    Sorry I did not see this thread earlier.
    Ummm, that's not true. CCleaner does not do that at all. It deletes temporary files. Its Registry cleaner can clean out orphaned entries left over from uninstalls, but those are entries in the database, not files - and they don't really hurt anything anyway.

    You should go through Control Panel Add and Remove programs and uninstall any programs you no longer use. If you don't know what something is, leave it. Plug it into Google and see if you need it. Note that orphaned files don't do anything but take up disk space.

    For files and folders on your drive, don't delete them unless you are 100% sure you know what it does, and that you don't need it. If unsure, rename it. I append the date at the end. This tells me when I "tagged" it so next time I see it, I can tell how long it has been. And if I discover I still need it, all I need to do is rename it back by removing the date - I don't have to guess or remember what the original name was.

    A slow computer is typically a sign of malware, or too much stuff running taking up your resources (CPU cycles, RAM, and free disk space). For sure, scan for malware. If still slow, read this then start a new topic here.
