Which is the best software for my window7 ?

  charlsdevid 13:16 16 Jul 2010

I am looking for the best windows optimization software for my windows 7 laptop and desktop pc that can fix/clean registry, possibly be an improved defragmenter, general system cleanup, privacy cleanup and any other optimizations available.
thanks in advance.

Regisrty clean: I would stick to CCleaner - some are a bit too invasive.
RE defragging, I use Auslogics Disk Defrag. Quicker than the MS one. Some say Defrggler is more thorough, but is slower. Maybe have both and run defraggler less often.
I use:
Firewall ; PC Tools
Anti virus: Avira
Anti Malware:1 SpywareBlaster (hopefully prevents)
2 Superantispyware (sometimes fids stuff missed by:
3 Malawarebytes
Together with CCleaner, all the above are free and I like them
Others will prefer Avast as anti virus, or MS Security Essentials.
I used to have AVG but recently it and Zone Alarm (firewall) seem to have a bit of negative press.
Dont forget only one anti virus at a time.

Thanx john for ur valuable suggestions.
I used 2 applications which have all required utilities. tuneup utilities 2010 and Advanced System Optimizer 3.
I am quite happy with Advanced System Optimizer as compare with tuneup utilities. it has my tools integrated like System Cleaner, Privacy Cleaner, Registry Cleaner and Optimizer, Disk Defrager, Duplicate File Remover, Backup Manager, Disk Explorer, Data recovery tool like undelete and many more.
I like its user friendly UI and functionality.:)

Good luck. If it works for you, fine. I will remain with my stuff.
