Some computers can be slow or short of hard drive space for quite simple reasons.
Windows and other program hide temporary files in lots of different places
The best option is not always a program or utility and if you want to do as much as you can for FREE like I do then you have a few options.
 
 
1. First you need to be in windows explorer.
 
2. Click TOOLS and FOLDER OPTIONS
 
3. Now click the VIEW tab
 
4. Tick the Show Hidden Files And Folders option
Unpick Hide Protected Operating System Files (it may warn you but you can ignore it)
 
5. Click APPLY then OK
 
6. NOTE some files may not delete this is OK Also DO NOT DELETE the folder itself where mentioned for cleaning.
 
7. Using windows explorer go into the WINDOWS folder and look for a directory called TEMP (it is possible there may be more than one)
 
8. Select all the contents and delete them. Do the same for any other temp folder e.g. temp000
 
9. Now navigate to Documents and Settings
There are quite a few folders in here that can be cleaned up
 
10. Look for folders named "Local Settings" In there you will find more TEMP folders that can be cleaned out
 
11. Now look inside the Temporary Internet Files. Delete anything EXCEPT cookies. Otherwise passwords for some sites you have stored may need you to type the password again.
 
12. Do this for each user / profile you see.
 
13. Now check the C: drive itself and see if there are any Temp folders and clean those out too
 
To prevent accidental deletion of any files windows needs you should go back to step (4) and change the two settings back to their original

It is either you increase the virtual memory or you increase the RAM of the system by adding a more higher RAM to the one on your laptop. To increase the virtual memory, right click on My Computer, the select and click on properties to bring out the system properties, Go to Advanced, then under performance property, click on settings, to bring out the performance options window, then go to advanced, Under Virtual Memory property click on change to increase the memory. But it is always advisable to add an additional memory. You can also do the disk cleanup and defragmentation for your laptop, so as to remove junks and unused files that are making your system to be slow. Thanks

Check that you have sufficient disk space available. The rule of thumb is that the HD should have at least 10 - 20% space left to operate efficiently.

It is a good idea to scan the whole system for viruses, malware and spyware as these can slow down performance significantly. Next scan the system for un necessary drivers and applications etc. You can do this by using a free 30 day evaluation of Ashampoo from www.ashampoo.de that will check out the whole system and assist in removing all the unwanted junk, I have been using this software for many years with great success in my workshop in improving system performance. Also then do a full HD defragment - also available in the Ashampoo tool.

This should speed things up considerably.

Also you can add more RAM to the system if there is any capacity left as this will stop the system having to swap data and use the HD based swap file which is much slower than using RAM to do it.

Start up! I recommend going to Cnet and download Advance System Care. Once installed it has Admin Option go to Start Up and click all the stuff you don't need running at start up.

    Just think if you tried all of these solutions. Your computer would be pretty clean and fast. Nice job guys! One thing, if your solutions are correct, then start up would more likely be a problem too. But the shampoo solution kind of catches all.

Della 12 Quart 1600-Watt Electric Pressure Cooker Multi-Functional Timer Slow Cook XL Part number: 048-GM-48261 Unable to get this cooker to slow cook.


it is possible that you have misunderstood the instructions
for a slow cooker you have low medium and high
press slow cook and on low and in 8 hours the food is cooked
I see from your statements that you expect the cooker to be set on slow cook but cook at a high temperature fast
if it says slow cook --9 hours and the temp is 125 degrees , have you waited 9 hours to see if it is cooked as the slow cooking process is by the gradual build up of heat in the container that is not expelled by radiation to the air
in a pressure cooker , that build up of heat also builds up pressure and so it cooks better
other solution--- if it is not right return it for a warranty refund or if out of warranty , junk it and get a different make

I am confused is the russell hobbs slow cooker a slow cooker or is it a pressure cooker i am looking for a pressure cooker not a slow cooker


Russel Hobbs makes both a slow cooker and a pressure cooker - confusingly in Europe they call Slow Cookers pressure cookers. The only way to really tel is if there is a special lid with valves and locks (pressure cooker) not a glass or plain lid (slow cooker).

Slow cooker will only stay on warm. How do I put


This slow cooker has 3 settings LOW, HIGH, & WARM
When you plug the slow cooker in the display should show a "0". When you press the "COOK TIME" button, the display should go to 1 then 2 then 3 etc. each time the "COOK TIME" button is pressed. If 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the "HIGH" setting. If 7,8,9, or 10 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the "LOW" setting. To start the cooking cycle press the "ON/OFF" button. To interrupt the cooking cycle at any time, press the "ON/OFF" button. When the cooking cycle is complete, your slow cooker will automatically switch to the "WARM" setting. If the "ON/OFF" button is pressed when the the digital display shows "0", then the slow cooker will automatically start on the "WARM" setting.
If the "COOK TIME" button does not change the display numbers then unplug the slow cooker and hold both buttons down as you plug the slow cooker in. Keep the buttons pressed for a count of ten, then release them and the slow cooker should work correctly
