Tips: Improve Your PC Performance

Try these tips to bring your old PC back to life.

Laptops do more than slow down when they're running useless tasks; they also heat up! Excess heat can damage your drive and shorten your laptop's battery significantly.

If your hard drive is filled up, moving some data to an external drive may provide a quantum leap in speed.

Some of the sneakiest malware is installed via phishing, a type of scam in which hackers pretend to be a credit or financial institution in order to get your data. Always double-check that you're on the right site.

Spring cleaning can also mean, well, actual cleaning. Wipe the collected dust from your PC's vents and fans for a more efficient, cooler-running machine.
