Computer On, Internet On, All Night?

It used to be that most anti-virus programs stopped ALL viruses. Because of the strength of the new viruses, and the failings of most anti-virus programs I'd recommend shutting off the internet in these instances:

1) all updates are being done during the day 
2) Remote connections back to the office are not being used 
3) I'm sure there's others.

Shutting off the Internet at night is different than shutting off your computers. On older computers it is better to let your computer run continually. By turning off your computer first and foremost is the uneven temperatures caused by turning off.  The silicate from the motherboard and any solder points expand and contract with temperature fluctuations. Leaving your computer on eliminates that problem. Most components run much better with a continual flow of current. When you start your system you really stress the motherboard and its components with a surge of energy.

Most business & residential computers should run a defrag, spy-ware scan, anti-virus scan, and Chkdsk (Check Disk) at least weekly.  This is the perfect evening task for your computer while your sleeping.

Hard drives last maybe 5-8 years with proper cooling and defragmentation. I’ve seen badly fragmented hard drives die in 6-8 monhs. This is extreme and heating is another factor. The first external drives that came out had little in the way of cooling vents, and we’re just a big heat sink. Hard drive failure rates in those hard drives were bad. I’m seeing the newer externals having more vents and fans in the higher end ones.

The reason you run a Check Disk is to locate Sector Errors that are the first sign of a failing Hard Drive. We recommend a weekly run of Check Disk to see what the error rate is. If more than a few sectors are damaged or unreadable, this is a sign that your Hard Drive is dyeing. ) Weird Screeching and loud thrashing are also major signs

 Lots more advice and observations are available here (These are much more specialized and quite helpfull):
