Always be sure to have software to protect your computer from viruses. If you’re not running a good program, your computer can easily become infected with malicious software.

Find someone who is getting rid of their desktop. Many people are getting tablets or laptops instead, and decide to sell desktops. These computers are usually in fine shape, but before you buy, make sure.
Try performing a boot check if your desktop is sluggish. Click on Start, then Run and type and execute “ms config”. This menu lets you see exactly what programs all start at the boot point of your machine restarting. Check for any programs you don’t use often and set them so that they do not load on boot up. This should make your system run faster.
