I have a Toshiba satelite laptop that runs slow and says that it is neary full. I need to free some some space but do not know what to delete. Everything on it seams to relate to microsoft.


You may have installed every softwares on your System Drive (typically C:/, where the OS is installed). Try to install them on other partitions, this will free up some spaces.



You may try with Disk Cleanup utility. To use it go to: Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Disk CleanUp. This will ask you which of the disk to be cleaned up. Select the desired System Drive Letter and click on OK. You may delete Windows Error reporting files, System error memory dump files from there. You can also delete older restore points by clicking on Clean Up System Files. Select System drive letter as before and click on more options. Under System Restore and shadow copies click clean up. This will remove all but the latest restore point.



Hope this helps, Mrityunjay

Restoration problem


How often are restore points created?
Restore points are created automatically every day, and just before significant system events, such as the installation of a program or device driver. You can also create a restore point manually.

How much hard disk space does System Restore require?
To store restore points, you need at least 300 megabytes (MB) of free space on each hard disk that has System Protection turned on. System Restore might use up to 15 percent of the space on each disk. As the amount of space fills up with restore points, System Restore will delete older restore points to make room for new ones.

How long are restore points saved?
Restore points are saved until the hard disk space System Restore reserves is filled up. As new restore points are created, old ones are deleted. If you turn off System Protection (the feature that creates restore points) on a disk, all restore points are deleted from that disk. When you turn System Protection back on, new restore points are created.

The restore point is a built in utility by microsoft, you can't have the option to configure the settings!!!

Hi i`ve got a compaq laptop, and it`s and old version, no cam,bluetooth .. got it a year back .. i`m online w`ever i get the time .. offlate its been very slow .. i`ve not done a disk clean up as i dont...


Go to Start Menu, point at Control Panel and right click then select 'Open'.

First, check the programs you have installed. It's songs and videos right? Then, open "Programs and Features".

Take your time to select programs you don't need one after the other and click "Uninstall". Just leave Media players, converters and burners or special type readers/writers.

Secondly, check if Windows Update is doing a quick and silent one on your software. Still in Control Panel, click "Windows Update" and choose to turn off updates entirely.

Now, the baloon comes up at your task bar. Well, in that section of control panel, choose "Change the way Security Center" alerts me and uncheck "Updates".

Thirdly, Update your antivirus and do a full scan of your computer.

Fourthly, if you use Microsoft Security Essentials, you can have a restore point created automatically on each scheduled system scan.

In that way you can do a disk cleanup after such scan. To be on the safer side, keep "System Restore" on.

After a disk cleanup, check if your files are intact and do the disk cleanup option in the second tab of your disk properties "Clean Restore points" except the most recent.

I guess the System Restore option should be your point of call and disk cleanup to the most recent.

I hope this works for you.

Fail to reinstall the OS from the original disc it came with


the disk that it came with is most likely just a recovery disk, you will need to find someone that has the full vista install disk, and reinstall it from that. make sure its the same version of vista that you have and use your cd key on the green microsoft sticker on the computer tower.

RestorePoint is UNABLE to restore my computer to a previous point


Check the disk space in your hard drive to make sure it's not too full. Turn off system restore, reboot and turn it back on.
You may need to run a registry cleaner if these suggestions don't work. Good luck.

Procedure for total pc restore on emachines T5085


Did you receive a restore CD along with your eMachines computer when you purchased it? If you have such a disk, that is the easiest way to do a full system restore. If you do not have this disk, you can obtain one via emachines support. This is the most recommended method for a full restore. If your machine boots up fine, you can check to see if you have a restore point in the Windows System restore. If you ever had to turn the system restore off (for virus removal or something), you will not be able to to a complete restore this way.

Good luck

P.S. If this information was helpful, please rate this solution. Thanks!

Recovery disk full and windows explorer keeps feezing


right-click on "My Computer" then select properties, then System restore.

You now have two choices, expand the % disk space to use for the system restore, or Turn off System Restore, which will wipe out all past restore points.

Do the first one, see if everything goes back to normal. if not, then run disk cleaner foundat: start, programs. accessories, systems tools. This should mkae your Operating system speed up a bit by cleaning out temp files and other clutter. Then defrag, also found in the same folder as Disk cleaner. Next, do a search of your entire hard drive for all files ending in .tmp. delete them all. Those steps combined, should speed things up considerably. Only when everything is working fine again should you turn of system restore and then turn it back on again to get everything cleaned out. This last should be a last resort only, when you are running out of Hard drive space.
