:thumbsup: Just wondering about a few things. Very slow computer here and looking for ways to improve performance. Computer is old(about 10 years), so there may not be much I can do about it. Every week I get a picture from weatherunderground.com(good website) and set it as my background picture. Is this saved somewhere? If so, like I said, I change it every week so I have plenty of pics in this file......if it exists.

Another question involves the file located under "C" Drive....... I386......What is this and can its contents be deleted? I would appreciate any feedback.

Before anyone can help you, we'll need your system specs. If your system is that old, there's probably not much you can do. Any pics that you've downloaded should be in My Pictures. I have over 500 wallpapers that I manage with Wallpaper Master.

whatever you do, dont delete the I386 folder or any of its contents as this is important to the operation of Microsoft Windows.

Also Like frankp316 said, please give us your computer model ex: manufacturer, model, and such.
