Clean format/install every 45 days. I always manage to screw something up and corrupt my OS in that time frame

YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

i should have added this to my list im constantly reformatting and reinstalling its the best thing to do to keep your pc running tip top as it gets rid of unused programs that yo-u most likely wont re install
