General Tips for Windows users
   
    Internet Security recommendations  
    Please ensure you have the following 3 forms of protection:  
       
 
1.
Anti-virus software (free here)  
       
 
2.
a Firewall, including Port and Application protection  
    (DO NOT rely on the free Windows Firewall to fully protect you  
    as this only provides port protection and a little more)  
    *Firewall test HERE  
       
 
3.
Anti-spyware software (free here) (free here)  
       
    NB: Any Software package that does three or four jobs, i.e.  
    Anti-virus, Firewall and Anti-Spyware, Spam filter etc etc etc  
    MAY make your computer slower,  
    below are some examples:  
    Mcafee Internet Security  
    Norton Anti-Virus/ Internet Security/System Security/Works  
       
    (Separate Anti-virus, Firewall and Anti-Spyware are  
    usually more robust,  
    because if one program fails the other two usually still  
    run whereas with norton/mcafee, one failing module can  
    cause the whole security system to fail, norton/mcafee also  
    over-ride the MS Windows protection once installed.  
    So if norton / mcafee fails on your PC,  
    you could end up having no protection at all). Be Aware!  
       
       
    For information about the health of your PC, visit the link below:  
    BBC Click - PC Health Check (external Link)  
       
       
    Flat Screen / LCD Monitor or Laptop / Notebook Users:  
       
   

ALWAYS set your Screen to Power off,

 
       
    your LCD screen has components that WILL wear out,  
       
    Please Don't use an animated or picture screen-saver,  
       
    as that will make you need a replacement more quickly.  
       
       
    Laptop / Notebook Users:  
       
    Your Laptop / Notebook Battery has a Limited Life,  
       
    If your system will run without the Battery installed,  
       
    remove the Battery & just use the Mains Power/Charger Unit,  
       
    or if not, charge your battery to Full then unplug the Charger;  
       
    Never leave the Laptop / Notebook plugged into the Charger  
       
    all the time with the battery installed, only when Charging  
       
    the Battery.  
       
       
   
Local Computer Services Advice:
 
   
Backing up All your important info,
 
   
pictures, videos, documents, music etc
 
   
BEFORE
 
   
attempting ANY of the system maintenance tasks below.
 
   
All the below system maintenance tasks are microsoft utilities,
 
   
and therefore Local Computer Services accepts
 
   
no responsibility for any subsequent problem or data lose
 
   
occurring during utilisation of the Microsoft system maintenance tasks.
 
       
       
    Error checking your Hard Disk (Thorough Check)
    (use this Method a minimum of once per month
    or straight after a unscheduled re-boot or system crash
    or always before a Defragmentation)  
   
 
a
Open "My Computer"
 
b
Right Click over "Local Drive C:" or its Icon
    (or the Hard Disk you're checking, e.g. "Local Drive E:")
 
c
Left Click on "Properties" at the bottom of the pop-up menu
   
    when the "Properties" window opens
 
d
Left Click on the "Tools" tab near the top
 
e
Then Left Click "Check now..." in the Error-checking section
   
    when the small new window opens
 
f
Put a "tick" in both boxes:
    "tick" (Automatically fix file system errors)
    "tick" (Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors)
       
    (Only "tick" Automatically fix file system errors to run the  
    Standard Check, this will only take about 5-20 minutes)  
       
       
 
g
and Left Click on "Start" on the small window
   
 
h
Another message will appear, Left Click on "Yes" (win xp)
    or Left Click on "Schedule disk check" (win vista / win 7 / win 8)  
    (the message in xp says you can only do a System Hard Disk check
    when Windows is not full running, because it needs exclusive
    access to the Hard Disk been checked and will run on next restart)
   
 
i
then Left Click the "Start" Button in the corner of your screen
 
j
Left Click "Turn off Computer..."
 
k
Left Click on "Restart"
   
    As your computer re-starts, before starting full Windows Xp
    a blue screen should appear, giving a Ten (10) second countdown
    please don't press any keys at this stage,
    wait for the Hard Disk check to begin
   
    (then go make a tea or something,
    average checking times for a 20Gb Hard Disk: 15 - 80 mins)
   
    Once the Hard Disk check has finished the computer may:
    a) Re-boot / re-start then load Windows
    b) immediately load Windows
    Both these are normal, any errors should have been repaired,
    unless serious errors have occurred on your Hard Disk Drive,
    in that case, back-up your personal data (photos, favorites, etc),
    to CD / DVD or Removable Storage Device and have the
    Hard Disk Drive replaced by qualified service personnel as soon
    as possible. ;0)
       
       
       
    Defrag - Defragmenting your Hard Disk  
    (use this Method a minimum of once per week  
    or straight after installing / uninstalling software)  
    Only use Defrag AFTER error checking your Hard Disk  
    (Thorough Check) (Method as above)  
       
    Hard Disk information is stored randomly, a program like  
    MS Word may be a 1000 individual storage units randomly  
    placed on the Hard disk, defragmentation moves the stored  
    information into a more quickly accessed format,  
    all 1000 storage blocks in a 'line' instead of randomly allocated.  
    Defragmentation can speed up file access and therefore  
    speed up your computer.  
       
    (Recommendation:  
    Run Defrag overnight or when you're not using your computer,  
    close ALL other programs and unplug your internet connection).  
       
 
a
Open "My Computer"  
 
b
Right Click over "Local Drive C:" or its Icon  
    (or the Hard Disk you're checking, e.g. "Local Drive E:")  
 
c
Left Click on "Properties" at the bottom of the pop-up menu  
     
    when the "Properties" window opens  
 
d
Left Click on the "Tools" tab near the top  
 
e
Then Left Click "Defragment now..." in the Defragmentation section  
       
    When the new window opens  
    Left Click on "Defragment"  
       
    (then just leave it running,  
    average defrag times for a 20Gb Hard Disk: 15 - 80 mins,  
    a 120Gb Hard Disk, badly fragmented, can take over 10 Hours).  
       
       
       
    System File Check utility (SFC)  
       
    Run the system file check utility to replace any missing or  
    corrupted windows system files.  
   
(You MAY need the MS Windows CD/DVD
 
   
to use this utility)
 
 
a
Click "Start"  
 
b
Click "Run"  
 
c
Click into the "Open:" text box and  
    type "cmd" Press ok or Enter,  
 
a black window will open on your desktop, click this window  
 
d
type "SFC /SCANNOW" and press Enter  
 
a small dialog should appear in the centre of your desktop,  
 
this is the system file checker running, please wait as  
 
this may take 10-35 minutes, have a tea or something,  
 
e
Re-start your computer when this utility finishes (Disappears).  
       
       
   
 
       
   
Always keep your Windows updated
