How can I get my computer back to normal after deleting files and folders that have effected the computer?

by on May 8, 2009

Q: My computer was running really slow so I went and deleted some files – including temporary Internet files and folders where the names were just a bunch of random letters and that were empty. Obviously this was not a good thing to do because of how my computer is running now.

As well as gradually running slower the longer it has been on, and a bubble appearing stating that my virtual memory is running low, it got to a point yesterday where Internet explorer would open and then just shut down automatically with various error messages showing – didn’t get a chance to write these down. However I seem to now be able to use Internet explorer after running disk clean up and deleting all temporary Internet files and the other things that are ticked as standard.

Following searches on google I reset the virtual memory settings to let windows automatically calculate. However, the same warning bubble has just popped up.

Does anyone know of a way I can fix the problem I have obviously created for good, getting the computer running speed back to normal and without having to run a disk clear up every day?

    Your best bet when the system gets this hosed up is to backup your important data and do a fresh Windows installation.
