Technical ( Tech ) advice

Quick & Dirty
Clean your computer. It gets dirty and needs to be cleaned. Yes, inside too, but I'm talking about all that crud from advertisements and playing online.

Delete the temp files. Manually update your antivirus and adware scanner software. Scan for adware and viruses. If anything is found, clean it and scan again. Continue scanning until nothing bad is found.

Manually apply any critical Windows updates. Repeat updating and rebooting until all are applied.

Repeat in a few months or as soon as you notice anything out of the ordinary. That's about it. Get this stuff done and your computer will whistle while it works ! :) .. well, maybe you'll whistle .. or i'm sure something somewhere will make some noise :)

protecting your data is much easier (and cheaper) than recreating it


I often make the comment if you don't have a copy, it's not that important. This is a hard thing to say, but even harder to hear. Especially after data has been lost.
Back up your data! This point can not be stressed enough. A back up is simply a safe copy. It doesn't matter if it's on floppy diskette or some complicated online service. Just make sure you have one. And make sure it works too ! Try pulling some data from it for testing to make sure you can get to the copies in the event something happens to the originals.

Keep in mind that every hard drive will crash given enough time.

UPS (Battery backup) units allow your computer to keep running during brief power outages. They can also have your computer shut down safely in the event of an extended power outage.
