Major Capabilities

  • Registry monitoring and cleaning: Notifies the user when the Windows registry is in need of repair; repairs and cleans it.
  • Registry defragmentation: Removes gaps, wasted space, and corrupt keys from the registry. Like registry cleaning, defragmenting allows programs to launch as quickly as possible.
  • Disk cleaning: Provides options for cleaning Windows settings, browser settings, plug-ins, and custom items. It also allows "bleaching" of free space on drives or partitions, which renders deleted data unrecoverable by standard methods.
  • Disk optimization: Defragments and optimizes files and data for increased performance.
  • Disk repair: Checks hard disks and repairs problems that could lead to crashes.
  • Startup management: Allows startup items to be disabled, deleted, or enabled to maximize startup speed.
