How to remove old system files

  mp47 10:35 08 Apr 2017

When I built my current pc four years ago, the virus scan counted about 200,000 files, now it's five or six million files. I know it's not the files I have saved, so the vast bulk must be system files. Is there a method or software that can clear a chunk of these files and hopefully speed up the running of the machine?

Have you tried clearing the .tmp files?
