Hi all.....my first post. Likely not my last. I'm not very computer savvy, so bear with me. I'm trying to delete some unwanted junk that is in my system32 folder. I think most of this is bad, but I know some of the files are critical to running things right. How can I tell the difference? Date created? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I reccomend dont messing with your system 32, whatever junk in your system 32 folder is probably really small andcan be ignored.

[B]do not touch or delete anything from that file that is needed by windows to make it run
Now installed Microsoft Security Essencials on my Tower with Windows Home Premium 32bit and Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop with Windows Home Premium 64bit

if you want to get rid of junk use this cleaner

Clean Up

And even if you did delete anything out of your system32 folder it would reapear before you can say Windows...
