Hello, after your guys' help deleting the bios password on my E527 laptop. I decided to do some spring cleaning (or fall cleaning I should say) on it, since I hadn't used it (both my win 7 and ubuntu os) since 2012. I noticed the winsxs fold was pretty large (7gb), so I was wondering if you guys could help me clean out my computer.
