Default Computer clean up?

My puter is real slow and the normal virus scans , defrags and cookie delet is not helping, Is there any good clean-up sites out there that are good and free {or cheap}?

Download Malwarebytes and run it. You can go to www.cnet.com and type the name into the search bar. It'll help a lot.

Once you do that, then google "ccleaner", install and run that one, too. Both are free and if you run them each about once a week or so, it'll help more than you can imagine.

Malwarebytes is great, also avira has a free version that works fairly well.

Malwarebytes is pretty darn good.

Doesn't catch everything but good. After running Malwarebytes consider downloading Microsoft Security Essentials. It can modify the operating system to fix things and it is FREE. One of the tech experts at my company recommended it, I ignored him until I caught a horrid virus, then I learned.

Reload Windows. That's really the only way to see significant gains.

Malware Bytes, SuperANTI Spyware, Ad-Aware and Spybot... Then uninstall any antivirus protections you have and get Microsoft Security Essentials.

After installing and running CCleaner, run Piriform Defraggler, also a free download. Do this at least daily.
