Three Must Have Free System Tools

I’m always on the lookout for system utilities to improve my system performance, (I run various operating systems, including XP Pro and Win 7 RC), and protecting my privacy is a major concern for me, both on and off, the Internet.

Even though I have tested a fairly large number of free system utilities, over the years, that offer to improve system performance and help maintain privacy, I always find myself coming back to these veteran applications.

It’s just hard to beat perfection, and in my view the following free applications are as close to perfect at their assigned tasks, as a free program can be.

If you have an application you rely on, and you think it can outperform any of the following, I’d be glad to hear about it – so please let me know.

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. But the best part is that it’s fast; normally taking less than a second to run.

Revo Uninstaller is a superior program to uninstall programs from your computer. This free program with its advanced and fast algorithm scans before, and after you uninstall an application. After the program’s regular uninstaller runs, you can remove additional unnecessary files, folders and registry keys that are usually left over on your computer. This feature is a definite plus.

Glary Utilities – All-in-One Free System Tool

image Glary Utilities, a free all-in-one utility, is a wonderful collection of system tools and utilities to fix, speed up, maintain and protect your PC.

A great deal of personal experience with this  terrific application has convinced me, that a typical user, particularly a new user, will really benefit by having this application on their system.

With this free program you can tweak, repair, optimize and improve your system’s performance; and its ease of operation makes it ideal for less experienced users.

You can quickly find the tool you’re looking for: disk cleaner, uninstall manager, secure file deletion, memory optimizer, registry cleaner, duplicate file finder, tracks eraser, empty folder finder; a very convenient feature for those of us who like to test drive new software.

Prior to making important changes to your system, Glary Utilities creates a backup copy first, a very important feature.

A quick piece of advice: never allow an application to make system changes without creating a system restore point first.

As well, you can manage and delete browser add-ons, analyze disk space usage, find, fix, or remove broken Windows shortcuts, and manage startup programs.

A one click maintenance solution is included, but I’m not a fan of this since I like to be much more hands on. But less experienced users, might find this feature ideal.

This is one of my favorite programs, and I highly recommend it.
