My wife has been getting more and more frustrated with her laptop over the past couple of weeks. Yesterday things came to a head when she couldn't open any link within an email that contained photographs. I was pretty sure the problem was excessive Temp Files from all her FB viewing (she seldom posts).
Sure enough. Over 24,000 Temp Files in her Browser, using over 6 GB of storage space!
I spent more than 4 hours last night monitoring her machine as I cleared all her Temp Files, De-Fragged her hard drive, performed Virus & Malware Scans, down-loaded and installed four year's worth of Software Updates, etc.
I learned my lesson too. I better do this on 6-month intervals in the future! Thank goodness it was a drizzly rainy night that prevented any outside or automotive activities.
