Also for my convenience, after years of setting up my PCs and those of an impressive number of friends and acquaintances, I am happy to publish some notes on what should not be missing from a well-made PC.
We are talking about a Windows 7 / Windows 10 PC (I have never liked Windows 8, I have a stable version of Windows 7 PRO running continuously since ... since 2011) And yes, I have been using the same PC since then. I will change it as soon as the pandemic ends, but let's begin.
Please note: this is an amateur guide. But the fact is that ALL the PCs I made or fixed for my friends are stable and remain stable ... despite everything ... 😊
First thing you can't miss in a PC is a good antivirus. Light, fast and reliable, and not annoying...
My choice has always been AVG or AVAST, which today are the same company. I have little to say: they have never let me down, they are light and they work.
The second thing to do is to separate the operative system from the data. Click onto this link to see, in detail, how to do it.
