Please advise if there is a program available to remove old files from computer. I notice when I watch a Spybot S & D operation that quite a few files appear, whetther these are search files I'm not sure. But a lot of these files appear to be connected with gambling and other such things that I never indulged in. Let us not forget this is a secondhand computer which I am using which I bought from someone else.

Regards and thanks for help in the past.

hi waynf!

But a lot of these files appear to be connected with gambling and other such things that I never indulged in.  Let us not forget this is a secondhand computer which I am using which I bought from someone else.

This 'files' that you say Spybot Search & Destroy found is considered malware. I suggest you check out THIS LINK and run all the self-help tests listed there for removal of unwanted files/programs associated with malware.

If you want a good clean-up program tyr Easy Cleaner from here: http://www.majorgeek...ownload414.html

It does a good job of clearing out old junk files.

Use REGISTRY and UNNECESSARY ONLY. ( I check the top 4 boxes in unnecessary )

Do not delete any DUPLICATE files as some of these are needed. :tazz:
