Spacemonger - Tool that is very helpful for cleaning up your hard disk space. It gives you a visual illustration of what directories and files are using up the most space.

That sounds a lot like WinDirStat

I like spacemonger better though - it displays the directory and filenames right on the visual object. Plus it is only one file, so no need to install, uninstall, etc. Much simpler.

Do you guys/gals have any recommendations about:

- An All-In-One'ish software to maintain and clean the PC? (get rid of junk files, boost the performance a little etc.). I already use Cacheman5.50 and it's awesome.

- A Software to remove trojans/viruses (does my AVG Free is enough?).

- A Software to remove Spyware/maleware/adware ETC. I already use Ad-Aware... It has been loyal to me a long time now.

Thx in advance!

I don't really think it is possible for any program to take care of the "cleaning" bit as it is extremely difficult to determine what files are safe to delete without adversely affecting anything. You have to do that kind of thing on your own.

If you want something that makes hardware optimizations - cacheman is probably as good as it gets. Though honestly I don't recommend using any program to that effect. 99% of the time, the settings that those software change don't really affect anything. They sound like they would, but they really don't.
