Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

Low disk space in Windows XP but I only had less program.

I only have 8 programs.. Mozilla Firefox, Stardock, YM and such. I keep on deleting the programs because it always says "Low disk space" and I only had 1MB left. I checked the properties of the computer and it stated that I used 20GB w/c I think wasn't used by me.

Please help me on this. What should I do?

Is your computer's "automatic updates" on? With all the available updates the window's size come upto 12Gb. And if you haven't changed the Windows Page file area it would use your C:/  by default. Try changing the page file area. Go to Properties in My computer>Advanced TAB>Performance "click on settings">Advanced>Under "virtual memory" click change. And change the location of virtual memory to some other drive. And also do not forget to select "no paging file" for Drive which is low in memory. Try this it might work. And yes, as asked by Bonji5555, run file clean up once in a while. and defragment your disks. There are many free disk defragmentors available over the net, google and find one for yourself. Windows have a built in defragmenter but its really slow.
Good luck!

Try going to dll-files.com and download the necessary file. Copy that file to C:\Windows\System. Hopefully this works for you. If not, you could also reinstall Windows which will reinstall the necessary files.

Too long to loading mozilla firefox


Yes it does take a while, especially if you haven't cleared your temp files and cache for a while.
Download the following free program called Ccleaner and run it. It will get rid of all your useless files and clean up your desk. With luck, this will speed up your firefox boot up time. You will also gain disk space!

I am having a major problem with microfeeds. I keep getting a debug message and when I do it it kicks me out of the program I am in. How do I get rid of microsoft feeds? I am happygal58 on yahoo.


why don't you just switch to Firefox,. If you disable this program in IE you will likely prevent important updates. download it and see if this helps. you have nothing to lose.

Flash player 10.0.12.36 is installed but not detected by appln


The problem seems to be conflict in the .dll file "NPSWF32.dll" and it's association with the Windows Registry. The registry key of the flash player for Mozilla Firefox is damaged/corrupted. So you have to uninstall Flash Player: (Follow both the steps.)
Step-1: First uninstall through ADD/REMOVE Programs from controls panel.
Step-2: Then download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller from here. Now close both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Then run the uninstaller tool. After uninstalling, restart your PC. Now open the firefox and go to http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/ to install the latest version flash player.
Remember: Whenever you are installing or uninstalling flash player you must log on to windows as Administrator to perform and troubleshoot this type of issue.

How can i expand my pc memory


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 :)

Slow performance caused by unnecessary programs???


If your computer is running really slow, have you thought about cleaning it with windows disk cleaner? If your computer is otherwise working normally and you haven't loaded any programs that your want within the last couple of days you can also clean up your restore points and save loads of disk space. To do this go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools> Disk cleanup and tick the boxes that you want to clean for example tempory files etc then click on the tab that says more options and clean up system restore, it will still keep your most recent restore point. It will ask you if you are sure that you want to do this, click ok or yes. If you haven't done this before it may take a long time to open while it is compressing old files and determine how much space you will gain. But be patient, the longer it takes, the more space you gain because it is locating files that can be deleted. I hope this helps.
