Things A PC User Must Know

Share this Post >>

If you are a potential pc user then you must know lots of things because due to lack of awareness there so many guys who sometimes lost their important data or their information stolen by someone. So I think, A Pc user must know the tips and tricks to boost their PC knowledge with which they can stay safe.

Here are few important things a PC user must know to stay safe:-

Record Error Message: Whenever your PC crashes, it must show an error to tell why it is being crashed. Then Immediately note down the error message or if possible take screenshot of the error message because this will help you when you will be trying to search in Google for the solution. You can put actual problem in Google and search. Also you can give this error message to the tech support, so that they can diagnose your PC easily.

Undelete the deleted files: whenever you delete files from your hard drive then actually it doesn’t get deleted completely. In fact, you just remove its index information from there which tells the PC about the location of the file. Now PC uses this location as free space. So you can get back your deleted data with the help of undelete utilities such as Recuva.  But it will work as long as you haven’t over written that file with some other data or file.

Completely Wipe The Hard Drive Before Selling It: As we discussed in previous point that we can undelete the deleted files so be careful when you are going to sell your hard drive or gifting to anyone. Before giving to any other please wipe off the hard drive completely because someone can undelete your deleted data and can use it in wrong way.

Don’t Double click everything everywhere: double clicking, open links in web browser or clicking buttons are different things. Try not to double click everywhere because you might lost something important accidently. Try to use clicking on buttons. Due to the habbit of double clicking everywhere I too got few problems such as once I submitted one form twice because of double clicking.

Beware Of viruses attached in Microsoft office files: Being a PC user I think you all must be knowing about the visual basic programming language which is in-built in Microsoft office for application support. A programmer can automate complex taks by writing powerful macros similarly malicious coders can make any dangerous macro which can steal information from your PC or can interfere with your work.

Clear Your system Tray(tray menu):- When we install apps then often park themselves in the system tray. Try to clear the tray because it put load on RAM and your PC will be work slower or system startup will be also slow down.

    There’s a lot that people just don’t get about PCs. I like the advice about undeleting data…it could definitely be helpful, or hurtful, depending on your situation.

    The double clicking advice made me laugh…I’ve seen quite a few newbies double clicking in the weirdest places :D haha.

    Hey Atish, thanks for the tips. The most important “virus” that both new users and experienced users have to look out for is a key logger, it keeps a record of all your passwords and sends it to an hacker.
