Tech Tip: Restart Regularly
Thinking of contacting the Tech Desk because your computer is slow, your applications close unexpectedly, you see strange error messages, or nothing happens when you click on a file?  Before you call, restart!   If you can’t recall when you last restarted, do it now! And put it on your schedule – restart at least once a week!
