Windows 7: So I was cleaning my case today. . .

10 Oct 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
So I was cleaning my case today. . .

So this morning I decided to clean the interior of my case which hasn't been cleaned for a good 3 months. So I unplugged the cords and dragged it out of it's position on the left side of my desk. Looking into the case window I saw what looked like webs, when I opened my case I found a full spider web, but the spider was not there.
This made me wounder why a spider would think of my case as a 5-star sanctuary since it's like a New York motel room with a lot of machinery moving around nearby.
So tell me SevenForums, what weird things have you seen inside of your computer cases or other electronics?

In my girlfriends Dell desktop, I opened it to clean it and found a dried up lizard about the size of tube of ChapStick. Can't source the entry point but it must have found it's way in and could find it's way out...poor thing. Maybe it was going after spiders?

Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit

I work on people's computers as a side job. Well, one customer brought in her computer and I set it on my workbench. After she left, I was walking toward my workbench and I see 2 or 3 baby cockroaches running around. WHAT!?! LOL I started looking for them and could not find them. Weird! So I sit down on the desk next to the workbench to start documenting the customer's computer and looked over and there they were again. I jumped out of my chair fast, determined to find out where they're hiding. Sure enough, they were nesting inside my customer's computer.

We've never ever had cockroach problems, so after the customer picked up her computer, my wife and I turned our garage upside down to make sure they didn't leave any "gifts" behind.

Things safe for cleaning outside of computer case
What things are safe and good for cleaning the exterior of a computer case? Are things like baby wipes and Swiffer dusters safe? (This is what I usually use and it seems to have done no damage so far on my new and old computer) Any cautions to be aware of when cleaning the outside of the case?
