I am using Windows XP Pro, and I need to clean out an accumulation of unused programmes and other stuff from the hard disc.

Have a copy of Norton Clean Sweep but have never used it. Is there anything I should watch for, or any precautions I need to take?

If you have not already started, my advice would be to not try and do too much "cleaning" at once in case things go wrong as it makes it very difficult to find out what was the cause of the problems.

I would also ensure that deleted items went into the Recycle Bin for a few days, preferably a week, so that they could be restored if necessary.
