Yes, it's true, rebooting your computer can resolve many problems that you are experiencing. When issues suddenly pop up like running slow, or your apps won't open, try rebooting first. This quick and easy refresh closes apps that need to reset and allows patches and updates to take effect only through restarting your computer. We suggest rebooting your computer once a week to help maintain optimal performance. This also works on your phones, which we often times forget to restart.
If you're wondering about the picture?
