Guest Posted June 7, 2006 Share Posted June 7, 2006 A question...and forgive me for my stupidity, and please could you answer in english , using analogies and metaphors of small forest animlas where necessary. for the last couple of months my computer has been chucking me out and crashing, saying it hasnt enough memory to start things etc. Now I checked on the control panel that all the temporary internet files are emptied, and it said there was nothing there. Its supposed to emty the temp files daily. Hence when disc clean up comes up, for some time there has been very little to delete. Usually it says there is 29 mb or 42 mb or something every day. So I went to "view files" and found thousands of items in every file going back as far as january. I delted all the first file by dragging down and selecting all and deleted 78 MB from the recycle bin. Now the computer is much faster , but I dont knbow if I seleted anything imporatnt. Mostly it looked like Java script stuff, hunfdreds of jpgs from things I have never even looked at like Liverpool football club jpgs and car ads. Then there were also things like "urchins" whatever they are and some other unsavoury looking stuff. Now I thought before this that zine alarm was the problem as often it is that that causes the crash. I reinstalled it a fortnight ago and the computer worked perfectly for a week and a half.....and it was deleting the ususal quota of crap from the Temp files. But then the last few days it has been deleting mnothing again. Waht I want to know is is it possible that I have a piece of spyware or something that stops itself and therefore everything else in the temp internet files being regularly emptied so it stays there? Or is there something else wrong here? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
