I don't use ANY system "optimizers," third party defragmenters, cleaners, etc. I use the built in Windows Disk Defragmenter, along with command line defrag tools (defrag.exe) and some common sense, as well as an ssd (solid state drive) to keep my installation fast. I used to use optimizers, but now I don't. I would rather use the Microsoft-designed tools to keep my system clean and optimized, rather than use some third party's tool. Microsoft knows their operating system better than anyone else.

And yet MSE is a POS and Macrium Reflect is way better than Windows Backup.

True

If they wished, and there were no other factors to consider, Microsoft could supply with Windows utilities that could rival the best commercial products available. But there are factors that preclude this.

This may surprise some but Microsoft does not have unlimited resources. They must chose where the available resources are best used. Microsoft has chosen to concentrate on the OS itself and provide with Windows only basic utilities and other software.

If Microsoft were to provide first class utilities and other software with Windows this would leave many commercial organizations with no market for their products. Microsoft would be seen as having an unfair advantage, and the courts agreed. This has led to some very lengthy and expensive legal battles. This is why Microsoft was forced to create special N versions of Vista and later that left out Media player and related software. This was a requirement for the sale of Windows in the European Union.

For what purpose would one ever use a reg cleaner in Windows 7 ? That is as useful as a shot in the knee.

Legal squabbles are always interesting to know.

@whs:
Oh, just an old "trend" I was wondering if I should keep or not from XP days. I have been reading threads here and learning about Windows 7, considering I have just had it for 2 weeks or so. Informative threads around here as always, even the old threads.

Registry Cleaners?
Is a registry cleaner necessary? On almost all of them I've used, it detects tens or hundreds of "problems" that need to be fixed, on freshly installed systems too. And after fixing them, if I run another scan, it finds even more! :confused: Does it make my system "faster" in any noticeable way?...
