Reesie, This Is How I Do It
Double click on the Temp folder within Windows. There may be a bunch of files in this folder that were placed there by various program installations and uninstallations. Normally, these all should be safe to delete, UNLESS you have 'saved' any personal documents here. Just to be careful, highlight a small group of files and delete them to the Recycle Bin. Restart the computer, run the programs, and generally test to make sure that any necessary files haven't been removed. If you don't experience any problems, and you shouldn't, then remove that bunch from the Recycle Bin, then choose another group of files from the C\Windows\Temp folder and delete them to the Recycle Bin.
After removing all the above files, and if youre using WinMe, temporarily disable your 'System Restore' by RIGHT clicking on 'My Computer', choose 'Properties'. When that loads, click on the 'Performance' tab, click on the 'File System' button, click the 'Repair/Troubleshooting' button, and then place a CHECK mark in the 'Disable System Restore' button. Click 'Apply' if its highlighted, then OK, then restart the computer. This will decrease the ever-increasing size of System Restore. Restart the computer again, then 're-enable' System Restore by UNCHECKING the box mentioned above. At this time run Scandisk and Defrag to correct and align the file system to its optimum per my previous suggestion.
Hope this helps.
