I know Bleeping computer doesn't like tuneup utilitys and such I will probalbly hear about it but I'am not a computer pro and actally now just learned how important it is to use Antivirus and as of right now I'am using Kaspersky I like it. But I would like something good like paid software or with a free trail to keep my computer clean and running at best with easy click or so or to repair a problem also if one comes up. Does anyone tell me of a good software that will keep my computer running at best. I do know  regisary is nothing to play with. I seen CCleaner but whats really good out there anyone?

Has an all in one repair for if you are having particular issues... but as to tuning up?

 

It's a computer, not a car...data doesn't blow gaskets. CCleaner is enough, actually very good.

 

edit: tuneup utilities are generally either fakeware, junkware or malware.

 

edit edit: running a defrag every now and then might assist a little. Defraggler (by the same company as CCleaner) is a cool GUI. Does the same as Windows defrag in essence though.

I recommend that you set up CCleaner to automatically delete junk files etc. each time you boot up. I have been doing this for years. CCleaner is the only product that will do this automatically.

Don't forget to not use the registry feature of Ccleaner which is the same of any other registry software found online. See also Ccleaner Settings.

Another note about Ccleaner...is that the default settings will result in deletion of any dump files which may be created.  Those files are more useful when troubleshooting BSOD errors...than any other tool.  Deleting them is not smart at all.
