Option 1: Vista itself requiers a large amount of memmory, consider switching to a less demanding operating system like Windows XP, If you prefer the Vista look you can get themes that make Windows XP look like vista (Remember: you will need to backup files which you wish to keep).

Option 2: Insert you vista disk and follow on screen instructions to modify which vista components you want on your computer or use the add/remove windows components wizard on you computer, you may find there are parts of vista you do not require.

Option 3: Continue what you have already started.

I have a Toshiba satelite laptop that runs slow and says that it is neary full. I need to free some some space but do not know what to delete. Everything on it seams to relate to microsoft.


You may have installed every softwares on your System Drive (typically C:/, where the OS is installed). Try to install them on other partitions, this will free up some spaces.



You may try with Disk Cleanup utility. To use it go to: Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Disk CleanUp. This will ask you which of the disk to be cleaned up. Select the desired System Drive Letter and click on OK. You may delete Windows Error reporting files, System error memory dump files from there. You can also delete older restore points by clicking on Clean Up System Files. Select System drive letter as before and click on more options. Under System Restore and shadow copies click clean up. This will remove all but the latest restore point.



Hope this helps, Mrityunjay

How do I remove all the deleted e-mail from my pc because I got a message telling me I have used all the 20 space i am intartle


Just click the Start button and click Run (or Search if you are using Vista or Win 7). Type the command and then press the Enter key: cleanmgr
Click OK on the next screen. Windows will calculate the files it can compress and delete and will give you a list after a little time. It may take a few minutes as it says.
Select or unselect, whether you want to delete or not and press OK. Click Yes when asked.
Once again, start the cleanup manager using the above method. This time, click on More Options. You have a few more options to free up space on drive C. You can free up quite an amount of space by using the second and third cleanup buttons. Use them. use the third button first, for removing the old restore points.
After removing the unwanted or very old and unused programs and old system restore points, click on OK
Want to free some more space? Copy stuff from your Documents or My Documents folder to another drive or partition if you have (like D or E), on the hard disk. Or just move the old/unwanted stuff to a CD/DVD.
Hope that helps. Regards, Raspal

Not enough space on friends laptop


First you need to disable system restore on the drive to reclaim the missing space. To do this, you can do the following:
1. Go to Start > Control Panel > System
2. In System > Click on System Protection at the left side
3. In the System Protection Window > go to the System Protection Tab > then uncheck C: then hit Apply then OK

After disabling system restore, run disk clean up:
1. Go to Start > Computer > Right-click on C: > Disk Cleanup - make sure to check all of the files to be deleted to clear as much space as possible
2. After initially running Disk Cleanup you will now be able to see the More Options tab in the Disk Cleanup window > go to this tab then cleanup the System Restore and Shadow Copies to remove them completely
3. Enable the System Restore from the System Protection tab in System.
4. Resize the maximum amount of Shadow Copies that can be saved on the system, this will lock the System Restore feature from saving more than allocated amount. Run Command Prompt as administrator (go to Start > Programs > Accesories > then right-click on Command Prompt then Run as Administrator)
Set the maximum to whatever amount you feel is necessary. Setting it to 1GB should be more than enough for System Restore to create at least two restore points. Type the command: vssadmin resize shadowstorage /on=c: /for=c: /maxsize=1gb

5. Once this is done you should have reclaimed at least 30 to 40% of the missing space. Once the System Restore has been reenabled it will automatically create the restore points so there will be no need to manually create one.

I am running Vista Home and have chronic "low disk space" (every day the message appears). I do use disk clean up but this does not solve the problem. I have heard that this is a problem with Vista where...


Have you ever done a Disk Cleanup?
This removes temporary files and compressed files etc. that are no longer required and returns hard disk space for you to use.
When you run Disk Cleanup (click My Computer, right click on the C drive, click on Properites, then Disk Cleanup, tick the all the boxes. The cleanup process will take some time a long time, especially if you have a large hard disk.

Deleting updates, freeing space on hard drive


if you are running windows vista, this might help alot, if running xp, it might not, go disk clean up for drive c. to do this, open up my computer, and right click on drive c, and open up properties. click on disk clean up, and a window should show up. if you are running windows vista, its going to ask if from current user, or all users, click all users. after the calculating window, a window that says disk clean up for drive c will show up. click on the tab at the top of that window that says more options, and on the bottom box, which should say system restore and shadow copies, click the clean up button. the longer it takes, the more space its freeing up. Goodluck
