First Application

To clean up your PC cache, junk and temporary files, “lost” files, tracea of data, left over files after uninstalling programs and much more, you have a choice of two programs.

You may download, install and run either or both programs. I have successfully used both programs on branded and unbranded PCs in several countries and States.

CCLeaner – click her to download
Durig the download, it is best to decline any third party installs such as browsers or other applications from CCleaner; we only want to download the program.. The install will place a shortcut on your desktop and an icon in your System Tray.

AND/OR

Wise Disk Cleaner – click here to download
Durig the download, it is best to decline any third party installs such as browsers or other applications from Wise Disk Cleaner; we only want to download the program.. The install will place a shortcut on your desktop..

After downloading either or both free programs, install and run. It’s best to close any open programs before installing and running.

The paid version of CCLeaner has automatic scheduling. You can setup either program to run automatically through Windows Task Scheduler. Just follow the below blog post instructions substituting ccleaner<version number>.exe and wdcfree.<version number>.exe for the executable file name.

Second Application

Are you letting your PC run all the time? I recommend you not do this. Just like your car, your PC needs a rest. You probably don’t leave your car running all night, neither should your PC be running all night. By turning it off, your PC and it’s operating system is reset and given a fresh start.

Simply follow the below blog post on how to schedule a nightly automatic shutdown and restart of your PC.

That’s it. Only running two applications periodically will make your PC faster, and a hassle free experience.
