Running out of disk space? Been using your new computer for more than a month? It’s time to clean up!

In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to clean up your computer and help it run more efficiently. (This guide is written for Windows XP and Vista.)


We’ll need to download CCleaner.

Install CCleaner and open it up. Note: on the Install Options screen, I advise only selecting Add Start Menu Shortcuts (We’re trying to clean up your computer – not add more clutter)


Now you can Analyze and select Run Cleaner.


For more help, go to CCleaner.com and view the support guides.
