Some Misconceptions About Computers 

Like everything else, there are some common misconceptions about computers that many believe are true. This article is about some misconceptions or 'myths' about computers. I hope you know the right information about these and share it with others. So, let's get started.

Hackers are there to hack your PC

If you watch an American sci-fi movie, the word hacking comes to your mind when you hear the word hacking. That is not the case. Hacking doesn't mean that one or more people are trying to hack your PC in real-time. Rather, hackers hack through some automated programs, programs that may be constantly monitoring not only you but everyone you care about. So you can be sure that if you are not a very high-profile person then no one is sitting in real-time to hack your PC!

Too much RAM is bad

This is another misconception. Many people think 'different processes of PC are occupying more memory so I will use task killer'. In fact, these task-killer programs are of no use. Instead, they can slow down your PC by shutting down the necessary processes in the name of memory optimization. Khali Rodham has no work at all. So there is no reason to worry about using a little RAM!

Defragmentation programs are very useful

There are many programs available for Windows disk defragmentation. Many people think that these programs should be run on PC at regular intervals. But it is also a myth or misconception. Rather Windows 10, 7, and 8 are smart enough and they can automatically defragment your disk without any third-party program. On top of that if you use SSD storage instead of hard disk then defragmenting SSD can be rather harmful. So the old idea has to be welded a little new.

Viruses are responsible for slowing down your PC

Viruses and other malware not only slow down your PC. Rather, it is the essential programs that you think are innocuous that may be slowing down your PC by running background processes. If you open many tabs in your browser and keep the media player/editing software window open, the PC will work slowly. Many viruses can secretly cause mischief without slowing down the PC.

Antivirus will keep you safe

In fact, no antivirus can keep you safe unless you are careful. Just as third-party antivirus will give you security, it will also hurt your PC's performance. It is best not to use third-party antivirus software on Windows 10 PCs. However, there is a Windows Defender if absolutely necessary. And if you don't feel confident in it (if you download/download too many files) then you can use a different antivirus. Read this post to know about the best 5 free antivirus of 2018.

PC must be turned off after work

This is also a misconception. It is not very important to keep the PC shut down every night or after regular work. Instead, it is a waste of time to start working after turning off the PC and restarting. If you want to save electricity, you can use Slip or Hibernate mode without a PC shutdown.

Auto-update can damage PC

Automatic updates are not always bad. It is true that many times you can face many bugs and issues by updating the PC auto. But these updates are given to keep your PC safe. So it is reasonable not to disable auto-update. However, those who run cracked software and/or other groups whose internet data is limited, want to turn off auto-update at all times.

Internet Explorer is not good

It's just that Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer won't give you much in this age. But it is not something to be thrown away. Although Microsoft has launched the Edge browser to replace Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer 11 is a very good browser. Microsoft Edge is another great internet browser that started with Windows 10.

C-cleaner and registry cleaner software increase PC speed

In fact, these programs occupy your PC's memory more than PC cleaning programs do. These are not very useful. The same goes for uninstaller software. Windows default uninstaller is enough. It is better not to use separate software for this if it is not too much. In addition, frequently clearing the PC's browser cache will reduce your browsing speed, as the browser's cache helps reduce site load time by retaining some content.
