Disk Cleanup

  Blessed 01:27 19 Mar 2007

I use Win98SE. When I run disk clean up it seems my computer is still runs slow. And it doesn't seem to clear hardly any memory. I notice I have a lot of what seem to be duplicate files in program files is there anyway I can clean up this folder or what else can I run to free up more space on my computer.

A lot of people use third party cleaners, rather than Windows disk cleanup. Personally I like BeClean, which is easy to use and will run on Win98se:

Unless you are very short of space I would not delete duplicate files, it is too easy to make a mistake.

Have you run Windows defragmenter lately, that can help.

And finally check what is running at startup, can you disable some items to give your system a boost. StartupRun is handy little tool, to show start up items:

If you run defragmenter it may take some time but it will get there.On one occasion I was defragmenting for 8 hours.
