Windows has a dirty habit of leaving traces of crap all over your hard drive. In order to keep Windows operating in peak shape, it is necessary to periodically go in and remove temporary files, browser cache, outdated registry entries, etc. My favorite way of doing this is by using CCleaner. CCleaner is free and works quite well, allowing you to:

  • Clean cache, history, cookies and other crap from Internet Explorer, Firefox or Opera
  • Cleans out temp files, the recycle bin, log files, document history, etc from Windows
  • Cleans out temp files left behind by third-party applications
  • Scans and cleans your registry of unused or old entries (and I\’ve never had it screw up on me)

Download this application and run it to clean out Windows.
