I have had my pc for three years and at this moment is running slow. I've done everything possible to fix this problem. All except cleaning my pc's registry. These past 3 years I have installed and uninstall countless of programs. So, I'm thinking that all of the leftovers are affecting my pc. I've read that this could solve a problem like mine. My question is, can anybody recommend a free scanner & cleaner?

Thank You

Hello rigs Welcome to Geeks to Go!
I wouldn't recommend anybody to get a Registry Cleaner. They do more harm than good. It's also not true how having old registries clutter and slow your PC...It's actually a pretty big myth. Anyhow, you should read this BLOG written by one of Geeks to Go experts.

As for your slow PC you could read this Tutorial It's pretty good at explaining some steps that can be taken to resolve the slowness issue.

I personally recommend downloading ATF-Cleaner This is an excellent tool that cleans temp files, java cache, cookies, recycling bin, etc...

I hope this info helps you to speed up your PC. I wish you the best of luck. :)

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- installed security programs (antivirus, firewall)
