Greg if you are referring to my comment on tweaking I was referring to Brinks optimise tutorial so I just wanted to make that clear as - I would never use those rotten apps one gets bombarded with - I know I am a bit thick and perhaps stupid but not that thick and stupid.

Still can't take a trick so might take a small vacation.

No at all John. I was referring to tweaking apps and optimizing suites in general.

The last one I used was in Vista, Auslogics Boost Speed. I think I installed it in Win7 once and realized it had no place there in an already perfect OS.

CCleaner and Disk Cleanup.

CCleaner can be used to clear browsing history, uninstall programs, delete temp files or unneeded software.
Disk Cleanup is used to free more disk space by doing almost the same as CCleaner if you don't have enough space for your Windows 7 C: partition. If you have used Disk Cleanup but still have not enough space, you'll need to extend your current partition. If all else fails, you'll need to replace your old harddisk with bigger storage (500 GB recommended) and re-install Windows and activate using your product key on the bottom of your laptop.

CCleaner is a very safe app, that is used daily by millions without issue. All browsers store temp files that need to be cleaned from time to time, and unless you are only using IE9, there is not an easy way to do this without programs like CCleaner. It's easy to customize to save needed cookies, and is completely safe to use.

Another very strong vote for CCleaner which has many useful features (as those who have seen my posts know).

I can not praise CCleaner enough.

CCleaner is very mild.

If you would like to see all of the trash that programs which were removed have left behind and still more, then I do suggest letting Auslogics Registry Cleaner take a run over you computer's registry. You will be amazed.

Both of the aforementioned programs will prompt you to save the registry before they make any changes.

CCleaner recently found 30gb of schmutz on one Typhoid Mary's PC which hadn't been cleaned in 6 months.

4gb of it was Firefox temp files which can not be set to Empty after session as can be done in IE9 Advanced settings.

Most of the rest were AppData temp files, more than the size of the OS installation!

When I ran the Registry scan I took a deep breath when asked if I wanted to clean up 1100 errors. But I knew it's no risk in CCLeaner, even though I saved the backup offered.

But don't visit their forums hoping to be treated with thanks for priceless endorsements we have given them in serial threads here for three years. You may be treated shabbily by the snotwads they allow to run wild there who embarass its' good name.

I'd have to agree and go with CCleaner as well. I run it often to get rid of temp files and so forth. I tend to get around 600mb-1gb of temp files.

I don't like Disk Cleanup anymore. As anyone suggested me to use CCleaner to delete temp files than Disk Cleanup.
