Windows Maintenance Programs

Computer maintenance can be both physical (dust removal, etc.) and software. The second is more related to the operating system, since the software maintenance of the PC itself at home is only an update to the BIOS of the motherboard.

In all other cases, software maintenance refers to the work of cleaning and optimizing the operating system. All this is done using special programs, which are listed in the article.

CPUZCPUZ Go to the website
Information about the processor, memory and motherboard of the computer. It is possible not only to obtain information about the main components and characteristics of the computer, but also to save this information in the form of a convenient detailed table. I often use this when servicing a PC. Saved the report, renamed it customer, for example. And the next time you can recall its configuration in a couple of clicks.
GPUZGPUZ Go to website
The program allows you to receive detailed information about the video card with the ability to maintain logs and create reports (stored in a txt file). It is also possible to save the BIOS of the video card, which can be very useful when flashing it. The interface is intuitive and similar to the interface of the previous program. Information can be viewed immediately on all video extensions installed in the system (drop-down list at the bottom of the main program window).
HW MonitorHW Monitor Go to the website
The program allows you to get detailed information about the temperature and voltage of various PC nodes. It fixes the effective, minimum and maximum value of each parameter throughout the work. This can be convenient when testing hardware, in particular processors and video cards.
Speed ​​FanSpeed ​​Fan Go To Website
Detailed monitoring of the state of the processor, hard disk and their temperature. It is also possible to change the settings mat. boards for overclocking and control the rotation speed of coolers. The program compiles a report on the status of the hard disk, which is available by reference in online mode. You can also use SpeedFan in conjunction with the Samurize program, which allows you to create a sidebar on the desktop and display information about the PC on it. Samurize is relevant for Windows XP, as there are default sidebars in Vista and Win7.
HD TuneHD Tune Go To Website
Hard drive status informer. The program allows you to get quite extensive information about the state of the hard drive, its speed, determine the presence of bad sectors and damage. On the developer’s site a list of test results of hard drives of well-known manufacturers made by this program is available.
Victoria for WindowsVictoria for Windows Visit Site
Hard drive status informer. A program that allows not only to receive information about the hard drive, but also to change some of its parameters, edit bad sectors and much more. A very powerful tool and, given the scope, quite dangerous, especially regarding data. Use carefully.
SIWSIW Go to website
System-wide informer. A program that provides extensive information about the hardware of a computer (device manufacturers, versions, etc.), as well as drivers and other system extensions. Good hardware reference.
CCleanerCCleaner Go to the website
System Trash Cleaner. The program is from the category of “Must have.” Allows you to delete temporary system files, uninstall programs and clean the registry from errors, including in automatic mode when the system boots. There are a number of programs of this class with the same functionality or with much larger. However, having tried a dozen of them, I came to the conclusion that either the purges are ostentatious or too thorough, which ultimately leads to unstable operation of the system. Therefore, I stopped my choice on this program.
DefragglerDefraggler Go To Website
Defragmenter drives (disks). The program for defragmenting hard drives and flash drives. Regular defragmentation increases the speed of the computer and allows you to increase the likelihood of data recovery in case of accidental deletion, loss in the event of a system crash or when formatting a disk. For the program to work, 15% of free disk space is required. It can automatically defragment system files and the swap file before loading the system, which in turn can speed up its work.
Auslogics Registry DefragAuslogics Registry Defrag Go to website
A program to defragment a registry file. Over time, the registry file can become quite large, especially if it is not cleaned from unnecessary or old entries. When the system is running, the registry file is completely downloaded into RAM, so the smaller it is, the better. In addition to this, registry fragmentation slows down the speed of working with it. And since the system constantly accesses the registry, the speed of the system, respectively, also decreases.
