Cleaner

mkrisa32
I am looking for an excellent cleaner for windows that is like norton systemworks. Something that cleans file errors, window errors, active x errors, etc. It would be great if it was a moblie app.
Thanks for any help.

    So, you will need to find multiple apps or suites to cover this. I'm not sure every single bit will be portable.

    File errors - every Windows installation has chkdsk.
    (In general, you might want to review help/resource kits for a list and explanation of all the native Windows utilities. You may be surprised as to what is there.)

    Registry clean/repair: There are a lot of these. The ones closer to WinDoctor in potential aggressiveness and flexibility tend to cost money. http://www.macecraft.com/ is a good example. A "safer" type of registry cleaner is CCleaner, which indeed can be portable, also has other functions.

    Defragmenter. Again, loads of these. Windows comes with its own as well.

    A bunch of other functions can be covered by the excellent utilities at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb545027.aspx - look at Autoruns and Process Explorer, for example.
