So, all my music and photos are on an external hard drive. Why is it full. The computer it about 8 years old and was top chit at the time. A mate of mine who owned his own computer business builtit for me. It cost me 8 grand.

Do I get a computer savvy over (skegbudly;)) or crush it to dust and get a new desktop???

You paid $8000 for a PC????? Even eight years ago.

Do you use CCleaner?

New PCs are dirt cheap, don't waste your time getting one made. My Dell XPS cost bugger all a few years ago and was cheaper than a beige box from the local Vietnamese computer shop (monitor, keyboard and all), and hard drives cost stuff all nowadays.

Cheers

Is jewbag racist? Lol.

My computer had all the good chit. Graphics drivers, gaming stuff, top of the range screen. But that's all garbage by today's standards! Lol.

I think they are just as savvy and just as prepared to take you for a ride if you don't know any better. All that you can guarantee is that they will be cheaper than Hardly Normal etc.

CCleaner is junk
Why?

Never once seen it do what it claims to be able to do. It works but no substitute for a clean install.
I use it all the time and it most certainly does exactly what it's designed to do. It's not a panacea for all problems, but if you want all the cookies, temp files and other crap that builds up in your PC, to be completely purged, then it works fine. I especially like how it can clean the registry after removing applications that turns out to be crap and leave crumbs even after an install. Who wants to always to a system restore?

The same programmer also provides a very good defrag program.

Cheers

Agree CC works a treat, especially when the computer gets slow, but no substitute for the delete button.

Just get a new HD and do a fresh install of win7/64 problems solved, h2tb hd is cheap as chips now as is ram, build an 8gb ram box and go for it.
