Computer Maintenance Tips
Computer Maintenance Tips
Computer failures can cause unnecessary productivity loss and can be a real hassle. Most computer techs agree that many of the issues that they encounter can be avoided with basic Preventative Maintenance. Physical Maintenance, Systems Maintenance, and Systems Security are all a part of Preventative Maintenance. They will not only assist in avoiding some major issues, but also enhance the performance and overall health and longevity of your computer.
Keeping your PC clean plays a very important role in the life of your computer. Dust build-up may jam fans which leads to overheating. Overheating leads to a slower PC or even worse…frying your computer. A dust-free environment enhances the appearance of your computer and prevents the components from failing. Make sure that the computer is unplugged. Then spray your PC and its components with compressed air to remove dust. One way to sanitize your computer is to wipe down the computer, keyboard, and mouse with a damp cloth.
System Maintenance is also a vital factor in Preventative Care. Your computer system should be updated, cleaned, and defragged to increase speed and reliability. Under BeCloud’s Complete Care, the systems maintenance is handle automatically and monitored by our capable help desk staff. If you’re not covered by BeCloud’s Complete Care, the following are a few methods you can implement for basic systems maintenance:
Let’s start with Disk Defragmenter: It normally runs on a schedule, but you can do this manually as well. This tool rearranges fragmented data on your hard disk to increase access speed. (Although Disk Defrag is great for traditional hard drives, it is not recommended for Solid State Drives (SSD), as this may decrease the lifespan.)
1. Click the Start Menu and type dfrgui in the search bar.
2. Press Enter
3. Select a disk and then click Analyze Disk to analyze
4. Select a disk and then click Defragment Disk in Windows 7 and Optimize in Windows 8 to defrag.
Next, Run Disk Cleanup: This allows you to free up space on your hard drive.
1. Click the Start Menu and type disk cleanup in the search bar.
2. Check the files you want to delete under Files to Delete and click Ok

1. Right click the Start Menu

Task Manager Allows you to end any programs running that you do not need.
1. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc
2. Select the task to end, then press End Task.
Systems Security is important because it protects your computer and your data. One way to secure your PC is by updating your anti-virus software. Having updated software helps protect your PC from old and possibly newer malware. You should make sure that the feature for automatic updates is enabled. Also avoid downloading and opening files of unknown or suspicious-looking sources. Further protect your data by backing up your files to an external hard drive. If you are under BeCloud’s Complete Care Agreements, all of the security aspects of updates, scans and checks are automated and monitored.

Consider Dedicated Server Hosting to Improve Website Rankings.
Consider Dedicated Server Hosting to Improve Website Rankings.
A website hosting provider usually hosts multiple sites on a single server. This is known as “shared hosting”. Control panel software such as DirectAdmin or cPanel used to separate client access and streamline access for user to common features. Providers do this because it saves money for the hosting provider by sharing server resources across as many sites as possible which also translates to lower costs for the consumer. But, as the web traffic grows from multiple sites, this can slow down and affect the response times of all the websites hosted on the server. In addition, software bugs, network bandwidth, picture file types, server resources and most commonly the programming code used on the hosted sites can limit server response times.
Why should I care you ask? One important reason is that search engines utilize uptime and response times to rate your site. The cheapest solution is not always the best. One website to quickly check your website response times can be found at: http://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/
Once you have verified that your website code is optimized as much as possible, you should then look at your host for additional speed increases. A dedicated server from www.becloudit.com can provide isolated access to server resources thereby increasing website responsiveness. Isolating your website to a dedicated server, since the prices of those hosted server solutions have dropped dramatically over the last few years, makes it a viable and cost effective alternative.
