As the title says, what is the best?
I've never been a fan of these all-in one apps as they usually is just a bunch of crap.
But after trying Tune-up, I have found myself installing it every time I did a fresh install. The app is really nice, and does what it says without breaking your computer.
Anyhow, I just saw that Ace Utilities is out with a new version(Vista compatible) and was wondering if you guys have any experience with any of these apps?
Should I give Ace a go??

Personally I'd say neither. Both windows versions are pretty much optimal out of the box. Vista more so.

I'd be wary of utilities that clean the pre-fetch cache though. Deleteing the .pf files actually slows things down :)

What I do want though is a little app that will clean up my start menu of empty folders and dead shortcuts so I don't have to do it by hand :)

I understand this is not to topic but you did mention using it as a registry cleaner. have you tried or used CCleaner for cleaning out garbage files. Its the best out there

Back on XP I use it, but it is still buggy on Vista. In the next few days tho version 1.40 will be out and hopefully fix the Vista problems.
Also a version 2.0 is in the works! :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
