PC Running Perfectly

Get Rid of Malware

Malware is similar to a virus, but it can cause an increase of damage to computers. For example, malware can infect a computer and then cause the cooling system to stop working, resulting in a computer that is overheated. After this, the computer’s hard drive will no longer work. The only solution is usually to buy a new computer.

Instead of dealing with this hassle, download a free program that is designed to specifically get rid of malware. Once the malware on a computer has been eliminated, many users notice an increase in speed and a brighter picture.

Keep it Clean

Cleaning a PC should be a part of every people weekly dusting routine. Computers can accumulate a bit of dust on the screen, keyboards and, for desk top computers, on the hard drive. Once this dust makes its way inside of a computer, it can have a disastrous impact. Dust is also one of the most common causes of computers overheating.

Fan Filters

Specialized products can help cut dust that has the potential to make it into the inner parts of a computer’s hardware. A variety of 120 mm fan filters are available for computer owners to purchase. The size does not have to be 120 mm, as the size may vary depending on the computer. It is vital to contact a specialist for help with their product if the computer owner is unsure of whether a 120 mm, 80 mm or other size would be best.

These help prevent dust from ever getting inside of computers in the first place, eliminating the risk of damage caused by dust, and are available in different sizes. If a computer does not have in internal fan, a filter of about 120 mm will usually fit inside the grille of the computer, and serves the same purpose.

Keep it cool

Cooling systems are important for maintaining the performance of a pc. Computers that get to hot on a regular basis are at risk for thermal damage due to overheating. This risk is increased if there is dust inside the computer. Make sure that computers stay cool by storing them in a cool place and avoid leaving them in areas that are exposed to increased temperatures, such as the trunk of a car.

Types Of Connectors

VGA Connector

It’s common in many computers. It’s also used in many videos. For ideal results you should use a 15-pin connector on a device that you are sure of the type of video that it can put in and out. The connector is mostly used in projectors.

Speakon Connector

This is the latest connector used in audio connections. The unit is available in 2, 4 and 8 pole iterations. For audio applications, you should use 2 and 4 pole. The good side with this unit is that it takes in high current signals. When connecting it you should connect the female plugs to the male panel socket. Due to this connection, you should use the connectors in live sound applications where you should use them in connecting power amplifiers to loudspeakers.

XLR Connector

This is another balanced connection that is used in many pro audio applications. The unit has a barrel design that is approximately 2cm in diameter, with about 3-7 pins or holes. You can effectively use it in audio applications where you use the 3 pin XLR.

Balance Jack Connector

It aids in carrying two channels of audio where the tip is the pointy end, the ring is the section after the first black hoop, and the sleeve is after the second black hoop. The tip and ring of the connector carry the left and right channel signals while the sleeve acts as the common earth.

This connector has a wide range of applications. For example, it’s used as headphone output, piano, recording equipment, mixing decks, guitar amps, hi-fi equipment and recording equipment.

Cloud Computing

Security Exposure

Security is cited as the number one objection to Cloud for 49% of organizations (IDC 2017). Should you be concerned? The security investments made by the major Cloud providers is significant and has created cloud platforms in which security breaches, due to vendor error are rare. In fact, the Cloud has proven to be more secure than most non-cloud environments.

Network Response

A key detractor to cloud for customers in Western Canada is the worry that network connectivity will be insufficient to provide the type of response time and security that end users are accustomed to. With the major public Cloud providers located in Eastern Canada, it is understandable that network connectivity options should be well understood before proceeding. Several networking options exist to address the need for high bandwidth, security and connectivity to Cloud, including solutions based in Saskatchewan.

Service Availability

Service availability, including response time and user downtime, is a concern due to the perceived loss of control over the computing environment. To mitigate this concern, public Cloud vendors provide service levels for all their products with financial credits provided if they are not achieved. The robust engineering of the Cloud environment is such that high availability is consistently achieved. In a worst-case scenario, organizations can further protect critical applications by configuring them to automatically failover to alternate data centres should a Cloud data centre go offline.

Cloud Costs

There is a general perception that services in the Cloud are more expensive than in the non-Cloud environment. This is often raised when the comparison between Cloud and non-Cloud platforms does not accurately reflect all the costs that make up the non-Cloud infrastructure.

With all the non-Cloud costs in the table above considered, there’s an almost 50% reduction in support and maintenance costs when the Cloud is chosen. When doing a financial comparison or Cloud ROI, it’s also important to take into account the increased revenue that will take place as you drive your digital transformation results using Cloud services.

Getting PC to Speed Up

• Detecting a virus-when downloading things from the internet you need to check on spyware and malware because when you download files from the internet you can also accidentally download a virus. If you have a lot of viruses in your computer’s brain it could cause you to have slow computer problems. The solution is to install good antivirus software and run it to get all of the malware out of your computer. You should also only download from reputable websites if possible and keep your virus software up to date. Have it run every day at a time you will not be using the computer to check for malware and any other viruses.

• Limited space-when downloading things from the internet most people will store it on the hard drive. If there is too much stuff on the hard drive it will slow your computer down. Delete any software programs, entertainment media files, and games that you no longer use and are just taking space on your hard drive. Once this is done your computer will be faster.

• Get rid of temporary files-there is generally a lot of unwanted stuff that is stored in your cache memory so make it a habit to delete all of the temporary files, history of websites you visited, and cookies at least once every two weeks. All of these unnecessary files can take up a lot of space on your computer. To use these slow computer solutions go to your Start Menu and select run. In the box there type (%temp%). This will show you all of your temporary files. You can select and delete what you want.

• Repair your windows registry-approximately ninety percent of all slow computer problems are because of window registry errors. Here there is a track record of all of the software found in your computer. With your frequent downloading people tend to pitch in many software entries that are unwanted resulting in a slow computer. You can increase your computer’s performance by using a registry cleaning program.
