how do u know which folders are a waste of the old updates and could be deleted immediately? I have used WinDirStat and view them but i have no idea what i have to clean up..i see a lot of .log file (text document) in my C: , and to break it up, it's in my windows> tracing > <Files> [7.8G] . whereas windows>winsxs [9.3G] but its all spread evenly with avg of 100MB-200MB per file. and system32 3.5G.
I donít know whatís on your system or how itís set up, so I canít really say exactly whatís deletable, but temp directories and caches are always a good candidate since they are by definition temporary and tend to fill up quite a bit. If you havenít already, clear your browser cache (exactly how depends on which browser you use). There are plenty of programs that can clean out things like the temp files, caches, recycle bins, etc. You can try the Disk Cleanup Wizard that comes with Windows (Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Cleanup). That can help you get rid of most of the common files that waste space.
You didnít mention what OS it is. Are you using XP? Do you use a wireless connection? What is the date of the most recent file in C:\Windows\Tracing?
It looks like your system is set up to trace and provide logs of your wireless connection. Is there a reason you would need logs (eg have you had trouble with your connection)? If not then it would be best to just disable tracing and delete the logs. You can check what tracing is enabled by opening a command prompt (Run->Cmd.exe) and running the command netsh ras show tracing
. It will list what networking components are installed, and what their tracing status is. You can disable tracing by using the command netsh ras set tracing * disabled
(of course you can re-enable them by using enabled
instead of disabled
; although you will probably want to enable tracing of only the components that you need to, if any
WinSxS is where different version of files get stored to ensure compatibility. On my system it is currently 33MB (I had it down to ~9MB but had to put some files back for a program). Generally you just leave that alone. When you install a program, it will put what it needs in there if itís not already present, and should remove them when you uninstall if no other programs need it. I have to admit though that 3.5GB is pretty big. Do you have a lot of programs installed? Do you ever uninstall old ones you donít use anymore?
Temp1 is my ACPI, and at heavy usage times, those temperature could go as high as 90deg ++.
The last I read, the newer CPUs with multiple cores that use those smaller processes should be using less power and running cooler. Again, I donít have a lot of experience with multi-core CPUs so somebody who has one may want to weigh in on this, but in my experience, 90į is quite hot. If I remember correctly, CPUs were rated for up to about ~70į before they start having problems. You may want to consider cleaning out any dust and put the case out in the open if itís in a desk cabinet or something where there is no airflow through it.
on the keylogger issue, i think it still happened after i quit the game although im not too sure. but on the good side, the threats are gone after i restart my computer and play the same game again.
Great. Have you updated your anti-virus definitions since the last time it happened? If so, what probably happened was that the anti-virus update removed that game as a false positive.
