1. Disk Cleanup- Windows has a built-in program to help remove unneeded files. When you go online, your computer stores copies of web pages you visit. Various other temporary pages are created when you're online (also, some when you're offline).
Over time these files accumulate and take up space on the hard drive that you may reclaim. This program finds them and other temporary files so you may delete them.
To use it, go to- Start-> All Programs->accessories->system tools->disk cleanup Click on 'disk cleanup' and follow the screens. It's a bit slow, so be patient. On the last screen, you may choose which actions to take.
2. Antivirus and Spyware- Viruses are mini-programs that can damage your computer and spread to other computers in your network. Spyware is software that is downloaded to your computer by sneaky people that may then use that software to spy on your activities.
There is a free download called 'windows defender' on the Microsoft website which handles anti-virus and anti-spyware chores. Just go to the site and search for 'windows defender.
