    I need to free up space on my computer and I have already did a disk clean up and it tells me after the clean up how much I will gain, but once it is done it has not given me that space. How do I free more space and gain memory? Thanks!!:)

    Maybe you can try and compress some data you don't use so often using Winzip / WinRAR or alternatively transfer it to a DVD/CD?

    I do not currently have either the zip or rar, which one do you recommend? I looked them up and there are several sites, what is the average cost to download these programs or can you tell me which site to go with?

    I would go with iZarc which will compress .zip .rar and just about anything else you want to at www.izarc.org. Oh Yeah and It's Free!!
