Hey there, there is really no easy way to do this. First suggestion, download ATF cleaner

http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1

this is a program that does the same thing as disk cleanup without doing the stuff you don't need to.
Then you have to go to add/remove programs in the control panel and remove the programs you don't want.
After all that I suggest purcahsing registry booster

http://www.liutilities.com/products/campaigns/rbtrial/ppcorder/google/us/

or registry mechanic

http://www.pctools.com/mirror/rminstall.exe

these will clean up all the **** in your registry after uninstalling. Your computer will be back to factory or close and I'm sure run faster. Might as well do a scan with malwarebytes (free) too

http://dw.com.com/redir?edId=3&siteId=4&oId=3000-8022_4-10804572&ontId=8022_4&spi=21f2b83af9029ab101ce52c871b826b8&lop=link&ltype=dl_dlnow&pid=11039785&mfgId=6290020&merId=6290020&pguid=WUIFGAoPjFwAADEcL@IAAAAn&destUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.cnet.com%2F3001-8022_4-10804572.html%3Fspi%3D21f2b83af9029ab101ce52c871b826b8%26part%3Ddl-10804572

or, you can always do a fresh install with the recovery cd. I always wipe my drives first but you need a boot cd to do that. It is better than formatting. I use disc scrubber, not sure if you need to go that far, more for paranoid people like me.
good luck, let me know if you need anything else.

    Sorry man I forgot the easieast way to do this. Hold in F8 as soon as the pc powers on, this will take you to a black and white screen where you can choose to go into recovery (note safe mode here for future issues). I don't suggest this because it still leaves a lot of trash on the pc and may not run as fast as when you got it. Let me know if you have any questions

You can do several things. You can do a disk cleanup. Just right click on all partitions and go to properties and clear the temp files, and all the files that you do not need.
Open browsers and go to internet options and clear all the internet temp files and cookies from there also.
You can manually clean temp files by going to Documents and settings/<your user name>/local settings/
Use a registry defragging and cleaning software(with caution). Defrag the disks. You can do it from the control panel. Or go to disk management in the management console.
To get it, r click on My Computer icon and go to manage. Go to disk management.
When u delete files, use shift and delete (do not go to the recycle bin then).
These services are available with recent anti virus software also. Firstly check you machine for any viruses.
Use a tuneup software like tuneup 2009 or system mechanic pro.
Thanks.
Hope this will help you.

Computer very slow


This can be a number of things but usually over time the system gets clogged up with junk stuff. The best thing is to save all that you want to a separate drive then reinstall operating system ie windows.

Please don't misunderstand but maybe you accidentally touch someting inside the system while cleaning it that caused for the computer not to work properly. Be careful in cleaning our computer specially inside. Replug all the links needed because the computer may reconfigurate it again before it will work. If it won't work however, please contact you Hardware IT Technician.

I want my computer running quicker,without paying extortionate prices


do a clean fresh reformat. back up your data, and reinstall the OS that u were using.
make sure it is not a bloated reinstall, where it installs all the stuff that ur laptop came with (the stuff u NEVER use and just slows stuff down)
just download a nice version of ur OS (torrent it, its legal if u use ur own licence key which is under your laptop or on the side of your computer)

How do you get stuff off your computer


What "stuff" are you referring to? If you mean cookies, temporary files, etc... I'd recommend Googleing "CCLEANER" and download their FREE software. This is a great way to clear out all the **** on your computer. Run it a couple of times and then every day or so. You will be amazed at all the "stuff" your computer accumulates off the "net". Good Luck.

First, try to clean the battery contacts inside the camera and on the battery.Use a pencil with a rubber eraser, and gently rub the contacts to clean them. Then install the battery and operate the camera.

If you are sure that you want a totally clean disk, you can always run F Disk. That will leave you with a blank, but formatted, hard drive.
Have a super day!
