MAY 2005 – “PC CHECKUP – HOW TO KEEP YOUR PC
Many computer users do not realize that their PC is like a machine
and it needs maintenance from time to time. Okay, technically a
computer is not a machine, but it seems like one! It has a mechanism
(processor, memory and software) to produce an output, it needs
fuel (electricity), it needs preventative maintenance (new batteries,
fans, dust removal, firewall, anti-spyware, removal of unnecessary
files etc), and it needs lots and lots of tender loving care!
This month Ojas and Rivati Sangoski from PC Series Computers in
Bowral will discuss aspects of computer maintenance and housekeeping
in a presentation called “PC Checkup.” In a second presentation
Ojas will discuss new technology, what is happening now and what
Ojas has a set of 7 small books available - the PC Series, a guide
to better computing - and each has easy to follow step by step instructions.
There is also a step by step guide to Powerpoint - PowerPoint Step
by Step - as well as three Windows XP books for XP users - Windows
XP Secrets, volumes 1, 2 and 3. All are reasonably priced and will
be discounted for this presentation. Well known and respected PCUG
member Terry Bibo has reviewed some of these books and commented
“My response is that they are Superb! Your choice of topic,
layout, and presentation are a pleasure to see” and “Congratulations
on a very fine product.” Don’t miss this informative
