How can I make my mom’s Windows PC bullet-proof?
Oh man I don't know what to do anymore. She just called, managed to break her computer again - and as a bonus, her daughters laptop too. Now I gonna have a fun Friday evening backup up their pictures, reformatting the hard drives, installing windows and setting up their software - yet again.
I'm sure this might sound oddly familiar to some of you.
Usually that happens every 2-3 month and when I come to fix it the computer is:
- Slow as heck
- Sometimes not even booting
- Full of Malware & Viruses
- Only rescuable by reinstalling the OS
Last time I switched them from XP to Win7, installed Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware software, enabled automatic updates installation in the background, even tweaked the Firewall on their router. Got them Firefox and deleted the IE Link from the Startmenu. I thought it would last.. oh so wrong I was.
Now this time I want at least 6 month of peace, I gladly incorporate any little tip or tweak, let me hear your suggestions!
