Help Me Keep My New PC Happy, Healthy and Safe From Harm

I've very recently (ie yesterday) got myself a brand new desktop PC! I would really like your advice on the best ways to keep it running at its best, protected from the nasty things that lurk on the internet (virii, malware, spyware etc) and set up to get the most out of our blossoming relationship... The machine runs on Windows 8. [more inside]

Is it possible to attach a sliding part for my keyboard to my table?

I have a table that I bought from IKEA which is a bit like this: http://www.ikea.com/​ca/​en/​catalog/​products/​S29806818/ and the problem I have is that while the screen on the table is fine, the keyboard which is right in front of it seems to me to be too high for my arms. So I was wondering if it is possible to install that sliding part you find in computer tables like this one: http://img.weiku.com/​waterpicture/​2011/​10/​25/0/​office_​furniture_​computer_​table_​6345924906​78635461​_1.jpg and what that part is called anyway? Thanks! [more inside]

Advice on installing an air conditioner into a window sleeve that's too big?

In the apartment I'm moving into, each room has a wall sleeve (just below the window) for an air conditioner. We tried installing one of my air conditioners in there tonight, and it's too small to fit the space. It mostly fills it, but even with the fins on either side of the air conditioner pulled out, there are still spaces above and below. Does anyone have any advice on how to properly install the air conditioner? [more inside]
