    OK I am so DUMB when it comes to computers I just learned to cut and paste from my son I know dont laugh to hard but when you say go to start where are you talking about? Sorry for the question.I know it is a dumb one but like I always told my boys how will you learn if you dont ask
    Okay. Start is in the lower lefthand corner. When you click on 'start' and the listing pops up, there will be a place that says 'run' - click on that and a window will pop up. Then in the window, type the word 'prefetch' and then click on 'okay'. Then a new window will pop up and then click on the word 'edit' A page will come on showing a whole bunch of stuff. Click on 'select all' and next, click on the word 'delete'. Everything will vanish and you will just go on about your regular business.


    I am totally tech-challanged what does this delete, everything or just garbage?
    No, it only deletes the garbage - it does not affect anything else.

    Okay - go to the very top and you'll see the word 'edit'. Click on that and then the words "select all" will pop up. Click that, and then another list will popup... go to the words 'delete file' and you're done.

    Once you have completed this process, you may want to do this quite often, couple times a week at least. But, you won't have to type 'prefetch' anymore because it will remain in the window.
