Hi, (First post here)


In the dark distant past i used several after market software programs to maintain my windows OS (think software up date searchers, and registry cleaners) My main source for these was WinZip.  Now in the modern era, do I still need to perform these functions, and if so, what should I use?

Hi Jerry


Welcome to Bleeping Computer


Registry cleaners are not recommended for use because they do more harm then good but to answer your question its based on your preference


I used




Ccleaner (not registry portion)

Defraggler (If you use SSD you should not use Defragment) 


From time to time I run spot scans
