A secret to keeping your computer smoothly is to perform regular maintenance on your computer. Last week we covered ten tools to defragment your hard disk. Besides defragmenting, you should regularly clean all temporary files. Cleaning all these files manually can be quite a pain. So, here are some tools that can assist you to do so.

CCleaner

CCleaner

CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning 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. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner.

CleanUp!

CleanUp! is a powerful and easy-to-use application that removes temporary files created while surfing the web, empties the Recycle Bin, deletes files from your temporary folders and more.

CleanUp! frees disk space and reduces the “clutter” on your computer helping it to run more efficiently. It also can be used as a way to protect your privacy on the Internet. You can even instruct CleanUp! to securely delete files making it impossible to retrieve their contents using lower-level disk tools – just another way of protecting your privacy.

CleanMem

Besides cleaning out the junk files, it is always useful to free up memory at regular intervals while your computer is running.

The CleanMem application was designed to be a very simple to operate as it will run and clean the memory out of all processes it can, without any user input.

RegScanner

RegScanner is a small utility that allows you to scan the Registry, find the desired Registry values that match to the specified search criteria, and display them in one list. After finding the Registry values, you can easily jump to the right value in RegEdit, simply by double-clicking the desired Registry item. You can also export the found Registry values into a .reg file that can be used in RegEdit.

Startup Control Panel

Your computer startup time can be speeded up a good deal by preventing programs from starting automatically with your computer starting up.

Startup Control Panel is a nifty control panel applet that allows you to easily configure which programs run when your computer starts. You can choose to remove programs from startup, thus reducing your computer startup time.

Tool Tuesday: Lorem Ipsum Generator

If you’re familiar with free templates, or have been working in the printing industry you would have come across this text often: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Lorem Ipsum or Lipsum, as it is more popularly known as, is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. The text can crossed over from the print world and has landed into the electronic world and is now used by several designers for layout purposes.

The purpose of Lipsum is to distract the reader from the text and focus on the layout. It also helps to fill the layout with content instead of generating your content from scratch.

There are several lipsum generators available, but the most popular of this is the one at Lipsum.org

The generator uses over 200 Latin words to generate content. It can generate paragraphs, words, bytes or lists of content to save you from doing the manual labor.

And if you do use the generator often, do consider a donation to the Webmaster.

Tool Tuesday: IObit SmartDefrag

As you continue to use your PC, the files get defragmented. The more the defragmentation, the longer it takes time for your operating system to fetch the files resulting in decreased performance. Windows comes with an inbuilt defragmenter which you should run regularly to keep defragmentation levels low.

As you continue to use your PC, the files get defragmented. The more the defragmentation, the longer it takes time for your operating system to fetch the files resulting in decreased performance.

Windows comes with an inbuilt defragmenter which you should run regularly to keep defragmentation levels low. However, the higher the defragmentation the longer it takes to complete this process.

I once spent four days to defragment my 120GB partition and realized that this method is a sheer waste of time!

This process would have repeated if Carol hadn’t pointed me to IObit SmartDefrag.

IObit SmartDefrag

IObit SmartDefrag helps defrag your hard drive most efficiently. With “Install it and forget it” feature, IObit SmartDefrag works automatically and quietly in the background on your PC, keeping your hard disk running at its speediest.

I’ve said it once and will say it again. I love freeware 🙂 and that is what IObit SmartDefrag is.
