TECH TIP - Why you should Reboot your computer once a week

Have you ever noticed an issue magically goes away after you restart or shut down your computer? It’s an odd thing right (if you don’t know the reasons). Those of us who understand what this does will tell you that it is really important to do a reboot often and at least once a week.

Why? Well here are a few reasons:

  1. It flushes the memory – when you use different programs /processes it takes up Random Access Memory (RAM). Memory use degrades performance so doing a restart stops all tasks including the ones that slows you down;

  2. It halts memory leaks – Programs that don’t close properly take up memory (memory leakage) rebooting is like a rest;

  3. It corrects software glitches – a restart will reset your software and desktop environments eliminating any glitches in your program; and

  4. It can solve internet & Bluetooth connection issues – If your PC drops the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, restarting can re-connect them.
