Re: disk clen up
First start by getting rid of all the mp3's that might be on your hard drive. Download www.ccleaner.com and run it- it will get rid of most of the temp files on your hard drive. Go into add remove programs and delete unneeded programs. Online support can help you do this too. Try www.plumchoice.com they can fix it over the internet!
What you probably need is a much bigger hard drive- they're cheap, but you might need help installing it, and setting it up. A local computer guru can do this easily.

You can try and compress your file this will give you 15 to 20 percent more space. Also, download CCleaner and run it this will also help clean up disk space. And run disk cleaner and last run a defrag
A slow computer could be caused by a number of things - 1.Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM. 2.Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3.Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4.Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it. 5.Install latest Windows updates. 6.Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7.Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing. 8.Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently. Run the following programs - Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space. Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.
Clean up your disk space.
Go to Start Menu Search Bar and write down "Disk Cleanup" ,click on it to start the program,Select the drive you want to clean.In most cases C:\Drive and make a cleanup.The program will scan for unnecessary files.Next click on cleanup system files.
After you free up space on C:\ Drive ,word will work just fine.
This could be such a wide range of issue, multiple solutions are possible.
1. Run a full computer scan with virus protection software...NOT NORTONS! Just trust me on that...
2. Perhaps you are running too many programs at once, or very large programs simultaneously and your computer RAM or CPU cannot keep up.
3. Perhaps your HDD needs defragmenting
4. Could be good to run a Check Disk
5. Run the Cleanup wizard to delete any unnecessary files ie temp internet files, temporary install files etc.
Unfortunately, the list goes on. There really isn't enough information here to give an accurate diagnoses
To remove temp files and old compressed files run Disk Cleanup to free up disk space.
Click on My Computer then right click on the C drive and then Disk cleanup, if you have never done this before it will take a long time to complete. Then repeat this for the D drive.
Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out approx. once every month to keep the computer operating at its best.
If the disk runs on a fat 32 file system it can not take files that is bigger then about 4GB, so if the file is bigger you will youst get up a message that the disk i full, if this is the problem try converting the disk to NTFS.
