WorkStation performance and security
Time has an effect on everything, including your computer. Not only does hardware start to show its age, but your computer’s performance tends to slow down as well.
If this sounds like your system, don’t race out for a new computer just yet. Your existing computer can be resurrected from its current state.
Whether your computer is slow or just not working properly, there are a number of things that can be done to turn your “turtle” into a “jackrabbit” again.
Let’s start with the basics. DUST. You got it. Mother Nature’s way of sending you back to the pen & paper era. DUST is a computer’s worst enemy. Electronic components create heat as they operate and therefore, require adequate ventilation to function properly. Dust on the other hand, acts like a huge insulator, preventing the heat from escaping. Not only does this make the computer work that much harder, but it also slows it down.
In addition to Dust, the operating system can become unstable and fragmented as well. This can, and often does impede performance. By cleaning up the system, and optimizing its performance, it can be brought back to life. With a clean system, comes better security; and with better security, comes a cleaner system. They run hand in hand.
The security of your system is directly related to how clean and optimized your system is. Generally speaking, the slower a system is, the more mal-ware (Malicious Software) is present on the system.
