Save Money Doing Your Own PC Maintenance!

Computer repair companies will charge you $75 to $130 to do the same things you can do at home, if you know how.
First Turn ON your Windows Firewall!
Keep yourself SAFE form Hackers!

What you need to do is Clear your cache every night before you turn off your PC for the night.
Go into Internet options click Delete files, delete History and any thing else you want to remove.
The fewer things you have in there the better your PC will run.
Do that in the middle of the day if you use your PC a lot, then restart your PC.
Also do that at night before you turn off your PC for the night.
Never leave your PC on all night, if you do that slows it down.

Also do a defrag at least once a month, once a week is what i have mine set to.
Find the file that says: Defragmentor.
I have it set to do that automatically.
Defrag Drive C is especially important.

Also get a good virus and spyware program. You can not live without theses.
I highly suggest going over to: Download.com and get the AVG Virus Program and the Ad-Aware spyware program.
Run those every night before you turn off your PC for the night.
Doing just those few things will ensure your PC will work much better and you will save a lot on PC repairs.
