The best free software ?

  sunways 19:32 22 Mar 2009

It is time to cut my bills, and stop paying for software. So with all the free software out there what is worth using. I have just gone over to AVAST, so far so good, but what about replacing registry mechanic (pc tools). They only software i am still paying for is spyware doctor (again pc tools) it is very good. can this be replaced for free ? Anything else i may need to keep my pc running clean and free....

Hi taff, appreciate all of the above, what i really require is a registy cleaner. Are any of the free ones worth having ?...
