Non-computer person here trying to get system as tight and fast as possible. What are all those files inside the "C" windows folder ? What are all those files in any of those folders ?? Some are self explanitory, but most, I have no idea ? Are they things that are running, are they slowing anything down - is there a master list to explain what's in there or what should not be in there ?? Confusing !!

A good place to look up information on particular file is the Bleeping Computer File Database (see the tab at the top of any Bleeping Computer page).

Otherwise try typing the filename into an internet search engine (such as Google).
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
