    What utility software did you find worked the best and is the most reliable to keep your registry clean and drives organized (defraged)?

    I haven't bothered with defragging since Windows 7 came out. It did a great job of automatically keeping the fragmentation down, and Windows 8 seems so do the same. I used to use CCleaner for registry cleaning, and I would still recommend it, but I don't use it anymore myself, because I managed to hose my system with it once or twice (I am one of those people who can't be bothered with taking backups of the registry before modifying it, and I am always fiddling with the more experimental tools...). I'd run it only if I suspected issues in the registry, or if I customarily installed and removed a bunch of software on a regular basis.

    I will have to take a look. Thanks for the tip. Up till now I have tried a few different softwares. Some of which includes ASO, and Tunup Utilities. I can't prove this but I have a feeling there were a couple cases where after running these softwares I suddenly had issues with Windows.

    I agree. CCleaner is the best clean freeware for Windows, also for Mac.
