I bought new laptop - HP PavilionDV7. It is nice and very fast.
After I removed some games I noticed that my pc started working very slowly.
I tried to fix my computer with my old registry cleaner that I used on XP, but when I finished I had to reinstall everything!! Few weeks later all these repeated again.
I found new registry cleaner (Digeus Registry Cleaner) from http://www.digeus.com I like it, it does magic on Vista! My laptop works as new.

But there is another problem - I've noticed that the total size of files on hard drive before installing games and after uninstalling them is different. It became approximately 2GB more.

How can I delete all these files that I don't need any more?

Thanks.

Hi, more than likely that when you were uninstalling programs Vista was making system restore points. I would not remove any restore points yet but if you are happy with the way your PC is running after a couple of weeks then you should be safe to remove them.

hi pol,,, as monty say's vista will create restore points before an install and after an uninstall,,, vista allocates 15% of all hard drive space to system restore,,,, which is a bit much if you have a 500gb hdd,,, it will also create restore points for fun,,, as you have noticed,,,, you can change both these settings if you like,,,, ie,, how much hdd space is allocated to the shadow copy and when a restore point will be created,,, if you change the size of the shadow copy then do not go below 10gb as a rule off thumb,,, this is because if system gets an infection,,, the latest restore points get infected. and you have set the shadow copy to,,,, say 1gb,,, then as old restore points get deleted off the back all you are left with is infected restore points,,,, any how ,,,, here's some links to show you how to do it,,,,
