Similar to a car, your PC won’t work indefinitely without some planned maintenance. As you use your PC at some stage you will experience data corruption, maintenance issues and virus infections. Data in the hard drive becomes ‘fragmented’, simply put data is stored in various locations of the hard disk rather than in a “contiguous” sequence.
You might have experienced your PC losing its phenomenal “as new” processing speed over time, applications crashing, documents corrupting and the registry informing of irrelevant entries. These are issues that are common and develop when people don’t maintain and repair their registry and director structure. Virus threats, spyware and malware are just another breed of threats that require proactive software to protect the operating system.
Among the many PC repair software suites for repair, maintenance and protection most have the same common features necessary for system maintenance & protection. There are many PC repair software available to service your daily system maintenance and protection needs. Good & efficient repair software will take a few minutes to check your configuration and develop a report on potential errors in the registry, file system and other compromised system areas.
PC repair software will use smart algorithms to scan your registry, identify errors, analyze them and make necessary repairs after confirmation. The repair software may also offer you to make a backup of the OS and the system configuration (known as a Restore Point) to restore your system to its previous state in case of an operating system crash. One very important feature that most registry software doesn’t have is a defragmenter for your registry and system files. Although there is a disk defragmenter in the windows system tools, there is a critical need for a registry defragmenter also – and good registry optimizer software will have this capability.
The good thing about PC repair software is that they are easy to use, even for the novice PC user. You can easily install and operate them without any hassles. The software takes care of monitoring and optimizing PC performance letting you go about your business.
One very common error that a PC repair application rectifies is the registry entries of previously uninstalled applications. These entries cause slow system startup and conflicts when operating other programs. Repair software also recovers missing drivers, and analyzes your system directory & file structure to optimize program execution and performance. All this is automated requiring a minimum involvement by the user.
Until now we have emphasized the importance of system and registry optimizer software. Antivirus & spyware software is a critical requirement in any PC today. There are more virus threats today than there are people on the earth, with new ones being developed every day. It would be irresponsible to neglect the security of your family PC.
The best antivirus software usually gives security coverage against malware, virus threats, spyware and adware. Most antivirus software is loaded with multiple features that scan email, registry, downloads and electronic documents for threats. Generally, antivirus software is loaded with features like stealth mode monitoring, browser monitoring, automatic updates, file recovery and system backup, etc.
The best internet security software protects against multiple threats, since there are threats that can infiltrate your system without permission. Similarly, adware & spyware are highly capable of corrupting registry and steal your personal information. An up to date security system will be ready for all such threats.
A major feature of the best Internet software is a firewall. The built in firewall operates in ‘stealth mode’ or invisible mode, monitoring all internet activity, including email, internet browser activity, cookies, downloaded files, active-x controls, etc. When surfing the net you are most prone to virus threats, spyware, adware and other malware. A proper firewall will protect you from most common threats, while a high profile internet monitor will keep almost all threats out. When browsing, the Internet security software will flag suspect websites when it detects threats from them.
In conclusion, using a good & effective PC repair and maintenance software suite ensures:
• Malicious threats don’t infiltrate your PC – or can be removed.
• Registry files are updated and checked for errors.
• File system is optimized and defragmented.
• Old files and folders can be removed.
All of which will save you time, frustration and expense in the ‘not so’ long run. Try not using doing any of this and see what happens!
