Hello youngmomma,

I would leave the files as they may be required at a later date. You could use the following to help speed up your PC.

Hi jess,

How much RAM do you have?

What is the capacity of the hdd, and how much free space do you have?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
