I use CCleaner and a disk defrag program on a regular basis.
CCleaner is pretty good. With defrag though, if you didn't do anything, Windows 7 auto defrags every Wednesday I believe and you really don't have to defrag unless you're moving around large sound banks, or video files (huge 1-4GB files), otherwise in my opinion I think windows 7 does a great job.
I also think it does boot faster. I just timed the desktop and mac (albeit firewire target disk mode (booting external OS) and Windows was faster.
Go windows, go, go, go, go...
