I think PCPitstop is a great service for keeping your computer in tip-top shape, but I recently encountered a problem with it. On my old Windows 98 laptop it seems to think that 90% of my drive is filled with "junk files". In fact, 90% of the drive is filled with normal files, while less than 10% is free space. I know I need to clean out the drive (but there's nothing to be cleaned out, I need everything), but why does PCPitstop think my data is "junk" that I should delete. The HD is only 6GB, and I am running "GoBack" on the computer. Could that be part of the problem? Thanks in advance for helping me! And if anyone has an idea of how to get more space out of the cramped drive, let me know.

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808

Please download and run a freeware program CleanUp, found just below my signature. This program clears up your temporary files, recent list, etc. This could help out clearing those junkies and unwanted files safely.
