Default Free Programs to speed your computer up!!

This is my own post.

I use these 2 free programs and run them weekly because most of these freebie sites and instant track your browser after visiting the site and slow you down.

Advanced System Care

Advanced SystemCare Free - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

Ad-Aware

Ad-Aware Free Internet Security - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

These are the best freebies you can have!

Run them and you will be amazrd of the crap it finds

(Might have to allow on top of your browser if using explorer)

Another free program I use just about every day (and is highly praised in the CD computer forum) is
CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

It has kept all my computers through the years clean and running smooth. It cleans out all the files your computer gathers up while browsing, watching moves, watching music videos, playing games, etc.

Thanks for the ad-aware link Bob. I wasn't sure if I needed on with Firefox....do you happen to know? Perhaps I could ask the question at the CD computer forum. Sometimes, I'm just not sure what I need and don't need and hate to download duplicate programs.

Not sure of Adaware with Firefox Glory.

CCleaner is also another excellent program to have

Thanks Glory!

Thanks so much, Bob! My PC has been running slower lately.
I have the CCleaner, which I like a lot, & I'm downloading the other two as soon as I finish typing this. Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!

Me too! I'm going to run it as soon as I get offline. (Turns out I already have AdAware.)
