    Default Computer Maintenance Is Necessary For A Healthy Computer

    Whether we are a computer lover or a computer hater, one thing is for sure. When we are using a computer, we want it to work and work well. How frustrating it is when we are working on the computer and all of a sudden it slows down to a crawl, or it becomes unstable to the point where we have to reboot the system, possibly losing any unsaved work. Experiences like these cause the birth of many computer haters. So how can we use our computers to in a way that will help minimize these unwanted situations? What actions can we take to help our computer age gracefully? Good computer maintenance is absolutely necessary if our computer is to be useful for its whole life. What are some ways to keep our computer up and running fast?

    One way, and probably the most important, is to install proper anti-malware software on your system. It should be a program that can not only search for and delete malware on your computer but also protect you in realtime from being infected by it in the first place. So make sure that you get software that has both of these features, as some today do not. Malware can affect your computer in multiple ways. Many times it will cause it to run slower since it is using your computer's memory resources. Viruses are known for deleting data that your computer needs to run efficiently. Once it is deleted, your computer may start to crawl or become totally unusable. Other types of malware, such as spyware, run in the background attempting to collect your personal data. Obviously, this will take a toll on your computer's performance. Worms are often used to slow networks down by clogging up the data being transferred on over the network. So for these reasons, you do not want malware on your system at all.

    Just in response to this post, I do work for Dell & Sony as an on-site tech for hardware replacement and diagnosis. If you don't think your issue is due to malware let me know and please be as precise as possible in defining your problem!

    A good program to have is SuperAntispyware and Spamfighter, both are free to the home user and both will prevent a lot of heartache down the road. Both are free to the home user. SuperAntispyware you will have to run and update manually but I think it's pretty good.
