Software That Takes Care Of ... Other Software
By John Deprice
What's housekeeping software? It's software that takes care of your PC and everything recorded on that hard-drive. If that's what you need, make sure you consider these titles.
HandyRecovery 2.0 (SoftLogica LLC)
As you might expect, data recovery and undeletion software is a very popular thing. Next to antivirus software, a firewall and proper backups, a decent file recovery program is the most essential thing you can have on your system. Hard drives die eventually, of course, and worse than that, people make mistakes. HandyRecovery 2.0 is fairly easy to use, allows you to search for deleted files by name and comes with all the help support you'll need to get you on your way. HandyRecovery 2.0 can discover and recover deleted partitions and quick formatted drives as well as undeleting files. It can also be used to make a drive image of a partition so that recovery can be attempted without further damaging a wonky hard disk.
My Registry Cleaner (PC Security Shield)
If your computer is slow and often crashes, My Registry Cleaner will help you. The application scans your entire computer and removes errors, speeds up your PC, and stops crashes. My Registry Cleaner comes with one year of free tech support and updates. My Registry Cleaner will make your system more stable, run quicker, and your operating system will boot faster. Registry problems can occur for many reasons, including references left behind after uninstallation; incorrect removal of software; missing or corrupt hardware drivers; or orphaned start-up programs. With a few easy steps, My Registry Cleaner will scan your entire registry for any invalid entries and provide a list of the errors found.
Win Undelete 2.1 (Jufsoft)
This program for recovering deleted files comes in near the top of its class in almost every area except download restrictions. Win Undelete 2.1 boasts a welcoming interface with buttons for all necessary actions prominently displayed - and since the program greets you with a step-by-step wizard, you may never need the tutorial or help info. The list of supported file types that Win Undelete 2.1 supports is extensive, and you'll really appreciate the program's ability to ignore temporary Internet files and junk files, which saves both time and effort. You can search for deleted documents by extension or filename, as well as sort the list of results.
