How do you find and delete the temp files in Vista.    Not the temporary 
internet files, just the temp files that are not needed.   Thanks.

Just run Disk Cleanup once in a while..
Open "Computer"
right-click on the "C" drive,
select "Properties"
click on "Disk Cleanup"


and/or use CCleaner

Go to Start Menu, All programs, Accessories, System Tools, then run 
"Disk Cleanup". This will let you delete temp files and (optionally) a 
lot of other crud on your disk as well. No need to download any 3rd 
party utilities; this is a built-in Windows tool.

Hope it helps,

Andrew

File Shortcuts
I am using Windows XP Pro SP1a with Excel 2003. I created a shortcut to a file I use alot, and placed it on my desktop. This location is on a network drive.

how disable msg: "Your files are attached & ready to send"
In Windows explorer when I want to e-mail a file, I right click on the file, select Send To and then Mail Recipient. In the resulting Outlook window, It always includes in the body of the e-mail: "Your files are attached and ready to send." How do I disable getting this message in the body of the e-mail. It really serves no purpose and gets in the way of any message I want to write. Thank you. Just delete the text & change the subject line - or instead of doing it this way, create a new message, and attach the file (browse to it). Andrew wrote: > In Windows explorer w...

MSM2005 and archive file
Several months ago, I archived year 2003 transactions from my mny file into a separate file. Recently, I realized that it's been a really long time since I reconciled my "checkbook". It was last reconciled 9/2003 meaning that my archive included unreconciled transactions. I loaded my archive file and started catching up. In fact I got so far as 6/2004 when I realized that I had been reconciling my archive instead of my normal file. It is interesting that my archive had current transactions in it to reconcile! Hopefully I am not screwed up to badly. Do I have to re-reconcile 1/...

#Temp vs @Temp memory vs disk etc.
Hi all I have a query where I materialise (materialize) a set of records to a temporary table. There are a number of reasons that I do this rather than use a CTE or derived table that for sake of discussion (for now at least) i'd like to assume are valid :-) For another reason I need to use dynamic sql because the nature of the UI is so fluid (many column combinations). I use a #temp table so that the result set is avaiable both inside and outside the dynamic calls. This all works fine I am considering @Temp because I hear that the table is entirely loaded into memo...

Choosing File Details to Include
When syncing my device through WMP using WMA files all the file details (such as artist name, album name) were transfered with the file. However, when I tried to sync MP3 files the only info that transferred was the file (song) name - it also had included the the track# as part of the song name. Last night I THINK I came across a window where I could check off which details to include and also had the option to remove the track # from the song name. Today I cannot find that screen anywhere. Where would I have seen such a screen and how do I find it again? Thanks -- ...

Windows mail times out sending wmv file in windows mail
Cannot send a wmv file 5.10MB, recieves just fine but times out when sending. The size is probably the issue. An attachment adds to the size about 35% due to encoding, so your 5.10MB file is now roughly 7MB. You can try the following, but it will only help if your server allows a message of that size. In Tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties | Advanced, set the time-out slider to the max. Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that eats up CPUs, slows down sending and receiving, and causes a multitude of problems such as ...

Out of MS-DOS File Handles
I have put together a very simple database with 5 tables and a couple of queries in Access 97. When I converted this to Access 2002 on one of my colleagues PC's (networked), I kept getting the 'Out of MS-DOS File Handles' when trying to run any of the two queries.
