Clean up Windows 7 with CleanMyMac

Now, next time your finger accidentally taps delete, you’ll be saved by the warning.

Instead of all these different manual methods, you could download a specialist cleaning app called CleanMyPC. This app is a one-stop solution for many issues that slow your computer, including what we mentioned above but all whole lot more than that. Once installed a simple click on each of the tools will automatically start the cleaning process.

The normal Windows uninstall will leave some parts of the program behind, which is why an even better method is to use the Uninstaller feature in CleanMyPC. It will remove every inch of the program to maximize the space you free up.

PC problems are frustrating, especially when you aren't an experienced user and deep down you know it would probably be a quick and easy fix if you just had the knowledge. Unfortunately, even a simple PC fix can feel out of reach.

To start with, we need to know which version of Windows is on your PC. Each version has its unique strengths and problems, so we’ve broken our tips into three sections – Windows 10, Windows 8, and Windows 7. No, we didn’t miss one, there is no Windows 9. Yeah, we don't know why either.

A familiar Windows 7 problem is the warning dialog, ‘there is a problem with this website’s security certificate,' which you receive while browsing the web. If you get this error often, it’s probably due to your time and date being incorrect.

Another option is an app created specifically for the cleaning of Windows systems. CleanMyPC doesn’t just find and easily remove junk files, it is a complete PC diagnostic solution. It couldn’t be easier to use and allows normal people to clean their PC like a pro.

The old kid on the block. Windows 7 is still a popular choice, especially for casual users who aren’t keen to have to re-learn their way around newer versions of Windows. One day these users will have to upgrade but right now Microsoft intends to keep supporting Windows 7 until 2020, so you’ve still got time.

Inexperienced PC users will often worry about doing something that "breaks" Windows. That’s why the System Restore feature is the safety net that everyone should be using. When something "breaks", System Restore allows you to roll back the clock to a time when everything was working well.

If Microsoft is to be believed, this is the final version of Windows. That doesn’t mean they won’t be updating it, though, it just means that your operating system changes will evolve more naturally. We’re all for it as switching to a new Windows was always such a hassle. While it’s considered the best Windows experience so far, even Windows 10 isn’t perfect. Here are five common Windows 10 problems with easy fixes that anyone can solve.

Windows 8 caters for devices that have high-resolution displays. If you could zoom in, you’d see that these displays effectively have more dots. A common Windows 8 problem is when an old application isn’t able to scale itself to this resolution. When this occurs Windows jumps in to save the day by doubling the size of the interface.

If you were recently a Windows 7 user, you would have noticed that, unlike in 7, in Windows 8 a deleted file moves into the recycle bin without warning. This saves time for power users, but if you aren’t as comfortable at the keyboard, you probably want an extra step before a file is moved to the trash. Luckily you can turn the warning dialog back on by following these steps:

Many programs will load when Windows start, even though they don’t need to. This wastes your resources. To trim the fat follow these steps:

Now just look through the list and if you see a program that you know you don’t use very often, turn it off and “apply”.

Is Windows 8 performing slower and slower every day? Many things could be dragging your system down. You may think you need an expert to solve them, but in a lot of cases you can do a lot of good yourself.

Free hard drive space is incredibly important to a smooth running Windows system. If you are storing data on your Windows/system drive then we would recommend moving these files to another internal drive, or an external drive.

To perform operations smoothly, Windows 7 needs a lot of free space. To free up space, you should take a look at your installed programs. Everyone has at least a few programs, uninstalled ages ago, that are never used but take up disk space and system resources.

Hi Dean, this could be a number of problems. Most simple one (and therefore probably unlikely but worth a try) is that the window channels have become dry and the window won't run smoothly. You could try spraying some silicone spray into the window channels where the glass slides up and down. However, it's more likely that the problem lies either with the wiring or the motor. Zafiras tend to suffer from the wiring to the door becoming damaged where it runs from the car's A pillar to the door. The constant moving of the wiring loom every time the door is open and closed can lead to the wiring becoming damaged - I's have a look at this first. There should be a plastic/rubber grommet which the wiring loom runs in between the A pillar and the door - check if there are any broken wires. If it's not that I would think there might be a problem with the window motor or the window regulator. Good luck in getting it fixed.

Another solution would be to manually clean out all the temporary junk files that Windows accumulates over time. To do this, simply run the Windows 8 app called Disk Cleanup and follow the instructions.

How annoying is it to double click on a file and have it open with an app you don’t recognize? Windows 10 wants you to use its apps as the default, but the best apps are often not Windows apps. To get Windows to always open particular files with the apps that you want, follow these easy steps.

It’s still a great operating system, though, so if you’re still on board, here are some common computer problems and their easy fixes to make your journey as comfortable as possible.
