VERY SLOW ,WHAT SHOULD I LOOK AT. - Acer TravelMate 212T Notebook

Answers :

Some computers can be slow or short of hard drive space for quite simple reasons.
\015\012Windows and other program hide temporary files in lots of different places
\015\012The best option is not always a program or utility and if you want to do as much as you can for FREE like I do then you have a few options.
\015\0121. First you need to be in windows explorer.
\015\0122. Click TOOLS and FOLDER OPTIONS
\015\0123. Now click the VIEW tab
\015\0124. Tick the Show Hidden Files And Folders option
\015\012Unpick Hide Protected Operating System Files (it may warn you but you can ignore it)
\015\0125. Click APPLY then OK
\015\0126. NOTE some files may not delete this is OK Also DO NOT DELETE the folder itself where mentioned for cleaning.
\015\0127. Using windows explorer go into the WINDOWS folder and look for a directory called TEMP (it is possible there may be more than one)
\015\0128. Select all the contents and delete them. Do the same for any other temp folder e.g. temp000
\015\0129. Now navigate to Documents and Settings
\015\012There are quite a few folders in here that can be cleaned up
\015\01210. Look for folders named "Local Settings" In there you will find more TEMP folders that can be cleaned out
\015\01211. Now look inside the Temporary Internet Files. Delete anything EXCEPT cookies. Otherwise passwords for some sites you have stored may need you to type the password again.
\015\01212. Do this for each user / profile you see.
\015\01213. Now check the C: drive itself and see if there are any Temp folders and clean those out too
\015\012To prevent accidental deletion of any files windows needs you should go back to step (4) and change the two settings back to their original
