Computers Are Like A House Of Cards

 

I have always felt that computers a like a house of cards.
Let me explain.
If the base has not been built correctly then it will fall down.
When you install an operating system on a computer or if you have bought one you need to follow a certain path to make sure it will work now and in the future and not fall over.

  1. If doing a clean install , you then need to do all Windows Updates until there are no more left to do and keep rebooting and checking.
  2. Then turn on Automatic Updates.
  3. Install your Antivirus software and again make sure it is properly installed and updated , again keep rebooting and checking until there are no more updates.
  4. Next make sure all your device drivers are installed by going to your control panel and going into system , then device manager, if there are yellow markings then you will have to get updated drivers for these by going on the internet.
  5. Then install your software and do all updates to it by visiting the relative companies websites.

You now have the basis of a solid operating system.
Now the worst possible scenario.
Bring home the computer or just install the operating system , do no updates , go straight on the net , and watch your house of cards come crashing down.
