What My IT Guy Immediately Puts on Our Computers

As most of us small chambers can’t afford an actual IT guru, here’s what our computer repair guy puts on every client’s new computer. If your computer has been lagging, I recommend immediately doing a sweep with the first three.

 

Security & Cleaning

Run once a week or as you notice lagging. (Honestly I’m lazy and still only do these once a month.)

  1. SUPERAntiSpyware (Free Edition) 
    He says that this is better than Malwarebytes & Crap Cleaner combined (what I used to use).
  2. Disk Cleanup
    A default program on your Windows computer. If you have a new version of windows with the search box on the bottom left, you can just search ‘disk cleanup.’ Otherwise, click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup.
  3. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
    Even though SUPERAntiSpyware is better, I still say 2 is better than 1.

IT Computer Shortcut files

Shortcuts

Just handy things that he likes to keep in one place to quickly get to.

  1. Control Panel
  2. Internet Options
  3. Microsoft Office backup

 

Bonus tip: Andy also recommends restarting your computer daily – or just turning it off (not putting it to sleep) when you leave the office.
