It may be crude in appearance, but you can take a pot scrubbing pad and install it in front of you air intake vent and it will reduce the dust.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Every 3 weeks? Sounds like your area surrounding the computer is not very clean at all! Try keep the area surroudnign the computer clean and free from dust, also I recommend dc3's idea.

I was just going to suggest that sneaky!

Womens panty hose cut to size. Duct tape them into place.
Someone else recently came up with some other better ideas.
In the beginning there was the command line.

When I lived in El Paso, TX (the high desert) it was constantly dusty there. No matter what I did, the dust got into everything! I used filters on all of my intakes, sealed up all of the holes in the case, and ensured that there was more air blowing in than was being sucked out by the fans (created overpressure inside the case). Still had to clean the durned thing constantly tho'.

The more effective a filter is, the more it'll restrict the intake of air - so it's a durned if you do, durned if you don't situation.

Good luck!

I personally use Scotch-Brite pads, they can be rinsed out and reused many times. People also have luck with fabric softener sheets. Also gives your computer that fresh outdoor smell :thumbsup:
