My overall goal is to remove as much junk from my hard drive as possible as I am getting a new machine in May but this one, in the interim, is a bit unstable...14.2G HD with 1.7 free. It is a 667 with 128 RAM and Windows ME. I delete all cookies and internet temp files every day and have uninstalled several programs I do not use. I just did Defrag. I had Norton anti virus but removed it with uninstall. I now have McAffee. My skill level is 2 on a 1-10 scale...10 being high
1. If I go to msconfig> VxD the following Symantec VxD are still listed and enabled: SYMTDI, SYMEVNT and SAVRT. Not sure if the last one is Norton or not. Should I uncheck the first two (three?) and if so, will that help any with my overloaded computer?
2. If I go into Disk Cleanup I find five or six folders/items that are clearly marked Norton. Some are only a couple of bytes and some are not size specififed. Can/Should I delete these?
3. I did a search of this wonderful site and found a similar situation....user had McAfee and deleted it but some files remained. One suggestion was to go into registry and delete files there. This is probably out of my comfort level so don't think I will attempt that....too scary!
