Keeping Windows Healthy with Service Packs and Windows Update

The best way to solve problems with Windows is to keep them from occurring in the first place. There are several ways you can use a little preventative maintenance to keep a Windows installation healthy:

  • Use Windows Update to install the latest Windows components.

  • Keep an eye out for patches and updates to your applications.

  • Install the latest digitally signed hardware drivers for the components built into or connected to your PC (video card, audio card, motherboard, scanner, printer, and so forth).

  • Perform system maintenance tasks such as error-checking disk drives and scanning for viruses.
