Hi Im running windows XP on this computer. I was told that running a pc optimization program and a file backup program increase the performance and security of my computer. Is this correct and if so can anyone recommend a decent one/s.
Well only programs that clean excessive trash (not registry), sorting your files out and keeping only all thats necessary and backing up the HDD regularly, making good restore points regularly, having all Windows updates installed, removing unwanted context menu items, defrag the HDD and the prefetch folder, using ERUNT and NT Registry Optimizer and using application specific programs such as Flashblock for Firefox; will actually speeden up your PC.
Safety and security is a different topic altogether.
