Hi keshiaturner,

This may work for you. Try compressing your C: drive. This will create an alternate/ghost drive, usually H:drive. You may then have enough memory to run your job. Transfer the the compressed file in the new H:drive to C:drive and work with the app in there. I hope this helps you, if not , hit me back, we have other options.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7

Clean up disk space window 7, already deleted unwanted items


If you run Disc Cleanup, in accessories, that will give the option to remove temporary and hidden files.

Hp mini no memory to do anything


Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently. This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access. Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too. Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment. When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive. Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

How do you clean a laptop ram?


Hi there loverboyjero! :) here are the steps on how to clean a laptop ram :)
1.Log onto your laptop and click "Start." Go to the "Control Panel." Choose "Performance Information and Tools." The window lists data information such as calculations per second and memory operations per second. On the left is a list of tools for disk cleanup. The tools in this window can also be accessed in the "System Tools" folder inside "Accessories," which is also located at the "Start" menu.
2.Click on "Advanced tools." Choose "Open Disk Defragmenter." The window will list the last time the laptop was defragmented. If the "Last run" was over a month ago, click "Defragment now." Defragmenting your hard drive will rearrange files so that the laptop can better access them. Defragmenting may take an hour or longer, depending on the last time it was done.
3.Click back to return to "Performance Information and Tools." Click "Open Disk Cleanup." The window will prompt you to select a drive to cleanup. Select "C:" and if you have more than one hard drive, an external or a partitioned hard drive, do a disk cleanup of these drives as well. Wait for Disk Cleanup to calculate how much space you will be able to free up. This may take a few minutes to complete.
4.Select the items that you want to delete. These files will be permanently deleted. Delete "Temporary Internet Files," "Downloaded Program Files," and the "Recycle Bin." You may have an option that says "Hibernation File Cleaner." Removing this file will disable hibernation on your laptop. Do not remove this file if you use hibernation. Click "OK," then "Delete Files.

Why is my C drive full? When I add up the memory of each folder, they don't total the total C drive space. I have scanned it with Microsoft Disk Scan, Avast has scanned, I defragged it.


Have you deleted the temporary files? Download CCleaner and delete the temp files.
Right click on the C:\ drive in My Computer, select Properties. That will show you the amount of disk used. If you have a very small disk then you might try "compressing the drive" If the disk is under 100GB, consider replacing it with a larger disk but it is a pain if you cannot get your data and programs off the old drive to install on the new drive.

The computer is painfully slow


Malware dialers and virus' can cause this. Run a virus scan then get Spybot search and destroy here:

My laptop is very very slow please help I'm a newbie at pc's. Thank you! Gladys


Several things you can do:
1. Clean out all internet cache in browser.
2. Defragment disk/hard drive. Use Microsoft Explorer to do this.
3. Make sure you have ample disk drive space. If your memory is low the computer uses the disk drive to page data to and from memory, and this takes addition time..
4. Get a program(like Fix-it by Avanquest) that cleans up and defrags your registry. Be careful with this one you can destroy your computer, messing with the registry. This program will do everything mentioned above. Well worth the money and it has a virus, spyware and malware scanner and does a great job.
5. Add more memory.

You really only have one drive. The d drive is a partition of your c drive. It is used for backing up your operating system and system restore.If you need more space, delete your programs that you dont use often or burn them on a disk. Do this with pictures also. After you delete everything you dont use run your defrag. Just be careful you do not delete any windows files

Low disk space


sounds like the additional memory is not recognized, but the low disk space refers to your hard drive. Either delete some files and defrag or upgrade your hard drive.

Hi Whose,

Me again :-)
Yes m8, there is something you can do.

à Settings à Control Panel à Add/Remove Programs
Select the software (one at the time) from the list and click on the Add/Remove button and follow the online screen instructions.

Erase unnecessary files in the windows temp folder.
Double Click My Computer.
Double Click the drive where windows are installed. This is typically drive C.
Double Click the windows folder. This is typically C:\Windows.
Double Click the temp folder. This is typically C:\Windows\temp.
Press control A to select all files and folders.
Press the delete key.
If confirmation is asked to delete these files choose yes to all.


Defragment hard disk.
Close all applications.
Disable your screen saver.
Disable all the programs on the taskbar if possible.
Click Start.
Click Program.
Click Accessories.
Click System Tools.
Click Defrag.
Select the drive to defrag.

You should defrag every hard disk on your system.
This process can take quite some time.
Click Ok.
Enable your screen saver.


Remove Startup programs (if you know what you are doing)
Click Start
Select Run
Type msconfig in the text box
The "System Configuration Utility" window will open

A list of programs will be shown each having a checkbox to the left of the name.
Click on the checkbox to enable the program (so it runs when windows boots) and click a second time to Uncheck the box to disable the program (so it does not run when windows boots).


Set the size of the virtual memory (swap file) to a constant optimal size.
Right click My Computer
Click Properties
The System Properties window lists the amount of RAM in your PC
Click Performance
Click Virtual Memory
Click Let me specify my own virtual memory settings
Click the arrow next to the hard disk.
Here are some guidelines to choose the best location for your virtual memory file
a) Select the quickest hard disk.
b) If you have, two hard disks that are similar in performance select the hard disk that does not contain Windows system files (usually C:).
c) Make sure the drive has free space equal to at least twice the size of the recommended swap file size.
d) If the partition is on the same physical drive, select the partition in alphabetical order. For example, if you have one 20GB hard disk and you partition it into two 10GB partitions drive C & D) You should pick Drive C over Drive D if meets all the guidelines of a, b & c.

Set the Minimum/Maximum to: With large hard disks settings at least 128mb or 256mb swap file should be sufficient in almost every situation.
Note: The amount of RAM plus the size of the virtual memory file is the maximum amount of RAM you can use at once.
Click OK.
After setting the size of the virtual memory file windows will display the following message. You have chosen not to let windows manage virtual memory automatically.
Click Yes.
You must restart your computer before the new settings will take effect. Do you want to restart your computer now?

Click Yes
