That may be OK for now but you will still need to seriously consider getting a supplementary hard drive, as what you have will soon fill up again

That was not a registry tool it was a repair tool, just to confirm that all was as it should be.

Are there any further problems

At the moment, no, but why did this all start?

I had many many pics, etc on the machine for ages. Suddenly it ran slow + all the other stuff.

I should not use CCleaner to delve in the registry?
I have several registry backups that I saved from that program... any use?

Could you expand the product information so that I can see what is generating the problem

but why did this all start

Basically due to the size of the hard drive, it is just not big enough. As windows gets updated it grows, your temporary folders get full, you add new programmes. You will continue to get these problems with a small drive

OK but how do I expand the product information?

BTW, my machine is about 5 years old-- how many GBs do the new machines offer?

Thnaks, m

Select the following Items :

Repair WMI
Remove temp files
Repair MSI


New systems will generally offer as a minimum 500Gb

This is weird. An hour ago I had 84.4 GB free. Now it is going down again, currently at 83.8. And I just did a Diskchek, plus am defragging again.

Yet I removed many many pictures, files, and folders. Why would it be filling up again?
