A working computer is a good computer and everyone seems to love that and everyone seems to be upset when our computer doesn’t work. Although almost everyone uses a computer in some form or the other, like right now how you are doing yourself- not many of us can say that we take good care of computers.
Really how good are we at computer maintenance? Below are a few handy tips which might generate the “ Oh I knew that already” response and whilst they might not fix any obvious computer issues they will definitely prolong the health of your computer and ensure some smooth running.
So here is a quick look at some questions to instill good behavior for computer maintenance in Dubai:
Clearly your computer has data which is important,memorable and critical both from a professional and personal front. Not backing up your data in today’s world is plain ignorance and a non-negotiable activity. It makes sense to spend a few minutes each week backing up your data rather than your computer crashing and trying to retrieve it.
Take a few minutes to actually see where your computer is located. Avoid direct sunlight or damp areas. Avoid placing your computer near heavy machinery or near any heat source. Is there enough room to avoid wiring issues? Consider your location carefully.
Do You Clean Your Workstation?
Almost everyone is guilty of eating and drinking at our workstations and although we tend to clean up any major and obvious mess there are always crumbs, bits and pieces which can get into very tricky places in our keyboards or other areas which can affect the functionalities.
Are you Secure?
Do you have antivirus and spyware installed on your computer and most importantly do you run them regularly? In today’s world of data theft and computer attacks one cannot afford to be not protected. Every computer device which is linked to the internet must have some kind of antivirus software installed without fail. The damage of computer attacks can be extremely huge and sometimes irreplaceable.
Sometimes we all can be greedy and install programs which might seem interesting at the time or we download thinking we may use at a later date but never end up using it. Well there are some programs which we don’t even know existed on our computers! Clear out your computer of such programs as they use up a lot of memory and can slow down the performance of your computer.
You also need to check for the updates on both your hardware and your software for your computer. These include your Operating System, Browsers, Drivers, Patches and other manufacturer updates. This will ensure that your system is up-to-date and not running behind performing inadequately.
Finally you need to be informed with what’s happening in the world of technology or at least on maintenance aspects. Continue to read informative articles like this to ensure you are updated with the required knowledge.
