When did you last tune up your PC? Never? Maintaining your computer, whether it runs OS X or Windows, is essential to keeping it fast – and keeping you sane. If you tune up on a regular basis, you'll probably be much happier with your desktop or laptop's performance.
What do you get out of a PC tune-up?
Tuning up your PC usually makes it quicker and more responsive, helps it run efficiently, and in some respects, extends the life of the machine. You'll be less likely to replace your computer if it continues to run just fine (well, until some new lighter and thinner, or faster and bigger eye candy wets your tech appetite). As with any other complex machinery, if you don't perform basic upkeep on your computer, you'll notice over time that it isn't performing as well as it did before.
In many ways, tuning up a PC keeps it internally organized. Essential files are managed appropriately, junk gets tossed, and parts of the system that were starting to get messy or torn apart (fragmented) are patched back together again.
How often should you tune up?
How often you tune up your computer is largely a matter of preference. In most cases, you should probably tune up at least once every three months. If your happy with your computers performance than you can extend that out to 6 months.
If calendars and to-do lists are your thing, set up a recurring reminder or appointment.
