Hi. I am new to this forum, but not new to computing. Just a little on the novice side when it comes to knowing some software. I need to clean up my machine a bit, runs a bit slow at times and thought since my uncle passed away and left behind some software I had heard about in his office, I would give it a try.
It appears as though I have System Mechanic version 5. I ran the junk file scan and it came up with 456 files in need of probable deletion. Here is the list of the ones I am not sure about deleting as they don't show up in the list of examples in the help section. I could use some sage advice in knowing what is safe to delete and what is not. Thanks.
* Security Catalog
* Application Extension
* BOOT (setup.boot)
* windows metafile
Most of these files were found in the scan to be in the "temp" folder on my system. Many of them have zero length. I run WIN XP Home edition. Hope someone can advise me. I don't want to delete integral pieces of information. I have a recent backup of my files, but don't want to have to use them if at all possible.
I appreciate any help you can offer. I get skiddish when it comes down to pushing the delete button!
