Hello Dell Forum,
This Tim the grandson of tuscaloosa, hope its not too late to continue and find out what is wrong with this netbook, while not particularly computer savvy, I am a bit more than grandad and certainly have more patience (!).

4. I have deleted everything on the emails, sent and deleted. Temp files etc.
It seems that if you leave it for a while or when you use it, the temp files get full again and you have to delete them, this happens every 10 minutes or so.
There is no photos or music files. Grandad only uses it to rant on forums and the like, saves on postage stamps I guess. Thanks again.
