    Spring Cleaning is what I am doing. I detest how you uninstall a program and it still leaves files in AppData and ProgramData folders. Even Revo Uninstaller misses them at times. But running a Forced Uninstall and typing in the folder name usually rectifies this.

    Anyone else following this list?

    Recently cleaned my physical computer. Got rid off dust and reapplied heatpaste. Lower temps, quiet fan. Worth it. :D

    I'm going out of order but I'm working on #4 by opting out of all the data brokers:
    Master List of Data Broker Opt-Out Links -
    Ever since ISPs can track you, I'm taking things into my own hands and use all alleys to keep my data away from them.

    My other goal is #6 to change all of my passwords once and close accounts that I don't need to reduce exposure. If only LastPass had an automated way to update all passwords, but that would require incredible scripting skills since each domain is different.
