How can you safely clean/clear memory on your computer?
My computer has been warning me that it's running low on memory and prompts me to close things down. I click cancel and convince myself that, at some point before too much more time goes by, I need to figure out how to clean some memory. Well, I procrastinated long enough and my computer shut down on me today. Everything is okay, but I realize I have to address this before my computer fries. I'm afraid of deleting or moving things that I don't want to get rid of and I don't understand cookies and caches.
Hello cat, try this http://mr-veg.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-m … step-guide , even if you don't have windows 7 clear out you temp cache as given in the first step. Also are you getting a warning on your disk memory (c drive d drive) or RAM (system dynamic memory) ? Can you put a screenshot I can help better once I see the warning
I'll start by reading your hub and clear the temp cache (yes I have windows 7). I'm no sure about my c drive, d driver or RAM, but will take a screen shot next time it appears. At least I have some steps to start with. Thanks!
Cool ! Windows 7 is easier to handle, you just need to follow the hub with step by step images that I included. Let me know how it went and if it did help. And if it reoccurs again put a screen shot and I will look to it So btw how was your day?
It is a possibility that your hd is almost full. try uninstalling some programs that use alot of memory and delete some files like movies to free some space on your hd.
Yes it is a possibility, but I'm afraid of not knowing what to get rid of. I don't even know what programs I use on a regular basis. Seems everytime I start deleting things my computer ends up with broken channels, links, programs, etc. ?
