Hey guy's. I'm looking for a cleaner to run. I use CCleaner now,but I just don't think it's getting it all. I have a Toshiba Skullcandy about a year old and it just seems slower than it should be. I notice delays and small things that just seem like they should be better. About 2 years ago someone posted a couple of links that were really helpfull on my old computer. Like i said,CC is good i think for the basic weekly sweep,but i think i need something that digs just a little deeper. Any one have a name or a clean download for me? As always any help is awesome.

Hi there,

For general cleaning I think CCleaner is good enough. Anything that goes deeper should be used with extreme caution, or not at all (especially registry cleaners - never use those!).

A slow computer can be caused by a lot of reasons, not only trash files. Malware infections can cause slowdowns, Potentially Unwanted Programs (toolbars, adware etc.) can clutter up your resources, or even a failing hard drive - but since the machine is only a year old I doubt it.

If you want a checkup for malware, post in Am I Infected. A first responder will check your machine for possible infections, and if necessary refer you to elevated help.

Regards,
Alex

I am in agreement with Alex.

However, if you are adamant, here is a list of other Disk Cleanup Tools.
