The Steps to Keeping Your Computer Clean!! For Windows XP

These steps must be done in this sequence to be effective.

Step 1 - Cleaning Internet Files in Internet Explorer 9.0, 10.0 and 11.0

The following will delete Internet Temporary Files, History and Cookies from your computer. 

1.      Go to Internet Explorer

2.      Go to Tools > Internet Options

3.      Click Delete button

4.      Put a Check in all boxes and then click Delete

Note:  'Preserve Favorites website data'.  Internet Explorer 10.0 gives you an additional option in the Delete Browsing History window.   It is a personal preference to check this box or not.   However, it is recommended to not check this box every time you clear your browsing history.   It is always good to start fresh every now and then.

5.      Click OK to exit

Note:  A completion message bar will appear at the bottom of the browser.  It will go away on it's own or you can click the small X on the far right side of the bar.

Step 2 - Disk Clean Up

Your computer like your desk can get overrun with a lot of clutter that you cannot easily see or remove manually.  Occasionally you need to clean out your hard drive just as you would do with your desk.  It is a quick and easy process that will free up some valuable hard drive space.

1.       Go to Programs, then Accessories, then System tools, then finally click on Disk Cleanup

Note:  You might have to click the 2 downward facing arrows when you go to Programs to get to the sub-menus.

2.      Click Files from all users on this computer

3.      Click Continue at the security warning

4.      Verify main drive is selected and click OK

5.      Click Yes

Step 3 - Disk Defragmenter

For optimal performance, perform defragmentation 1 to 3 times in a row.

1.      Go to Programs, then Accessories, then System tools, and then finally click on Disk Defragmenter.  

Note:  You might have to click the 2 downward facing arrows when you go to Programs to get to the sub-menus.

2.      Verify the correct drive is highlighted and click Defragment
