This process will clean out your Temp files and your Temporary Internet Files. Please do both steps:

Step 1:Delete Temp Files
To clean out your temp files, click on Start and then run, and type %temp% and press the ok button.

This should open up the temp directory that your machine uses. Please delete all files that are found there. If you get an error when deleting a file, skip that file and delete all the others. If you had trouble deleting a file, reboot into Safe Mode and follow this step again. You should now be able to delete all the files.

Step 2: Delete Temporary Internet Files
Now I want you to open up Internet Explorer, and click on the Tools menu and then Internet Options. At the General tab, which should be the first tab you are currently on, click on the Delete Files button and put a checkmark in Delete offline content. Then press the OK button. This may take quite a while, so do not be alarmed with how long it takes. When it is done, your Temporary Internet Files will now be deleted.

See if that helps

You also may want to run a few scans to make sure there is no spyware / virus downloading stuff into your computer without you knowing about it;

Virus scanners

Housecall Trendmicro Scan
Panda ActiveScan

Malware scanners
Spybot:S&D Download
Ad-Aware SE Download

Good luck :thumbsup:

Hi lynne33

A good program to remove unneccessary files on your hard drive is CCleaner. Download that and run it. You may be surprised what it finds.

When you open that program you will see three tabs. Do not attempt to do any cleaning with the Issues tab as it removes Registry entries and you must be very sure of what you are doing with that. In any event, very little space will be saved by cleaning items shown under the Issues tab.
