The D: drive is typically, but not always, used as the recovery partition. If that is the case the contents should not be deleted or modified in any way. The partition is used exclusively for recovering the system to it's initial state. Your policy should be a strict hands off.

Follow advice above.
If you need additional space and it is a desktop just add another hard drive ($40.-$60. US) and if it is a laptop then get a portable hard drive for a little bit more and off load what you no longer need access to immediately.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If it was fast when you bought it then there may be some problems. You may have malware. It may be that you should try to scan and remove or just reload back to OEM state. A good security suite is a must.


You need to review how your system can be returned to OEM state. It may be that you need both those files and a cd/dvd that you have to make. You may have to make them before it crashes.

Personally, I'd keep the files there and not touch them. I'd also make a complete backup using the built in backup program to some usb or network storage in case your drive fails.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

can speed it up.
You can start by removing startup items that don't have to run at startuop.

Also, if your laptop will take more ram, I would suggest you upgrade that, that will also speed it up.
