To "clean" old files from your PC...simply click on the file to highlight it, then press your delete key. Answer OK or Yes to the screen prompt. This will delete the file.
For secure deletion of files...like when you're selling your PC...you should "fdisk" the harddrive. This will remove all files and create a blank disk. If you have really sensitive data on the disk and need higher erasing power, use a piece of commercial software that will meet DOD standards. It will erase and write over all data many times, making it unrecoverable. But the software will cost some money. Your choice depends on how sensitive your data is. Photos, letters, usual junk...just "fdisk" ( a free Microsoft DOS program). Financial records, company technical data...use a commercial software. Cheap alternative...smash the drive with a hammer until the internal disk is exposed and the surface is fully scratched.

Engine misfiring in cylinders 3 and 4, will just cleaing the cylinders and replacing the plugs fix this issue


How do you know it is #3 and #4? Perhaps you should perform a complete engine tune up with all new plugs. Is your fuel delivery system up to par? Everything clean? Do you use fuel system cleaner?

There could be other issues beside the plug. That is why I recommend a complete tuneup for your 10 year old automobile.

I used PC Relocator to transfer items on my old computer to a new computer. It worked great for files and settings, but didn't transfer programs. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Most programs such as this ONLY copy/transfer the files and setting. It doesn't "Do" the programs, you have to back those up, some other way. Usually however "Programs" are to be re-installed anew, on the "New" PC, as generally the "New" PC is different to the "Old" and maybe the "Old" settings would not "Run" on the new system.
