Cleaners

I do use CC cleaner but would like to go a bit further. Is there a cleaner free or paid which goes deeper but can be trusted. Usually they tell you you have thousands of problems which they will fix if you pay. Dont mind paying but dont want to go off following red herrings. Win 7 64bit IE9

Thanks

If you mean registry cleaners, then I would stick to CCleaner. Others can cause more trouble than the small improvement they give in terms of space savings.

Imagine you are a National Trust volunteer about to clean delicate china and artifacts.....you are wearing white gloves and have a feather duster at hand. Now would you want to clean these items with a power washer???????

From a bad experience with so called "cleaners" stick with CC Cleaner and feel confident that this programme is doing a thorough job at keeping your rig clean.
