MISCELLANEOUS CLEANING TOOLS
And finally, here are a couple of useful applications that you might not have thought of.
You've been a good boy or girl, and you regularly update your system's drivers. In theory, that should keep your system in tip-top shape and running at peak performance. But there's a downside as well: If you don't properly remove your old drivers, they can cause system instability, slowdowns, hardware woes, and system crashes.
Driver Sweeper to the rescue. This clever little utility does exactly what it says. It sweeps through your system, finds old drivers, and then lets you remove them. For safety's sake, it backs them up as well, so that you can restore them, if need be.
Finally, here's a way, not to get your PC cleaner, but to help keep the earth cleaner. This clever little freebie helps you save electricity when using your PC, and in that way makes your PC contribute less to global warming. It will also cut your energy bills as well.
The program fine-tunes your power settings, so as to automatically turn off your monitor, spin down your hard disks, and put your PC into hibernation. You can easily edit the settings; you're not stuck with the defaults. The program will also show you how much energy you've saved, and how many trees, gallons of oil, or kilowatt hours you've saved as well.
