Has this ever happened to you?

You attempt to install software on your computer, you think everything is ok, but when you restart your computer it doesn’t boot correctly and you get some weird message on a blue or black background?

So, have you ever wondered how often you should shut down your computer and then restart it? I don't know about all of you, but there's always been a question in my mind about how many times a week (or day or month, etc.) I should be restarting my computer. I mean, does every computer need a certain amount of rest time or are they more durable than we may think? Well, allow me to explain some of your options!

I know it’s been a while but I’m back now, and today I am offering advice about some things you can do to maintain your computer a little better so as to avoid potential problems.

But, what happens if you do all of those things and you still aren’t satisfied with your computer’s speed? Well…that usually means you need more memory. Now, don’t get confused. When most people hear that they need more memory what’s the first thing they do?

I recently read an article about Japan launching a satellite into space to test technology that would bring “super high-speed Internet" - speeds of up to 1.2 gigabytes per second to homes and businesses around the world. I then thought, “What does that mean to the average person?” Most people know the names of different types of internet access: DSL, Dial-up, Cable, but don’t really understand the true difference between them.

As I mentioned in the previous paragraph there are three main types commercial of internet access, DSL, Dial-up, and Cable. So…what makes them different? Without getting too technical, I’ll tell you...
