Removing Temporary Files

Run once a week:

            Your computer can pick up and store temporary files when you're looking at web pages and even when you're working on files in programs, such as Microsoft Word. Over time, these files will slow your computer's performance. You can use the Windows Disk Cleanup screen to rid your computer of these deadbeat files.

To run Disk Cleanup:

For Windows 7 users:

1.      In the Start menu, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup. Disk Cleanup will automatically begin to scan your disk for files you can delete.

Note: If the Disk Cleanup Drive Selection dialog box appears, select the hard disk drive that you want to clean up, and then click OK.

 2.      Click the Disk Cleanup tab, and then select the check boxes for the files you want to delete.

 3.      When you finish selecting the files you want to delete, click OK, and then, to confirm the operation, click Delete files. Disk Cleanup then removes all unnecessary files from your computer.

The More Options tab is available when you choose to clean files from all users on the computer.
