Upgrading, how to prevent crash

by jbmcgee / February 9, 2009 11:18 AM PST

Hi, I own a 3-4 yr old emachine dsktop that I have added some components to in the last few mths. and was wondering if there was anything I could do in order to prevent a crash or other problems. I installed a second internal HDD (still boot from the orig.), 1 GB of memory, a new CD/DVD burner, and a 500watt power supply. About once a mth, I use the CCleaner to clean registry, Malwarebytes, and Adaware. I run NOD32 and Comodo, which works well. I generally use the PC to surf, play my 500GB of music (stored on the new HDD), stream video and occasionally download from bittorrent. Is there anything else I need to be doing to protect my investment? Thanks for the help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
