Doing A Little Cleaning Up In XP To Improve Performance.

Taking a little time to do a little house cleaning will yield loads in performance.  Especially if you are one who does not do this on a regular schedule.  Junk files pile up all over your hard drive fragmenting it making it run slower.  By following these steps in the order that I have given them you should notice better performance.

1. First go to Control Panel/Add/Remove programs.

Remove the programs you don't use or want. When you have that taken care up then do your cleaning.

Just go down through the list and get rid of any programs that you don't use.

2. Go to Start/Run and type %temp% and hit Enter.

Type %temp% and hit Enter

3. Use The Edit Menu to select all Files and Folders.

Just Click On Delete the selected files.

4. Next go to Start/ Programs/ Accessories/ System Tools and run Disk Cleanup.

Select your Drive and Click on the OK Button.

Takes a few minutes depending on how long its been since you have cleaned up the junk.

Make sure everything is checked before hitting OK.

You will be asked one more time if you want to perform these actions.  Click on Yes.

5. Next go back to System Tools and run Defragment on the hard drive.

If you have any problems with your Disk Defragmenter Program Restarting over and over you will have to restart you computer in Safe Mode.

That should take care of your 'spring cleaning'

Note: You might also want to run Windows update if it's been a while. If you don't want to upgrade to IE7 make sure you remove the check before running updates.
