I am planning on purchasing some programs and I am looking for the best. I will list what types of programs I am seeking so that you know. I already have an antivirus (Trend Micro) and antispyware (Spy Sweeper along with Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware and SpywareBlaster).

Registry Cleaner - Tp remove invalid entries and correct entries that are wrong.
Registry Defragmenter - To defragment my registry for performance purposes.
Disk Cleaner - To remove uneeded files, including those that pose a privacy threat.
Defragmenter - To defragment my hard drive for performance purposes.

I know there are free programs that do these functions but I want the best that requires purchasing. Unless a free program (that is not a trial) can do as good, or even better than the programs that can be bought, I don't want it listed. Thank you for your time and energy in helping me.

TuneUp Utilities 2007 is pretty effective at doing what you're after...and at a very reasonable price.

You should also look at NOD32 for AV if you are after the best.

TuneUp Utilities can be downloaded as a trial version. Couldn't I just re-download it each time the trial version expires and use the next 30 days? If not, that is fine. Also, are there any other package programs like TuneUp Utilities that are also good? If not, any suggestions for just a single program for each of the procedures I listed?

Tuneup Utilities is a really nice program. I tried it after seeing it here. I am usually against "buying" cleaning programs, but I couldn't resist this one. The program does not expire after 30 days. It has a timer that keeps running and you have to wait to still use it. Its a pain waiting all those seconds and minutes though.
I procrastinated on buying it, then received a coupon offering $10.00 off.

Have you tried CCleaner
