Valentine Day for Your Computer

Why not show your home computer a little love today?
After all, this often scorned mechanical device serves as:

your avatar in the business world, the postman, your billboard, your communicator, and most importantly your literal cash register!
Ok. Here’s how to show a little love:
*Do you have anti-virus software installed? Is it up to date? Have you run scans lately?
*Have you backed up your files? You don’t want to learn this the hard way, especially if your computer crashes or gets hit with a trojan. Some anti-virus software backs up your files (like Norton 360). There are some that do it for a nominal yearly fee, like Carbonite. It’s fairly painless and what’s great about these, you don’t have to think about doing it, it automatically backs up everything on your computer on a regular basis. Nice!
*Is your computer and its peripherals properly placed? For instance, if you use your printer often, move it and keep it near your computer/work area. Do you have a CPU? Put it underneath the table/desk.
*Is your computer desktop cluttered with assorted documents, pictures and files? Time to clean it up! Make new folders and sort that eye junk. You’ll save a lot of time and be more efficient.
*Take a look at your keyboard. I bet it slightly dirty! Clean those keys! Turn the keyboard upside down and knock out the crumbs from the coffee cake you had last year.

*Finally, check out this site for some cool shortcut for Google, webpages and your PC.

Show your computer a little love today, and it will love you back!
