    Clean up

    Download CCleaner, delete temp files. Open My Computer, right click the C: drive choose Properties/Tools Tab/Defragment Now/Defragment. After that download, install www.malwarebytes.org and run a Full Scan, delete all nasties.

    Ensure that you have enough memory and that they are performing properly.

    You should defragment the harddrive like every week, Defraggler can help. If that doesn't fix, use CCleaner to check for errors in registries that cause problems.

    01. Delete All from Directory C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Local Settings\Temp
    02. Start->Run ketik msconfig and enter. On StartUp please empty All then restart
    03. Then On Your Harddisk Drive click right and properties. choose disk cleaup. choose all then ok. Do it same on another harddisk drive
    04. Start->Programs->Accessories-> System Tools->Defragment. Do it on your another Harddisk Drive either
    05. Use Advanced System Care http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html#. you can download it free. Using that can made your computer more faster. ASC can scan for spyware, defragment, release memory, disk cleanup and much more.
    i hope this useful

    Why do not you defragment disk?

    It is quite useful for your computer. You need to do that immediately and regularly.
    If you have too many files in the computer, it is better once a week.

    Good luck.

    YEP,ccleaner and defraggler should be run weekly.
    also msconfig to prevent pain in the ass programs from starting themselves,
    more ram,virus scan.
    sometimes backing up your files and reinstalling or recovering your o.s. (although time consuming) can be a good option if u want a fresh start.

    Of course, you can.

    Just follow the steps below:

    In fact, almost the temporary files are restored in the C:/Docucments and Settings/Users’ name, you can remove them as follows:

    1. Open C: /Documents and Settings/Users’ name/Cookies, delete all the files, because it restores the left index files when visiting websites.

    2. In the C: /Documents and Settings/Users’ name/Local Settings/History, delete the files since they belong to history record.

    3. In the C: /WINDOWS/Temp, remove all these temporary files.

    4. In the C:/Documents and Settings/Users’ name/Local Settings/Temp, remove such user’s temporary visiting files.

    5. Open C:/Documents and Settings/Users’ name/Local Settings/Temporary Internet Files, delete all the page files.

    6. In the C:/Documents and Settings/Users’ name/Recent folder, you can delete all these shortcuts of recent browsed files.

    7. In the C: /WINDOWS/Software Distribution/download, get rid of all the temporary files when downloading.

    8. In the C: /WINDOWS/Driver Cache/386, delete all the compressed files.

    And then, you can clean regsitry. Well I turn to a third-party tool rather than do that by myself.
