You're running MSE and NOD32 at the same time? Might not be such a good idea, antiviruses usually conflict with each other since they each use low-level access to the system and that can really bork things up badly.

Strongly suggest you uninstall one of these - personally I would keep MSE and remove NOD32.

There's a huge potential for optimizing right there!

+1. Better no real time shields than 2 running.

I generally don't do tweak tools unless they have one specific function. Like now and then, maybe once every 3 months, I'll run NTREGOPT. It doesn't "clean" the Registry. It just copies the hives to new files and marks the old ones for delete on next boot. I notice smoother boots for a few days afterward.

Other than that I run a light defrag program. Now I'm using Purim free defrag. Has a few options but it doesn't beat the hell out of the drive in order to save it. It's a very quick defrag esp. if you have 60 or 70% free space on the drive before defragging.

I stay away from tools that "just do it" without telling you what they're doing. Something that gives very specific options you may be ok if you know what's involved.

That's the thing about most of these "optimizers"...they don't tell you exactly what they do, and sometimes just do dumb [expletive].

I've tried out a few in the past - more to see how they work than to really try to optimize anything - and always use Total Uninstall to monitor (and undo) the changes made.

The things I've seen some of them do make me want to strangle the person who wrote them...

NOD32

For complete safety

I have run MSE and ESET at the same time but it really isnt a good idea because the conflict can let malware in.

4 malware apps is just overkill. If you need that many you are going to some very bad places on the internet.

You are your best defense, dont click it.

I'm surprised the system functioned at all. I'm not a big believer in real time shields. Maybe ok if all you do is surf and email. But they interfere with really using the machine. Something you can start and stop like Sandboxie I'd be more inclined to use.

Registry optimizer
When I used Windows XP I had a utility that would back up and optimize the registry. If my memory serves me correctly, it was called ERUNT. But it doesn't seem to work on Windows 7. Does anyone one know of such a utility that will work on Windows 7? Thanks.
