I saw a commercial on TV tonight in the Los Angeles area for a computer cleaner called Win Cleaner for about $19.99 or something like that. It was advertised as an item that you plug in to your USB drive and it is supposed to clean up your home computer or probably any computer really well. I have not heard of it before and not much of a tech person. I have a home Toshiba computer and I do have an anti virus program already set up on this computer. Plus I do a defrag and empty recycle, etc. but that's about it.
So I was curious if anyone has used "Win Cleaner" or familiar with it and if it seems to work well on your computer? My computer is about 8 years old and only used at home - never taken anywhere.

And there I was thinking she started as a Yardbirds groupie and ended up as boy George's Tour Manager...rumour had it there was barely a professional rock musician who hadn't been familiar with her...

Haven't used it, but most of those kinds of products are generally a bad idea and will end up costing more or messing up your computer.

What is your operating system? There are some pretty good features in Windows itself for backing up, de-fragging, and clearing out the temporary files. And there are some good programs like WinPatrol and Spybot Search&Destroy for finding junk that was downloaded. And I pay for a version of Malwarebytes to run in realtime.

Windows has a nice collection of tools for computer maintenance. In older versions of windows, it's in a folder called "accessories." In Windows 8.1, it's called "administrative tools."
But I also use the tools that Norton supplies. I know people hate the big companies and tend to trust obscure programs they come across, but I have so much trouble with cute little utilities that our staff (especially college interns) download onto our computers. John in Kansas will be spinning in his grave about my saying this, but I tend to trust Norton and Microsoft and Google. Don't ask me about Comcast, though...
