Got To Clean Up a Vista

Post by Darkwing on 2010-07-16, 19:14

Ok, so it's about high time I cleaned up my Vista to make it run smoother. So using free software and whatnot, how do I clean it up, you know registry stuff and all that. What are some things I should do to make it perform better?

You could do a complete memory wipe to speed it up.
Just make sure you back up any important files and make sure you have the vista OS disk.

But if i were to clean up my computer i'd do it manually.

no no, no memory wipes, did that last year, on't wanna do it again. I'm not talking like files and things to maximize HDD space, I'm talking about cleaning it up to run smoother

OK, first thing, install and run CCleaner.

Go to start -> All Programs -> Accessories (or anithing similar, I'm translating this from Portuguese) -> Sistem tools -> Disk CleanUp

It will clean your HDD from useless files like .tmp and stuff like that...

Either that or use CCleaner Very Happy

control panel > uninstall programs > (on left task pane) turn windows features on or off

Quite a lot of these you can uncheck, depending on your needs.
