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

    In addition to my other advise you may also want to try the items listed below.



    It may well be some form of virus or spyware.

    It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.

    It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.

    You should rule out nasty stuff first.

    MBAM !


    for a free one its pretty darned good !

    From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.

    Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.

    Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.

    When its done let it clean anything it finds.

    Its where I always start with an infected machine.

    As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying

    Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?

    It may just be a "leaking application"

    These are badly coded programs that dont release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.

    May I suggest you download
    "hijackthis"

    It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.

    They will then give you reccomendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.

    Dont post the log here but follow the nstructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.

    If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot som things yourself that you dont want to run and disable them from hijack this.

I have a Toshiba R15 S822, my problem is that my touch screen is not working, I would like to know how do I reset my computer to factory setting?


I might not be necessary to reset to factory settings. Just go to the Toshiba.us support site and download the drivers for the Tablet PC (that includes the WAcom driver, all the tablet PC extensions).
If you have the Recovery CD, you can run it from inside Windows XP and reinstall selectively all you need.
Just to set things straight, the screen of the R15 reacts to the Wacom pen only, not to your finger or some other plastic tipped pen.

I have a toshiba satellite r15-s822. I am trying to remove the bios password. I removed the rtc battery. Is there another cmos battery on the motherboard? What am i doing wrong?


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your Toshiba Satellite R15-S822 laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery (which is on the motherboard) or the jumper.
