Install those updates!  Keeping up with operating system and software updates is a smart way to ensure your computer will perform optimally.

Restart or Shut Down:  At least weekly (or whenever your programs tell you to), restart your computer. This provides a “fresh start” and helps to make sure software and security updates are properly installed.

Minimize File Storage on Your Device: Make backup copies of files you are not willing to lose by uploading them to your OneDrive. This is safer than storing to your local drive, to a USB drive, etc.

Use Anti-Virus Software:  All computers are susceptible to viruses, spyware, and malware. Protect your computer by installing an antivirus program
