Well, I am not a big fan of frequent defragging. Unless you regularly install and uninstall major applications, regular defragging is just not necessary. The exception, however, is if free disk space is at a premium. In that case, weekly or monthly defragging may help, BUT that is only a band-aid fix and the real solution is to buy a bigger drive, or add a second drive and move your applications to it.

Purging your system of clutter can be done weekly. Some folks do it daily. I would suggest getting CCleaner Slim Version for that. The slim version is the same as the full, it just does not try to shove extra tool bars on you. Before first use, go to Options > Settings > Advanced and ensure Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 24 hours is unchecked. What is nice about CCleaner is you can select which cookies you want to keep - so for example, if you select geekstogo.com, you will not have to keep entering your login credentials each time after running it.
