Am little bit annoyed to see the dust all on my computer. I usually take some cloth and just clean it, but it is not that effective. What you people do to keep it clean? How often?

Once in a month, I vacuum clean my whole system. Once in a few months I open my rig and clean it up. This improves my system performance. Another point is not to turn on the fan in the PC room. It would agitate the dust and PC gets dustier faster. Keep PC away from windows as well. I am not talking about "Windows XP", but the physical windows in our house.

Wipe with clean rag or sometimes I wipe it with cotton and sometimes I do brushing it with paint brush this is the softest way to get rid of dirt.

We shake out the keyboard and wipe down the monitor. Once in a while we vacuum and dust out the computer since it somehow collects all sorts of dust and particles. Once a year in January we really clean it up and try to rid internally the junk that accumlates as files and such. The computer seems to work so much better tended to.

What a great question. My house can be dusted every day. I don't know where all of the dust comes from in here. It may be coming from my carpet. I can dust right now and later, I can write my name on the furniture again using my finger. My desk stays dusty and they say that electrical appliances will attract dust too. I haven't found any remedy for the dust in here yet either. I just use a dust rag with pledge but it doesn't keep it clean very long.
