I downloaded Firefox, Avast, Mallwarebyte's AntiMalware it has no viruses or malware but before I went any further I got a Clickfree Auto backup 250gb - actual 232.7gb.
I used Clickfree on mine and my Mom's computer it took about 5 minutes for my computer and about 2 hours for Mom's. During the backup of my Mom's computer I got a message saying there was not enough resources to continue application.
When I checked the device this is what I found
For reference my Computer that I have had since 2005 has 385 files using 1,142.2mb
Mom's Computer that she got in 2002 has 54,297 files using 18,103.0mb the break down of files is
All Other 37,090 files 10,102.2mb
Artwork and Drawings 10,055 files 199.4mb
Music 1,810 files 5,986.4mb
Photos 2,904 files 948.2mb
Text Documents 2,023 files 36.5mb
Videos 176 files 783.4mb
E-mail 40 files 1.5mb
Spreadsheets 38 files 1.6mb
Presentations 13 files 7.7mb
I pretty much know what to do with everything except some Text Documents and All Other.
All Other contains files like .exe, .dll, .cab, .dat
The text documents have files from 1999
I guess I could grind it out and delete the files I don't need one by one but I would like to know if there are some programs that could do this for me.
While using the computer it will take a long time for applications to load when I check the task manager the CPU Usage is up to 100% and the computer freezes.
