It’s sad, but in today’s time, you have to have other software programs just to keep your computer running correctly. I’m going to give you my top 3 PC repair software applications that no one should live without. Anti-Spyware program- If you don’t know what spyware is, it’s basically a program that is installed on your computer that runs in the background without your consent or knowledge. You can get spyware by surfing on the internet. Spyware programs can gather data and private information on your computer usage. It can also install other programs in the background without your knowledge and even control your internet surfing habits by creating popups and changing homepages on you. Not only is this very annoying, but it can also be very harmful. By installing an anti-spyware program, it will scan your entire computer and get rid of them instantly. Not only that, but it can also prevent future threats from happening. Anti-Virus program- This should be a given. Every day it seems there’s a new and more malicious virus roaming the internet. Some of these viruses are so horrible, they can literally crash and ruin your computer instantly. Some of the real popular ones that make the national news will even get into your email address book and send itself to everyone in your address book. That’s how viral these things can go. The only way to protect yourself is to have an anti-virus program on your computer to not only scan your computer for current viruses, but also scan all of the emails and files you download before you open them. Having an anti-virus program will not only protect you, but also protect your friends and family that you share your files with. Registry Cleaner- This is probably the one piece of software no one really thinks of. After you use your computer for about 4-6 months, you’ll notice that it will start to run slower and get kind of buggy. It’s inevitable. The more software you install and uninstall the more your registry will get bogged down and buggy. Not only that, but you’ll also notice that some of your software programs will start to get errors and not work properly. The main reason is that during all of your usage, files will become corrupt and files will also accidentally be deleted or overwritten by other programs which will start to cause your computer to get unstable and even crash. By using a registry cleaner, you can fix all of these errors and make your computer run like new. It’s literally like having your own PC technician sitting at your home. There are naturally other PC repair software programs out there that you can use, but these are the bare essentials that everyone should have on their computer.
