Observed on the second Monday in February, National Clean Out Your Computer Day promotes taking time out of your day to do some basic housekeeping on your computer.

All computers need regular organizing and clean-up. This includes the removal of old files and clutter. We tend to save emails, documents, and photos on our hard drives when other media can store them for us. Often, we keep duplicates we don’t need. Old programs also create havoc, too. Makes sure you are using the latest versions of programs and operating systems, too.

Over time, files and programs that are unused on your PC clog the memory and cause confusion during retrieval and use of other data. They may also slow down your computer.
