COMPUTER TIPS & TRICKS

Perform Updates Regularly

You should do software updates
on a regular basis. This includes Microsoft Windows updates (when
updates are available there will be an icon by the clock), anti-virus
and anti-spyware updates (should be checked before doing a weekly scan)
and the updates for other programs like Adobe or scanner software, that
may occur on a less frequent basis.

Run Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware Scans Weekly

As
well as getting the updated virus and spyware definitions on a regular
basis you will need to perform the scans. Doing the scans weekly will
keep on top of the problem and limit any damage these files may cause.
Just remember that virus scans can be run from one user profile and scan
the whole computer, but spyware scans need to be run under each users’
profile individually.

Computer Frozen and Won’t Shut Off?

Sometimes
static electricity builds up inside the computer causing it to freeze.
Press and hold down the power button until the computer turns off. Leave
the computer off for 15-20 minutes allowing the static electricity to
dissipate. Then turn the computer back on. This tends to happen if the
computer is sitting directly on the floor especially when the flooring
is carpet.

Computer Keeps Shutting Off?

When
computers get overheated they tend to shut down. Feel your computer case
– if it feels warm or hot to the touch you may have an overheating
problem. Ensure that the computer vents are dust free. Make sure that
the air around the computer can circulate freely and is not in a tight
or enclosed space.
