1. Net Restarting Your System Any time your system appears to act up, maybe things start to move very slowly, and there's no explainable reason for it, the first thing you should try is a simple system reboot. Rebooting your system is one of the most effective ways of fixing a great many problems that occurs on your system. Some of the things that you can fix on your system, with a simple reboot include: Programs running slower than usual. Applications using up considerable amounts of memory. Internet connectivity problems. Blue screen of death errors. 2. Not Backing Up Your Computer Hard drive failure is one of the most disastrous things that can occur on your system that is only made worse, if you have no backup plan in place. To keep your data safe, all you need to do is either utilise cloud storage or purchase another hard drive, whether internal or external. Alternatively you could go with a flash drive, if you intend to backup only smaller documents. When you have your backup system in place, it should carry out regular backups on your behalf, providing it has enough storage space to do so. When it comes to using something like a flash drive or external hard drive, you will need to manually plug them in, at the appropriate time, so that the backup can be carried. This may be once a week or once a month, ideally, you want to have as many backups as possible, but you don't want to overdo it. Of course, there's nothing stopping the flash drive or external hard drive from failing. However, with cloud storage this is minimised. You can use the cloud to backup literally everything, and it works considerably faster than other backup methods. Thinking about backing up your tablet or your phone, then cloud storage is something you may want to consider investing in. Just be sure to keep track of what's being backed up, and have some understanding of how to restore this data, in the event that you need it. 3. Not Keeping Your OS Up-To-Date Developers are constantly releasing new updates for their software, and for good reason. These reasons may include, for fixing bugs, adding new features, patching known security vulnerabilities, and to make ones system more secure. When you neglect to keep your operating system up-to-date you essentially leave your system out to be exploited. One of the best things you can do for your computer system is to have Windows Updates set to automatic. 4. Constant Use of Disk Defragmenter If you're on one of the latest Windows operating system, then you don't need to think about defragging your hard drive, this is because your OS is configured to do it automatically. You should only consider doing it manually, if your hard drive is unusually fragmented. And this should only be done on standard HDDs. Your later SSD drives do not need to be defragged, nor do they benefit from the process in any way, as data is stored much differently on them. 5. Using the Power Button to Turn off Ones System If you simply press the power button, then it will run through the shutdown process. However, if you hold the power button down, then it will perform what is called a hard shut down. This will abruptly shut your computer down, closing any files and programs in the process. This is not a recommended way of shutting your system off, as it can result in data corruption, loss of data and even hardware failure. You may find certain discussions on the net stating that there's nothing wrong with powering your system down in this manner. But the reality is that they are very much wrong. You should only ever use a hard shutdown in cases of emergency. Uchenna Ani-Okoye is a former IT Manager who now runs his own computer support website (Compuchenna).
