Stop the headaches
Preventative maintenance keeps many of the bad things from happening. I like to spend time on improving security hygiene, initial setup, backups, and password management. An ounce of prevention, as they say.
If you’re tired of IT emergencies and would prefer to keep most of them from happening in the first place, let’s chat.
Uninstall any software you don’t need and update the software you do need. Patch third-party software using a free tool like the Home Updater offered by PatchMyPC.
Regularly backup your important files to an external hard drive and/or to the cloud.
Create a computer account for daily use and a separate administrative account for making system changes. Don’t log in with an administrative user account.
Antivirus / Ad block
The antivirus on your Windows 10 computer is sufficient for most people. You should install an ad blocker like uBlock Origin to keep annoyances at bay.
