Time to come clean
I gave my computer springclean the other day, on the inside that is.
I have Norton program which identifies all the temporary and redundant files on my hard disk, compresses them down to next to nothing, and archives those files in some deep, dark digital recess. Every time I run the program I manage to free up several precious megabytes to use another day. Despite this however, the program informs me that 93 percent of my computer’s hard drive is occupied.
A PC upgrade is long overdue. Apparently there are many other PC owners who are finally having to bite the bullet and buy new computer, in many cases its their first major purchase for some four to five years. Which explains why the local computer market has been somewhat buoyant lately in the face of worldwide downturn.
By the way, Garth Burleigh is now an up-to-date Norton man, having won SystemWorks Professional Edition in our March reader competition. Congratulations Garth, and happy spring cleaning to you too!
