I am not a very practical fellow by choice. It’s more out of necessity, and even then I am not all that practical. But I do know I hate clutter and a lack of organization. Then again, if I don’t deal with the clutter in my life, and maintain some level of organization, just who the heck is gonna do it for me?
It’s like cooking. If I want to eat well, I cook. And wash the damn dishes, and do the shopping. Otherwise I have to eat whatever anyone else bother to prepare.
Don’t you just hate that?
So I have to maintain my own computer, and for the same reasons. What I have here is not the most powerful machine in the whole wide world. In fact it’s probably eight or nine years old, which is ancient for a computer. But it works, as long as I keep the registry clean and the viruses and mal-ware out and the hard drive defragged.
I use Advanced System Care by IObit. For the first few months I had it installed I used the ‘dumbed down’ version, which, by the way, is far from dumb. It is in fact downright amazing, for a free download. When you get around to paying for unlocking all of the features, it is one heck of a system utility. And boy, does it have a lot of tools.
www.IObit.com is the URL. Check these folks out. This is one place where you really get far more than your money is worth. Advance System Care should be on every home computer.
I already owned Registry Mechanic by PC Tools before I downloaded Advance System Care, and keep the license updated, so I do not use the registry cleaner in Advance System Care. But you can if you don’t already own another registry cleaner. I did use the IObit tool for a month or so, and it works very well. I am always hesitant when it comes to messing around with the Windows Registry, and you should be as well. But both of these tools create a system restore point before they go anywhere near the registry, and both of them work flawlessly.
I strongly recommend IObit and their products, and PC Tools Registry Mechanic as well.
