What Is Safe To Delete During Disk Cleanup

Apr 4, 2012

So I want to perform a disk clean up on my laptop, except I have no idea which items in the list are safe to delete and which are not. I've looked through Google and a lot of sites say it's safe to just delete everything, but I want to make sure.

The following:

Downloaded Program Files - 0 bytes
Temporary Internet Files - 0 bytes
Game Statistics Files - 3.71 KB
Recycling Bin - 0 bytes
Service Pack Backup Files - 920 MB
System error memory dump files - 5.00 MB

Windows 7 Won't Boot After Disk Cleanup In Sleep Mode

Sep 23, 2011

My netbook was working normally but I was running low on space so I decided to run a disk cleanup. I opted to compress the files as well. Then I put the netbook to sleep.

Trying to restart this morning, the "Toshiba" screen came up (with access to the boot menu) and immediately after a black screen with the following message appears:

YKNRE is compressed
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

When I follow the instructions, the same cycle repeats. This is a nebook without a CD drive. I am traveling in Iran and am stuck.

After Disk Cleanup , Can't Use My Audio System In Safe Mode?

Apr 13, 2011

I ran the disk cleanup and it freed up several GB of space on my C drive (I have a Dell laptop with a C drive with about 62 GB of space and a D drive with 426 GB.I let it run overnight because it said it was going to take 6 hours (no idea how long it actually took).

It had either shut down or hibernated, so I turned it back on the next morning. Windows booted up, but has not been working--I can't use the shortcuts, and even if I click on something from the start menu it won't run. (Firefox, for example, or other programs). It gives me an error message about the data not being found with an I/O error.I am able to use the internet and some programs in Safe Mode, which is what I'm doing now.I can't use my audio system in Safe Mode.I have the upgrade CD for Windows 7--they sent it after I had bought the computer. Do I need to reinstall Windows 7?Can I do it from the update CD?Do I need to back up all of my files (photos, etc) before I reinstall it?

Secondary HDD Works Fine But Cannot Be Disk Cleanup Or Defrag?

Jul 2, 2011

I have a two HDD setup with a newer Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB as my secondary drive. It stores all my bigger files such as video games, videos, and so on. Whenever I try to optimize that hard drive using Disk Cleanup or Disk Defragmenter, it doesn't seem to execute the program. The hard drive is running and DC and DD have it on their list but when I use DC it would just come up with 0 mb to clean every time and DD always run a lot faster than the smaller primary drive which is also Western Digital. Is there somewhere in Windows 7 configuration that I need to change to enable the disk to be optimized?

Loss Of Disk Space On Samsung External 1TB Drive After 'cleanup'

Sep 20, 2012

I know about the immediate 'loss' of disk space owing to the two different methods of measurement. 1Tb to 931Gb - it's annoying, but I'm used to it.No, before a defrag by Fixbee I had 701Gb free, afterwards - in a matter of 2 hours - I had 537Gb. Obviously, I'm not going to use this product again, where a clean-up is obviosly a 'dirt up', but how do I undo the damage that it's caused - especially if it's not the only 'clean up' tool that might do this?

Hyperlinks Just Stopped Working?

Yesterday my hyperlinks stopped working. So, for example, in Outlook where I can normally click a link within an email to go to the web page, I now can't (affecting all emails). I thought it might be an Outlook problem but today I notice there are other programs which should automatically go to a webpage which aren't functioning.I think I downloaded some dodgy software yesterday and uninstalled it, so almost certain that's what's caused the problem.I am using Win7, by the way.

I'm hoping fr soem input on a recent issue that I've started to encounter where Windows 7 'freezes' and my only option is a 'hard reset' via held power button and restart.This has only started happening in the last week or so, and seems to only (and nearly always) happen after I've shut down a game (one of several) running via Steam.The games themselves will work fine, but after I come back out to desktop/Steam then Windows will stop to respond after a couple of instructions. Ctrl-Alt-Delete will fail to bring up the Task Manager screen etc.

Shortcuts (.lnk) Stopped Working?

Feb 8, 2011

It began when my company's network suddenly wouldn't recognize my user/password to access the folders on the server. My network admin tried to reset my password and even created a new user for me. Inexplicably a new problem arose. Clicking icons on the desktop or the start menu stopped working. I found that opening the file location and clicking the .exe did work.The problem remained when logging in as the local administrator.I found that the problem occurs on all .LNK files.System Restore to a month ago had no effect. Am I mistaken in believing that this proves that the problem isn't in the registry? I did a full disk virus check using the ESET a/v software on the computer as well as with MalwareBytes. No effect.

Alt Key Combinations Have Stopped Working?

May 1, 2011

Recently I began having issues with my alt keys in games. I use a razer lycosa keyboard, as well as an n52te gamepad. Using a gamepad as my main source of imput during gameplay, the alt key is extremely useful as it allows me to have a whole additional set of keybinds with the limited amount of keys the gamepad has in comparison to the keyboard.A few weeks back I was gaming and noticed that if i was holding alt, and trying to use my movement keys (wsad is how I have the gamepad setup) the a, s, and d keys would not move my character on the gamepad or keyboard. If I just press a, s, or d on the gamepad or the keyboard without holding alt, they all work properly. Strangely, alt + W works fine and will move my character forward, and it seems to be only the a, s, and d keys being affected..My first thought was that maybe somehow i had bound something to Alt + a, s, or d ingame so i made sure nothing was bound to those keys. On a side note, the easiest way to do this generally besides checking through manually would be to just bind said keys, and then change that bind to something else. On the keybind screen in games, Alt + a, s, or d would have no effect, as if it hadnt been pressed, and would still be awaiting imput as to what key to bind.

I am running my games as administrator on a windows 7 x64 system, nothing running besides the game client. Multiple virus scans on the machine to make sure malware isnt the cause. Razer lycosa drivers installed and up to date from razer's website, same with the n52te, and i cant think of anything installed recently within the time that the problem suddenly started occurring.Although I initially noticed this problem appearing in games, it is also within windows itself. I guess theres a chance the gamepad/keyboard are going bad...but i had this problem occur a few months back and it seemed to magically fix itself, so i never had to persue it any further. Also the fact that they keys by themselves work properly on the keyboard and pad, including alt, but that when used in combination its as if theyre not even being pressed.

All USB Ports Stopped Working?

Feb 8, 2012

Both USB ports at my laptop (Toshiba Satellite C650, Windows 7 home premium, SP1, x64) stopped working after plugging in and unplugging several Garmin Forerunner 305 watches in a row. Everything looks all right in the device manage (no exclamations marks). I have reinstalled everything that has something to do with USB in the device manager, several times. Updated BIOS and used Windows update to get all the latest drivers and fixes.I have taken out the battery and let the computer "rest" for several hours without any power supply.I have tried to do some changes in registry key according to these instructions: USB ports suddenly stopped working in Windows 7 RC1 - Microsoft Answers (I managed to delete Lowerfilters).And of course I have tried with different USB-sticks, mouses, external hard drive etc. There is no power in the ports. When I plug in my Garmin Watch it does not charge.I installed and tried two registry cleaners (TweakNow RegCleaner 2011 and Glary utilities). After using them I got some hope back when I got a bit of reaction from one of the ports. A few times after plugging in something it started to install the driver but stopped immediately - telling me that the driver cannot be installed because the device is not plugged in (while it is).

I consider to do system restore to factory settings but before that I have to copy and save everything which is a bit complicated since non of the ports is working. If the restore to factory settings does not work, then I believe there is a problem with the hardware and I have to get the motherboard replaced.
