I use CCleaner regularly and it is pretty good but ... after it's done it's job, I then use a disk defragger (PerfectDisk) to maximize disk access speeds.
Piriform.com also has a free defragger called defraggler. It is slow but thorough. Try the free disk defrag from auslogics.com for a quick defrag; good enough for most days but really quick.
When using an SSD don't defrag; it's turned off by default for a reason.
I installed Disk Max and got a steady stream of malware and crapware offers. I said no to all, but most installed anyway. It took me 30 minutes to find and remove all of them, especially delta-search, which required manual registry editing. Ccleaner has served me well for several years and has never removed anything which caused a crash. Auslogics,com lists two freebies, disk defrag and registry cleaner which also have served me well over time. And thanks for the article, Jack. I think I am going to like bleach bit.
I'm the author of DiskMax and I can guarantee that if you've downloaded DiskMax from my personal website, there is absolutely nothing of any sort bundled with it. If you've downloaded it from elsewhere, please let me know where. Thanks.
This product not only cleans the junk windows accumulate through the application cache, browsing cache, temporary files and folders created by browsing, applications etc, registry entries etc. It also helps you to gain back disk space and speeds up your machine.
