TUNE UP YOUR COMPUTER -PART III

Modify System Restore data

Windows XP provides the option to restore your PC to a previous state by automatically saving restore information. System Restore continuously monitors your PC for changes, such as file changes, application changes, or installations. System Restore takes a "snapshot" of your PC at a given point in time and then stores each of these snapshots so that you can roll back any changes to a period before you experienced problems.

As you can imagine, these snapshots of your whole system take up memory space. You can delete older snapshots that you're sure you won't need in order to clean up your hard disk.

To delete System Restore snapshots except for the most recent one:

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup.

2. Wait while Disk Cleanup calculates free disk space.

3. Click the More Options tab, and then, in the System Restore area, click Clean up….

Note: You must be logged in as an administrator in order to complete these steps.


Please let me know if you see the difference in your performance after you do these steps, I would love to hear from ya!
If you have any questions I always arounder here somewhere!
One more thing I forgot to tell you..............................*SMILE*
Thanx, Mitchy

Thanks for the computer tips Mitchy

Been running the free 90 day trial of Windows 7 enterprise for a couple weeks now and I'm impressed with it

I don't mean to be harsh. But I can count on two hands
the hours I've spent on Windows. I just don't get it.

I've never owned anything but a Mac. When I was working
on my masters we had to write dos commands to analyze
our data. That put me off Windows permanently. Bought a
Mac SE in 1989 and have never looked back.

Looked at part II of this maintenance chat. Are there really
programs you can delete without losing functionality?

(I mean delete without knowing exactly what they are. I
have deleted a few basic Mac programs that I never use,
but they're self contained things like Chat.)

MAC was a pretty good tennis player, but he could sure give the line judges a hard time!

Thanks, Mitchy! I do the disk cleanup pretty regular, but had never done the option thing with the clean up of System Restore.
