Hey guys.

My computers been acting up a little lately and I've come to the conclusion i need to do a serious cleanup of old unused programs, folders, and drivers.

One folder ive come across is ATI. It contains drivers from versions 10 - 11. Currently my AMD 6950 is on 12.4. Does anyone know if i even need the ATI folder since im running the newer AMD card? I have the AMD folder as well and it has the newest 12.4 driver in it.

you can delete the AMD folder its just a place it puts the files after it un zips also download Ccleaner that will do a good job of cleaning it up

'SlimCleaner', the one 5niper told me about, is really good too... I use both. And did I say it's FREE?

Revo uninstaller is also a great one.

Yea i use CCleaner a few times a day. Perhaps I'm finally approaching a time when i should consider a reformat.

It's a decent pc from dell.. their xps 9000 system. I7 920, 12GB ram, amd 6950 2gb, 1tb wd hdd, titanium soundblaster card, corsair gaming psu @600w.
It runs BF3 with 60+FPS at high or lower graphics touching only 36-40% of the cpu and ram although mid game ill see a sudden second long spike to 100% then back again.
Computer is virus free, spyware is at a minimum, mcafee runs daily.
Im wondering if perhaps a newer gaming grade mobo (currently only thing on my board thats still dell) would improve performance?

I use CCleaner myself from time to time. It is a great and powerful tool.
And like any powerful tool it can do extensive and unimaginable damage!

I know! LOL
