[quote=superman63086;2131339]You are going to have to be specific as far as specs, its got an intel celeron M processor, ATi graphics card, 80 gig HD and a multi function dvd burner, plus 512 RAM.
And as far as clean ups go I have never done one. I actually thought that they moved stuff around and made things not work properly. But then again I am not extremely knowlegable. I know just enough to get into trouble.
Thanks for the help.[/quote]
First do the following
click on the start button on the taskbar go to All Programs–>Accessories–>System Tools, you will see Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter.
run both programs starting with the Disk Cleanup (Delete all that it finds)…then run the Disk Defragmenter (Note…since you have never done a defrag before it may take a few hours to complete)
another thing 80 gigs may sound like a lot of space BUT after you have installed many programs and save this file that file or what ever the free space drops fast and when saving movies it drops even faster.
you need at least 10% of hard drive space at all time for the system to operate the way it needs to, if you drop below that at any time you will getting system errors or system crashing or even both.
It is also a good idea to run a registry cleaner at least once a monthdue to Spyware and uninvited clutter in your Windows Registry
and like bean said 512mb of Ram is not much since the operating system uses some of that for cache so may think about installing more if your motherboard permites
