I have noticed loads of empty folders and junk scattered about my hard disk specifially windows related. Rather than spend my life cleaning them out manually are there any good programs to clean them automatically ? I have noticed system mechanic clams to do this and i used to use the norton utilities back in my win9X days. what are peoples opions on these ?
Cheers :)

I've used it before, its not a bad program with lots of great features. Another not bad one is by Ashampoo, but now I just stick with Spybot and custom bat files.

System mechanic is basically a prog with a bunch of things combined in to one. It's not a bad prog. I like it, used it for years.

I used the free version for years and it was great.I tried the pro version and it has an anti virus that will hunt you down mercilessly even if you dont install it and turn it off.

I've used it a few months ago. Didn't re-install i though. I might get a newer version someday ...

Yeah that antivirus from panda. I did'nt care for it either - It was so annoying and bugged the heck out of me also.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
