To keep my pc tuned up and fast, I use Ccleaner and Auslogics Boostspeed. These 2 programs have many features to tune up my pc, such as, cleaning out temp files, disk defrag, registry defrag, ram defrag, and many other tools. I also try to limit the number of programs that start at boot. This is how I keep my pc nice and fast.

To tune up my PC, I use a registry cleaner program, a hard disk defragmenter, a startup programs editor..

I use CCleaner (recycle bin context) to weed out junk files, a weekly deep scan of my entire PC (including USB drives) with MSE & Revo Uninstaller for clearing up the aftermath of program uninstallations. Defragging is done with Windows' built in tool.
I tend to shy away from registry cleaners (including CCleaners) as i feel in the long term, they'll end up causing you problems, and for the most-part, it's a placebo effect anyway.

I also keep a close eye on my startup programs (msconfig) as these have a massive effect on start up times.

i CURRENTLY USE TUNE UP UTILITIES 2009 and tune up my PC as a hobby.

Defragmentation, and cleaning up unnecessary files in the C: drive of my windows are the basic needs.
Other than that it also gives you options to optimise your computer's performance by changing various display settings and unnecessary animations..
I keep minimum no of programs in startup so that the boot is fast (and it IS actually fast for a vista). for that i use msconfig and tune up utilities..

Hi guys, I use these tools and have been for awhile now.

Microsoft security essentials - http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

Ccleaner - http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

Defraggler - http://www.piriform.com/defraggler

Ad-aware - http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php

Spybot S&D - http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

Everestultimate - http://www.lavalys.com/products.php?lang=en&page=11 The free edition is here: http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=4181

ProcessExplorer - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysi ... fault.aspx
Security Task Manager - http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/index.html

There are other tools I use, but these are the ones I use most.
All are free except Everest Ultimate, but the home edition is. Also Security Task Manager is a trial but still is a good tool to identify unwanted processes in your system when doing spyware removal.

Take it easy
