    Basically, I was wondering if there was any programs out there that cleaned up the PC, such as removing useless programs installed, freeing up some room

    Thanks [​IMG]

    You have to know which programs to remove though, basically if you don't know it, Google it. It may be important none the less.

    +1 for TuneUp.

    If it's running slow you can also try defragging your hard drive.

    only problem with CCleaner (and other automated ones for that matter) is that they have no way of knowing what registry entries to delete.
    go with asquared and use ccleaner just for tempory files.
