Many of us today work with PCs on a daily basis and are constantly being made aware of security and performance issues with them. Sometimes we are made aware by being a victim and wonder what could I have done to prevent that or how can I keep the issue from occurring again or even mitigate the collateral damage next time.
I found an interesting article for some of the security/performance issues that we all face and it discusses some actions to take to help with the problems. There were some things that I already knew but the explanations were insightful just the same. Some of the maintenance actions I rarely do because I guess I never stopped to think about the consequences of not doing them. After reading the article I have a better appreciation of those rarely performed maintenance items. Maybe they won’t be so ‘rarely performed’ anymore.
