. Usually the software can be installed but do not run the scans at the same time.
Weekly things to do for cleaning the computer
Your computer needs weekly beauty care as much as you do. On a weekly basis you need to run a defragmentation program and clean up the deleted files/ recycle bin. This will make your hard disk function a bit smoothly and get rid of the files and data that you do not need. It is also considered a good idea to buy a separate external hard drive to reduce the stress on your computer’s internal storage. Most of us have issues with storage and also the computer slowing down when the storage space keeps lessening.
Some of the tricks for keeping storage space as expanded as possible is by going for the additional hard drive to make sure that you can store your photos and videos downloaded. Another way to free up space is by cleaning out your internet temporary files and also your computer’s temporary files folders along with the browsing history. These tend to take up a lot more space and as you keep browsing it will only take up even more space.
Make sure that you read the manual that comes with your computer. It generally lists out the best ways to make your computer keep working for as long as possible. Apart from that, keeping the computer less stressed by keeping the storage cleaned out and such. Update your anti malware and antivirus software so that you won’t be caught by surprise.
