Some hard drives and processors produce enough heat to burn you if you were to touch them. And that much heat is just as bad for a computer as it is for you. Computers use fans to cool their components. These fans draw in the cooler outside air and circulate it throughout the case. But along with the cooler air comes dust. Dust is notorious for getting into the fan’s ball bearings, and once the dust mixes with the lubricants it forms a near solid and causes the fan to stop spinning.Backup: Backup Data backup USB keychain drive Online backup External hard drive GFI Backup software System backup Windows backup Acronis software Cloud backup DropboxFirewalls and passwords: Firewalls and passwords Encrypt your wireless network Make sure a family member knows your email password.
