Question about Dell Dimension 8250 PC Desktop

3 Answers

C: drive is full, I am deleting....

Is there a best way to do this? Things like this is junk,

I believe:  TrailLink_com - Welcome_files ????


Can you suggest a best way.?


I have gotten Registry Mechanics, and Uniblue Registry fix 2...


I am beginning to feel stupid... the Uniblue shows one thing and Registry Mechanics always has more fixes.....


Please let me know if there is a good way to do this, or a better way to go about this.  My computer was attached to a server for the home business Peachtree Program,  which is not on this computer, except in backups, and this computer is independent with most of the programs. I had two printers available, a laser jet and an ink jet that I connected to with the original network.  I easily loaded the HP 7850  to this computer that I am writing about. I have a scanner attached to this network on another computer, and  it seems to be loaded OK on this computer, as I did earlier.   I am not able to re-load my HP 7850 Photosmart Series on my computer because I removed some older software and that was removed  too. Whenever I try to add or take anything away, the message that my Winnt (C:) has no room, only 148 M or K bytes available.  Not enough to do anything... Can you help me?

How big is the C:\ drive? If you don't have a P4, your harddrive is probably not that big to begin with. It might be a good idea to get an external drive, save your data to it and wipe the hard-drive clean. Reinstall Windows and your done

Adding RAM would not fix his problem of a full Hard Drive. Click on "My Computer" then click Local Disk (C:). BE CAREFUL doing it this way. you can delete the WRONG File and fry your system Another Safe way is "Control Panel" then "Add Remove Programs." Then you manually select the junk programs and cra you downloaded. Thats the easiest fastest way.

Please Kindly leave me a vote!

My mac powerbook is slow

Welcome to fixya, I am also a Mac user. There are a number of reasons that may cause a Mac computer running slow or freezing to boot up, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out there which largely slow down any Mac machines. about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system.

Running very slow

if your machine is a year old or older, and if you have not ran any maintenance types of programs on it, it's probably very slow because of the cache files alone. try opening up your browser, i assume internet explorer or firefox. in IE, go under options/tools or tools/options and find where it talks about clearing your internet browser history files and cache files. try clearing these out. the other thing you can try is a website called, go to the top right hand side of the page and click optomize your pc, free pc scan. this scan will take a while, but it will look at your entire computer and suggest things that you need to do. things like delete files, history, duplicates, etc will all show up. recommending suggestions to fix your problems, i always say do as the computer suggests you do. this is a free scan and free solution via there website, i use it all the time. your emachine should be fixed and much better for you after these steps. i hope this helps.

hi June here is how you clear the temp file folder on your pc please do this as i say do not take short cuts as you will not get to the correct temp folder.. go to my computer then double click C drive then double click documents and settings then double click on the folder that has the name of your computer on it then double click local settings then double click temporary internet files then in top left corner click edit then click select all then next to edit click file then click on delete then you will have all the internet temp files deleted, i also would suggest getting a very good program called CCleaner this will remove all the junk built up in the registry which is actually the thing that slows pc's down allot, i use it myself and i have found it to be the very best of any pc cleaner about as it does not delete important files from your pc that you do not know what they are about like some other pc cleaners, you can download it from this trusted site
hope this helps please rate and vote thanks

Troubleshoot acer 5580 laptop when program and files are opened , it hangs

Some reason of hanging the laptop during opening a program is the low speed of the memory modules. But the main reason of this is the virus containing the files or programs. The best way to clear this is to reformat your laptop. You need to have an Windows CD and the installation CD of your laptop motherboard.
