    Hi Guys

    I have compiled a guide on my website entitled Why Is My Computer Running Slow?

    Have a look and let me of any corrections / amendments / suggestions etc.

    Hi there

    What exactly are you referring to?

    Right clicking?

    That's just a Joomla extension to stop people copying and pasting my work.

    No biggie unless you see it differently

    Regards

    That and Ctrl+C. I don't think it's effective though.

    Anyhow the guide looks pretty comprehensive. Good job.

    DIRMS and Buzzsaw? A blast from the past. Are they that good relative to Mydefrag, Puran, Auslogics?

    Seems an unusual choice for defrag.

    Hi There

    Guide was written a long time ago.

    I use MyDefrag now so no idea how they all compare.

    Will amend guide to suit.

    Regards

    I've used CCleaner and Privacy Guardian to regulary delete tmp files...now I have to checked it manually to make sure its really clean. ;)

    Now using the Defragmenter of TuneUp Utilities 2011, it's really effective. :cool:

    Hi there

    I don't recommend CCleaner to people due to the registry cleaner element it contains - I feel registry cleaners are useless and do more harm than good. So I feel its better to take that tempting option away from people.

    But that's IMO of course.

    Regards
