January is a great time for your fresh start for the New Year, as mentioned in earlier article regarding getting ourselves organized for the New Year! Like most of you reading this article your computer is an important tool in your life and this is an excellent time to clean it up.
It is a good time to clean up those files, directories, archive, and defragment, get rid of those unwanted files, cookies, spyware, malware, adware, and back up your computer! Since I use my computers several hours each day, I have a computer doctor give each computer lots of TLC three or four times a year.
We have three cats in our home (Isaac, Sassy and Peaches) so vacuuming my home office every other week is a necessity - to ensure my fan intakes are cleaned at the same time. This also keeps 'dust-bunnies' to a minimum!
