Chapter 4 Troubleshooting and maintenance
Use Disk Cleanup or safe third-party cleaning tools to remove junk files and temporary
files that accumulate and slow down your system. Also, check for programs you no
longer need and uninstall them.
Run Disk Defragmenter to keep your hard disk in good condition and improve system
performance. Frequently performing this task does not harm your system.
Perform a full virus scan every week to catch viruses that might have slipped through
unnoticed. Most antivirus products have a scheduling feature to keep track of this
automatically.
Thoroughly clean the outside of your computer.
Use Windows Updates to fix operating system bugs and improve performance. Also,
be sure to check for driver updates for your hardware and new versions of your favorite
programs.
Run Windows Update monthly to install updates.
Sometimes a failing hard disk can be caught beforehand by using Hard Disk
Diagnostic.
