Protect your PC in the safest, efficient, and effective manner

Some basic applications help you manage your PC with minimal maintenance. There are however somethings that should be done before you perform any "fixes" on a computer. This list of highly recommended processes and tasks that we feel are essential to have done before and after tampering with your PC's configuration.

Separator 1
First Step

Please make sure to backup ALL of your information before performing any of the operations listed on this website.

In order to back up your information you will need one of the following:

  • CD/RW
  • DVD +/- R(W)
  • USB Drive

Along with the hardware device in your PC you will also need software to be able to efficiently use this device. Most versions of the Windows Operating System have back up software included. There are also plenty of other alternatives available from independent software manufacturers.

Along with backing up all of your personal information, be sure to Backup your registry as well. Here are some simple instructions on how to backup your registry.


Second Step


We recommend you read through our System Restore section of our website. This is a precautionary step to take in fixing your personal computer. Please remember to always have your data backed up onto cd's, dvd's, or another storage device that is readily accessible.

With System Restore, you can turn back the clock to a time before you started noticing problems with your PC from an application install perhaps, before telling Windows "Yes" to a proposed driver written before the new hardware existed, or even before an unexplained spate of Blue Screens of Death. With this properly setup you can also rewind the clock if one of the changes you made while attempting to clean your PC has affected Windows stability. Once you roll back, Windowswill have been restored to it's present state on that date selected. There are some limitations: System Restore is not intended for backing up personal files, so you will not be able to recover any personal files.


Third Step


As you use Windows and install different programs, the way Windows boots up will change. While this change is not always or even often related to spyware, one thing is certain, over time your PC will slow down quite noticably upon installing applications that you are and are not aware of. The Msconfig console is where you can make some alterations with regards to the programs Windows loads as it boots up.

Read our section on Using Msconfig. This will teach you how to disable all unwanted and unneeded programs and spyware from running the second you turn on your computer. This is the first step we recommend as this not only make your computer operate more efficiently it will also help with spyware issues that are present while booting. Remember to reboot your computer once you are done disabling the unnecessary start up programs from the list.


Fourth Step


Check for disk errors by running CHKDSK in "SAFE MODE" or from the Recovery Console. In the Check Disk dialog box, select the "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, click "Start" and have it repair anything it finds. As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors which slow down hard disk performance and make data writing difficult. Check Disk scans the hard drive and verifies the logical integrity of a file system by checking for system errors, lost clusters, lost chains, and bad sectors. When encountering logical inconsistencies in file system data, it will perform the necessary actions to repair the file system data. When running this operation, it may take several hours depending on your exact hardware configuration for CHKDSK to complete.


Make sure your information is backed up before running CHKDSK, if your hard drive is in a poor state, it can cause your hard drive to seize losing all of your information.

Fifth Step


Defrag your system. Disk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk when a file is opened. Disk Defragmenter consolidates fragmented files and folders on the hard disk so that each file bit is not spread through the disk. This speeds up reading and writing to the disk. Read "The Importance of Disk Defragmentation" for instructions. Look for a visual tutorial on how to defrag your system in the near future.

You can use Windows "Disk Defragmenter" or you can use another application. A great free application is Piriform's Defraggler.


Sixth Step


Never forget about Windows Updates and how important they are in combating efforts to take over your personal computer. Using these tips will help keep you 99% free of trouble.

Seventh Step


To ensure that your PC is prepared for internet browsing and has the basic programs needed to surf the web. Take a moment to review our "Must Have" section for non-security programs we feel that will benefit every computer user. We are always updating and re-thinking our decisions, so if you feel that there are programs missing or programs you would like added do not hesitate to email us.


These are the recommended tasks for all PC users to get the most out of their PC. We have a combined 25 years industry experience and after fixing many relatives & "friends" PC's. We found that these actions not only prevented further immediate issues, but also aided in optimal PC operation.
