How Do I Maintain My PC

Keeping your computer in good working order is essential to get the most out of your machine. Follow the straightforward steps and tips in this article to maintain your PC and keep it running smoothly and efficiently.

Security
Making your computer safe from hackers and malware is a first and easy step to maintain your computer, and keep it running smoothly. Hackers and viruses can access your hard drive without you knowing, through email attachments and even some sites you visit. Websites are not such a concern because most modern browsers will display a warning if you're opening a site that has been identified as placing malware on your computer.

Fix a DLL Error

Are you getting a DLL error when you go to open a program? Or a warning that says your files are missing or corrupted? These warnings are routine for Windows users, and are easy to fix. A DLL error stands for Dynamic Link Library, and the error refers to missing or incomplete programs.

What Causes DLL Errors?
DLL errors can be caused by uninstalled programs you thought you’d removed. When you use the Windows Uninstall feature (Start -> Control Panel -> Add Or Remove Programs), occasionally the uninstall process will remove a file that other programs use to function normally. Also, a bad installation can cause files to be corrupted before you even use the program. These are common causes for DLL Errors that can be fixed by a free and recommended hard disk scan.

Quick Fixes For Internet Explorer (IE) Bugs

Here are a few steps you can take to improve IE stability and security. The goal is to disable parts of IE that cause the security problems.

Go to Tools -> Internet Options, and select the Security tab. You will see a row of icons showing the levels of security levels IE works to, from the whole Internet, to Restricted Sites. The first thing you can do, is set the default security level to High by pushing 'Default level' and dragging the slider to High.

Select the Custom Level button if you want more control over your IE settings. You probably want to try the default High setting for a few days, and if you notice IE is too restricted with websites it opens, you may consider changing the setting or using the Custom settings.
