+ 0 Votes Local Retailer? bincarnato 6 years ago I wouldn't put too much weight on what a local retailer said about anything related to PC maintence or troubleshooting. Especially if you are talking about one from one of the big box stores. They typically have little or no experience in PC support. Fortunatley you were wise enough to go somewhere you would get sound advice from. This question is similar to the, "Do I leave my computer turned on all the time or shut it down when I am not using it?"
