Specs: Windows Vista, 1.73 ghz/1 g ram
My computer is running very slowly. I remember something about periodically clearing the cache/task manager, but I also remember that some of the files with an exe extension should not be deleted or cleared. Can anyone assist??

The system cache showing in Task Manager is not a collection of files. A large value here is a good thing, a very good thing. Whatever you heard about clearing the cache is nonsense. You may have heard about clearing the prefetch folder. That too is nonsense.

If you have only 1 GB RAM that could be the problem. That is the minimum for most editions of Vista.
