Doing a simple search on the Internet for Computer Clean Up Software yields dozens of programs, some freeware, some shareware and others commercially available. But what is best for your machine? Trying to decipher the myriad of choice can be an arduous task. Maybe you go with one recommended by a friend or colleague. There are also reviews online touting one product over another. The key is to find out what works with your particular machine that fits your price range.

Now there are some things that you can do to help clean up your computer. If you are computer savvy, chances are that you will be able to successfully remove some of the malware that affects your machine. However most experts draw the line against trying to optimize the registry by yourself. This heartbeat of the PC is responsible for all of the programs and how they are inter-linked. Making a mistake here can result in a system crash with the dreaded Windows “Blue Screen of Death” making an infamous appearance. You don't want to mess with the registry.

When considering a Software program to help clean up your computer, find out if it does a deep scan of the registry, removing all links from deleted programs, leftover DLL files and corrupted entries that are no longer needed. By performing tasks such as these, the registry is free to function on what is important on your computer — the operating system. A good registry cleaner will make the computer function like it is brand new.

A final consideration is the price. There are many programs designed to clean up the computer, but remember the old axiom: You get what you pay for. This doesn't mean that the most expensive is the best, but rather a rule of thumb when considering all of the factors that help you to make a decision.

Good Luck.
