    Clear out Your History files

    Whenever you visit a website, it creates temporary Internet files or "cookies" which are stored on your computer. Why are they stored on your computer, well it helps you access information faster, but can take up precious  computer disk space, which will slow your computer down.

    How to Clear the computer's Internet temporary files  and browsing history.

    Go to your browser’s settings. In Google Chrome on a Mac or PC, go to the upper right hand corner and hit settings, then “Show advanced settings,” and hit "Clear browsing data."  Or just get ccleaner from here. (Look for the RED C)
