    Hi

    I am trying to clean up a PC and wondered if anyone was using PC Optimizer and what their thoughts on the subject of clean ups might be

    thanks
     
  2. Recommend CCleaner (ccleaner.com) - it cleans everything and is widely used

    "CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. "
     
  3. Just be careful with eraser or CC because if you delete some important files (system files) you'll be up a creek without a paddle.

    garbage
     
  5. Simpler solution exists, try "msconfig" from the Start>Run

    Jump to "Startup" tab and then get rid of all junk that auto-starts.


    Except for stuff that where command is residing in "c:\windows\system32\.." and "rundll32.exe.."
