    Very good tips to maintain PC speed and performance. I think virus scans and spyware/adware protection is now the most universal maintenance task and has been simplified by automatic efficient programs. Whats probably ignored is drive maintenance especially drive fragmentation which can also pose a serious threat to stability and speed. Its important to remember that the HDD is the weakest link in the data chain and PC speed and response depends vastly on HDD health. Its best to prevent diseases like fragmentation thus reducing chances of drive problems. Disk cleanups done regularly will also help in reducing the stress on the drive.
