    A free program called Eraser v. 5.6 effectively deletes left over files.

    As to helping Windows better organize your files open a folder; click the View menu; Arrange icons; Point to Auto Arrange; Click the View menu; Point to By Name.

    Is this Eraser 5.6 a freeware? Is it available anywhere for downloading?

    You can manually trim down and reorganize your Start menu, desktop, and file system so things don't look so messy and disorganized. It's just a matter of knowing how to do it and then getting it done. That's one of the most common and frustrating problems that I find when working on someone else's computer for the first time.:(

    Easiest way to organise Start Menu is to right click on it and then selecting Explore. It is easy to make new folders, sub-folders and use cut-copy-paste to trim down the number of items.

    For example, in my machines, everything that needs internet or modem is kept in a folder named Via Modem. NAV, AVG, etc. are under a folder called Security Tools.
