I am a new user and need to make sure my computer is running OK. Is there anything I should check? Do I really need virus protection? McAfee slowed me down so I got rid of it. My RAM is at 31%. My memory says 122GB. Everything looks OK. But like I said, I have no idea what I am doing. How do I check for problems, or will the computer tell me if I have any? Thanks! Any advice will be appreciated.
