Hi, I just discovered this site a few days ago, and I am going to try some of the suggestions I have read, starting with cleaning the inside of my computer. As soon as I read that having a computer in a house with pets contributes to a dirty computer, I knew that applied to me, because I have 3 dachshunds (that's where I got my display name), 1 cat, 1 bird, and 1 turtle. It looks like there is a lot of good info on this site, so if I'm still having problems after cleaning, I'll be back to try some other tips. Happy Labor Day!

Welcome doxiemom. Glad you have been reading here for information. I would suggest reading New User Orientation also. Turtle hair shouldn't be a problem for your computer.

One of the problems with pet hair is that it often clogs the fan openings, so check them regularly. If you have a desktop, it often helps if you locate the case as far from the floor as you reasonably can.
