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

I CANNOT LOAD THE PROGRAMME ON WINDOWS 7 THE FIRST PART IS NOT LOADING WHAT CAN BE DONE?


I've heard of this happening with some softwares. The only solution I have ever heard of was to have the computer re-configured with a partition which allows you to run it with an earlier OS version. Or go to a pawn shop and buy a computer with the necessary operating system already installed for cheap.

Good luck

Few month ago, I installed adobe premiere 6. One of my friend visited to my house and playing my computer. So he removed my adobe from my computer.....


go to Adobe.com and download a fresh copy of it if it has been uninstalled but if just deleted you could try restoring to an earlier date in Windows. That may recover your programme. It is not reverseable so be carefull!

It could be, have you tried restoring your computer to an earlier date when you know that it was working okay. If you haven't loaded anything on your computer after this problem occured(programmes specifically), then do a system restore and see if it helps.

No sound or add and remove programme


Go to Start, Program, Accessories, System Tools, and select System Restore. Choose a date you know when you had sound and your Add/Remove Programs showed up in the Control Panel. If restoring your computer to a earlier date the first time try several dates. Finally if none of the dates work, than you will probable have to reformat your computer.
