Monthly Cleanup Suggestion

You probably know how important maintenance is for keeping things working smoothly, when it comes to your car, pool or your own physical fitness.

But when it comes to computers, for some reason, the concept of maintaince has never hit the general public.

Imagine how expensive (& painful) owning a car would be if you never did anything to keep it maintained!

With that in mind, I’m hoping to encourage you Windows users to take a simple first step in maintaining your PC by using the free built-in utility known as the 'Disk Cleanup' tool.

The tool pretty much does what the name implies, which will help to free up valuable disk space and make your computer run a little faster.

The utility resides in the 'Programs' menu under Accessories and then System Tools.

If you've never run the tool before or it’s been a long while, it'll likely take a bit of time for the program to do its job, so be patient.

I highly recommend that you start doing this at least once a month!
