Hey thikbleepha,

 

Can you explain what you mean in more detail (or as best as you can?)

 

Thanks,

 

Darktune


It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

Words and ideas can change the world.

Use PC Decrapifier and remove all of the bloatware installed by the manufacturer.

 

Don't drop it.

 

Don't spill liquids on it.

 

Don't close the lid with anything on the keyboard.

 

Pick up the computer by the base, not the display.

 

Turn off the laptop before storing in a bag.

 

Use on a solid surface, i.e. desk.

 

Do not leave the laptop in your vehicle.

 

I have stories that go with all of the above recommendations.

Turn on Firewall. ( should be on but check anyway )

Install good antivirus.

Install Malwarebytes.

Make sure you get any updates.

Do a back up of the pc.

Create a Windows Cd ( an iso of your windows)

 

Maybe even create a slipstream disc.

PC Decrapifier? i was always wondering if it is ok to remove the "bloatwares" preinstalled from the manufacturer, looks like it's worth a try

You can remove anything you want. Obviously, if you uninstall something like the touchpad drivers, you're going to lose your touchpad, so uninstall "critically" and be engaged and thoughtful about what you're removing. Any sort of trial software can be deleted if you won't be using it.

Which type of laptop do you have? always look if the battery is charged is full just turn of the switch otherwise it would cause problem to your battery.
