[SIZE=1] my computer was given to me second hand and i'm sure there are files and programs that i don't have any use for that i can get rid of. Trouble is i have gotten rid of alot of stuff and should have plenty of disk space. It seems like the more i deleted and uninstalled the less space i ended up with.

I uninstalled Wild Tangent and ever since I get the message: RUNDLL Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\WILDTA~1\APPS\CDA\CDAENG~1.DLL every time I boot.

I have Norton System Works and when I go to CleanSweep there are tons of duplicate files and dll's and other files that i can hopefully get rid of but i have no clue which ones. <_< I am in desperate need of assistence with these problems. I'm on the verge of using my puter for target practice!!!!!

If it's a second hand computer, my recomendation would be to remove everything and start over. Did you get a manufacturer's restore disk? Or, do you have copies of all the programs currently on the system so you can reinstall them?

No i don't have the manufacturer's restore disk and i don't have copies of all the programs that are on the system. Guess i should copy everything and start over. Thank you for your help.

well if its an older machine with win98 or 2000- you can back up the data you only want and then do a clean install of the computer with windows xp and then put your data back on...i did this to one of the computers i recieved from a friend that use to be used as a computer company
