I'm trying to decide on which of 3 programs I'm going to keep that are currently on my computer, because I don't know enough about any of them. I've read Ashraf's reviews of them, but still am unsure.
So I'd like to know what you think and why you think that. Maybe somebody will say something that'll help me make up my mind.
First of all, I'm using a Tosshiba Satellite laptop with 4GB ram and 500GB memory. It's running Windows 7, 64-bit.
The programs I'm wondering about are WinUtilities Professional Edition V9.58, Glary Utilities PRO (v18.104.22.1683), and Advanced SystemCare PRO Ver 3.5.1.
My biggest concern is the registry cleaners. I worry about trusting a program I don't know about to mess with my registry.
I also, at this point, plan to use TuneUp Utilities 2010 as soon as I can win a license or find it free somewhere. Simply because I used 2007 (or 2008) and then 2009 when it was made available for free as reported on dotTech. I trust TuneUp Utilities. It's that simple. Of course, if I end up liking and trusting one of these other programs more, I may not go back to TuneUp Utilities at all.
So if you don't mind, please take a minute and pass along your thoughts and opinions about this.
I guess I just thought that it might be like it is with anti-virus programs where more than one or two isn't good.
But if it doesn't matter, I might as well keep them all and continue using them to make up my mind that way.
I have all of them on my pc as well. If you don't need the HD space, why bother removing them?
I am glad you said that I have multiple utilities also, but only one running in the background.
I try not to have too many start up programs. Guess I could use some help as to what is good to have in start up.
Right now I have Key scramble, winpatrol avast mementos (which I love)
I do not have a space or memory issue. It would be good to know what is worth having in startup.
@Wheezer I trust TuneUp Utilities.
Trust is the criteria I use to make a decision on anything, be SW, clothes, cars, and SOs.
Oh, no, Al. Ice cream.
How the heck does Ice cream keep creeping up in so many topics!!??!!
Hmmmmmmmm……….I wonder if B&J, Borden, Mayfield, etc. have joined forces & inserted subliminal messages throughout dotTech!!!!
Why….. they've already gotten to the 'top brass' (admins, ahem…….um,……like well, you know who) …….& even to Mr. Boss !!!!!!!!!!
Unfortunately, TU2009 won't run on Windows 7. That was by far my first choice and was the first program I tried to install after the firewall and anti-virus.
When you try to install it a window comes up that says it's not compatible with your OS.
I have starting up:
- Advanced SystemCare Pro
- Avast Pro
Installed I have:
No boot lags ( Win 7 Ult – 4Gb Ram ), no conflicts, no worries.
They're all good programs. So like Karen said, if you have the space why remove them?
