In today’s world of technological advances, the problems that arise from new technology may be greater than the value that is afforded people. Problems with computer crashes, viruses, Trojan horses, identity theft and more have definitely made dealing with the world more complex.
People need to isolate and understand the technical or mechanical difficulties that can occur with computers. This results in quite a long list of problems to solve. Most people are not particularly learned in these areas of new technology, so a computer specialist, often called a geek, needs to fix the problem and attach a high price tag to the job. If you nderstand some of the more common causes of computer difficulties, frequently you can cure the problem yourself.
Common Causes of Computer Issues:
• Viruses and spyware can result in a variety of start-up issues. Installing a free program, such as AVG free, Norton’s free trial, or McAfee will allow for a diagnosis and future protection. There are many good programs that can be obtained for free that will do a good job for you. Never run two different anti-virus programs at one time. If you have installed two programs, you need to choose one program and uninstall the other.
How To Improve Computer Speed
• When the computer is running more slowly than usual, a virus may be the problem. Too many programs may be open at one time. It is good to clear the unnecessary programs occasionally. They represent clutter to your computer. It is comparable to you having too many papers or files on your desk. So much data is stored in your computer when you surf the Internet. Installing another free program, called CCleaner, is a good way to clean your computer at the end of each day. A registry cleaner is provided with this program. Registry problems can create many kinks in your computer and will cause it to slow down.
Dealing With New Computer Software
• There may be a problem with new hardware or new software that has recently been installed. Isolating these programs and uninstalling them temporarily will answer that question. Once they are uninstalled, check the computer start-up and the speed of operation.
• When visiting a site, cookies may be attached to your computer. Those sites that do this are monitoring your Internet habits. Clearing of these cookies will be done once you begin to use CCleaner. Never open an attachment to an email if you do not know the sender. Many viruses get into computers through these attachments.
How To Improve Computer Performance
• Computer parts and programs may become obsolete over time. Peak performance will never be the same once they are. Occasionally updating your computer will resolve this. In this instance, it is a good idea to talk to a geek about how out-dated your computer is. Generally, if a legitimate repair person is not selling computers, they will give you an honest assessment of your computer.
• If the computer will not start, check the security of the hook-up devise. Put more simply, see if the computer is plugged-in. Check all of the connections. Make sure that all connections are secure.
• If the computer is making strange sounds, it may be that it is getting ready to crash. It may be something more minor, such as a wire resting on a cooling fan. There are as many reasons as there are noises.
