I would use one tool for one purpose .

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner: for disk cleanup and registry cleaning
http://www.piriform.com/defraggler : for defragging - works also on servers!
http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ : as antivirus solution (not for servers though)

On demand one or the other rootkitscanner / malware detectors - pick your poison.

CCleaner and defraggler, virusscans  can be scheduled so you only have to check monthly for malware with the on demand scanners.
