Doesn't your computer already come with an internal way to free up disk space?

 

Click the "Start" button'             

Open the "Accessories" folder

Click on the "System Tools" folder.

Click "Disk Cleanup." Select the type of files you want to  clean up and click "Clean System Files."

Inside the "System Tools" folder, click "Disk Defragmenter." Click "Defragment  Now" to start defragmenting the disk.

In addition you can go into the control panel and uninstall any programs you deem unnecessary. Also, you can go through your aduio and video files and delete any you don't think you'll want to keep.

 

rtxx and everybody else.

Make sure to do as it says above and below here.

And then restart your computer.

Then download and use CCleaner, when finished restart your computer again.

Don't use any Internet site to check your computer with.

One last thing:

Download and use:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

The free version and use it, then restart your computer.

Then download:

VIPRERescue from here:

http://www.vipreantivirus.com/live/Download2/

Or from here:

http://www.vipreantivirus.com/live/

And use it, then restart your computer.

That should be more than enough for anybody who needs help with their computer.

If you would happen to need a little more help you can try one or more of the next freeware programs:

ToolWiz care (All Tools For Computer Care)

System ninja

Glary Utilities

Comodo Cleaning Essentials

There are many more programs, but that might be enough for most people.

Use the freeware versions of those programs, find them with a search engine such as Google.

          Toolwiz did a great job cleaning out junk files and registry errors but did not speed up pc. Would anyone know of a free web that might increase speedup  for me. I am sure someone does on LP. You are great people with ideas. Thanks again.Sun Smiley

                To speed up a computer it needs to have a faster CPU and enough good quality RAM memory, second, a fast enough hard drive with enough storage space on it.

                But to speed up the Internet you need a faster Internet connection.

                ----------------

                Both: Your Pc's speed and your Internet connection speed are probably more than good enough as they are right now.

                Maybe the only 2 things that you might need to check are:

                #1: To see if your hard drive still has enough free space on it.

                If it doesn't, uninstall some programs that you don't really need, in order to make more free space on your hard drive.

                #2: Check to see if your computer has enough RAM memory on it.

                It it doesn't have enough RAM on it, check to see if it will take more RAM, if it can take more RAM, buy more RAM for it.

                --------------

                Before you spend any money on your computer have somebody check your Pc first to see if you really need to spend money on it, also do that before you uninstall too many programs from your computer.

                ---------------

                Too bad that not everybody knows enough about computers, to know might save people time and money.

                ---------------

                Don't buy a new computer unless you really need to.

                Your new computer might soon become as bad as the old computer if you don't know what you are doing.

                Best find a local person who knows about computers and have him or her check your computer.

                --------------

                  Even my very old (Kind of antique) Win98SE computer is more than fast enough (Almost a "Speed Demon") both on and off the Internet, on the Internet with a DSL connection, off the Internet running programs with its antique CPU and its antique very little RAM.

                  ------------------------

                  My newest computer is a WinXP computer, as fast as it is, it doesn't seem to be too much faster than my Win98SE computer, either on or off the Internet.

                  --------------------------

                  Both computers are fast enough.

                  --------------------------

                  Some programs are just CPU and memory hogs.
