Hi all,

I have a MacBook Pro with Bootcamp, on which I am running Windows 7. I've had it since 2011 and think the system has accumulated a lot of junk over the years. My question is this:

I have very little installed on my hard drive but the memory is nearly full and my laptop is being VERY slow. How can I free up the memory of all the junk and speed my system up? I've done all the normal things but the problem is still there and frustrating me. I've even tried 'pagefile.sys'. But don't really know what I'm doing with that. A friend suggested 'Treesize' too, but again not sure what I'm doing with it either. I've even tried reinstalling Windows but a it won't let me, an error message, I can't remember the error number, appears.

Please help!
