I am running XP home edition and am trying to free up space on my hard drive. I have a desktop file labeled... USMT2.UNC\IMG00001. I found another user who had a question regarding a file like this and gather from their question that this is a back up file of some sort.
I would like to safely delete it and free up the 1.02 GB of space it consumes at this time. I have since burned a cd and believe this to be an old back up of my documents folder. My apologies if this is, in fact, a very stupid question.
The second issue that I have has to do with the amount of CPU % is being used by processes that are running in the background of my system. Please forgive any lingo errors - I am using only the limited computer language I think I know. When I open the task manager I may only have my Final Draft (scriptwriting software), IE and Outlook running and it locks up at various times tilting to 100% CPU usage.
When I view the processes tab, it shows approximately 54 processes and I have no idea what these are. I think that these are initiated upon start up. Can anyone advise where I can determine which of these processes I can safely shut down to free up my CPU - or is there some far worse problem that I may need to contend with?
I appreciate your time and effort.
