    My laptop is slow.. maybe because I haven't cleaned its registry/defrag'd the HDD etc...

    Question to all of you who are into these tech things : What tool should I use for maintenance? Free? Paid? Pirated?

    Thanks.

    I use CCleaner and also make sure your laptop is virus free as that can cause serious slow down.

    for registry: ccleaner, pctools registry mechanic
    for defragmenting: distrix ultimatedefrag (lots of option to choose from, but i used to run a 'Fragmented files only' defragmentation), it will significantly increase the performance of your HDD if you have never done this before and you have an older OS install

    enough RAM/processor and always keep at least 10% free space on your HDD, the more the better
    and keep the automatically starting applications on the minimum

    Try TuneUp Utilities. They offer a 15 day free trial which is fully working. Great little tool. Also ccleaner for everyday cookie cleaning and recycle bin emptying.

    1)remove useless applications
    2) use ccleaner
    3) use a registry fixer
    4)use malwarebytes antimalware for trojans checking and fixing
    5)remove useless apps that run on startup, you can use hijack this or autoruns to check them
    6)do a defrag

    if this don't work do a fresh install after a data backup.

    CCleaner is by the best, if you have never done it, you'll be surprised of the effect.

    Check Event Viewer for chronic/significant errors.

    Haven't you asked this question before?
