Alright so I have been liveing with this issue and no longer can take it. When I formated to Windows 98 to XP years ago I installed it onto its own 1.7 gig partition incase something went wrong and I could just format that small section and not lose any files on my other HDD and partition due to problems in the past with this happening. Well since the HDD's allocation that Windows XP is installed onto is only 1.7 Gigs that leaves about 40 megabyets of space for it to work with. When I try to install anything larger then 40 megs that needs to be temporaraly extracted it runs out of space and cancels the installation. Very bothersome. Is there any way to change the folder Windows XP stores files on temporarliy when it installs programs to another partition/HDD? It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could help.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
