If your computer is slowing down, you probably know that cleaning up your disk often helps. In Windows, you can find a standard Disk Cleanup tool in your Start menu.

You can use it to clean out temporary files, thumbnails and cached Web pages that are slowing down your computer. In just a few minutes, you can wipe out a lot of the clutter in there, to speed it up.

It's good to maintain your computer's performance. But, cleaning out your hard disk doesn't always mean the stuff you deleted is completely gone.

In fact, hackers can recover information you thought was gone. To permanently clean out clutter from your hard disk, there's a free alternative to your computer's Disk Cleanup. It's called KCleaner.

It works like the disk cleanup tool on your computer. You click on the types of files you want to delete, like Temporary Files, Windows Log Files, Adobe Reader Cache, and many others. (See photo next page.)
