    What do you think is the best hard drive cleaner for cleaning the unwanted files from the hard drive but leaving Windows XP so I dont have to reinstall it? Is there any freeware or is it better to buy a program?

    +1. It even has a tool built in to clean and repair the registry to keep Windows running smooth.

    It doesn't remove any neccessary files. I use it on my three computers, and a buddy of mine uses it on his five (family PC's). No problems at all. Only a smoother running PC. Click on the link provided for in-depth details. Great program.

    I need to thank whoever it was who suggested CCleaner a few weeks ago here on GT. It works. It's fast. It's free. At least one computer guy on the radio I've heard advises listeners to use it.
