I had a busy day !! I did a little spring cleaning and the old PC is hitting on all 8 cylinders. My old Dell is running xp3 and going on 6 years old, runs like a Jack rabbit. I keep her cleaned up and backed upped. Thanks to all the knowledge that I have learned on this forum, I'm doing OK for an old man. 99% of the things I know I learned on this forum. I try hard to give back to others, what little knowledge I have. No one appreciates the members that work hard each day to help others more that me. I'm sure this thread is old news to most ,but maybe someone will get a little good from it. I'm trying to remember some of my old typing skills, so my posts look more professional, so bare with me friends!! Many thanks my friends for all you do!!== garybear PS Almost forgot. I created an image of my OS with Mavrium Reflect after all that cleaning. LOL

to get rid of dust

 

turn case upside down with side off so all the loose dust falls out.

 

do not blow dust out with your mouth as fine droplets of moisture will corrode.

 

use an air aerosol spray can bought from computer shop,

 

use a hand held weak vaccuum cleaner or cold air setting hair dryer to blow dust out you can dislodge stubbon dust with a soft fine brush [pastry brush or artist brush]

 

use a static staic strap to stop shorting out.

 

be care not to knock the RAM or CPU/FAN

http://www.wikihow.com/Build-a-Computer

 

not as hard as you think and will give you great satisfation, i thing you could do it

 

Hi friend. My neighbor Wild Willie on the forum has built several. I'm sure I could do it with his help and maybe I will some day, but right now I'm happy with what I have. Thanks for the tips friend.===garybear PS I'm a simple man and I have a simple PC. It runs really well for what I use it for. It would be satisfying to build your own PC.

Hi Gary,

 

IS360 only looks for Windows' own patched vulnarabilities, but Secunia looks for all the programs' vulnarabilities in your PC, patched or not.

 

The main difference, even for Windows' vulnarabilities is, if there is an existing unsolved vulnarability, Secunia shows it, but IS360 only checks if there is a patch available and you have not installed it for Windows.

 

Secunia also shows the programs if they have come to their end of life. (No more updates for the program)

 

Cheers.

Hi friend!! How about this one ??? Hi Defragment the Registry

 

As a speed tweak defragmenting the Registry is probably not ever going to show an improvement in performance. But over time it can become very large and should occasionally be defragmented.

 

You can compact and defrag the registry with Auslogics Registry Defrag

I had secunia for a while as a result of a mention on iobit forums some time back, but found it often gave false positives for some software and is not more.

 

when i open IE8 from the quick lauch it opens up eight tabs in my homepage two of which are set to filehippo & majorgeeks between them I keep all my software up to date.

 

[by the way this week new WinASO update, also SAS &MBAM . and Firefox 3.6.3 today]
