Should i also run an antivirus frequently?

If you regularly access, browse or use the Internet, then you will want to run a virus scan more often than once per week. More regular scans can vary based on your Internet usage. You can run scans as often as two to three times per week or even daily if you are concerned about a virus getting onto your computer.

Make sure that your computer hard drive is clean. Download a software called Cleaner or Tuneup Utilities. It will help keep your computer a lot cleaner.


Don't download software from just any website. Make sure that the website is trusted, and even if you do download something--and find it useless--make sure you delete it from your computer.

Run Disk Cleanup once a week to remove unnecessary (temporary files) files.

How often do you need to do a computer maintenance?

With a machine that's running 24 hours a day, you can do a lot. All of this is automated...
Daily - Back up "My Documents", Firefox bookmarks, email, and other stuff that changes often. WinZip's Backup Job feature is excellent for this.
Daily - Defrag C: drive and one of my other 6 partitions using O&O Defrag. The other drives effectively have a weekly defrag.
Weekly - Backup the entire C: partition using Norton Ghost scheduled backup.
Weekly - Scans with Norton Antivirus, Spybot, Ad-Aware.
Weekly - Registry Cleanup with Registry Mechanic.
Monthly - throw a daily backup onto CD for longer-term keeping.

Without grounding yourself, the electrical charge from your body will try to get to ground by going through your highly conductive computer parts, which can damage them. ... Some components are electrostatic sensitive - meaning they are so delicate, even the static electricity in a body can destroy them.

Depending on how you define "frequently". Running an antivirus scan at least once per week will help maintain your device and ensure that the number of potential problems that you face is as limited as possible.
The frequency of scanning for a virus also depends on how often you access the Internet and the performance of your PC, the number of scans and the regularity can vary.

Depende kung kelan ka last nag discharge or kung nasa lugar ka na nagbi-build ng maraming static charges. Pero mostly sa mga mechcatronix central, di na sila nagdi-discharge since nasa static-free zone naman sila.

Actually, no. The computer will run base on its features. That's why there is a limit on the features of every part, like the clock speed, and dedicated memory.

Yes. May chance na pabagalin niya yung system mo kasi may mga bagong features itong isasama na hindi naman kasama dati, so more work for the computer. Yung iba nga di mo naman kailangan pero nakaka affect pa rin sa performance ng computer.

Same siya sa mga applications and sa software

Kung naka enable naman yung antivirus feature na built-in na sa computer mo from your os, like windows defender. Made-detect naman niya siguro kung may virus yung app.

Ano pong schedule ng paglinis ng system unit? Daily or weekly?

Depende kung ano ang environment ng pc mo. Kung nasa sahig ba or kumakain ka habang ginagamit pc mo, dun magbabase kung gaano mo kadalas lilinisin pc mo. Pero recommended na atleast once a year mo linisin.

If you like updating that much, then dedicate a storage for your system updates. And remove unnecessary files that you don't need.

Get a computer with fine specifications and do system performance review/ cleanup regularly to remove unwanted programs that slows down the computer's performance.

ook

One moment you are typing on your computer keyboard as usual, when suddenly a key sticks or does not produce a character on the screen. Perhaps you have a group of keys that suddenly stop working. Laptop and desktop keyboards alike can stop functioning due to a number of causes, most of which can be resolved by troubleshooting. Knowing how to fix some keyboard keys that do not work can save you time, and save you the cost of buying a new keyboard.



Initial Keyboard Key Troubleshooting



Disconnect and reconnect your computer keyboard, then restart your computer. Sometimes a poor connection can result in keys not working on your keyboard.

VIDEO OF THE DAY



Update the device driver for your keyboard by going to the manufacturer's website of your keyboard, and then download and install the latest driver matching the brand and model number of your keyboard.



Disconnect your keyboard from your computer and inspect the pins in the keyboard connector if you have a PS/2 connector. The PS/2 connector for your keyboard has six pins, which connect into a PS/2 port of your personal computer, to allow for communication to and from your keyboard. Straighten any bent pins you may find, by gently using a ballpoint pen. You must replace your keyboard if you see broken pins.



Try testing your keys using a different application, such as another word processing program. Keys like the function keys on your keyboard labeled F1 through F12 may not work in one application but will work fine in another.

Clean Under Desktop Keys



Disconnect your standard desktop keyboard, then press down on a key not working. Slip a car key or a flathead screwdriver underneath the key. Twist the screwdriver or car key until the keyboard key pops off.



Use a damp cloth, moist cotton swabs or compressed air to remove dust, hair, and food crumbs under the key. Use only water or rubbing alcohol to moisten the cloth and cotton swabs—other cleaners can damage the plastic of your computer.



Position and press down on the key to snap it into place. Repeat this for all of the keys to clean underneath them, if necessary.

Clean Under Laptop Keys



Turn your laptop off, then use a flathead screwdriver or knife under a key corner, prying the key off gently. You will hear a snap as the key detaches.



Remove the key retainer remaining on your laptop using your knife or screwdriver under the corner, then popping it off with a gentle twist.



Remove the space bar by pulling it off after your insert the screwdriver or knife underneath the bar.

Clean underneath your laptop keys using cotton swabs or a soft cloth dampened with water or alcohol. You can also use compressed air to remove dust, hair and other debris.



Replace your laptop keys by placing the key retainer into position. If you cannot remember the position, copy another retainer's position by removing another key. Insert the keypad into the retainer, then position the key over the retainer while pressing down on the key. You should hear the key snap into place. Place your laptop's space bar over the space bar slots, then snap it into

There are several ways to back up your PC.
1.)Select the Start button, then select Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Backup and Restore.
2.)Do one of the following:
*If you've never used Windows Backup before, or recently upgraded your version of Windows, select Set up backup, and then follow the steps in the wizard.
*If you've created a backup before, you can wait for your regularly scheduled backup to occur, or you can manually create a new backup by selecting Back up now.
*If you’ve created a backup before, but want to make a new, full backup rather than updating the old one, select Create new, full backup, and then follow the steps in the wizard.
Note:
Do not back up files to the same hard disk that Windows is installed on. For example, do not back up files to a recovery partition. Always store media used for backups (external hard disks, DVDs, or CDs) in a secure place to prevent unauthorized people from having access to your files; a fireproof location separate from your computer is recommended. You might also consider encrypting the data on your backup.

Deciding how often to defrag your hard drive depends on how you use your computer. If you load, save and add to files on a regular basis, your system might require more frequent defragging than someone who only turns on their computer every few days.
Most people should defrag their hard drives about once a month, but your computer might need it more frequently. Windows users can use the built-in disk defragmenter utility on their computers. Run a system scan, then follow the tool's device. It will tell you whether or not your hard drive requires defragging.

Based on my experience, yes. Practically, kahit ano namang devices may become laggy or slower when we update it since new versions of that software intended for newer versions of hardware are being incorporated to your older version of hardware. Whenever you update your software, make sure that it is suitable to the hardware you have.
