Default How to delete unseen DVD files from my C drive.

Speaking of Roxio, this is currently installed in my laptop( Sony) and it performed a crappy job and was unable to delete the copied files from the temporary files. Now my c drive just bloated 4 gigs more for a file that I can't find
What I can only see are program files, windows, and drivers...and some kilo bits of some icons etc...but where on earth is that invisible huge video file as I can't find it.
Can somebody give me an idea how to sort it out?
Thanks in advance....

Try emptying your recycle bin. Sometimes emptying the recycle bin fixes the memory problem as the files are deleted yet saved in there.

I also like to run CCleaner. It cleans out the temp files + other unnecessary crap. Get it here. The best part it is free!

I also like the registry cleaner part because you can save a back-up before deleting anything.

There is a handy little program Called Folder Report that will scan the whole hard drive and list folders\files you can sort by size

Get it here http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/folrep.html

When you install Microsoft Word or Microsoft Office, it automatically adds "ctfcom.exe" to the Startup list. This is Language Bar feature which uses from 1.5 MB to 4 MB of RAM in idle. To turn it off, head to Control Panel > Region and Language Bar Options > Language tab > Details button > Advanced tab > Select “Turn off advanced text services” under System Configuration

Regards

to turn off auto insert notification, look in imgburn under tools/settings/device

uncheck and those pesky sony dvd's and others won't try to play or autoinstall their crap

never trust anything from sony called root
especially with a go.exe file
