Hi imageektoo,

 

If you are wanting to clean your tempfiles, please do the following:

 

Download TFC to your desktop

  • Close any open windows.
  • Double click the TFC icon to run the program
  • TFC will close all open programs itself in order to run,
  • Click the Start button to begin the process.
  • Allow TFC to run uninterrupted.
  • The program should not take long to finish it's job
  • Once its finished it should automatically reboot your machine,
  • if it doesn't, manually reboot to ensure a complete clean

Along with this you can use a program like JetClean, CCleaner, or Glary Utilities and it'll clean your temp files along with other junk related files.

Jetclean CCleaner and Glary Utilities are all bundled with a "registry cleaner".  TFC only cleans temp files, and does nothing else. Registry cleaners are *never* good to use on a computer.  If you use any of those 3 utilities, please do NOT use the registry cleaning or optimizing features.
