Hi, Can you please advise me on the best value for money PC cleanup software. I am currently using AVG PCtuneup 2011 and scan once a week. It seems to do an effective job, but I as there are numerous similar products on the market could you advise me which would be the best one for me to run on my desktop(Vista) and my laptop(7)

CC Cleaner is a free download and very well respected. However, a word of advice. Don't be tempted to run registry scans too often as there is a danger of deleting important registry files. If you do use this function make sure that you accept the option to back up registry files. Open a folder for this in My Documents and name each back up with the date. Have a read of this article which also has a link to the download.

In addition, should you suspect a problem with malware free Malwarebytes is an excellent programme. Read this article for information and a link to the download.
