End of Year Computer Clean up

As the old year comes to a close and the new year is just beginning please take some time to clean up your computer files. Create file folders in you’re My Documents folder which are reflective of your organizational intentions. Move, copy & paste or drag & drop many or most of the myriad files you might have strung all over your desktop because you haven’t known where to put them into the folders you create to keep your files organized in you’re My Documents folder.

Then take a few minutes to do Disk Clean and Disk Defragmenter processes located on your System Tools folder in Accessories from your “All Programs” clickable on your START button.

Go to your web browser (Internet Explorer, IE or whichever one you are using) and delete temporary files, and other junk files from your browser memory.

Go to  and check your computer updates to make certain you have the most current updates to your Windows and other Microsoft products you may have.

Go to the All Programs list and see what you have loaded on your computer to update from a third party vendor like Adobe Reader 9 or whatever is most current, and any other programs which may need to be updated.

This is especially needful if you have a laptop which you turn on and off in between uses or if you do not have Automatic Updates turned on in your computer.

If you have any questions about any of these processes, press the back arrow to find my contact information or go to .
