I am following some instructions in More Ways To Speed Up Windows XP to help speed up my computer. One of those was to delete the
temp folder on shutdown. Yet after I shutdown and then boot up, the script did not touch my
temp folder, and I am unsure what's wrong. What should I change?
Here are the instructions I have:
1. Open Notepad and create a new file with the following entries: RD /S /q “C:\Documents and Settings\"UserName without quotes”\Local Settings\ History” RD /S /q “C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\History” RD /S /q “D:\Temp” <–”Deletes temp folder, type in the location of your temp folder” 2. Save the new file as anything you like, but it has to be a ‘.bat’ file, for example, `fastboot.bat` or `deltemp.bat` 3. Click ‘Start’ then ‘Run’ 4. Type in ‘gpedit.msc’ and hit ‘OK’ 5. Click on ‘Computer Configuration’ then ‘Windows Settings’ 6. Double-click on ‘Scripts’ and then on ‘Shutdown’ 7. Click ‘Add’ and find the batch file that you created and then press ‘OK’
I have followed these instructions, and I see where Windows says "Running Shutdown Script". Am I missing something here?
