One of the most important things you can do for your PC is to keep it updated and maintained. Just as you would go to a doctor for a checkup, or take your car to the mechanic to get car maintenance performed, you want to make sure your PC gets the proper care.
Practicing proper PC preventative maintenance can save you the time, money and pain involved with getting your PC repaired. This is key in keeping your PC as healthy as possible as well as extending its life. Spyware and viruses are not the only threats you should be concerned with, but also things such as dirt, dust, pet hair and smoke can be harmful to your PC.

Cleaning the PC physically (inside and out)
