CCleaner is a great program that will go through your computer to delete temporary files, browser cookies, your recycling bin, and a few other nooks and crannies that you wouldn’t really be looking for as a general user.
What’s great is that CCleaner can delete stubborn cookies that can be left over after your anti-virus has removed a virus from your system.
This tool will do 2 things for you. Help keep you protected, and help keep your computer running a little faster.
4 – Ninite
Sometimes, it’s hard to tell if you’re downloading the read Adobe reader, or a fake.
Same for many other common programs – and this is where Ninite comes in.
The paid version has many more programs that the free version (and the paid version can be automated), but for those that want to use it to update some of their programs this is a great way to do it.
Just check off the programs that you want to update, and run the .exe file that it downloads. All of the programs you chose will install or update automatically, and Ninite will tell you when it’s done.
Windows updates are key. Although many find updates annoying to manage, Windows Updates plug many security holes, and keep your computer secure, and functioning properly.
Install your updates regularly, and if any updates fail fix them, or get them fixed.
For those of you running an older version of Windows that is no longer supported by Microsoft (Vista is the oldest currently supported, and will not be supported as of April 11, 2017), you will no longer receive those updates. It is recommended to upgrade to Windows 7 or newer.
