:tazz: There are lots of programs advertised on this site and on the internet generally, such as "PC Pitstop", or "FixComputerErrors". I am quite prepared to pay for one because I do not know enough to edit my Registry or optimise my Memory. But which one? I have downloaded free diagnostics from several. All find errors they can fix or memory use they can improve, if I pay, but they all find different numbers of problems, ranging from about 100 to over 600. Now I do not know much, but I know they cannot all be right! My question is, assuming these programs are useful in principle, (and I know some people question that anyway) has anyone had a good experience with any of these programs?

The Trial of Tune Up is functional, if it finds anything, it will deal with it, memory optimization doesn't have a big advantage over rebooting

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then also from system tools, run disc defragmenter

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm then reboot.

Download, install and run
Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
