I don't use any but CCLEANER and even then I just use it's file cleaner in the stock settings.
Most folk are unaware that as the drive fills, it slows so that's no secret. Also as folk add more security the system slows so none of those titles can fix that.
I've seen too many posts pleading for help on fixing what those titles do so only do this if you are ready for a complete system failure.
But why the 32 bit OS choice? Today I just toss the 64 bit on since many apps and the OS can then use more than the usual 2.0GB RAM.
I'm sure this topic has come up before, so please excuse the new post. But I need help here!
In short, my PC seems to be getting slower and slower. About once every day or 2, it literally becomes unusably slow until I shut everything down and restart it. This process alone can take 10-15 minutes. Ugh!
I've been a fan of CCleaner for a long time and it seems to work well. I'm pretty careful with keeping things defragged, virus clean and not running too much at once. But something is not right...
I have recently installed a fully registered version of iOBit's Advanced System Care 6. It has "Speed Boost" and "Smart RAM" and all these other utilities, but nothing seems to make much difference. Any informed opinions on Glary Utilities or others that might help.
My sys info is below. I'm using this machine at work for not much more than Office apps and Chrome.
Windows 7 Pro SP1
Intel Core i5 @2.4GHz
RAM: 4 GM (2.92 usable)
250GB HD about half empty
Thanks for your wisdom!
