As we know computers seem to slow from time to time and sometimes just want run because of various reasons that include surfing on the web. Restore don't seem to work as advertised.

Well a buddy told me to set up a surf user identity to use when surfing the web. When it gets corrupted just abandon it and create another. Never surf with your administer user ID.

I had problems that took time to straighten out and then took his advice. My new user account runs better than my existing administrator account.

My daughterss computer was locked up from crap under her user name which wasn't an administrator. I couldn't do much cleaning with it. I log on as me which was the admin and am beginning to make head way.

:???: Wouldn't it be easier to just use your disk clean up tool, delete cookies(depending on what your operating system is, this may be included in the disk clean up tool), and defrag once in a while?

You still have to do basic maintenance you suggest. Sometimes it still isn't enough.

What I described that he recommended is really easy once one try's it.
