The Eee PC is part of a line of netbooks made by Asus. Netbooks are smaller, more affordable versions of laptops. They have smaller storage capacity, but still run on the same operating systems as regular-sized computers. Most Eee PCs run on either Windows XP or Windows 7. In these versions of Windows, you can use the Disk Cleanup feature to remove unnecessary files, helping to free up space on the hard drive and enhance the performance of the computer. The Disk Cleanup will remove temporary files that have been downloaded, programs you don't use and temporary Windows files that you don't need.
