  • Five Best Windows Maintenance Tools

    Thought I would post this not only for the article, but the comments after it as well. They list the CCleaner that all of us here love, as well as a bunch of others.

    They also list 2 defrag programs, and even more in the comments. They chose the 5 from a post yesterday where they asked everyone for their favs. There were a ton of responses of course, and you would not believe how many said CCleaner.

    I would suggest that FORMAT is the finest Windows Maintenance tool. At least once a year..Like changing the oil in your car...

      CCCleaner is a life saver on some days. :)

        I've always used CCleaner since I first found it over a year ago. Definitely works wonders.

          A bit like repainting your car every year if you live in road salt country.

          I don't think I've ever had to do a Linux re-install on a server system with a good package tracking system (in my case, Red Hat RPM). Things are highly modular and I know what files belong to what apps, so it's straightforward to rip a package completely out and re-install it without clobbering the whole OS.

            I do like that my RH9, FC3, FC5 and now FC9 webservers have never needed a reinstall. I get worried about the OS getting long in the tooth, so I build a new server - and the old one just keeps trucking along....


            BTW, I am going to add to the Macrium reflect thread, but I just got done restoring from a backup. I had it verify the 37gig image, reinstall, and then verify the restore of the 77gig install. - took 3 hours. (the verifications too 2hrs 15min.)

            If all else fails: "rm -rf /"

              I love CCleaner, and my buddy turned me on to XoftSpy for spyware cleaning. It isnt free, but its super fast and works very well. I am using it and love it!
