Now such unpleasant optics would hurt your eyes via google if you have accidentally turned off "Safe search" on Google search.

  • Never restarting your computer

Consistently, leaving your computer in sleep or standby mode won’t affect your computer, but it will slow it down. Thus, restarting your computer is a smart way to kill all the background processes that may be making your computer slow. Embrace the habit of completely shutting down or restarting your computer every once in a while.
