I’m a computer science major but my degree is not going to teach me much most of the things that I want to know about computers—ain’t that a blip?
Anyway, its not going to teach me anything about Web Design and what I learned in vocational school has atrophied and is withering. None of my classes will touch on hardware and actually assembling a computing machine.
Its up to me to make sure that I learn all that I need and want to know about computers. Something that I want to learn;
How to Build a Computer
How to Build and Maintain a Website
How to Monetize my WebSite
How to Install a Harddrive
How to Modify a computer
How to use Linux properly

I did it! I was trying to clean the junk off my computer so it would run better and faster so I started searching file names and programs online to find out what they were and if they were necessary and if not they got deleted! This was time-consuming but it was a boring weekend anyway and well worth my time and effort! Also I had an update that I could not get installed so I went to the Microsoft website and solved that problem too! They have a great, helpful website by the way! Now everything is up to date, and I’m reaping the fruits of my labor because my computer is running great! I’m proud of myself because I don’t know that much about computers and with some time and research, I was able to do this without too many complications and without using any of those untrusted online programs! 3 years ago
Any ideas where/how I can learn to "clean out" my computer to regain speed and reduce crashes? 3 years ago
My computer is sooo slow and I know it needs to be “cleaned out” and I have no idea where to start. I don’t even know HOW to learn more about computers!? I guess I’ll try the good ol’ internet but for some reason I just can’t make sense out of the stuff I’ve read on there so far. Maybe I could try a book from the library? I don’t trust the products on the internet cuz I’ve heard some of them actually add to the problems and they install spyware on your computer! No thanks! 3 years ago
