    Hello.

    I have a 3 or 4 years old dell n5110 and it' running quite slow these days. I have W8.1, did the format couple months ago, so i wanted to know any tips how to really deep clean the windows of unwanted files, temp files, programs etc.

    I'm open to any sugestions. :)

    You could always spend some money on the hardware (SSD etc...) if you're after a little speed boost etc...

    I've thought about the SSD, but i have too many movies etc. more then 500 GB and for this kind of data the SSD's are quite expensive.

    Just get an 120GB or 240GB SSD and a decent 2.5" HDD enclosure. You get to keep everything you have on your HDD and you get a fast laptop.

    Its not, just technical previews. It should be released in a few months. Sources from AMD suggested it will be released in June or July.

    Probably way late here and just getting accustomed to the forums, but have you tried PC Crap Cleaner? Been a nice tool for me.
