    Actually it is C: that is at 16% free space, and D: that has 93% free space.

    The last time I deleted programs, it screwed up my computer and I had to do a recovery.

    All my programs came installed on my computer. I don't have any disks for the programs.

    This was a really was a way for them to save money not me. I will have to pick up some CD's so I can copy the programs to CD before moving them.

Solution of low disk space


HARD DISK MAINTENANCE TO KEEP COMPUTER RUNNING EFFICIENTLY.

Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently.
This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access.
Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too.
Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment.
When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive.
Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

My laptop is running very slow any suggestions


This can be cause by many things, from a virus to malware to not enough free space. So, start with clear your browser cashe, and history. Next check your computer for viruses and malware. If you need an Anti Virus program, Avast is very good and free. Avast website. Malware, is stuff websites put in your computer to track your web usage. A good Anti Malware program is called Malwarebytes also free click on the above link to that site and download. Next is not enough free space, or not enough usable free space, Running a defrag on the Hard drive will help a great deal with slow performance. Try this program called MyDefrag, also free and a very good program better than the windows virsion due to the fact it defrags in a wraparound state. If you want to conserve space when you type text you use wraparound as apposed to line by line. Click here for MyDefrag download. Next will be to clean the registry, if you install a lot of programs and then remove them, you may need to clean up the files left behind. Ashampoo offers some programs you can use for trial to clean your registry. Take these steps to speeding up your computer . Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

My pc is slow run


TRY THIS :-
Free up disk space. A hard drive that is close to being full will drastically slow down your computer. You can clear up space by deleting temporary internet files, empty your recycle bin, remove programs that you do not use, put important files on an external hard drive.
Another way to free up disk space is to use "Disk Cleanup" on your Windows PC. To do this, click "start" and go to "Accessories", go to "System Tools", and click "Disk Cleanup".
Scan for Viruses, Adware, and Spyware. These nasty programs can slow down your computer worse than anything. I would recommend purchasing software that can remove all three of these common problems.
Don't automatically start up programs when you turn your computer on. Close any programs that you do not use that open when you start up your computer. These programs will run in the background and steal RAM (Random Access Memory).

Free space of Intel Centrino Duo is lessening


Any anti airus program will use more and more disk space as time goes on. Every time it updates, it gets more virus information. Also, if you use the internet, you will get cookies and junk from every site you go to. Under tools-internet options, clear everything off when you get done with the internet. Anything you add to your computer and then remove, leaves a lot of info. in the registry files. Ge a registry cleaner and run it. It will not only get rid of a lot of junk, it will also help your computer run faster. There is NO way to keep your hard drive from geting less and less space as time rolls on, other than removing a lot of stuff.
Get AVAST AntiVirus. It's free and just as good as the ones you pay a lot of money for. It also updates automatically.

Slow start with home edition of xp


The HP Pavilion a350n Desktop PC, came out in late 2003.

This suggests to me, that you may have had the computer a long time.

You need to clean the harddrive of,
A) Unnecessary files,
B) Fragmented files,
C) Unused programs, and applications,
D) Plus frequently defragment the harddrive.

A, and B.
The best method is to use a Registry Cleaner. I recommend a Free one.

Why?
A) It is Free.
B) It works as well, or better than the paid fore versions.

CCleaner.

This is Wikipedia, and the article on Ccleaner,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ccleaner

The home page for Ccleaner is on the upper right, underneath the illustration.

Should you wish to download, install, and use this free program, come back with a comment, and I'll walk you through using it.
After you know how you'll find out it's really easy.

Every time you go to a website, you pick up cookies. These are harmless, but after a given time they take up space on your harddrive.

Whenever your harddrive is more than 50 percent full, your computer starts to slow down. You really start noticing it, when your harddrive is more than 70 percent full.

30 percent Free Space.

With Windows running, Left-click on Start, then Left-click on My Computer.
Look at Local Disk (C:)

This is your harddrive.
What percentage of Free Space do you have?

Don't see this? It could be the type of View you are using.
Go to the top header. Look for the icon that looks like a rectangle with 6 colored squares in it, and has a black triangle pointing down.
(To the right of the yellow Folders icon)

Click on the Black triangle. It's a Down Arrow. There will be a drop down list. Left-click on - Details

Now what percentage of Free Space do you have?

Whenever you have a program, or application that you have deleted, there will be file fragments left behind. These take up space on the harddrive.

When your harddrive has about 5 to 10 percent left of Free Space, your computer will crawl like a Snail.
You can't defragment your harddrive if you do not have enough Free Space left on your harddrive.

Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.

After the Add/Remove Programs list has populated, look for programs, or applications you may have installed, and rarely, If ever use anymore.

Get rid of the one's you don't need.
DO NOT Remove any Windows programs!

Unused programs/applications take up harddrive free space.

After you have removed all programs/applications that are unused, run Ccleaner.
Clean the Windows registry.

D) After you have enough Fee Space on the harddrive, you can run defragment.

(Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Rearrange Items on Your Computer to Make Programs Run Faster.

If you do not see Performance and Maintenance, you are in the Classic view.
If you go up to the top left corner, you will see the Control Panel heading, and underneath it -
'Switch to Category View'

Left-click on it. If you desire the Classic View again, you can always switch back)

You may get a comment about using your restoration CD disk, to restore your computer.

1) IF, you still have the Restoration CD disk, you have my respect! Very few of us still have this disk after 3 years, much less almost 7.

2) BE AWARE, that you will restore the computer back to the way it was, when it came from the factory.

Back to Day 1.

FROM THE FACTORY

This means any Programs, or Applications you have installed, or downloaded, will be GONE!

This means any personal documents you have will be GONE!

My Photos, My Videos, My Music, and any saved documents, or documents you have made. (My Documents folder)

GONE!

Just wanted you to be aware of that.

Back up your personal documents to CD, or DVD disks. (DVD-R, or RW for videos)

You need the program, or application CD disks, to put them back on the computer.
You cannot copy them to a disk.

I await your questions.

Cant download new Windows live messenger, not enough space!!!


Hi,

Then you need to clear out more space to your c drive, you could try a program called **** cleaner (ccleaner)

http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

if you haven't emptied your temporary files etc in a while, this program will most likely clear out enough space for you to install live messenger.

I can't download a world of warcraft game cause it says not


Go to control panel, add/remove programs and remove all programs that you do not use, such as free trials, etc. Once you have removed them, reboot computer and you should be good to go. You need to free up space on your hard drive to install additional software and this is the easiest way to do it. You can see how much space is on your hard drive by going to my computer and right clicking on C: and then choosing properties. The picture will tell you how much space is being used. If you have allot of music on your computer, you can burn them to CD and then delete from computer as these hog allot of space on computer.
