Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have used it before but it seems that it "crapped" my PC. I uninstalled it and I promised to myself that I would never ever use those AIO PC utility programs. The last AIO PC utility software I used was TU2010. Uninstalled because it slowed down my computer.

CCleaner for the win! Hands down.

Operating System : Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 6.01.7600 SP1 (x64)

i agree with carlTR6
you dont need to optimize windows 7 its been built into the architecture so many improvements in a operating system have been made in windows 7 if you start to tweak it the balance Microsoft got right in it gets changed. (Windows Registry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) ( (Beware of free Registry Cleaners and Registry Optimizers)

Thank you, Brian. Very well said.

Windows is a closed source system. Developers of registry cleaners and system utilities do not have the core code of Win 7 and are not working on definitive information, but rather they are going on past knowledge and experience. Automatic cleaners and tweakers (tuneup utilities) will usually have to do some guesswork.

At best, tuneup utilities are pure snake oil. At best, they do nothing and have no effect on your system. At worst, they can damage and corrupt your system. There is no need whatsoever for a tuneup utility with Win 7. Win 7 is not XP and the knowledge we learned about XP does not apply to Win 7.

All reg cleaners, dupe finders, memory optimizers, and tuneup apps are a scam. They won't make a computer any faster, fix crashes, ect. They can break a lot of things. Many that you won't notice immediately. Even CrapCleaner is crap.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I agree with Carl.

I think sometimes the expectation the product may help, makes it seem as if its doing something when in reality it isn't ... if that makes sense.

From my limited experience, I have found the more you try to tweak and optimize 7 , only degrades performance.

With the exception a few small tweaks such as maybe disabling the Hiberfile to save space on a SSD.

Otherwise, leaving it alone it seems to tweak itself just fine.

IMHO, if it is at the point you need to do serious tinkering with 7s core functionality to get it running smooth, you likely need hardware upgrades.
And sadly, there is no software or tweak out there that can compensate for Hardware.

Very well said, Wishmaster. I learned the lessons I posted above the hard way. However, I was experimenting and prepared with an image backup.

Windows 7 x64 Home Premium

Back when I was running Vista I used Advanced System Care and their Smart Defrag did a fair job, but after IObit got caught stealing AV definitions from Malwarebytes I uninstalled the program and found a freeware disk defrag and optimizer in MyDefrag (formerly JK Defrag) which has a far superior algorithm for moving the most frequently used programs to the outside of the disk which has made a noticeable improvement in the speed which programs open on my 1TB Hitachi drive in my Win 7 computer since I started using it.

"MyDefrag organizes files into zones, such as directories, Windows files, files used while booting, regular files, and rarely used files. The most accessed files are placed at the beginning of the harddisk, and files that are commonly used together are placed in close proximity to each other. This results in a dramatic speed increase, and is in fact more important than defragmentation. The program comes with scripts with a zone organization suitable for most users, power users can customize the zones through scripts"
