|Rich185 Thanks for the info. To try to resolve this problem from happening to begin with, I ALSO have on my Windows ME a program called "Acronis True Image" this is a program that will completely duplicate your hard drive, onto another disk in case I do something like this. The problem is I don't know how to work it. When I was just trying things, before I clicked the yes button (I'VE LEARNED, BELIEVE ME,)the program told me that I shouldn't move a copy of hard drive C (Windows ME), to hard drive D (Windows XP - the only other place it determined I could copy the hard drive to) because it will cause my computer to have problems. THIS I know not to do anyway, but it didn't tell me what to do as far as where to put it....SO...my question is do I have to buy some disks that will be large enough to hold my whole 20G hard drive info? I've never used the program, it's just sitting here on my computer. These are some of the things that I have on here that I didn't want to delete, so that why I really didn't want to run Windows ME Recovery disks. I've had to run them in the past a few times, when I've really screwed up, so I try to only do a few things, but now I'm trying to delete things to try to get my compute to set restore dates. It won't no matter what I do, and it says that I need to delete some stuff to clear up space. Even running defragement doesn't clear enough space...hence, the reason why I ran Spring Cleaning to begin with. Maybe it's time to do what you suggested and clear the cookies and things.|
Sorry to get off on a tanget. Some of the things that Spring Cleaning does is:
Fix Registry: Fix errors in the Windows registry.
Clean Registry: Remove unnecessary registry enries.
Edit Registry: Find and edit registry settings.
I used the fix registry option, because I though it would help Windows figure out how I can gain space, or combine some info to gain space.
Also, I have Registry Mechanic. This program works, but it removes my task bar icons for a few hours, and then replaces them with others, (that still do the same thing) but I couldn't stand the change, and it doesn't play nice with my NOD32 or my AdsGone program, because it has something in it that does the same thing, and it wants to use its own, so when I sent the problem to the company, again they told me to send them a snapshot of what my computer was doing, but I didn't know how to do it, so I just removed the program from my computer, and have been trying to fix the problems that occur my self. Do you know of a defragment system that I could try to try to get more space so my system restore can make restore points?
