Windows OS is notorious for all the error messages, virus infections and other OS problems like the dreaded Blue Screen of Death error. Of course, many of these issues can be easily fixed by just contacting the Windows 8 tech support personnel. But, a much better approach is to keep the system as clean as possible, protected from the virus infections and OS errors.
How to keep your system clean?
Since Windows is one of the most widely used operating systems in the world, hackers tend to target Windows operating systems in particular. For this reason, there are so many virus applications floating online designed to infect the Windows OS version running on your system. So, installing a quality antivirus application and keeping it updated is the first defence.
There are plenty of antivirus applications available that can do this task. There are some freeware versions too available online. If you are using the system for business purposes, it is essential that you stop worrying too much about the expenses and buy a quality antivirus application for your office systems. But, for average users, even the freeware antivirus applications might be enough to effectively protect their system from viruses.
In case of Windows 8 OS, you will get an in-built antivirus utility called Windows Defender. You can disable this if you want and use some third party antivirus application, though the Windows 8 tech support website strongly cautions the users against doing so. But, running more than one antivirus application in the system is an unnecessary drain on the resources and will only slow down the OS.
Removing all the unnecessary applications
You have to pay particular attention to what all software applications you are installing in the system. Some software installers come loaded with additional applications like toolbars or browser add-ons. You need to de-select them before the installation. Go through all the programs and applications installed in the system and uninstall those no longer needed.
Keep your system updated
After all this, you might still experience some OS errors every now and then. Such Windows issues are common and Microsoft releases updates and fixes to take care of these. So, turn the Automatic updates on or keep manually updating the OS as regularly as you can. This will significantly reduce the chances of OS errors occurring in the system.
However, remember that it is impossible to completely avoid OS problems. Just make sure that you contact our tech support personnel when this happens.
