This board has a definite cosmopolitan membership. Perhaps, even though the poster is self-described as living in the US, English is not his first language?

Any help please.

Yeah, same issues with sentence structure leading me to believe my earlier thought might be accurate in regard to language familiarity of the OP.

Just take care of your PC regularly, its like a car, you don't tweak it, its starts going bad. Do disk cleanup, defrag, remove unneeded programs, do malware scans, clean your hardware and control the content you keep inside your system to keep it in good shape.

But you will in deed need to do a reinstall sometime ever few months because such performance bogging things like orphaned, folders , files and registry entries that are left over by removed applications are just hard to locate and remove manually and somehow risky. Its the main weakness I really think Microsoft should better fix in their future operating systems.

I wouldn't really want to build a PC set from old hardware. Yes, its cheaper this way but by the gains it has on performance, its just not as good as new ones.

I read the quote, did a double take and said "wait, what?"

Although the quote presented by Lordbob may have been better grammatically constructed than the OP's initial presentation in this thread, it contained similar grammatical errors. Therefore, I stand by my initial assessment.

You might want to re-examine the sentence structure in your sig, Darician.

Oh I know it's wrong but at least you can get the gist of it. I have since corrected it ... the signature I mean. If only I could correct the users, that would certainly be something.

The other past may not be perfect, but it was SIGNIFICANTLY better.
And by significantly, I mean that it was easy to read, compared to this one, which was hard.

I have no doubt he(she) knows English better than that.
