TuneUp Utilities 2007

I have previously tested earlier versions of the TuneUp Utilities suite, and has been impressed with the quality of the tools included.

The 2007 version of TuneUp Utilities was recently made available for free. What you'll get is a nice package which includes a settings tweaker, startup manager, disk cleaner, hard disk scanner, disk space usage analyser, registry cleaner, and file recovery tool to get back deleted documents.

The tools work as described, with simple, intuitive interfaces. The registry cleaner reported a total of 729 "problems" on my system. However, as with all registry cleaners, care is to be taken before clicking the "Start Cleaning" button. It turned out that most of the problems reported were linked to uninstalled software anddeleted/moved documents. The RescueCentre backs up changes made to your system in case of any problems.

If you need an integrated solution to perform some tuning and cleaning up of your PC, you won't go wrong with this excellent piece of software. 

Also check out the 2009 version, which adds a drive defragmenter and other improvements.
