About Clean Out Your Computer Day

When is Clean Out Your Computer Day? This holiday is observed on the second Monday in February

Clean Out Your Computer Day is a day to logically review and delete old files and programs. Then, delete them from your computer system. It’s also a good idea to use this day to run a virus program. Your efforts will allow your computer to run faster and leave memory space for more programs and files.  While anyone can enjoy this day, computer geeks consider this a special holiday.

Most of us add programs and files to our computers with reckless abandon. After all, computers have a huge storage capacity.  Many of these files and programs are forgotten over time or are no longer useful to you. Over time they clog memory, confuse retrieval, and use of other files. And, some may slow down your computer.

Somewhere along the way, a (most likely) computer geek or service person, created this day as an opportunity for us to remember to clean up and delete old and unused files.

So, get into the spirit of the day, and clean out the old computer.

How to Participate in Clean Out Your Computer Day

  • Start by running a virus checker.
  • Next, delete all apps you no longer want.
  • Then, by deleting all old files that are no longer of use to you.
  • Is cleaning out your computer beyond your area of expertise? Me, too. These tasks are best performed by the geeks of the world. Contact the experts in your area. 
  • After you clean out the inside of your computer, give the outside a good cleaning. When was the last time you even dusted your computer? I thought so. And, your keyboard is looking very yucky, isn’t it?
