Windows Maintenance Programs

Computer maintenance can be both physical (dust removal, etc.) and software. The second is more related to the operating system, since the software maintenance of the PC itself at home is only an update to the BIOS of the motherboard.

In all other cases, software maintenance refers to the work of cleaning and optimizing the operating system. All this is done using special programs, which are listed in the article.
