Keeping Your Windows Me Machine Healthy

How This Tip Works

  1. Run Scandisk weekly
  2. Run Defrag at the same time each month
  3. Remove unused programs on a regular basis. Also remove any unwanted Windows Me components that you would never use via ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in the control panel.
  4. Keep a check on your hardware's websites for new drivers. Especially for graphic cards, there tends to be new graphic drivers for all of the main graphic hardware released almost once a month. We recommend that for stability you go with the new Digitally Signed drivers that your hardware makers will release once Windows Me hits the stores.
  5. Keep a weekly check on Windows Update to check if any new Windows Me patches or security fixes have been released.
  6. Clean out both your Internet Explorer Cache and your Outlook Express Cache each month to free up drive space and speed up browsing/reading mail and news.
