Cleaning Up My System

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was hoping for some suggestions,I was wondering if these system cleaners were worth buying, example System Mechanic, PC Tools etc etc, they also say they will not only will they clean but also speed up you're computer, I'm sure my PC has clutter that Windows will not clean out, does anyone know much about these sytem cleaners and are they safe to use, and if so can anyone maybe suggest a good one, I hope you can help and thanks alot.

To keep everything organized after you clean it out, use Diskeeper.
