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.

If the disk is full, you'll need to move files elsewhere -- either cloud storage, external disk, dvd, etc... You might also have lots of junk on the machine - delete things you don't need and empty your recycle bin.
If it's almost full and you've been moving stuff to an external, sounds like you really need a bigger hard drive.
You've only got three options: 1) Buy a bigger hard drive 2) Move stuff to the external then delete it off the laptop 3) Delete things off the laptop such as programs you don't use and files . Make sure you empty your recycle bin, it can hold a lot of junk
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
You'll need to remove some items from the drive in order to use it. If you can boot the computer reset the Virtual memory to 512 mb, you can access this under performance in the System settings under control panel. Empty the trash can and delete any cookies. After you do these things you should have enough HD space to at least move things around. Your best bet is to get a portable drive or burn to disk and .doc files or files you have created such as pictures or music that don't get used daily basis.This will let you delete them from your HD clearing more space. After doing all of these things you need to do a system Defrag. Once the Defrag is complete you should reset your virtual memory to allow Windows to control it. Make sure you empty your trash can regularly and save files on other devices instead of directly to your HD.
First, backup all your data to an external medium.
Then, if you have no hardware problems, do this:
(1) Run a FULL anti-virus scan with a good virus scanner. Get free editions of Avast or Antivir. Use the latest virus definitions file. But don't install or run more than one anti-virus at the same time. http://www.avast.com http://www.avira.com
(2) Run anti-spyware scans with Super Anti-spyware and malwarebytes free editions. http://malwarebytes.org/ http://www.superantispyware.com/
(3) Ensure all Microsoft security updates are applied.
(4) Run disk cleanup to delete old temp files and other junk. Right click the drive in My Computer, choose Properties and Disk cleanup. Delete the temp files, temporary internet files, empty the recycle bin etc. Don't compress the drive contents.
(5a) Run chkdsk once to scan for file system errors. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265
(5b) Run a thorough disk defrag. Use a good defragmenter for this, and also run a boot-time defrag to fix the MFT and page file if they are fragmented. Use Diskeeper 2010, which is the best defragger around. Their website has free 30-day trial versions. http://www.diskeeper.com
(6) Disable unnecessary background processes and services that take up memory. You can use MSCONFIG and SERVICES for this, but if you're unsure of what the processes/services do, don't change any settings.
You really only have one drive. The d drive is a partition of your c drive. It is used for backing up your operating system and system restore.If you need more space, delete your programs that you dont use often or burn them on a disk. Do this with pictures also. After you delete everything you dont use run your defrag. Just be careful you do not delete any windows files
