All-In-One System Tools

  • SUPERAntiSpyware
    SUPERAntispyware might not be as recognizable a name to you but don't let that stop you. SUPERAntiSpyware has saved me a few times when other programs have failed to detect or remove a problem.

Hi! Some good freeware in that list @BoraMurdar . I'm just not a fan of snake oil programs that mess with my registry and promise to clean up my PC and make it run faster. I'll clean my own PC. I won't name the snake oil programs freeware, but there are some on that list that won't get installed on my PC. However there are some good ones in that list also. I trust Major Geeks for down loads, but Tim is in the game to make money. Major Geeks is about the only site you can trust these days for freeware down loads. Most have PUP's. I hate PUP's
PS Still watching the sun set over the ocean Tim??;);)

This is wonderful list with a rich variety of free software (apart from those donetao warns may be registry "snake oil"). Thank you for sharing your map to buried treasures, BoraMurdar! Perhaps "Tim" watches the sun set from a tropical island beach.:D

Don't forget Softpedia. And it has a much bigger database than MajorGeeks, the biggest of all with 1.2 million softwares.

Honestly the purpose of these cleaners is not to speed up the performance, although some might claim to do so. Deleting a few 50 to 100 keys among the 10,000's or more of the keys isn't going to give any performance advantage.

However if you are careless and one who installs/uninstall a boatload of programs on your PC then using the registry cleaners *could* help you. If you've installed something that plugs into Windows in some way or the other and doesn't work good and also doesn't uninstall properly, you might take a look at these RC's.

Simple advice is that, don't make registry cleaner as a part of your daily computer maintenance. Simply do it, if you find that when Windows is acting in really odd or undesirable ways. This might really help. Once a month might not hurt either, but most of all don't forget to backup your registry before you *sweep* it, any decent RC would do that anyway.
