Reducing heat 

Some people use the computer for many hours, due to this computer becomes over heated. Over heat is not good for your computer as it runs slowly. To avoid this problem one should have free flow of air to their computers like some people removes the casing cover so that air will flow freely. Another way is to buy extra fan and connect to computer casing. It is very easy to connect extra fan, just you need to tight with provided screw and connect to extra power supply cable. The third method is to maintain very low room temperature by using AC or air coolers so that heat generated by the computer can be cooled and make the computer to run sufficiently.


Scanning of Virus and removing

Virus can enter into your computer in two ways. One way is from your external storage like pen drives, external hard disk, flash drive, and diskette. Secondly, it can enter from internet. Your computer should always have antivirus installed in it that will protect from all unwanted programs. If you buy brand new computer it should be pre-installed with antivirus program. You can also use free and trial version of antivirus program like Avira, Avast, AVG or etc, which you can download from internet and install them in your computer. Installing antivirus program is not enough to protect your computer. You should also update the antivirus on daily bases so it can detect and remove virus present in the system as well as new virus. If you are unable to update your antivirus on daily bases, then better switch on automatic mode so that it can automatically update on daily bases when you connect internet to your computer.

Disk Defragmentation

When you copy, paste, create or delete a file from your computer then it will make your computer fragment. In simpler terms fragmentation means files are written in various locations in your hard disk. So that computer takes longer time to search those files to run and create empty space in between the files. To fulfill these gaps defragmentation of your disk drive is required.

To perform disk defragmentation, go to C: drive, go to ‘Properties’, ‘Tools’ tab then you can see ‘Defragmentation’. Click on it then wait until finish. The more files on your hard disk the longer it take to finish.

Drive scan disk

Drive scan disk is similar to defrag, where operating system repairs bad sector and so on. It will work like medical check up to your computer.

To access, go to C: drive, go to properties, tools bar, and chick “ERROR CHECKING” tab and system will ask for restart in order to run full scan disk.

Controlling user Account

Windows computer operating system can create multiple users in one computer.  Your computer may share with your family members or you can share via Local Area Networks (LAN) or WI-FI.  You can manage these by user accounts, go to ‘control panel’, ‘User Accounts’. You will be safe and stable once you limit user activities on your computer account by specifying them as guest or an administrator or Limited user.  These account settings can be done by owner of the computer which he as complete access to his computer.
