Many PC users say they haven’t got enough space on their system partition, having installed only the required applications: browser, office suite, photo editing software, multimedia player and antivirus. In addition to lack of space, another drawback is the fact that: "Windows is being slow."
It is very likely that you are familiar with the causes, but I’ll mention a few:
- the presence of viruses or other malicious software (spyware, bloatware, crapware);
- registers loaded with useless information;
- numerous applications in start-up;
- temporary files scattered on your hard disk and files browser cache.
And we all know that these problems won’t solve by themselves, because Windows does not integrate another "authority" to cleanse the system automatically and especially effective. And tools provided (e.g. Disk Cleaner) are also not too obsolete.
There are some applications that are very good at cleaning a hard disk, freeing up unnecessary occupied space and deleting unnecessary registry data. Some also resolve a number of malwares and Trojans. Here are three of the best:-
CCleaner has become a very popular application for its simplicity and effectiveness. Furthermore, is free.
The “loose” interface provides us with some effective weapons that can operate with a single click: cleaning temporary files, cache, cookies and other specific browser elements, cleaning registry, startup configuration and uninstalling applications.
For a thorough control of information which must be deleted, you can check or uncheck the boxes associated to integral part of various sections (browser, explorer, system registry). If you do not want to risk deleting certain data, you can opt for a back-up before the application to execute tasks.
IObit Advanced SystemCare
On the operability part, IObit also solved certain issues related to malware, while having a seemingly simplistic interface it hides a lot of options dedicated to users who are more experienced with Windows. And yet, we recommend using with trust the setting "default" and the scan button, simply because the application does its job very well without user intervention regarding the advanced options.
IObit Advanced SystemCare is a free system optimizer. It doesn’t contain advertisements, links and recommendations to the various boxes of software.
TuneUp Utilities is the largest and at the same time the most well-known optimizing application. Includes the top FTA "one click maintenance" (solves problems with a single click) and advanced customization options.
The application allows debris removal and temporary files left behind by uninstalled applications, and disables Windows components that are not absolutely necessary, thus improving performance by reducing memory consumption.
In addition to IObit and CCleaner, TuneUp comes with a range of options aimed at the Windows interface, including the login screen.
The biggest disadvantage, so to speak, is the price we must pay – about $ 50. If you would like to see what it is capable of, you may try a 15 days free trial.
Finally, I will point out that I limited myself to these three applications simply because they are tested and recognized as safe. Obviously, there are more such applications out there, and only if you know others do not hesitate to tell us. But keep in mind that Internet hosts hundreds of software "traps" as a recommended system utility.
