    I was going to try AVG antivirus but it is free for only 30 days after which there is a cost. My year long Kasper has just finished and for a change ,i would like a free virus. Can recommendations ?

    As well as running anti spyware progs, defrag the hdd and so on I also have a little script that deletes temp files on shutdown.
    here it is below

    RD /S /q "C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\History"
    RD /S /q "C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\History"
    RD /S /q "C:\Temp\"
    RD /S /q "C:\windows\Temp\"
    RD /S /q "C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Temp\"
    del "c:\windows\prefetch\*.*" /q

    Another great utility I user and have freed up alot of space is winstatdir.
    It give a graphical representation of files and the amount of space they take.
    Be prepared to be shocked.

    This is a very old thread.

    Anyone like to summarise it and update it?
