Hi June here is how you clear the temp file folder on your pc please do this as i say do not take short cuts as you will not get to the correct temp folder.. go to my computer then double click C drive then double click documents and settings then double click on the folder that has the name of your computer on it then double click local settings then double click temporary internet files then in top left corner click edit then click select all then next to edit click file then click on delete then you will have all the internet temp files deleted, i also would suggest getting a very good program called CCleaner this will remove all the junk built up in the registry which is actually the thing that slows pc's down allot, i use it myself and i have found it to be the very best of any pc cleaner about as it does not delete important files from your pc that you do not know what they are about like some other pc cleaners, you can download it from this trusted site
hope this helps please rate and vote thanks

Clean my mail box of spam

Most email accounts these days offer a second access point: a Web page. If your account is supplied by Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail/ (or another Microsoft service), or your cable company, for example, you can edit your messages online, using your computer. That way you have the benefit of a bigger screen, a mouse and a keyboard, so it's quick and easy to delete huge swaths of junk mail.
At, for example, you can click the first checkbox to select it and then Shift-click the last one; all the messages in between are automatically selected. Try to select the ones you think are spam and delete them.

No sim card installed

Internet should be already on a laptop. It could be tough, the best thing to try on win XP is click on Control Panel in the Windows start menu (that should be on the part of the menu that is NOT all programs) then click Administative Tools (with the little hammer and folder and pc picture Icon) then you'll see 2 little gears called Services, click on that. Those Services should be in alphabetical order if not alphabitize them by clicking on the coloums heading (it says name) this click will sort the services by alphabetical order. Now scroll up or down to the services that start with the letter W. Find Windows Zero Configuration, and double click that. Change Start Up Type in the drop down box to Automatic, and click START just below it. Click OK at the very bottom. Maybe restart your PC, is best. You have to install a driver get it online or use the disc that came with your wireless card. Usually the ones from online don't always install automatically like a CD does, but you can find most drivers from the manufactures web site. If the online one doesn't install automatically, you'll have to click My Computer with the RIGHT HAND mouse button click the very bottom choice called properties from the list that drops down, then you should have a window with 7 tabs at the top, click the one that says Hardware. Click on the very top button Device Manager this opens a window that shows every piece on mechanical hardware and some virtual hardware install inside your PC in groups. One group should be open (or expanded) if your wireless card is not installed properly. There will be an entry that say UNKNOWN DEVICE with a tiny yellow circle with an exclamation point in it Click that the new box that opens usually has four or five tabs at the top, sometimes only three, but the second tab is almost guarenteed to say Driver click on Driver and then the second button down on that page is Update Driver, click that and then use the Browse button to browse around your PC for the driver files, either on the disc or where you downloaded them (My Documents, desktop, some other folder) if the download is a Zip file you have to Extract all files to a folder and them browse to that folder. Win XP is easy just double click the download it opens in a folder and to your left in the folder window but towards the top there is a command it says Extract Files, just look carfully at the next step to see where, or change where they will be unzipped to. Browsing for the driver is easy Update Driver, next Browse, find the location on the CD or on you PC look for a folder that says Drivers, or XP, or x86 and select it if the OK button at the bottom turns black theres a chance thats the right folder, just click OK. If it's not you'll be told by Windows so just try again in a different folder, you'll find it, when you hit the right one your Wireless card will install. Restart. And a little mini computer Monitor should appear way over to the very bottom right of your monitor in the Notification Area. Double click that little tiny monitor icon (the one with the single monitor picture not the one with the double monitors as that is your WIRED connection) and you should get the Choose A Wireless Network window, or Wireless Network Connection Status window, if you get the network status window your already connected, but could be connected to a dead router that the peoples cable has been shut off for a year but they never unplugged their router, or the wrong network. Down below on the network status window click View Wireless Networks, and that will bring you to Choose a Wireless Network, click on yours, click Connect down below and your on. Sounds easy huh? Not in my lifetime. Call me. KEN

How to browse an other person computer using driver software? how is tat possible? bocause im facing a problem tat some 1 browsing my pictures

It's possible that your network settings are set to share picture and media files. You can check this out (vista) by typing "network and sharing center" in the search bar at the bottom of the start menu, enter the program, and it has a sort of check list of your networking stuff, I don't know a lot about all that, but I do know that it has an option for file sharing, one for public folder sharing, and one for media sharing, and a few other ones. That's the first place I would check if you're concerned about somebody remotely getting into your files.

Its also possible, if you have at ANY time put the pics online, that they could be viewed that way as well, I don't know if you've checked out , or , but you can pull up almost anything that anybody has put online, all you need to know is their name or email address.

Lastly, aside from not putting them online if you dont' want them seen, I would suggest putting them into a folder and going into folder settings and clicking the option to make that folder hidden. I'm not sure exactly how the networking works (if it views hidden folders?) but if you get your pics out of that public file, and hide them on top of that, you should be pretty safe.
