1. One is Advanced Windows Care.
2. I agree to stay away from Norton (both costly and a resource hog)
3. Easy Cleaner is a good safe registry cleaner, and unnecessary files removal program.
4. Basic cleanup maintenance.
Pick and choose what works best on your computer.

To clean your temp folder, recycle bin, index.dat files etc..please download this free tool...
Don't install any Toolbars, or other programs, should it ask you!Just
uncheck the option of installing the Yahoo toolbar....if you get
the slim version it does not have the toolbar
thats the one I recommend...
It will put a shortcut on your Desktop.
Before first use...
Select Options then Advanced.
UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"
The rest of the standard settings are fine...
Click on CCleaner to start it. Then click "Run Cleaner"
DO NOT USE ANY OF THE OTHER TOOLS...RUNNING THEM MAY CAUSE OTHER PROBLEMS
