      I have never heard of any of these.

      I find that ccleaner does a good job of eliminating cruft and jkdefrag
      does a better job at defragmenting than the built in Windows
      defragmenter. I also use pagedefrag to keep the page file optimized.

      Registry optimizers seem to hurt rather than help on 2000 and newer, so
      I recommend they not be run on a regular basis. As always a backup of
      the registry to fall back to is a go idea, in case the "optimization"
      reduces performance.
