    Don't need any. (where is the "none" option to vote for)

    C:\ is locked down by Deep Freeze so nothing needs maintaining, since it's restored to previous state on reboot.

    I use both Fix-It and Ace. Fix-it has been a mainstay on my computer since 1997, back when it was owned by Ontrack.

    How come you don't have an "other" option?

    I use a free selection of tools:

    CCleaner: CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history.

    Eraser: an advanced security tool (for Windows), which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns.

    ERUNT: Registry Backup and Restore for Windows NT/2000/2003/XP.

    MyUninstaller: MyUninstaller is an alternative utility to the standard Add/Remove applet of Windows operating system.

    NTREGOPT: Registry Optimization for Windows NT/2000/2003/XP.

    PageDefrag: defragment paging files and Registry hives.

    RegSeeker: a powerful registry cleaner and can display various informations like your startup entries, several histories (even index.dat files), installed applications and much more ! With RegSeeker you can search for any item inside your registry, export/delete the results, open them in the registry. RegSeeker also includes a tweaks panel to optimize your OS ! Now RegSeeker includes a file tool to search for duplicate files, bad shortcuts and more !

    And of course windows native chkdsk and defrag.
