Spring Clean your Computer

When you usually think of Spring cleaning, it involves a broom, mop and bucket. Not this kind, we’re talking the maintenance of your most used item in your home or office. It has to be your computer, right! With the constant use day in, day out, it can sometimes be the most underlooked product in your home. After all, you clean your clothes, floors and dishes and you use those each day, then why not your computer?

Just like keeping your home organised, take the time to keep your desktop organised. Sort through your files and delete anything you don’t need, any files that you need to keep long-term, save and store them on an external hard drive. This is also a good way to protect your important files from viruses. By having all your documents within the right files, it makes it easy to find what you’re looking for and makes future maintenance easy.

Clean out your internet browser and delete any old extensions or browser data that you don’t use. This could improve the load speed and will keep your computer in tip-top shape.

Perform a malware scan on your computer. This should be done on a weekly basis but if you’ve been a bit behind with your updates now is the time to scan your computer for any viruses.

Clean your computer. No really, sanitize your mouse and keyboard. Wipe down your monitor with a microfibre cloth and check your desktop box for an excess build-up of dust.

By cleaning your computer on a regular basis, you should see an increase in speed, smoother operation and of course secure.
