First Do Essential Housekeeping
Before undertaking any system changes, be sure that the basic maintenance chores are done. Also be sure that you know how to get back where you started in case changes don't work out. As a reminder here are the things that need to be done regularly:
• Back up Your Computer
This area is where the big savings in time can be made. The average computer user probably has far too much stuff loading at start up. Also, for PCs, Windows starts up a lot of services by default that many systems do not need. Controlling what starts up is also a major way to make your system faster and more efficient once it is up and running.
