Tips for a Cleaner, Faster Computer

Did you know that a PC with dirty insides can make for a sluggish system? If your computer makes beeping noises, or you know you've never done a little spring cleaning, chances are its case is riddled with dirt, dust, food and, if you have a pet, lots and lots of pet hair.

According to MSN, the best way to tackle PC dirt is to unplug everything - power cord, phone line, cable modem, and ethernet cables, open the case, touch the power supply to discharge any static and to ensure that you and the inside of your PC are at the same voltage, remove filters and carefully clean up the mess.
