...just rebooting your computer solves many problems.
Among many things, rebooting will help Windows refresh and manage your computer memory. Rebooting once a day or once every couple of days will help keep your computer running smooth.
...turning off your computer at night is a good thing.
If you're not using your computer for a long period of time (for example, at night), it is a good idea to shut it down. This helps minimize internal dust accumulation and also saves electricity.
...your monthly routine maintenance minimizes professional care.
If you simply perform a weekly or monthly tune-up by doing a disk cleanup, virus and spyware scan, and defragmentation, you significantly reduce the chance of having more serious problems with your computer.
..."Safe Mode" is a good way to start troubleshooting problems.
Safe Mode is a special, reserved area for Windows to load when you experience a system error or critical problem that interferes with the normal operation of the Windows software. Safe Mode allows you to safely troubleshoot why Windows is not functioning correctly. You can force Safe Mode by pushing the power button on your computer then continue pressing the F8 key until you get the black "safe mode" screen. The option of using safe mode without networking is generally the best option for troubleshooting and diagnostics. To exit Safe Mode, simply reboot your computer and allow it to load normally.

...where the term "computer bug" originated?
The term "computer bug" was first used in 1945 when a real bug (a moth) short-circuited an early computer used at Harvard University. The technicians of the computer said they had "debugged" the computer. Since this time, the term "bug" has remained the term used for computer software related flaws, mistakes, failures, and issues.
