The size does increase regularly. If you are running out of space, consider a larger hdd.

This is a problem with your Operating system. Thsi usually happens as a result of a virus activity or system files that have been corrupt. For you to fix this, Lets try the following options....
1. Restart your computer and while it is booting, just before it starts displaying letters and numbers on the screen, keep on pressing F8, until it gives you an option for you to boot in safe mode.
Select SAFE MODE and wait to see if the computer will boot into safe mode. If this option works, then you have to download an antimalwarebyte software and run a complete scan on your machine. But if the first option does not work for you, the try the next one.

2. You need to have an operating system Disk that is the same with the one your computer is using. For example Win XP. 7/ 8. Then you will have to boot the computer with the disk in it such that the computer will boot from the Disk. This will give you options for you to repair your machine without loosing any of your personal data.

Acer Aspire One D255 with Windows 7 starter installed does not start up. Everytime i start the netbook, it prompts me to repair it or start normally. Start normally doesn't work and prompts me back to...

Usually this error occurs because there are some files missing from your operating system's directories. I would suggest using a Windows 7 DVD that has the operating system on it. You can put that in the CD drive and then the repair option should work. If you don't have a Windows 7 DVD, you may have to buy one. If there is important data on your hard drive, avoid reformatting it. If you're ever asked to format, say no. The following link is the cheapest Windows 7 DVD I could find, but you may want to shop around. ( I hope this helps!

Low disk space winsxs is 10 gb how do I delete this file pls

The bad news are that i don’t recommend doing any manual removals on winsxs folder. Such a step could probably make your applications non-workable or even break your system!
If you have Vista sp1 installed use the vsp1cln.exe : The utility removes all Vista SP1 uninstall files and by using it you can reduce few gigs.
To run vsp1cln.exe:
  • Press on vista start button type cmd.exe and hit on enter.
  • hen enter the following command:Vsp1cln.exe and press enter key
  • You will be asked to confirm your action , just press “Y” and after few minutes your winsxs will be smaller.
Other ways to reduce the winsxs folder:
  • You can uninstall non needed application
  • If you have office 2007 installed , and you can get later distribution like with sp1 included – uninstall your entire office, and install the version that includes sp files.

My computer where infected with virus please help me to remove it

There may be another alternative.

You can remove the infected hard drive and use another computer to put it into as a slave/secondary drive.

You can then try to "Clean" the infections via this computers antivirus and malware cleaners. Check the Gizmo site for some really great advice and loads of programs that can help you.

Make sure this other computer's security is up to date first.

Whenever you download anything from internet that is sent to the temp folder. Win XP limits the temp folder size which can always be increased by the user. You are simply required to increase the temp folder limitation size.
