Cleaning Out Websites And Cookies

by vibeman / March 27, 2007 6:53 AM PDT

I have Windows 2000 PRO.
1.How can I clean out certain websites I have visited in the past and the cookies.
Only want to keep the ones selected and stored in "Favourites".
2. Have been advised that my system is slow due to the 256RAM and too many programs running in the background.Cannot upgrade to 512MB as the tower cannot accomodate.
I can stop certain programs if I knew their names or identification in Processes Running after doing the Ctrl-Alt-Delete thing.

Sorry but such is a sham.

You can find ready articles lamenting and panning the purveyors of memory defragmenting. I'd not use any product from them.
