Choose Your Favorite System Utilities Program
Where's FDISK? Maintenance means different thing's to different people.
TU2006. The best.
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.
~~Be ALERT!!! ~~
I am sure all of the above mentioned are for sale and w a good price tags...
I only uses freewares... They can do almost the same job w their own specialities.
i liked system mechanic 3.x but its gotten progessively worse since. now i stick to tuneup utilities and ccleaner.
Don't need them. ShadowUser will take care of it and alot more ...
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.
Another vote for TuneUp Utilities
Ace for more than a year, and very happy with it
I am trialing Tune Up Utilities 2006 now, today they sent me an ofer to sell me a licence for USD 24.99 till december 31, I will have to take them up on their offer. I would Buy it anyway, Its a great program.
Ace Utilities. Indispensible.
Using Fix-It right now. Tuneup Utilities would be my 2nd choice.
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.
