Preserving your system clean to get the most out of it is more than a one-time job and you should perform it regularly in order to keep your computer in top-notch shape. Since doing all the related tasks manually can be a real hassle, you can opt for one of the many software solutions that can help you in this regard.
WinUtilities Professional Edition is one of the names on the list and it seems to include exactly the things you'll need when trying to clean up the PC and optimize it for the best performance.
The application has an rather nice looking interface, with every feature neatly organized. Clicking on each of them opens a new window in which you're prompted to select the drives or the elements you wish to be scanned either for fixing issues or for improving certain settings.
Besides the main clean and repair operations, WinUtilities Professional Edition is also capable of optimizing the system for greater performance, enhancing privacy and security, controlling windows and folders, working with the Windows registry and scheduling tasks.
One of the most useful features in the whole package is the '1-Click Maintenance'. This one includes most of the enhancements that can be done on your computer, such as cleaning Internet cookies or temporary files, Recycle Bin entries, removing junk data and fixing invalid registry entries.
Performing the optimizations and tweaks takes very little time, as we found out during our tests. The improvements make the system a bit faster, but don't expect miracles to happen; if the system was already kept in decent condition, the optimizations will be marginally noticeable.
All things considered, WinUtilities Professional Edition is one of the optimization tools that really have a positive impact on the PC and can actually help you clean the computer. The huge list of tools it comes with make it suitable to server many purposes and thanks to its great ease of use, this software appeals to beginners and power users alike.
