hi!

I have a few questions!

should you always download the windows updates and how often should you do it?

I ask because i have heard stories of when people have downloaded an update but then began having problems.

Also how often should you run clean up? Everyday. once a week etc?!!!

Thanks guys!

run updates once a week or no less than once a month (ms releases updates on a regular schedule....I want to say the second tuesday of each month)

Download all crticial updates--others are optional

Yes, there are problems, but fewer problems then if you do no update

Clean up....never run it. It is not that good of clean up. It cannot hurt, though.

Defrag and run chkdsk monthly
