Hey, I was just wondering if there were any tips or tricks to keeping my computer running up to speed. I often defragment, use PC Cleanup, and CCleaner and things of that nature. But are there any other things similar to this that will help keep it in good condition?

You should check through all the applications that are set to run at boot and disable any that are not essential.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
