So you have installed and uninstalled programs over the years. Did you know you could have dozens or even hundreds of empty folders on your computer. Delete these Folders with Empty Folder Nuker. Empty Folder Nuker deletes empty folders and insures if there are subfolders with files, it skips these folders.
The base folder is the hard drive or a directory you want to check.
It will take some time to scan each drive. Deleting empty folders will optimize your hard drive (especially after defragging).
So what was the result?
You should scan through and make sure you check only folders that are not needed. This program is around 99% accurate. DO NOT DELETE YOUR TEMP FOLDER OR OTHER FOLDERS THAT WARN THEY ARE SYSTEMS FOLDERS.
I can’t help but visit Rick’s blog several times per week. With over 600 former students and 80 current students I try to feed them freeware, opensource and software that is used in enterprise. Rick features a bonus area that goes over to Bookmarks4techs which is his managed site of technical blogs and websites (one of the largest if not the largest on the web). Recently he featured AnVir Task Manager which shows everything you can imagine in your Windows process, and start-up allowing you to fully tweak your pc, control services, CPU, disk monitoring, remove malware and viruses and more.
Weighing in at 6.3 mb, AnVir Task Manager is easy to install and gives an excellent view of the items listed above. During the installation I recommend not to install the registry clean pro. (Uncheck the box) Here’s a few screenshots of this excellent program. Great find Rick!
