I'm looking for a PC utility program (or programs) that will work in Windows XP and:
*Tell me what processes are running, what they're for, where they came from, and stop them or uninstall them as necessary (note I already have Anti-Virus, etc., and am mainly looking for misc. Windows processes and programs I installed and no longer use)
*Maintain the hard disk
*Maintain/optimize the registry and any other aspects of the system that needs it
*Be easy to download, install, and run and not take up minimal system resources (I'm willing to pay for this program as long as the price is worth it)
I saw some bad reviews of System Mechanic 7, and was also looking at PC Pitstop, but don't know how good that is. Any suggestions??
