The general points in the article referenced by Kunal are valid - particularly the ones about being careful in the D:\ drive area - but since the article was written for Vista it may not quite work like that in Win 8.
An alternative might be to install 'CCleaner' from Piriform which you can download from BC. It is a very useful tool for getting rid of temporary files and old logs and so on. Just be warned - CCleaner includes a registry cleaner as one of its tools. you are strongly advised not to use this aspect of it, or indeed any other registry cleaner. YYou can get CCleaner here :-

thanks for the reply,
I will try this and the previous reply Monday.
As for ccleaner, i have been using it for years and always clean up the registry items (after doing a registry backup), and have never had a problem.
am i missing something? Please let me know.
