I have been alerted to RegClean, Easy Cleaner both of which seem excellent; am too much of a novice at PCs to use file cleaners that ask me to make many decisions about files (particularly the registry).
have Ashampoo which I was told with one click will clean the whole computer. I realize there are no programs that do everything, but have yet to find supportive file clean programs that I can handle. Did find a program called Smart Cleaner (French program I believe from Scaramouch) which deletes many files and does not ask the user to make too many decisions. It also claims it will not delete any needed files if the user should make a mistake.
Computer protected with Spybot, Adaware (Lavasoft), Spywareblaster and Spyguard.
I almost daily
1 - use ?Internet Options? to delete cookies, temp files, internet files
2 ? do a disk cleanup
3 ? keep the recycle bin empty
4 ? delete documents cache
5 ? update Panda antivirus program
6 ? run the Spybot, Adaware, Spywareblaster programs and update same
upon submitting a tasklist to a tech on a forum on Cnet, he felt that it was far too busy, might contain a bug, and need cleaning.
Have investigated several sites to submit this list to for help, but the sites either no longer do highjacklist cleaning, or were not operative, or I had such difficulty registering to the point I gave up.
Can?t win for losing.
Can recommend registry cleaner I can handle
Can recommend general PC file cleaner I can handle
Give advise about what to do about the compromised task list?
am I covered and doing enough to ensure
good/protective PC use and gaming capabilities?
Hope I have not overwhelmed this post with too many questions?
