Why You Should Reboot (Restart) Your Computer Every Day
For some Windows updates to take effect on your computer, you must reboot. By rebooting every day, you ensure that all recent updates are applied properly.
Other benefits of rebooting daily:
• Rebooting frees up resources such as memory and deletes temporary files used by various software. These “temp” files and consumption of other resources can cause your computer to slow down and in extreme cases even come to a complete halt. You will often find that simply rebooting your computer can cause it to run faster and with less problems.
• During rebooting, Windows performs various diagnostics and system checks in the background. Sometimes if you feel that your computer is simply “acting strange”, a reboot may solve the problem. In fact, rebooting can pre-emptively fix some problems before they occur.
So remember – to keep your computer running smoothly, please reboot every day.
