Have you ever tested your computer's...

speed?

The past few days I've been considering an "upgrade." Found this site where I could test my computer's running speed after my IP couldn't tell me how fast my machine should be running...

http://reviews.cnet.com/internet-speed-test

Pretty interesting....

While "some" of these "offers" out there are good I am one of them "if it ain't broke don't try to fix it" kinda guys ...

I'm sure mine is not running full blast like some but it putz along just fine to get done what I need to get done and I'm content for the time being.

Come to think of it I have never done a "speed update" thingy of any kind on any of my computers ... I have four of them with the oldest at around 10 yrs old maybe.

Its a little slow but then its got a lot of "stuff" on it too and I was always told that the more junk you load up the slower your machine will probably run so I try to watch exactly what it is that I download.

I know people out there that have soooooooooo much cleaner this and cleaner that and spy this and spy that and all that other good stuff and all these folks have is problem after problem and then they ask me why.

Not sure why it is they even ask me as I am NOT an IT Tech but I do know a few of them and I listen to what they tell me and my saling has been smooth.

I go with the KISS method here ....

U know ... Keep It Simple Stupid ....

I run one of the top ten AV programs out there and guess what? It' s FREE
Matter of fact ...last time I looked it was within the top THREE.

I also run ONE (and one only) Malware program and thats it ....

Thats ALL I have here on all of my computers and I do a lot of stuff and never have a problem. Not to say I am immune from a problem but in all these years ....so far so good so I don't do anything different or load up stuff that won't do anything more than bog down my computers

Of course ya have the periodic scan disk and defrag and other than that ... thats it.
