What kind of maintenance do I need to do on my PC to keep it running fast?

1. Clean out dust and debris periodically. Vacuum the vents, fans, and air intakes to remove any dust buildup, which can cause overheating and slowdown your PC.

2. Run regular anti-virus and anti-malware software scans. This will help identify and remove any potential threats that can slow down your system.

3. Uninstall unused or rarely used programs taking up space on your hard drive.

4. Update your drivers and operating system regularly. Outdated drivers and OS versions may run inefficiently and lead to slowdown.

5. Defragment your hard drive. Over time, your computer’s hard drive will become fragmented, meaning pieces of files are spread out over different areas of the drive. This leads to slower read/write speeds and can be corrected by running a disk defragmentation program.
