Clean-up of green, "fuzzy" stuff is part of life.
I clean out green 'fuzzy' left overs in the refrig and then reorganize it.
I clean my PC of temp files, programs I don't use any more, registry trash, and then reorganize it too.
I do both CAREFULLY ... I watch what chemicals I use around refrig so as to not spoil good food. I watch what tools I use around my PC so as to not spoil (or delete) good software, etc.
For my PC I carefully use tools like: Spybot S&D, AdAware, CCleaner, Adv. System Care 3, AutoRunS (www.sysinternals.com) and of course Microsofts disk clean/defrag & RegClean ... all free. Basically I (or I let the toolset) delete only what files, pictures, music, software, and/or registry entries I KNOW I don't want. I then defrag the disk drive, then defrag the registry.
Like my refrig, I don't clean my PC all that often and I am careful what I toss. For my refrig, I let my wife have the final decision on what stays/goes. For my PC, since I know more than anyone else using it, I tend to leave stuff/junk when I don't know what it is or if I'm not sure I will need it again rather than trashing it and hoping to get it out of the trash can before it is gone for good.
Defragging the hard drives and the registry make the most performance difference, but disposing of the green, fuzzy stuff I know I don't want allows the defragging to be more effective.
I can find things faster in the refrig when it is clean/organized.
Windows can find what it needs faster when the disk drives and registry are clean/organized too.
Just my 2 cents folks,
Goodtime Charlie, VA
