    Both Ccleaner and comodo do a pretty good job. I happen to trust Ccleaner more and it's a quicker download/install... so it gets my vote

    format c: usually produces acceptable cleaning, also fdisk or diskpart (with extra parameters of course)

    I've been swearing by CCleaner (Slim version) for about five years, or however long it's been around. :D

    I do't use this type of tools.
    They are all inefficient.

    CCleaner, Windows 7 Manager, Quicksys defrag, and O&O Defrag. I find more cleaners redundant, unneccesary, and these are good enough for most jobs.
    Used tuneup and winaso till recently but dumped it in favour of windows 7 manager. Winaso also does a good job. Just do not rely on any uninstaller or system restore to remove all traces. The best uninstaller for me remains windows 7 system image backup and restore. Even all cleaners do not compare with a reinstall every few weeks/months (restore from system image comprising OS, some minor visual tweaks, and some browsers).

    If you are using Windows 7 ccleaner should be enough.

    Once you have analysed and ran the cleaner
    go to tools on the left hand side
    select system restore and select all but the first,
    click remove.....done!

    This will remove old system restore points, if you just built the PC up ad installed a number of updates the could be about 20 restore points on your PC wasting HDD space.

    If performance is an issue for you do the above then run the disk defrag.



    I am assuming you mean a general cleaner of temp files and not something to clean malware/spyware btw.
