'Patch Tuesday' (Microsoft releases Windows updates every second Tuesday of every month) and 'Critical Wednesday', all outstanding work is put aside to ensure system is fully patched (The days mentioned don't seem to correspond with the Windows 10 updates pattern however, they're valid estimations).
A seasonal defrag is conducted to keep HDD at optimum level.
The objective is to achieve sound protection with reliable performance.
Both laptops have password-protected BIOS to prevent any modifications to the system or unauthorised access to boot up another system from a USB/Disk to see personal data.
The second laptop currently has a secure Guest account setup with an Admin account for software updating and management which is used for recreational purposes only.
