Computer programs have become such a regular part of our lives that many of us don’t even realize how often we use them. Everything from Microsoft to Adobe to Android on your cellphone are computer programs that you probably can’t live without. Often, our devices prompt us to update these programs whenever necessary, but if your computer or phone has been operating slowly, you may want to make sure all of your programs are up to date. A simple restart of your laptop will get the process started, though on your phone you may want to manually check for updates to ensure that everything is working at maximum efficiency.
