Clean up your computer and speed up your hard drive
If you are wondering why your computer does not perform as well or as quickly as it did when it was new, it is likely because the machine is in need of a good cleaning. In order to maintain the performance of a computer, it is very important to clean the hardware from time to time, and also to periodically clean up the data on the hard drive.
How often this should be done depends on the conditions in which the computer resides. For example, a PC in a house that has no pets and no smokers is likely to need a hardware clean less frequently than a computer in a house with 2 dogs, 3 cats and 2 adults who chainsmoke. How often your hard drive requires cleaning is also dependent on the frequency of use. A PC that is used several hours a day will need its disk cleaned up more often than a PC that only gets turned on once a week for a couple of hours.
Cleaning the dust, hair etc from your computer's hardware is not a particularly difficult task, but it should always done with the utmost care, particularly when handling delicate parts such as the hard disk. Cleaning a PC's hard drive is not exactly rocket science either, but depending on just how much data has accumulated, it can prove to be a time consuming task. For most computer owners, a time-saving way of conducting this task is to use a software program that is designed to work as a computer cleaner.
Depending on the extent of the cleaning required, a possible solution may be to use a combination of two or more computer cleaning programs. For example, this could include the cleaning tools built in to Windows, combined with a more specialized clean up tool such as an adult content file removal program.
Whatever tools and frequency you choose, just be sure to clean up regularly in order to keep your computer speedy.
