Spring cleaning is just around the corner. Like your residence, your computer can become cluttered without occasional cleaning.
Fortunately, cleaning up your computer is much less work than cleaning a house or apartment. In fact, there are programs that make it nearly automatic. The best part is that they're free!
PC Decrapifier - Manufacturers often install trial programs and other "extras" on new computers. For the most part, this bloatware just slows down the system until it's removed.
If you have a new computer, or you never removed the bloatware from your older computer, you can get a quick speed boost by running this program. It automatically detects programs you probably don't want and uninstalls them quickly.
CCleaner - Anything you do on your computer leaves a trace somewhere. These can be small registry entries, a full browser history or multi-gigabyte temporary files.
Not only do these take up space, they can reveal sensitive information to snoopers. This program cleans out these traces with the click of a button. Plus, it includes a powerful program uninstaller and registry cleaner.
