As stated in other posts, I'm an owner of a new PC with Windows 10. Learning my way around things I found my way to disc optimization, which I believe is disc defragment. My setting show as set to optimize C drive weekly. If this is correct, is there really no need for me to consider installing a disc defragment program such as Auslogic to keep my hard drive optimized?

There is no need to install disc defragmenters/optimizers under Windows 10.  Additional programs, such as CCleaner, that hunt for orphan temporary files and the like can be useful to keep your disc free of junk and only need be run occasionally.  Do not use the registry cleaner feature of CCleaner or any other registry cleaner/optimizer product - there is no evidence that they help and the potential for unintended harm makes them not worth the risk.

Thanks Brian. I have always used CCleaner for temp file removal only, never for registry ANYTHING, or any other registry related software. Thanks for the reply.
