Does a restart really help?
The solution to many computer problems is a quick restart. Services and Applications that start with your computer, programs that you use, and even programs that you've already closed use or have used memory (RAM) as a temporary space to store information. When programs close out they are supposed to do so neatly and tidily and remove all their information from RAM. Sadly this does not always happen and result is build-up of messy information that can lead to problems. A quick restart is all it takes to clean that all out and start fresh.
