There are lots of reasons your computer might crash, including viruses and corrupted processes. To avoid this, you need to take good care of your computer. Be sure to:
Completely power off your computer at least once per week and then turn it on while at school. This will allow the computer to update virus protection services and upgrade other software essential to keeping your computer running problem free.
Be selective about the attachments you open and the online ads you click on. Many viruses are transmitted this way.
Avoid using flashy or fast moving screen savers, cursors, etc. While they may look cool, these items are memory hogs and can cause your computer to crash.
Avoid filling up your computer's RAM. Close programs when you are finished using them, rather than simply minimizing them. The more programs your computer is running in the background, the more likely you'll have a crash.
