Last episode we talked about cleaning the physical hardware. This episode I talk a little about how to clean up your PC from a software standpoint.
I suggested using Speccy (http://speccy.com), using this utility to evaluate whether you should upgrade or replace your PC.
If your PC is more than 5 years old it needs replaced. I use the guideline of 3-5 cycles. It just depends on the use case. Laptops I recommend every 3 years, but desktops can go up to 5 years.
If you have a computer that is running Windows Vista, then upgrade to Windows 7. Your computer will perform better, with Windows 7 than it does with Windows Vista. Always. Always. Purchase the Professional version of Windows for business use. Trust me it will save headaches in the long run. If you choose not to purchase Professional, it more time and license money to upgrade to Professional after the fact.
