A Clean Computer = Less Frustration!
But what does a clean computer mean? Do you need to take it outside and rinse it down every once in a while, or reload the operating system to maintain its basic roots? Maybe you just need to pay someone every three months to do it for us. While some of these options may be recommended, for most cases it’s not necessary. You - yes you- can keep and maintain a fast, "clean" computer with a little information and the right technique.
