  2. Brian's post in Disable Caps Lock Key was marked as the answer   
    Don't be too afraid of the Registry. If you get a program to do it...that program changes Registry Settings. Austin Krause wrote up a great step by step article on how to modify the Registry to disable it... http://www.groovypost.com/howto/howto/how-to-disable-the-caps-lock-key-in-windows-7/
    Another trick to deal with the Caps Lock key, is make it alert you if you accidentally hit it.http://www.groovypost.com/howto/windows-make-caps-lock-key-beep-when-pressed/

    I will use it when repairing an old XP system that's completely messed up...infected, full drive, never had maintenance run on it...
    It's great for that. On my own system's I use it occasionally for certain features, but not the Reg Cleaner. I prefer to clean that manually after uninstalling a program.
    There is a constant debate in the tech world if Registry cleaner's even improve system performance. I think they are snake oil. You can make the argument for using them on older XP systems. But not in Vista and higher.

    Copying files to a CD / DVD or Blu-ray disc for that matter is a simple process. This article shows how to copy data to a Blu-ray drive, but the process is the same for a CD or DVDhttp://www.groovypost.com/howto/blu-ray-burn-large-amount-data-blank-disc/
    Windows offers a solid encryption feature, EFS which Steve wrote about:http://www.groovypost.com/howto/windows-8-7-efs-encrypt-files-folders/
  5. Brian's post in How Often Should I turn off my PC? was marked as the answer   
    Personally, I never turn my main computer or home server off. This has been an age old debate for years. Really it depends on how much you use it. I use mine probably 18+ hours a day, so I restart it probably once a week, and keep it on the rest.
    If you don't use it often you're fine to turn it off. If you're somewhere in between, put it in sleep or hibernate mode.
    Most modern Antivirus programs these days offer real-time scanning or you can schedule them to run if a scan was missed. Once a week is what I usually recommend. If you want to make 100% sure scans are complete you can always run them manually.

    One thing you can try is opening Internet Explorer. Then go to Tools >> Windows Update.
    Also, go to Control Panel and make sure you're getting automatic updates.
