Desk Top Computer Clean-Up

Last Update: March 03, 2021

Hi there WA families! blessing to you, hoping everyone is staying in great health.

Just wanted to share with you my busy Monday the first day of the new month of March. Today is the day I decided to clean up this Desk Top Computer that has been running as slow as a snail, and of course, I had no idea what I was doing. However, I decided that something has to be done to make things better.

I wanted a fresh start, I play round with it until I found the area setting that allows me to clean it up by resetting it, it took a long time to do the cleaning, and restart it. In the meantime, I worked with my IPad within Wealthy Affiliate and do as much work as possible, work on my post in site content, and listening to few of my lesson in booth camp for my Affiliate Website, which I hope I can complete and publish soon withing this month.

When the cleaning was done, it wiped everything from my computer, but I had all my emails and WA login and pass work written down, but media and library images I didn't upload before I did the cleaning, (very smart of me.) lol! I setup Window 10, and google Chrome fine, so once all that was in place, I felt great, the computer move much better like it is new. The next thing I notice all the image for the banners are gone, but when I click on download, and save to my file the image open there, I am so relieved. As, you can see this one I was able to insert without any issue.

This was a leap of faith in doing what I did, but it worth it, many things on there was not in use anyway, it was only taking up space, and in doing this does save me from looking into getting another desk top which I couldn't afford a new computer anytime soon.

This led me to understand a bit more about my computer, and where and how to find things and be more organized with how and where I store my files. Hopefully I will not have to go through this any time in the near future.

Sorry folks I am just releasing this post, it was late when I started it, plan to send it off yesterday, Tuesday, but my area lost internet service for almost the full day, it finally came back late in the afternoon. Anyway, I am glad it is back, and my computer is still working fine. I love it!

Thanks for your time in reading and giving your comment.

Stay safe and blessed.

Elizabeth

Hi, Elizabeth, sorry you had to go through that! Not a Tekkie, but think I remember hearing that there are "recover" commands that may help you restore some of the stuff you lost. The sooner after the cleaning, the better. Maybe someone here would know whether that could be an option for you or not. :)

Hi Elizabeth, nice work cleaning up your computer. It is amazing how a little bit of maintenance can go a long way to speeding up your computer.

I use this program called Advanced System Care at least once a month.

All the best,

Michael

Try the free version first and if you like it go for the pro. They also have a great hard drive defragmenter.

Glad you were abo to figure this out yourself. Not an easy task.
I noticed you talks about the organization of your filed. We have been challenged too because without good organization things get out of control very fast.

Do you have a separate external hard drive or something to backup your computer periodically. That can be very helpful as well. They are not too pricey and save the day should your computer hard drive fail.

Here's to a great day working on your online business today.

Hi there George! when you are push between two unescapable area, and no where to turn, that's when you got to do the next thing, and that is what I did.

I bought a few SanDisk that I upload my memory pictures on. My grandson told me to get them.

Thanks for your kindness.

Stay blessed
