A far more serious problem that can cause you computer to crash is hard disk errors. Data is stored in units on the hard disk called sectors. These sectors can become damaged or corrupt. Sometimes new hard disks can have faulty sectors due to the manufacturing process, but they are marked and given more space to make up for the damaged ones. If you try and access a file that is on one of these bad sectors, then your system will crash. Over time, your hard disk will get more bad sectors. What’s more is that if you bump your computer tower, and the head that reads the information on the disk makes contact with the disk itself, it can cause a massive scratch, which will result in serious data loss as well as system crashes.

Software includes every program that you download from the internet, and play games with or use to do math problems etc.

The budget planner has to show what was done in the past year and how the money to be allocated for next year will be used.
The iPhone isn’t just a phone, it’s a mini-computer that can browse the web, play video games, write emails and go on Facebook. My dad uses one as his only computer. But to call it a “computer” almost seems wrong, because for decades computers have been these huge boxes that you had to be an expert to know how to use. And that weird things could go wrong with at any time, and you had to call in a relative to help you figure out what was wrong with them.
The last resort is to reinstall your operating system, because you will lose all your saved files if you do this. However, this often resolves all your problems, especially if you have a particularly nasty computer virus that you just cannot get rid of.
