    Don't try to clean the registry.
    Don't change page file.
    Don't make a RAM disk
    Don't turn off pre-fetch.
    Don't do anything in fact unless you really know what you are doing.

    As a replacement for CCleaner - I'd suggest that you don't. If you feel you must use something then try one that doesn't involve you paying them.

    I use it, but don't recommend it ,because it has the potential to cause problems ,although it never has for me it has to others ,so I avoided it
