I've been using a computer (not this one) since 1987. The last 5 years or so I've been using these system optimizer(s) to clean junk files and remove internet traces from my system. I can see the benefits of this. I have a couple questions concerning these so-called system optimizers.
First, does Windows Disk Cleaner clean as well as these other cleaners out on the market? For the first time I'm considering simply using Disk Cleaner to do my maintenance with.
Second, these Registry cleaners. So far I really haven'[t noticed any performance increase when using these registry cleaners. I was wondering about registry entries left behind by other software after uninstalling them. Is the any way, and this may seem like a dumb question, that these entries left behind by uninstalled software, can be triggers for malware? Seems today every product or web site wants to access your computer in some shape or form. How do I know that registry entries left behind aren't somehow access the web without my knowledge. I do have 3 antimalware programs with one real time and the other two strictly for scanning.
