Thread: How Do I Get Rid Of This Junk ?

  1. #1
    Ever time I do a Disk Cleanup on my C Drive in win XP Pro. I cant get rid of


    928 KB of Web Client/Publisher Tenporary Files and
    2,253 KB of Compress old files

    All of the others I can clean but not those files. I have tried using the tools in internet options, Also used window washer 5.0. I have done searches in google and other search engines.

    Any ideas would be helpfull..

    Thanks

    this is the amount of space you'd gain by compressing existing files on your hard drive, the only way you can 'gain' this space is to actually compress the files...running window washer won't get you it back...

    at the end of the day the total of those two elements is only about 3MB, are you really that hard up for space?
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Disk Cleanup only manages to find like 1% of what could be cleaned

    928 KB of Web Client/Publisher Tenporary Files
    Do you have IExplorer, or other Web based progs running when you do this?
    Try manually deleting.


    2,253 KB of Compress old files
    You can save alot more space by, manually going thru old files and compressing them - by right cliking folder or item-properties-advanced-compress

    Avoid compressing programs you use often- as it tends to slow them down loading.

    Space is not a problem .. Im just a clean freak when it comes to a pc. I dont want a lot of junk on here that just slows things down, Its only a 1.7 gig p4.

    The first time I ever cleaned my cookies on my a pc I saved over 60,000 files when I did a virus scan...
