    Hey there!
    I just found an old computer full of random junk (which I want to delete) for my little brother.
    Any suggested programs which can do this?

    Piriform’s CCleaner is a quick and easy to use program which makes your computer faster, more secure and more reliable. CCleaner removes cookies, temporary files and various other unused data that clogs up your operating system. This frees up valuable hard disk space allowing your system to run faster. Removing this data also protects your anonymity meaning you can browse online more securely. The built in Registry Cleaner fixes errors and broken settings to make your computer more stable.

    Just search for "factory reset" for your version on Google. Or the easiest way would be to just buy a Hard Disk with a compatible version of Windows/any other OS, and just replace it with the hard disk already installed.

    Maybe you could do a factory reset?

    Not CCleaner...

    Factory Reset :D nah you might not want to do that so start with cCleaner then manually clean up the junk yourself. If you don't care about anything on hat computer a factory reset might be the easiest way to go.

    If the computer is really old and and hasn't been used/started up in a few years or somewhere along that line, you should just reformat it with a recovery disk as the amount of updates on windows will kick in and eventually kill the computer with the lag. Also, windows should have a file cleanup by default, just go to the search bar and type in disc cleanup, it should popup, that cleans all unnecessary files on your computer, including old and temporary files that hasn't been used in a very long time.
    Cheers.
