Hi: My disk space is running low, and I ran across something called Wiper Wizard. I ran the program and it says that I have 541 junk files. They all say the reason is "invalid file type." It is $20.00 to purchase this program to erase them. Does anyone know anything about this, and if it would be worth it, or is there something free I could try? I do not know very much about computers, but I do regularly delete the cookies and temporary internet files, and have good virus protection. I have not been able to run the disk defrag lately as it says I do not have enough disk space. I have went through and erased any unneeded programs already. I paid $100.00 to add disk space already to my computer last year, and do not want to do that again. The main thing is all of the software that I had to install for school. It is taking up lots of space. Any suggestions?
Thanks much - Dawn
