Best utility for tuning up PC

Hi

I am looking for a safe and a reliable utility to tune up a PC. I prefer something commercial to get the support from the vendor.

In the past I have seen lots of tools like this but not certain and weary as these are often accompanied by viruses/spyware/malware

Regards

Yamin

Use Process Explorer http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx to see details on what resources a particular program is using.  DiskMon http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896646 will let you monitor any disk access to help identify excessive I/O activity.

Extra RAM and regular defragmentation will also improve performance of any PC. You may also want look at CCleaner (www.piriform.com/CCLEANER) for clearing out junk files from the computer. I install this freebie on all my clients computers.

Hi

I have been using CC Cleaner for a while - its not bad. Going through the various forums, there seems to be consensus to avoid these tools and stick to what Windows is offering.

Hi

Where is "Action Center" and by memory diagnostic tool, do you mean SFC only?

If you are using Vista or Windows 7, just type "Action Center" in the search box.

If you are still working on windows XP machines BOOTVIS is a system startup analyzer and performance tuner. I have seen good gains in performance using this tool.

personally, i never saw any PC run better after using any "tune up" utility
better look for solutions for the problems you have
so  - here my question : WHY do you need a tune up util ?  what is not running as it should?

There is a way to speed up the boot time of a PC without any utility installed.

Click "Start" > "Run" > type "msconfig" > click "Startup" Tab > unchecked the software that you prefer the computer only load it when you want to use (this will speed up the boot up / start up time of the PC)
