You need to use a defragging program.
If you don't have a utility program with
this windows has its own and while its
slow it gets the job done. You will find
it in:
start/programs/accessories/system tools/disk de-
fragmenter
I personally like to use the program ERASER
which is a free program used to overwrite the
free space on the harddisk after defragging.

By the way, is it possible to delete files at start up or by ending task on certain programs. The reason I ask is my brother once ended task on explorer, and we had to restore it in DOS.

Hiya

Just EndTasking programs such as Explorer dosen't delete them. All it would have done, as you did this on Explorer, is shut Windows down. You can just restart your PC again.

However, for cleaning your PC, have a read of this:
