Mar 22, 2008
Have you noticed that your computer is functioning at a much slower pace than before? How about your computer hanging up on you and freezing altogether? Are there even times where it gave you the blue screen? Each and everyone of us has already gone through such stages in 'life' before and we all know how pain and agonizing it is to see the work you have been working on for the past hour gone in an instant. However, there are ways to deal with this and here we will give you some tips on how to check up your computer.

Check for viruses

It is always important to check first for any viruses or Trojans that may have unknowingly slipped into your computer under your nose. Find the best anti-virus software you can find out there and install it into your computer! Run through the program and let it sieve out all the 'dirt' in your computer. If there happens to be any viruses, let the program deal with it and there are prompts that will teach you how to deal with the virus. After which, you would have a virus free computer and set the virus scan to activate itself at regular intervals daily. As such it will also scan through your mil and everything else to ensure that no other virus would ever enter your computer again. It is absolutely essential for youths these days who love to surf the net.

Rid off all the spyware

Next, you have to get rid of any spyware that may be inside your computer. Believe me, anyone who surfs the net is bound to have some kind of spyware or adaware in their system unless they already have the necessary precautions in place. Websites would drop little programs into your computer and you have no idea that they have. Spyware and what it does varies very much but the main focus of such programs is basically to spy on you, your surfing patterns and your keystrokes. These will all be feed-backed to the original website where the spyware was planted and you would not even know. With all these programs functioning behind your back, no wonder your computer is processing so slowly and it is important to clean up all of these spyware. There are many different good spyware removal sites out there and you just have to download one and remove everything that is bad for your computer.

Last but not the least, you have to constant clean out your registry. Registry files do contain the information on how your software and hardware is suppose to function in your computer. However, these files can get corrupted and sometimes go missing causing your programs to not be able to function. Thus, find some good windows registry repair programs and equip yourself with enough protection to last your computer through.

These 3 steps are not the only steps you can take for a computer checkup, but they are the most important steps. Run them through and your computer should be relatively safe from crashing by itself.
