Clean your computer!

What do dust, animal hair, mice, roaches and snakes all have in common?  Yep, you guessed it!  These are all things that can, and have been, found in CPUs! (Central Processing Unit  – or- your computer box… okay, hopefully no snakes in *your* CPU!)

ANY of these items can affect the cooling fan(s) in your system and slow it down (not to mention leave nasty messes to clean up!)  Hence, it is a good idea on occasion to clean that CPU, so friendly critters don’t decide to move in.  And it is a fairly easy project, if you are up to it.

I like to joke that I recently read about another computer company who wanted their clients to come in and get their computer cleaned out – and that the computer company had ’specialized tools’ to do it!  Well, unless your computer is REAlly nasty, that specialized tool is really a can of air – and pretty easy to pick up at your local office supply store.

Your first step is to bring the computer outside (preferably NOT on a rainy day!) – cuz,  unless you are my father-in-law, whose computer is the only one we have seen in our 12+ years in business that did NOT have a spec of dust in it, you will have a dusty CPU interior.

Now, take the side off of your computer – there may be screws holding it in place or clips, etc., you just need to figure that out on your own as each make of computer is different. Trying not to touch anything on the inside of your computer, locate the fan(s) in your system, grab that can of air and blow!  In fact, any dust you see in there at all – keep on blowing!

Congratulations, you are now the proud owner of a cleaner, speedier computer!  And the hard drive thanks you!

If you need help – give us a call or drop off your system.  We can clean out your system, too… with our ’specialized tools’.

Happy computing!

Why defrag your computer?

Should I defragment my PC? Most PC owners have heard of defragmenting their hard drive, but what does it actually do and is it necessary?

Think of your hard drive as a huge file cabinet. The more files you have, the more you add, and the more they are accessed the more disorganized they can become. So, the computer will take longer to find the file you are looking for. Defragmenting goes through and organizes the files in an efficient way so the computer can access them faster.

If you own an older computer that runs Windows XP, then yes, you should run a disk defrag once per month (or more if your so inclined). To do this click Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter. Select the C: drive and click the Defrag button to start. The process can take a while if it has never been done before.  Remember, you need at least 15% free space or Disk Defragmenter will not run.

For you Windows Vista / 7 users, disk defragmenter is already scheduled for you by default to run once per week. You do not need to do anything further.

Viruses On Your Computer!

Here’s the thing about viruses.  They are a pain in the rear to most everyone trying to get business done.

But there’s more to it.

It used to be that malware and viruses were just annoying, and sometimes malicious like deleting files or making your machine go wonky.  But today it’s more like organized crime.  That email you got from some far away place?  There’s probably a 16 floor high-tech high-rise behind that email.  Vice Presidents and Project Managers, etc.  fine tuning the verbiage and income stream.  It’s not just some geek in in his basement with glasses and bad acne, who happened upon a weakness in the system.

If you’re up at all on current tech events (you shouldn’t have to be, leave that to us) you’d know that even in the U.S. there are entire corporations built on exploiting security holes.   It’s big business.  And they are seeing quite a healthy bottom line each year.  These organizations mostly go after the low hanging fruit of unprotected systems. Stay protected – be sure your anti-virus is up to date, and remember you get what you pay for!
