I have Norton System Works. I I dont know any thing about the program Other than how to run scans. My computer has been runing slow and after runing a check up I found out that I had 8 Temporary files that I cant find to delete. While searching for these files I notice there is a 'Protected Recycle Bin'. When I right click on 'Empty Norton Protected Recycle Bin' I get the following message: "There are 1,169 protected files total on Drive C. You have 508 protected files on Drive C." Underneath this are three boxes: Purge Yours/ Purge All/ Cancel What does all this mean? What am I purging, and is it safe to do so? Thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction.
