Make your PC run faster & more efficient

1 . Run Disk-Clean-Up, Defrag, remove unused programs.
2. Software: CCleaner, RoboForm, , Malware, Spybot.
3. Buy a great anti-virus like – ESET

 Run Disk-Clean-Up, Defrag, remove unused programs.

 New PCs come with a whole load of programs you will never use, and you probably don’t even know they exist. Some programs even run background processes when you load your computer, even though you are not using them.

To remove all these pointless programs, open the Control Panel’s Programs and Features page, and have a trawl through the list of installed software. Uninstall those that you do not need, while being careful to leave programs your computer’s hardware needs (typically their publisher will be listed as the PC maker’s name or as Microsoft).

Sounds complicated, but this is basically a way of reconfiguring how your hard drive stores information for maximum efficiency. Go to “My Computer”, right-click on the hard drive and select “Properties”. Under the “Tools” tab there should be an option to “Defragment Now”. Windows also includes a built-in disk de-cluttering tool called “Disk Cleanup”.  It searches through the system for unnecessary large files such as temporary Internet files, program installers, and so on. Open Disk Cleanup by clicking “Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup”. 

Software: CCleaner, RoboForm, , Malware, Spybot,  

These are wonderful software programs that will save you time and effort.

CCleaner is s a small, effective utility for computers running Microsoft Windows that cleans out the ‘junk’ that accumulates over time: temporary files, broken shortcuts, and other problems. CCleaner protects your privacy.

Buy a great anti-virus like – ESET

Anti-virus software scans files or your computer’s memory for certain patterns that may indicate the presence of malicious software (i.e., malware). Anti-virus software (sometimes more broadly referred to as anti-malware software) looks for patterns based on the signatures or definitions of known malware. Anti-virus vendors are always looking for malicious viruses daily, so it is important that you have the latest updates installed on your computer.

Computer viruses range from simply a P.I.T.A. to very destructive, causing data loss and even identity theft.  Anti-virus software, virus protection software helps eliminate these destructive viruses. Computer technology keeps increasing in efficiency, as does virus protection software. Choose virus protection software that is right for you, maybe even writing out your needs because there are a variety of important things to look for when finding the perfect anti-virus software.

  • Always update the software.
  • Run the software once a week or so to keep your computer clean.
  • Keep virus definitions up to date for the best virus protection.
  • Ask relatives for recommendations on the virus protection software they use.
  • Visit reputable software review websitesfor any information on anti-virus software that you might be considering.
  • Write down the current settings if you decide to change default settings on your virus protection software, so that you may change the settings back if the new ones don’t work.

Just an FYI…  I use ESET – http://ww2.eset.com/us

REMEMBER – Beliefs control biology, biology controls behavior, and behavior determines success. So, does your behavior serve you or prevent you from truly living your life?  Interested in learning to change your results and produce massive success?
