When was the last time you cleaned out all the TIF files or did a full defrag?

What size is your HD and how much free space is on it?

Also how much memory do you have?

TIF = Temporary Internet Files
C:\windows\Temporary Internet Files

How to Delete in DOS and be done with it. Quick. Efficient

Start > Shutdown and Restart in MS_DOS mode

Once in DOS type in the following commands exactly:

SMARTDRV.EXE

CD \WINDOWS
DELTREE /Y COOKIES
DELTREE /Y HISTORY
DELTREE /Y RECENT
DELTREE /Y TEMP
DELTREE /Y TEMPOR~1


ctrl-alt-delete to reboot to windows

Fear not, all of these folders will be recreated when you reboot windows.

Now that you have gotten rid of that "land fill" called Temporary Internet Files, you may want to reboot into Safe Mode and run defrag.

If you have never deleted Temporary Internet Files in the past, my guess is that you can recover 50 - 500 meg of HD space. Maybe more if you have never done it since day one.

The most space I have ever recovered from someone's PC was a whopping 1.3 gig.

Oh, by the way, boot time is slightly improved and you will notice a marked reduction in time to run a virus scan and defrag.


Next power down and then as you start up hold down the crtl key (depending on manufacture some use the F8 key. If ctrl doesn't work, try again using the F8 key) Which ever way is successful you should now have a black screen with a menu of 5 or 6 choices. Select Safe Mode.

Once in Safe Mode, click on Start > Run and type in scandisk
This will take some time depending on the size of your HD and the speed of your PC in general.

Also while in Safe Mode, click on Start > Run and type in defrag. Defragging in Safe Mode is faster because defrag isn't interrupted by the windows background disk and "house keeping" calls.

Good Luck. Let us know how it works for you.

BTW, it would be interesting to not how much free HD space you have both before and after the above procedure. :D

Yep!! The key word here is TEMPORARY as in, not needed.
Altho you can probably get 90% of it out by deleting from Windows Explorer, IF you use the above procedure in DOS it gets rid of all of it including all the hidden files.

Clean the landfill, why chock your PC?
Don't forget, those 5,000 to 100,000 files (depending on how long it's been) also take time when you run your virus scan and defrag tools. Why defrag and disinfect garbage?

oh by the way it's a p3 450mhz
i had 4.9 gigs used before deleting
i now have 4.25 gigs used out of 10

did a scan disk and defrag no errors and the problem is still there
it only does it in internet explorer now it "stalls" out it seems then when it finally comes back it's fast, high speed
