Some things must be done daily in order to prevent your computer from not functioning well. For example scan for viruses should be done everyday since new viruses come out everyday and you need to prevent your computer from getting a virus. You should also backup your hard drive and set a restore point which is when you set a date that you want and just in case the backup fails and deletes everything you have, you will be able to just go back to that date and everything you've had up to there would be saved. Another thing would be scanning the hard disk file systems for errors.
