Hassle-Free PC: Ten Sure-Fire Fixes for a Problem PC
Tool of the Month: Make Your PC Sparkling Clean
If you want to free your computer of useless system files, try CleanCache 3.0. This free program removes Windows' temporary files, Office's Most Recently Used history, and browser cache files. I prefer judicious cleaning, so I use the 'Clean Checked Items' option rather than 'Run Complete Cleanup'. One gripe: CleanCache has a setting to preserve useful cookies; but even with it turned on, you will have to click 'Remember my Address and Password' again on many of the sites you visit. I let CounterSpy, my antispyware program, manage cookies instead. Note that CleanCache requires Microsoft's .Net Framework.
