CCleaner and Advanced System Care 5 are great tools for keeping your PC in check.

I've been using CCleaner for years and introduce friends and family to it all the time when they say how slow their PC's have become.

I worked at a University's Computer Help Center, and CCleaner was our primer for the more powerful virus removals. We introduced it to every student that came in.
