HOW TO: Clearing your Computer's Temporary Files

If your computer is running slow you may want to clear all the "Temp" files. These are files that you don't need. 
Here's how to get rid of them... and once you do, I guarantee your computer will work faster! 
 Clearing your Temporary Files

To delete your Windows temporary files, read the sections below for the operating system you are running:

To delete your Windows temporary files on Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8:

1)     Click on Start (For Windows 8, hit shortcut Windows key + R)
2)    Type %temp% in the search box, and then hit the Enter key.
3)     Click on one of the files in the folder that just opened, and press Ctrl + A to select all of the files in this folder.
4)     Press the Delete key on your keyboard.
5)    When prompted if you are sure, choose Yes.

If you receive a Error Deleting File or Folder message while the files are being deleted, it just means that one of the files is in use by a program right now. Click OK, close all open programs, and repeat the steps above. If this continues, try restarting your PC and repeating the process again.

6) Empty Recycle Bin!  

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
