Re: WHAT PROGRAMS CAN I UNINSTALL FOR MORE MEMORY ON MY PC

Here is a list of things to try:

  1. Download cookienator (it's a freebie) and clean house.
  2. Open my Computer and right mouse click on the hard drive --> properties --> Disk cleanup
  3. Start Internet Exployer --> Tools--> Internet Option --> delete browsing history
  4. Open my Computer and right mouse click on the hard drive --> properties --> Tools --> Defrag now
  5. Open my Computer and right mouse click on the hard drive --> properties --> Tools --> Check now
  6. Open the RUN Window and enter the following commands:

          cmd

          sfc/scannow --------> this will verify your critical system files and attempt repairs

          exit

 

7. Open the RUN Window and enter the following command: chkdsk

8. Reboot and see how things go.
