The files you are attempting to find may be hidden. You can view hidden files in Windows Explorer by opening My Computer, selecting Tools > Folder Options > View > then select Show Hidden Files and Folders, then select Apply. If this doesn't help, please clarify your problem.

You need to uninstall programs, simple as that. The size of the files is to large to back up with your current programs and that is why you are receiving the message, your best bet is to try and get rid of things you don't use anymore. That or just move some of them over to a flashdrive/ portable storage.

2...Defrag the hard drive...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Defragrager
3...Delete any old programs,pictures,files,etc that you do not use anymore.
4...Move all your programs,pictures,files,etc that you want to keep onto a portable hard drive.
6...Add more memory to the computer, add as much as possible your system will allow.
7...Restore your computer back to a time when it was running faster...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
8...Reload the operating system....Left click on "My Computer", right click on your main hard drive (normally C drive) then click "Format".
This will wipe everything from your computer and when you use the discs that came with your computer or the ones you made you will then insert them into the CD/DVD player and reinstall your operating system and drivers.
This will bring your old computer back to new operating condition.

Loading too much

Hi. I'll give some ways how to lessen the loading of your computer.

1. Do a disk cleanup everyday.
2. Once a week do a defragmentation to your computer.
3. Delete files that you don't need anymore to have a big disk space.
4. Before using your computer, scan it with your anti-virus.
5. Try to upgrade your memory. Maybe your memory is lower than 1GB.

My emachine is out of memory spaces what do i do

First of all,
delete any files that you do not need, uninstall any program that you don't need or use anymore.

Find files, images, audio files, video files that you don't need to store on your machine any more.

One last suggestion, perhaps you would want to move all of the file, if you don't want to delete anything, to an external hard drive or purchase an additional hard drive as an extension to the internal hard drive.


P.S. Please rate if this solution was helpful.

How do i use a memory stick

How to use a memory stick or USB
I will assume you are using windows. as you can see your USB memory stick has a metal connector with a plastic insert; that was made to fit in the connector on the back or sides of computers. the computer has several places to insert the memory but this device will fit properly in just the correct jack and it will go in in just one position, you can not turn it over and insert it.
after you do that windows will install the driver (software) for the device and it is going to open a window asking what do you want to do at this point you can click on any option but if you want to see your files or save files, click on the folder that says view files.
that opens the device, if it is brand new there would be no files. At that point you can drag all kinds of files in to the memory and store them.
the other option after you insert the memory, close the asking window and click on my computer from here you can see your memory stick, click on it and it will open, drag files to it or out of it in to your computer.
when you are creating documents or files you can save them in to your memory stick. Just click on file--save as--computer--memory stick (name or model)--save or ok.
when you are ready to disconnect your memory stick go to the clock area on the right corner, there is an icon of a connector with a green check mark click on that and then stop device, select your memory stick-stop, wait for confirmation and then you can unplug it >>>>failing to do this may damage your files or memory stick<<<<<<

This machine has been getting slower and slower until it is almost nonfunctional. Is there anything we can do to improve it

run a GOOD antivirus scan (free ones are okay like AVG) then boot into safe-mode with networking and download and run Advanced System Care (the free version) from WWW.IOBIT.COM . you can also go to taskmanager and check what processes are using up the cpu and memory (maybe a virus or just a program thats running that you dont use anymore)
