Improving PC Performance | Disk Cleanup

There are a variety of ways in which your computers performance can be improved without needing to purchase new hardware. This can be done by running a variety of general computer maintenance tasks. One of the ways is to clear off or compress some of the old and generally unused files which are stored on your hard drive. Disk Cleanup will identify files on your system which haven’t been used for a long time and will generate a list of suggestions of what can be deleted or compressed to save space on your hard drive and will carry out this task for you.

To run Disk Cleanup go to Start –> All Programs –> Accessories –> System Tools –> Disk Cleanup

The program will then scan the files on your hard drive/s and will then give you a list of suggestions of what can be deleted or compressed on your hard drive as shown below:
