 Please clean temp files from pc:
 Temp files can build up over time and eat into your precious disk space.
 When you install programmes the installer uses temporary files as part of the set up process.
 Some programmes also use temp files when in use.
 These temp files should be removed when the installer or programme is finished but this does not always happen.
 And of course your browser will collect temp files as well.
 A build up of temp files could leave Windows struggling to find room for its swap file .
 There are two easy ways to clean out temp files.
 First one is Manually and another is By using a proprietary cleaning programme.
 Manually for xp and vista
 Firstly exit all programmes including browsers and AVs
 Click on Start Menu >> Run & type %Temp% & Click Ok
 If you want to delete everything press Ctrl+A & then press the delete key
 If you want to keep any files then hold down the Ctrl key and left click the file or folder.
 Then press the delete key.
 Click OK to confirm deletion.
 Once done remember to go to your Recycle Bin and empty the bin.
 By using a proprietary programmer.
 Click On Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Disk Cleanup.
