Spring Clean Your Computer For Maximum Performance

With Spring in the air, now is a good time to do an annual clean up of the computers, servers and electronic equipment in your office, both inside and out.

    Failure to thoroughly clean your computer at least once or twice a year will result in decreased performance and possibly even system failures. Here’s why:

¨ Dust clogs the computer’s cooling system causing it to heat up, damaging sensitive electronic equipment. Dust can also cause fan noise and (believe it or not) slow performance!

¨ Crumbs and dirt in your keyboard can cause keys to stick and crunchy sounds when typing. Plus, it’s just gross and unhealthy; do you know there are more germs on your computer keyboard than the average public toilet?

¨ Dust, fingerprints and dirt build-up will make your computer monitor dim and fuzzy.

But the physical “dirt” is only the beginning...

¨ Delete temporary files and unused programs taking up space and slowing things down.

¨ Get rid of clutter on your desktop by removing shortcuts and files you don’t need.

¨ Make sure you have the latest security patches and updates installed and configured properly.

¨ Check your backups and be sure you could conduct an emergency “restore” of the data if you needed. Remember, the best time to check your backups is when you DON’T desperately need to recover your data!
