Start >> All programs >> Accesories >> System Tools >> Disk Cleanup

choose the drive you want to cleanup, it will find all files that are not needed and delete them!

You can't delete system32 cause all files are protected.
It will pop up with an error.

UAC is only if you got vista which im sure you dont have.
As to speeding it up? Kill all unnecesary programs that run in the background.

THat aside I suggest you get more ram or something :D
Oh and clean out the inside of your computer.

The biggest factor would be applications that are already running. Check your task tray. Right click and exit out of things you may not need. Keep in mind, some of those things are needed, but some things aren't.

Another thing is to stop certain apps from opening upon turning on the computer. This will not only speed up your boost time, but also keep them from taking up your processors speed.

Lastly, remove all apps from your fire fox. These slow it down greatly.

Oh yeah, one more thing. Go to the page that lets you search throughout your entire computers files. Search for things like "setup" "readme" "read" ect. Worthless files. Like chances are you have the installation set ups for half your downloads, and then there are all those files that are like read me's just giving you instructions.

Again, delete files at your own risk. I r just 1337 at teh internetz.

Long time no see.

CCleaner is fast and gets rid of alot of unneeded stuff. But when I clear my comp I like to do it manually so I know what I'm deleting.

Buy more RAM. You can run more stuff at a time. I have 4GB's and I'm running rather well. :P
