As with ANY BUSINESS, there are administrative details you need to tend to. The following items are food for thought.
- Keep the programs on your computer up to date, including Windows.
- Do you have Windows Update configured to automatically check for updates?
- Do you have software installed to scan for viruses and malware, as well as a firewall?
- Do you defragment your hard drives? If you use your computer a lot, you should defragment your drives at least once a week. It will help keep all of the pieces of files together so your computer does not have to work so hard to open them for you.
- Microsoft Windows has a Disk Defragmenter in the System Tools.
Anti-virus and Anti-Malware Software
There are lots of programs you can use to keep your computer safe. Most programs offer a FREE version, as well as a PAID version. It does not matter which version you use. What IS important is that YOU USE SOMETHING!
Until recently, I was using a paid version of Comodo Internet Security Pro software. Prior to that, I had been using Comodo’s free software. CLICK HERE to go to Comodo’s website to look over what they have.
