So recently I’ve been somewhat of a PC fixer-upper again (among other things)… But these days I’ve been wise to enforce some form of payment (usually in the form of firewater or cold hard cash); which, any family/friend-helper can attest to, becomes a nightmare. Part of why I decided to pick it back up is to experience what today’s battles are – and unfortunately they’re mostly of the same variant that was rampant even 10 years ago.
I’ve been asked by family and friends alike to give what insight I could into what it takes to keep your PC clean, and how to recover if you fail.
I recently had to set up my work PC, and found out that there’s a good set of utilities that I’m often using and take for granted.
Some are new to me, and some are alternatives to paid programs that I’ve lost licenses to. I typically like to use open source over paid licenses, and this round I’ve managed to do a pretty good job at finding a well rounded set of tools to do the job!
