Make a new year’s resolution to good computer health!
With technology constantly evolving and online connectivity extending our reach, ensuring your business operation operates at a high level and maintains a fast, reliable connection is vital. In the context of today’s fast-paced marketplace, taking a closer look at something as simple as the overall health of your computer and basic, everyday practices can make a noticeable difference.
As the calendar turns over, another opportunity to provide regular maintenance on your computer arrives with it. A great, regular practice to adopt. Here are a few tips to help you extend the life of your computer:
- Perform regular back-ups. This helps prevent a loss of access to photos, documents and more. Utilizing an automated system that backs up your system often will ensure peace of mind. A few options include:
- Windows 10 Integrated Backup and Restore
- Cloud storage
- External drives
- Antivirus and anti-spyware are crucial. For recommendations on the right protection solutions, feel free to contact our I.T. support team. In addition, Hamilton Network Sentinel offers a suite of solutions designed to manage and defend your network.
- Close programs that are not being used. Multiple applications running at the same time may slow down your computer.
- Restart your computer regularly to keep it in good shape. Benefits include increased performance, bug fixes, and prevention of memory leaks.
- Updated hardware is essential to analyzing your workstation condition. The new year may be a prime time to explore options for customizable servers and computer hardware from PCs, laptops, tablets, and other necessary computer accessories.
- External care is just as important as the internal care. Periodically wipe away dust from vents, screens and keyboards with a microfiber cloth. Keeping food and drink away from the keyboard is also a good habit to keep – ensuring continued computer health.
