Maintaining computer

  1. The computer has been running fine for a year and a half without major issues other than random screw ups from resetting. But of course by now I have about 200 gb of files and programs on it and something always has to go wrong so I want to know if there's anything else I should be doing to optimize and maintain performance. I clean out temporary files, cache, and cookies every so often, I don't get viruses, but there's probably something I could be doing.

    To name a few...

    1. Periodic Defragging

    2. Keeping the system dust free by cleaning out the dreaded dust bunnies, etc.

    3. Freeing up your harddrive by transferring archival material to an external harddrive.

    4. Periodic harddrive diagnostics as preventive maintenance.
