Unplug it, open the case, blow the dust out of it with compressed air. Whatever you do, do NOT use a vacuum on electronic components!

If you need to clean out junk files, download, install & run CCleaner-Slim. Remove everything it finds: Click for CCleaner-Slim

Also download, install & run Defraggler: Click for Defraggler

You should be keeping copies of your personal files somewhere. You can use an external hard drive or DVDR disks. I suggest your first order of business is to back up. Then follow the suggestions above.

If it's making clicking noises, it could be the Hard drive failing. Backup your files to a usb drive first.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.
