To do this, right-click on the Recycle Bin on your desktop and then choose Empty Recycle Bin.But the information is still on your hard drive.The only thing that a computer does is mark the space taken by the deleted file and note that it is available.if you wish to actually remove files, a program such as Max File Shredder will take files that are deleted and write over their space to remove any evidence of the file’s existence.

thanks man made a huge difference. with very simple and easy to use instructions...

Thanks Eric. Too bad our PC's don't fix themselves. I look forward to simpler PC's in the future that will be less prone to the messes that we all get ourselves into. Happy New Year!

I was never interested in Microsoft/Apple fights. After one year of forced using Mac OS X I am interested :-)

Yes, Windos has its bugs, but still it's great comparing OS X. Like that stupid feature - if you open CD-ROMD drive and take out CD/DVD before deleting the icon on the desktop - OS X FREEZE!!! Now that's for a headache, not some funny Win slowdown when opening Photoshop.

I mean - use whatever you want. People has great feelings that Gates is gonna bankrupt because of them using Linux and stuff... but that's good for them. What I need is functioning computer - it does what I want when I want and don't have to think how to make things work, they just do. Like: wanna see a movie? I don't want half an hour looking for patches and plug-ins to watch a movie. I just doubleclicks and WMP plays the movie - simple and with no headache :) (ok I use the PowerDVD for watching DVD's but that's it).

So - don't kill me :-) I just really like Windows because I'm just regular user not some high-tech PC engineer wanted to do things in his own OS. I just want to work and relax :-)

Never mind the money…. From what I’ ve heard about Windows Vista’ s intrusive qualities, I don’ t understand why anyone would upgrade to it… I’ ve heard that it’ s built in risk assessments will automatically delete components it deems risky- whether you want it to or not… and there is concern that it will detect disable and/ or remove pirated software and media even of“ questionable provenance”… it has built in proprietary HD media decoding software, but it’ s evidently been crippled so that it will not...

Each of the boys got their own accounts with names they made up with a little help and they got to choose their own penguins. They each have a password that exceeds the site’ s minimum requirements and I made each brother leave the room when we were typing in the other boy’ s password. We sat down and discussed what is appropriate behavior online and what is not. I guess I’ ve talked about it enough in the past because they both knew that telling anyone their real name, phone number or address is a no- no,...

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Tip #7 is espacially good for ALL users. I don't know why so many PC users like their desktop cluttered with no square inch of space left free. My desktop contains 3 icons: My Computer, Network Neighbourhood and Recycle Bin. Nothing else, not even IE icon! Everything I need on a regular basis is kept in the taskbar. So I enjoy a wallpaper at its best.

As a sys admin with 9 years Microsoft exeperience, you is right on. I've killed my fair share of systems, both workstations and servers. Sometimes you must play doctor, no way around it (ever support legacy or custom applications?). But now, before even thinking about it, my number activity is a registry backup, and a system restore point, if possible. The more important the machine, the more important the backup.

Good afternoon. Treat all disasters as if they were trivialities but never treat a triviality as if it were a disaster.
I am from Barbados and also now am reading in English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "There have mostly been lists of atobe pushed."

Thank you so much for your future answers :p. Larrimore.

Windows registry is the heart of each computer. The longer use of computers, the more software installed, registry garbage inside the computer registry will
be more. Most of the software will add unnecessary junk to the registry which makes the computer crash or slower and slower. If you have the following problem, and answered yes, then you need to clear your PC using the registry cleaner software.
Registry software could make you modify registry very easy, if you don't know which one to use, please reference the following introduction.[link=http://www.harddiskdriverepair.com/hddrecovery/five-best-registry-cleaner-software-reviews.html]Best Registry Cleaner Software Reviews[/link]
