TIA

If you take yourself over to Download.com,you'll find a number of excellant drive cleaners.I use and would recommend either Eraser or SureDelete.
Both use the top knotch non-recoverable scrubbers that are in effect with the military.
Do a Defragment and Disk Cleanup and then the Disk Cleaner.These programs can take several hours as it takes more than one pass to do the job properly,so set it to do the job overnight.
If this helps-----SS

Download a program called X Cleaner. It will find spies and other nasties. You will have to manually remove the nasties as X Cleaner finds them. Follow this program with EZ Cleaner by Toni Arts. This is a safe and depenable freeware program. When running the various programs in EZ, do not run the dupllicate files remover unless you know precisly what you are doing. Run the, Unneccesary Files, Clear cookies, and lastly the Registry Cleaner. Also click on the Start Up, to see what is starting when you boot your computer. You might want to remove anything that isn't part of Windows or other systems.
If you are in need of a good Internet tracks remover Download Absolute Shield. Next go into Windows and run the Disk Cleaner. Follow by running Windows defragmenting program. If you have never defragged your system, get ready because it could take several hours. DO NOT try to use your computer while it is defragmenting. The end result will be a faster and more effeciant machine.

Try CleanUp! from: http://www.stevengould.org/software/cleanup/

using the default setting does a pretty good job. Tweak it under its setting for aggressive attention, just beware it can clean very well, so know what you're about to do.

congrats '05 -----Willy :
