Windows 7 TIPS


General File Cleanup
These are the following common locations I where like to delete unnecessary files. This can speed up the operating system and help reduce the time it takes to run virus scans as well as defrag the computer.
The TEMP directory
  1. An easy way to get there is to click on Start the type in %temp%
  2. Press Ctrl-A to highlight everything in the right hand panel and press Shift-Delete.
  3. This deletes them permanently and doesn't send them to the Recycle Bin
The Software Distribution / Download Directory
  1. This contains the files that are downloaded when you update the Microsoft files. Once they are updated, you don't need the files any longer.
  2. Start the Windows Explorer
  3. Go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
  4. Press Ctrl-A to highlight everything in the right hand panel and press Shift-Delete.
