95 Is Alive
Over time files will accumulate in any machine.
These could be left over files from an uninstalled program, files we
tucked away and forgot about or that are no longer current or needed,
or files saved by scandisk after a "blue screen of death" shutdown.
And, this one is almost as bad as asking for directions or buying a
map when the significant other is with us ( yes dear I did want to stop
by Miami on the way from Memphis to Nashville ) the files created when
we do the unthinkable and click "Help" or F1.
Everyone knows that files ending with .gid .tmp .chk, and, if you're never going to take the "windows tour" again, the .avi files associated with the tour are safe to delete any time. If you need to click help again it will make a new .gid file. Use the find files or folders feature and enter *.gid or *.tmp etc, and Recycle them.
Note: if you use the Grisoft AVG antivirus program, do not delete the .avi file found in the Grisoft directory.
There are some nice utility programs out there that will help us find even more.
Click Go get it to find it. Clicking Image will open a new page and Close Page will bring you back.
These can also be used with Windows 98.
Young folks, don't try anything on the Parent's computer without permission.
