Why it's Important to Tune Up your Software!

May 5, 2021 | By Ryan Deckard

There are many different ways to keep your PC and operating systems up and running optimally over a long period of time. One of the most successful ways of doing that is updating your software and tuning up your computer! 

Hello and welcome to the Deckard Tech Computer Solutions Blog. Today, we are going to be talking about how to keep your computer running optimally for as long as possible with as few issues and hiccups as possible. One of the best ways to go about doing this is staying on top of your software updates and tuning up your computer. There are reasons why your smartphones get so many updates. While many of these updates might not be received well by many iOS and Samsung users, the software will remain at the latest and greatest that it is available to its user. This will keep you up to date and continue offering you the best service possible that your provider can offer. There is also a reason why tune-ups are so important. Just like any machine or device, cleaning it up and flushing out the bad can make it last a long time, sometimes longer than its predicted shelf life. Have you noticed that when you take care of your classic cars that they tend to look beautiful and last much longer? To achieve this, you have to go the extra mile to provide the care that it needs. This includes frequent tune-ups, so why would it be any different for your computer? 

Why Should You Tuneup Your Computer? 
When someone refers to a computer tune-up, they are talking about improving the overall performance of the computer itself. The process can include fixing any computer error, removing any temporary files you might have forgotten about and can uninstall computer programs! Remember, just like anything you use very frequently, your PC needs maintenance. Some recommend that a monthly tuneup will suffice for helping your computer run smoothly, but if you use your PC very frequently, you might need to do a tuneup more often than that to keep your computer up and running to your standards. PC tuneups should fragment the hard drive, repair any issues it might be having with the windows registry, delete duplicate files, delete unused files, and free up storage space! Even though you might be running at what you think is best on your Windows 10 PC, a PC tuneup is so important, and here's why! 

What Are The Benefits of Software Updates? 
Sometimes they happen at the most inconvenient times and sometimes they can change what you love about your operating systems, but there are many reasons why software updates are so important and shouldn't be ignored or slept on! It is easy to forget or to skip an update because they usually appear when you're right in the middle of something and you can't, or don't, want to stop. Every single software update can't be that important, right? Please reconsider that thought! Avoiding or ignoring an update can keep your computer's doors wide open for hackers to get into your private information. Choosing not to update your software can leave small little holes open on your PC or giant doors left open on the hard drive of major corporations, that if found, can lead to giant security breaches and major examples of cybercrime. Many cyber attacks take advantage of these holes and weaknesses of software that has not been updated and is now weak to the ever-growing strength of cybercriminals. Regular updates, even the ones that annoy us the most, can be what keep your computer strong and in competition with the world of cyber criminalization, which grows and evolves just as quickly as the world of technology around it.
