Pc health is a new virus. I am trying to disable it. try renaming the files in the folder with a right click or some other way if the other tries do not work. Also change the folder options by first making the PCHEALTH folder read only and then making it all not read only.
you will have to delete the User and Software registry keys after reinstalling windows.

Hello do you want to get rid to the program for good, I my self have never used Pc health.
What I would do is open your control panel>Add Remove Programs> Now find the Program Pc Health> Remove, Follow the directions and take it out. Restart your computer now and when it starts up go into your My computer. Right click the Hdd and open programs. If You get a window that tells you hidden files, Don't panic,
Go a head and open that file up and then open programs there once into that look for the Pc Health in there and right click and delete, Then restart one more time and your ready to go.. Write back here if you still are having problems, Oh Sorry I amost forgot If you don't want to remove it you can also Disable it in your control panel too. Look for Startup programs you can disable from there, I need to know what your operating system is Xp Vista let me know, Thank You

What is the best program utility for cleaning hard drive on windows vista?

WinDirStat is one of the best utilities to help you locate what files/folders are using the most space on your hard drive. That way you can find and delete them.

1 Answer


Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.

  1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties .
  3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
  4. In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window. Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
  5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
  6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
    2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select the View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
  7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
  8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
  9. If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
  10. Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
    CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
    Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
    To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
  11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
  12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
    4. Click OK .
  13. Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

My pc hard disk loaded with some stuff making the hard disk full I have no idea why the hard disk is becoming full. how do I remove and block them?

Hi Dannymens921, you can download a program called WinDirStat that will tell you the folder size of each folder on any attached drive. You can use this to determine which folder has used up all the space on your computer. Be wary of deleting anything in the Windows folder or Program file folder. Edge

Hard drive space is being taken by unknown entity. HP mini 1000. Have read every blog. I cannot find what is taking my space and i want to remove it!

How do you know something is taking up space on your hard drive? What is your operating system? First thing you should do is check your waste basket. Is it full? Then check your cookies and temporary internet files. Delete all you do not need. Then if you go to your Windows Explorer, you can check the size of each file on you hard drive. Go to Local Disk C:. Open all folders by clicking on each + sign to the left of each folder. Then start at the top and work your way down checking each folder. You should see a folder that has a lot of files in it, or one large file, maybe a folder you do not recognize. Click on and delete the folder that is taking up to much space. If you delete any folders do not empty you waste basket until you are sure you did not delete anything you will need.

My pc is so slow plz ell something

How long have you had this computer. Over time no matter what windows will slow down. Your best bet is to remove as many programs as you can from starting up when you boot the computer. This will speed up the boot time etc. Also I would need all the stats of the computer, but the sure fire way to get any computer running again is to back up all critical files and reformat and reinstall windows.
Thank you,

1. Click on the Start Button, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then Disk Cleanup.
2. Click OK for drive C:
3. After it calculates the amount of space.
4 Please place a checkbox in each box by clicking on it.
5. Note the number where it says “total amount of space you gain”
6. Click on the OK button, and then click on Yes. It might take time..
Step 2 -
1. Click on Start button, click the RUN button and type in "MSCONFIG", then press enter or click on OK
2. Please select the button that is labeled “Selective Startup”.
3. Now look across the top row of tabs. Click on the one labeled “Startup”
4. You will see a list of items in the center box. ( make sure that all boxes are checked)
5. click on "disable all"
6. Again look across the top row of tabs. Click on the one labeled “Services”
7. Put a check on " Hide all microsoft services " ( note: this is very important )
8. Then click on " Disable all" and then click on " apply" and then "ok"
9. It will ask you to reboot the pc
Step 3 -

2. In the text box in the Run window, type %Temp% and click OK. A folder full of files and other folders will appear.
3 All of the folders and files you see in this Temp folder are no longer being used by Windows XP and can safely be deleted.
Step 4 -
1. Open My Computer.
2. Right-click the local disk volume that you want to defragment mostly its (c:\), and then click Properties. 3. On the Tools tab, click Defragment Now
this process may take a long time around 4-5 hrs depending on the state of your computer. So, you can do this at night and leave it running till moring
Follow these four steps and you computer will surely work faster than before

All The Best!!!

Computer says no disc space left

which means that your hard disk is full (or very near to). Decide which files you want to perhaps put on cds of dvds, then erase them from your hard disk to see if the situation improves.

Slow starting Dell Inspiron 2650

The first thing I would look at is hard drive free space. Almost universally, critically slow systems have a hard drive with no free space. What most people don't seem to understand is that Windows requires a minimum of 10% of the hard drive to be free space to allow the operating system room for swap files and other temporary files needed to run the OS efficiently. This can be made worst by the fact that Windows only reports the size of a file on the hard drive, not the amount of space actually allotted to the file (This has to do with cluster size and the fact that only one file is written to any part of a cluster and in this case it is small files that waste a lot of space)

Things you can do.

1. Run disk cleanup, and get rid all temporary files.
2. If you use an email client like Outlook/Outlook express, delete unwanted emails, then empty the deleted items folder.
3. Open Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Options, delete all cookies and temporaty internet files.
4. Go to add/remove programs in control panel, uninstall any programs or applications you do not use.
5. If you have a large amount of pictures or music files on the system, burn them to CDs or DVDs and free up that space.
6. Go to System Properties, Advanced Tab, performance section, settings button, select Adjust for Best Performance, Click Apply, Click Advanced TAB, Virtual Memory, Change Button, Select System Managed Size, Click Apply close then reboot.
7. Go to MY Computer, right click C:, Click Properties, Tools Tab, Defragment the Hard Drive
8. Adjust power management to Maximum perofrmance.
