Hi guys,

 
Well the other day I reinstalled Linux Mint via Windows installer which is now un-installed by the way due to issues. What happened on the Linux Mint distro was a warning message coming up saying that my computer had limited memory. 
 
Additionally every now and then on my Windows 7 OS a message about how much CPU and Memory I currently have on my comp keeps coming up. 
 
I have performed a disk clean up and de-fragmentation but still got the message. I have since got WinDirStat thanks to Infinite mentioning that link in his Ultimate guide. I have also analysed my comp with that program but have no idea what to do at this point; I don't want to delete anything I shouldn't.
 
Furthermore an Ubuntu OS still keeps appearing on my hard drive even though un-installed and deleted from the boot menu. I will try again installing Ubuntu via the windows installer but now I just want to start all over fresh again; I do not want to have to do a complete re-installation again lol.
 
 

So if anyone could help me with this I'd be very grateful.

 

 

Thanks.

Hey, very sorry for the late reply. I ended up having more problems and ended up going to a repair shop and so have not been online lately. However I will bookmark this for future reference. Sorry and thanks again.
