Hi. Sorry if this has been asked before - I'm not much good with the search facility if it has!
I've recently been told that I shouldn't be turning off my computer each day because this causes problems. Is this correct? and if so should I log off instead of turning it off - or just leave it running as it is?
We probably use it for a couple of hours a day, maybe four or five hours at the most occasionally, and sometimes it can sit untouched (and unloved!) for a week. It's a home computer with a dial up connection, and we've got AdAware SE+, Norton Internet Security and NAV, Spybot S+D, Spyware Blaster and the Beta MS AntiSpyware all on it so I'm hoping it would be secure if the best thing to do was leave it running (but not connected to the internet)...but won't it overheat if it's running 24/7?
Sorry this isn't in computer-ese, this isn't my specialist subject, as you can tell!!
Cheers in advance for any help/advice. Moose.
