  1. In the Startup entry tab there is a startup entry that does not work anymore (Startup Common) and I can't delete it. Is there a way? I don't want to see it in the list anymore. Thanks.
  2. I use Windows 7 Firewall. I don't want software firewalls because they are resource hogger.
  3. You can go in the Security Center and change the way it alerts you when you don't have an anti-virus or disable Windows Firewall )
  4. I use Avast Home Free Edition. Antivir is also a good one but Avast has Anti-Spyware and Anti-Rootkit included, it also monitors popular messaging and P2P applications. It works on my Windows Se7en setup
  5. Indeed that would be a nice option, when you defragment using Defraggler it takes a long time defrag the restore points. Cleaning them with CCleaner before defrag would be cool.
  6. You can clean the older system restore points using Windows Disk Cleaner and you can also reduce the disk space System Restore will use. If you don't know how just ask me.
  7. I agree with you YoKenny, there are many good programs out there for free. I tend to stick with the ones that are regularly updated. I just ran Auslogics registry Defrag and Free Registry Defrag and they both showed the same result: I will save 672KB (1%) in registry size after compacting. I will have to choose between those two programs.
  8. I went on NTREGOPT website and did some reading. Apparently it does not defragment the registry, it only compacts it. I found the following note from the editor: Note that the program does NOT change the contents of the registry in any way, nor does it physically defrag the registry files on the drive (as the PageDefrag program from SysInternals does). The optimization done by NTREGOPT is simply compacting the registry hives to the minimum size possible. Both Auslogics Registry Defrag and Free Registry Defrag v2.35 Defrag, Compact and Optimize the registry hives. I will continue to put those two programs to the test. Auslogics Registry Defrag is updated every ragularly.
  9. I put Auslogics disk defrag and Auslogics registry defrag to the test and they are good programs. When I run Auslogics registry defrag and then after a reboot I run Free registry defrag from Registry Clean Expert it says that the registry does not need to be defragmented nor optimized so it means that Auslogics registry defrag did its job. When I run Auslogics disk defrag and then right after I run Defraggler it says that the drive is not fragmented so it means that Auslogics disk defrag did its job (faster then Defraggler) Anyway I prefer Defraggler because it has more features and options. I used to use NTREGOPT in the past but I wasn't sure if it did a good job at that time. Auslogics asks you to close all running applications before optimizing which makes sence since they are in use by the registry. NTREGOPT does not ask you to close all running programs. I will give it a try in Vista anyway. I am trying many programs at the moment, I will have to choose one day which is hard lol it would be nice if Piriform could do a registry defrag program.
  10. I use Auslogics Registry Defrag and I find it to be a very good free program. Auslogics Registry Defrag Cheers
