Hi there,
There is a free program called ncleaner that I use to free up space on Windows. It properly deletes all unnecessary files on your system, and can also 'shred' the free space on the system, and clean up redundant registry entries. I swear by it. you can download it from here:
http://www.nkprods.com/ncleaner/

Another trick is to go to My Computer > C: > Program Files > Java, and delete older versions of Java. Leave the most recent one (ie the highest number), but when Java updates it doesn't delete older versions, which can increasingly take up space on your hard drive.

I would recommend ncleaner as essential, and the Java deletion method as optional. After you have cleaned the drive and the registry etc. with ncleaner you might be able to get a little more space back by defragmenting the hard drive.
Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter
and then press Defragment. This is something you should be doing occasionally anyway.

Try and keep around 15% of your hard drive free at all times to avoid the system from slowing down and hanging up. You could burn all your media files onto disk, or move them onto a USB stick, and then delete them from the hard drive.

Good luck and Happy Holidays :)

My laptop is accer aspire5734Z-4512. and now i can't operate microsoft word 2007 trial version. what shall i do to install a full version of microsoft word 2007 with free of coast? shall i install the full...


Check with the document and discs that came with your computer. It is very likely that the laptop shipped with a trial version off Office 2007 installed. This version would run for a limited time, often timed to the number of times you launched the program.

The number on your laptop is tied to your operating system and not to Office.

Your two choices at this time, is to purchase a retail package of the Office suite that most fits your needs. Microsoft, over time, has changed the offerings of what is in Office and the names of the packages (Student, Professional, etc.) or use a free solution like OpenOffice that can be found here.

Finally, Microsoft is selling their current version of Office which is 2010.

How shall i transfer pictures from my camera to the macbook pro with the memory card?


The simplest way would be to buy a universal card reader with a USB 2.0 interface that supports your camera's memory card. It would plug into the macbook's usb port and you can drag and drop. These can be had for less than $20.

I have 2GB memory should i go for 4GB on Vista Ultimate


well your board should be able to handle up to 8 gigs of ddr2 sdram. should have four memory ports. the more memory the better. don't know what processor you are using but if it's relatively new then shouldn't be any problems. vista is slow as it is so anything you can do to speed it up will help. oh it is always better not to mix and match brands, speeds etc when it comes to memory. if you expand be sure to purchase what you are already using or buy all new ones. will drastically reduce the potential for problems.

I hope this helped

PC slow while printing


when printers are being used it requires a lot of memory especially for larger files.

my first suggestion is to get more memory, however to validate that it is the problem press ctrl alt delete and go to the system monitor to see the ram usage during the printing, if its maxed out then you know its 100% needs more ram.

in the short term you can increase manually the virtual memory of xp so it uses the harddrive as temporary memory to make printing faster

good luck
