cleanup prefetch & temp files

Monday, August 31, 2009
Cleanup "prefetch files" - some say it will create problems, some say it is safe to delete, some say it doesn't make any difference. my thought is you can safely delete prefetch files with no problems at all. below descriptions is about how to delete unnecessary files from system.

Delete prefetch files
  • Go to run (start>run)
  • Type prefetch and press enter (the exact path is C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch)
  • Now delete all files inside the prefetch folder
Delete windows temporary files
  • Go to run (start>run)
  • Type temp and press enter (the exact path is C:\WINDOWS\Temp)
  • Now delete all files inside the temp folder
Delete user temporary files
  • Go to run (start>run)
  • Type %temp% and press enter (the exact path is C:\Documents and Settings\(user name) \Local Settings\Temp
  • Now delete all file in the temp folder
Note - running above actions will no harm to your system

If you need all in one type software to perform all above actions, the only free software i know (the best) is Ccleaner. just download software, install it, after install select the actions to perform (it automatically selected most for you) then click analyse, if this gonna take time click cancel button and click run cleaner, this perform all above actions for you.
