A lot can be done withinn windows, with out any other software.

Start, Run, type msconfig. Disable any start up programs you don't need

Defrag regularly, chkdsk regularly

Also, a lot of windows services are unneeded, depending on what you;re using your PC for.

The only other additional software I use are:


And I also disable most of the visual effects within XP via control panel, performance and maintenance

Ccleaner is the best i'd say for removing junk files, i love the registry thingy on it too... Auslogics if u dont want to pay for the Diskeeper which i personally think is the best defragging tool, but Auslogics works really great too..

Other programs are

AVG free edition
Auslogics Disk Defrag
Auslogics Registry Defrag
Your Uninstaller!
Adaware free edition
