Windows 10 Tune up utils?
What do others recommend using as the best Windows 10 tune up/optimiser utility?
I'm currently using Boostspeed but wondered what others were using and why?
the vast majority of tune-up utilities are low grade snake oil
None. They promise more than they actually do, is my experience.
CCleaner as a basic tool, some Windows commands for cleanup and a few tweaks collected on the internet.
Then I use those: Wise Disk Cleaner, Wise Program Uninstaller, Wise Registry Cleaner.
TCP Optimizer to keep network running smoothly and without lagging.
And lastly Driver Easy to make sure, I am not missing any drivers.
I recommend Autoruns (see Autoruns for Windows) to check what 3rd party programs, services and drivers are loaded on startup. I expect you will find a lot of bloatware which can be safely disabled resulting in performance and reliability improvements. I also use CCleaner to remove temporary files and similar and to delete unneeded restore points.
I can recommend ccleaner. Been using it for years. You need to go through the options it provides and disable the items you don't wan't cleaning.
