How to Spring Clean Your PC!
 
As spring approaches many of you are looking to embrace the new season by throwing out the old and embracing the new!
 
That is why we have spoken to Introstat’s IT Specialist Jiten Maken and asked him how one can spring clean their PC quick and easily.
 
 
1.    You can uninstall any programs that you do not use.
To do this, go to your Control Panel, Click on Programs & Features, and then select the program that you want to remove.
 

You will then be given the option to “Uninstall”. Click on this, and the program and all its associated files will be removed.
 
 
2.    Delete unnecessary files. You can do this by browsing through your files and deleting what you don’t need any more, or making use of a PC cleaner / optimiser.
Here’s one that you can try: https://www.ccleanercloud.com
 
3.    If you are IT inclined, it is always a great idea to back up your information, and reload windows for a clean install and restore data.
If you need a hard drive or backup solution, look at our online store (http://www.introstatonline.co.za/Shop/Data-Storage.aspx) or contact our sales team today!
 
4.    If you have a desktop PC, you can open the case, and clear out the dust in the fans to ensure proper cooling.

5.    Delete your internet browsing history and cookies.
You can do this by opening your Internet Explorer Browser, and then opening Tools -> Internet Options
You can then choose to delete your temporary files, cookies and browsing history.

 
 
It’s that quick and simple!
 
 
If that doesn’t do the job then the only solution left is to bring in your PC to Introstat and speak to our IT specialists, who can assist with repairs and maintenance of your PC or notebook.
