Computer Clean-up and Protection
Technology has really changed the way we do our work each day. Instead of having a cluttered desk we have transferred that cluttered desk to a cluttered computer.
The best way of not having a cluttered computer is to not clutter it in the beginning. Think of the desktop of your computer as your desk. One of the best things about working on a computer is saving valuable time in the day. Having papers and receipts all over your desk creates all kinds of havoc when trying to find something and it is the same on your computer. If you have lots of individual files on your desktop, chances are precious time is going to be wasted looking for the document you are needing.
Naming your documents properly can help the search engine find the needed information easily. Also, placing your documents in appropriate folders will make your life easier six months from now when you have to compile a multitude of documents to get something accomplished.
Simply think of the document folder on your computer as your filing cabinet. Create folders (like receipts, plans, etc.) and place inside your document folder (your filing cabinet). You can then make additional folders within the first folder (like months of the year) to further organize your documents.
Is your computer already cluttered? There are various apps you can purchase that will assist you in cleaning up your computer and create more memory to enable your computer run faster and more efficient. A number of websites are also available that offer help in doing a cleanup and getting rid of unnecessary files yourself.
Computer protection cannot be stressed enough. First of all, be smart about the sites you visit on the web. If the website looks suspicious, don’t go there. There are numerous services that can offer you protection from malware. Malware is a type of software that is designed to damage your computer or gain unauthorized access to your files. Some of the more popular and recommended ones include McAfee, Kaspersby, Bitdefender and Webroot.
For complete file protection, be certain to back up your computer. Even if your damaged computer can be repaired, chances are your files and photos have been corrupted. You can back up your valuable information by having an external hard drive or using an expert backup server.
