Ransomware has made big headlines lately with the widespread WannaCry attack impacting numerous organizations and individuals around the world. It's a good (if awful) reminder that having security software actively protecting your computer is important -- yet many people still don't take that step.
You probably use your computer every day, for a multitude of different tasks -- but you might not think much about maintaining it. Antivirus is important, of course, but so is regular cleaning of your system, as accumulated junk files and unnecessary startup and registry items can start to bog your PC down.
Is your computer freezing up or behaving strangely? Are you having trouble running the latest games? There's a good chance outdated or corrupted drivers are the cause. You could fix these issues manually, but not only is that time-consuming, it's risky -- there are a lot of insecure driver update websites out there. Download the wrong thing and you could crash your PC.
Do you struggle with spelling or punctuation, or just have trouble expressing your ideas as clearly as you'd like?
