Some computers can be slow or short of hard drive space for quite simple reasons.
Windows and other program hide temporary files in lots of different places
The best option is not always a program or utility and if you want to do as much as you can for FREE like I do then you have a few options.
1. First you need to be in windows explorer.
2. Click TOOLS and FOLDER OPTIONS
3. Now click the VIEW tab
4. Tick the Show Hidden Files And Folders option
Unpick Hide Protected Operating System Files (it may warn you but you can ignore it)
5. Click APPLY then OK
6. NOTE some files may not delete this is OK Also DO NOT DELETE the folder itself where mentioned for cleaning.
7. Using windows explorer go into the WINDOWS folder and look for a directory called TEMP (it is possible there may be more than one)
8. Select all the contents and delete them. Do the same for any other temp folder e.g. temp000
9. Now navigate to Documents and Settings
There are quite a few folders in here that can be cleaned up
10. Look for folders named "Local Settings" In there you will find more TEMP folders that can be cleaned out
11. Now look inside the Temporary Internet Files. Delete anything EXCEPT cookies. Otherwise passwords for some sites you have stored may need you to type the password again.
12. Do this for each user / profile you see.
13. Now check the C: drive itself and see if there are any Temp folders and clean those out too
To prevent accidental deletion of any files windows needs you should go back to step (4) and change the two settings back to their original

Low internet speed? Computer running slow? If this has to do with your internet you may want to contact your ISP and discuss with them why you are having low speeds. If this is not related to the internet then you should try upgrading RAM and possibly Processor speed.

Our fan is constantly running now for the last last 3 days when our computer is on. We have the computer on all day and shut it down at night. It is louder than normal. Why is this and can it be fixed. ...


Its not a problem if you have the computer running all day long. Get an additional fan for your computer. An additional fan will reduce the noise as more fans running at low speed produce low sound that a single fan at high speeds. Make sure that the CPU is free from dust. More the DUST, higher the heat and higher the noise.

Runs slow on video downloads


Hello Sir,

downloading speed depends on internet connection not on PC specification.

If your transfer is low then downloading will also be low.

Take note that source from which you are downloading also must have reliable connection.


cheers,

Scsi disk only working at 34mbps


You may never acheive the full bus speed as most manufacturers have a habit of giving their specs a little tweak and most mainboards may have conservative bus speeds too. You also have electrical losses in cables, low bus speeds and slower read/write speeds. Most people have at least 2.5 gig internet access speed but they will never reach that speed, most can only get as high as 50 or 60 meg due to cable losses and other restrictions. you may also have component issues which may be slowing things down too.. but to be honest, if you can get to about half what the specs tell you, you have done well..

I am using 802.11b/g wireless lan. my signal


Hi,

Increasing signal may increase speed, but getting closer to the router would yeild the same result iif that is going to work. You would do it by going to the management page for your router, and adjusting the "antenna" or "signal" strength to maximum.

On a linksys the default ip for that page is 192.168.1.1, on other routhers you can look it up in the paperwork or on the manufacturers website.

Hope this helps!!
