Preventative Maintenance for Computers

Like many other pieces of technology, computers see constant wear and tear from being used. Simple things like downloading files, clicking on harmful sites by accident, and allowing dust to settle on the keyboard can build up to the computer slowing down and possibly being unusable. However, by running anti-malware programs, deleting files as needed, and cleaning out the dust on a computer, you can all prolong the lifespan of your computer for years of extra effective use. Whether they’re tasks that should be done every day, once a month, once a year, or only when needed, below is a list of maintenance tasks to perform to get the most out use of your computer.

Daily:

  • Try to get into a routine of backing up personal files, no one wants to lose projects you spent hours, if not days working on.
  • Run a malware scan to stay on top of virus prevention. Depending on how frequently you use the computer you can get away with doing this once a week; more frequent computer users should do this daily.
  • Check for updates every day so you don’t miss any crucial upgrades, nor will you have to spend hours installing dozens at a time if you procrastinate it.
  • If you use your computer for many hours at a time during the day, then plan to restart it at least once. This way, temporary files won’t build up and slow down use over time.
  • Never shut down by using the power button, always use the option from the start menu! Never leave your computer on overnight either to save electricity and to prevent wear-and-tear.
