[Windows] Collect all of your Windows utilities in one place with Puran Ultilities

Every Windows computer ever, no matter how meticulously kept up, has some amount of useless or junk data on it. Be it in a temp file somewhere, or even a failing hard drive, Puran Utilities lets you seek out disk problems with Disk Check. But Puran Utilities is more than just that–it’s a suite of 23 utilities that let you run your computer faster, better, and stronger.

One of the coolest parts of Puran Utilities is its Batch Fix mode. It automatically scans your hard drives and runs a multitude of utilities on them, clearing disk space, deleting broken shortcuts and history, and wiping your free drive space to avoid data recovery. It also of course lets you run each utility one by one, allowing you to fine-tune anything you need to get done.

Overall, Puran Utilities is a great all-in-one program. Its batch fix mode is awesome, and the ability to run each of its utilities at once as well is just icing on the cake. If you’re looking for a cleaner system, Puran is definitely worth a try.

    If I could quote from that great documentary ‘Jaws’
    “You are going to need a bigger screen”
    I bought a 2nd hand 32″ LCD TV (Analog tuner, but you can connect a set top box, if you wish it to double as a TV). It has a VGA input, and I never have to use my magnifier(s) again.

    @greg: I knew that they were shortcuts, but I always thought they were ink files as well. Lnk makes a lot more sense. You must admit that lnk looks exactly like Ink. Thanks for straitening us out.

    @greg bern:

    They’re not ink files, but lnk (small L, not cap I). They are your shortcut links. Thay can always be replaced. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_shortcut.

    thanks, was able to fix it by unchecking the box on left not to show this again.of the security warning box. So ok now.. I am not familiar with ink files but the shortcut fixer does find alot of ink files.

    wasnt able to fix the 15 found files but not sure anyway what it is doing so ok.

    @greg bern:
    I have no specific info but first check the recycle bin. If not there, try a file recovery/undelete program. This utility might have something like that built in called data recovery. If that doesn’t work try Recuva from the makers of defraggler.
    Glary Utilities (a very similar tool kit to Puran’s) has a file undelete function as well. I can’t give any more advice because I have never used the undelete functions of these programs. If you can’t figure it out then perhaps someone else can help you better.
    In the meantime, I suggest not defragging your hard drive as that might overwrite the file permanently.
    There is perhaps a much better way of recovering .ink files but I have no idea.

    I installed no problem on w7 but it has no undo button if delete something need. I did shortcut clean up and dont delete the si.ink as that is used in windows update. now have to click on box popup to allow wu/si.ink file to update.

    anyone have a solution besides restore?
