An Easy Computer Repair How-To

free return to house on haunted hill It can be pretty frustrating when your computer freezes up, slows down, or just plain crashes on you while you’ll in the middle of using it. Unfortunately, it happens to the best of us and knowing what caused it, let alone how to fix it, can be a discouraging chore. Here’s a list of the most common causes and how you can fix them.

Viruses
This one can be your number 1 reason. Viruses can be found as .exe files and are basically nasty software specifically made to destroy your computer. The best way to conquer viruses is to use preventative measures. The first thing you should do, if you haven’t, is install an anti-virus software. What most people don’t know is that a lot of viruses out their are specifically made to avoid the most popular, big name software out there. Personally, I use PC Tools – a lot of people swear by it. After installing your anti-virus software, make sure to scan your computer regularly. You can also set up the software to do it automatically for you.

Another easy way you can prevent viruses is to just be aware of what you download.

A Corrupted Registry

The number 2 biggest reason for computer problems is a corrupted registry. What your registry does is store all your computer’s configurations and settings. The registry is a bit complex and something you don’t want to fool with. Mess with one of the many .dat or .ini files might damage your computer to where it may not be usable. You don’t even need to open it to corrupt it. What happens is every time you install or uninstall something, an entry is added to the registry. After some time, these entries build up, slowing down your computer. In most cases, all that needs to be done is a simple registry scan to bring it back to health.

After a period of time, your hard drive can become fragmented which will slow down your computer. An easy fix is to just deframent it every other week or so. You can find it on your Start menu >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Disk Defragmenter.

An Overheated Computer
Computers can produce a lot of heat, especially if it’s left on for a long period of time. A easy way to conquer this is to just turn off your computer for a lit bit and give it time to “cool off”. If you find your computer to overheat a lot, you might want to look into getting a larger cooling fan for your computer.

If the problem isn’t clear, just go through the list above. Chances are you’ll find the problem and fix it. It can’t get any easier than that.
