This is just Some handy Infomation I've picked up over the Years for Beginers and People not so Tech Savvy, mabie the Elderly and Disabled.
I allways think, and think am rite on this that a Computer System should run at its Peek Proformence all the Time based on the Speck of that PC.
You could Try Ccleaner for the Windows OS (Operating System) Try sticking to the Default Settings, and if you need help, look at the Various Forums on the Internet, or Post on here, Tech-forums.net .
Do a Regular Defragmentation at least once a Month, threw in the Windows Start Menu in Win 7 Pro, and Home Premium.
Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Defragmenter .
Theese Two Actions alone will Tremendusly help the Quality of your "Investment" and the Speed\Proformence of the PC.
Also Highly Recomended that you Use a Fully Paid for "Internet Security", not just nesseserily an Anti Virus. A Suit with Built in Protection against the Internet Nastys out their, and the Full capabilitys of System Scans ect. And with Fully Paid for Internet Security, you should get a Customer Service with it aswell. Mabie threw E - Mail, or Telephone Surport..
A Recomendation of Mine is KIS, Kaspersky Internet Security.
Also a Good recomendation to make is not to Click every Link on the Web, If you get a Pop up windows that Appears.. I just Close them but this can Lead to Infection such as Trojans and Worms, Key Loggers ect.
I allways use Genuine Web sites to Download Softwere such as Ccleaner from Piriform, instead of third Party sites, as they may be Infectious.
This is Probily the Best Advice I can give and that is if you are New to Computers and their Capability, stay away from Internet Banking untill you have a Good Famililarity with Laptop you are working with, or Desktop.. The Reason is, If you are Connected to the Internet Via Wireless, you Must Make sure you have a Fully Encrypted Wireless Connection, as it dosent take much to Log on Via someone elses Service.. But my Advice is to Go Wired. This will be done threw the Home Hub, also called a Router in wich the Ethernet Cable will connect to the Router and transmit threw the Cable to the acutal Computer\Terminal.
This inturn will Prevent anyone else Snaching the Signals out the Air. Mind you I would Recomend you contact your Surplier and make enquiries as to turn off the Router Wireless Capabilitys all together. Tech Surport mabie with here in the UK, such as Virgin, or BT, Sky..
If you have any Questions just ask them, thats how I learned, ask as many as you can think of, even if it sounds Stupid..
If you any Questions, Sign up here on Tech Forums, People will be happy to help espesh for the Newbies ou their..
