Get Control Of Your PC With Norton Clean SweepGet Control Of Your PC With Norton Clean Sweep

Proper and regular maintenance of your computer system is simply smart computing. With regular use system folders get cluttered up, files get scattered around and lost, and the registry gets full of unneeded information. Without proper upkeep, simply using your computer normally and properly can end up reducing its performance. Just like your car, your PC needs a regular tuneup in order to work at peak performance.

Norton CleanSweep is a set of tools help you do this regular maintenance quickly and easily. It lets you free up disk space and manage applications on your computer from one simple to use control panel. It is designed to allow you better and safer control over what gets deleted and cleaned from your computer and when. Many people don't realize that Windows doesn't do the best job of removing and deleting files and applications. Often files are left on your machine and end up using valuable disk space which impacts drive performance. Worse, often files are often left in the system directories which leads to poor computer performance.

Norton Clean Sweep helps manage both items you manually and those that you remove through Windows? Add/Remove Programs. By doing this you keep you machine working more smoothly and at a much better level of performance.

Here is a partial list of some of the benefits Norton CleanSweep provides:

Uninstall Cleaners:

* Uninstall Wizard -- Clean Sweep safely removes programs for the safest and most complete removal. Fast & Safe Cleanup?Searches your system finds and deletes specific file types that are known to be safe to remove Internet Cache and Cookie Cleanup?Quickly frees up valuable disk space by removing files from your internet cache and Internet cookies. For example files from websites you visited months ago but never visited again

System Cleaners:

Registry Sweep -- The Windows Registry is a database of configuration information about your computer, programs, and user settings. Many uninstallers do not remove their registry entries. This dramatically reduces performance. The registry sweeper cleans and optimizes your registry

Duplicate File Finder -- Often applications create duplicate copies of files. Often people do it too, quite by mistake. These waste disk space and can impact performance. Norton Clean Sweep finds these and then lets you choose what to do with them (keep, move, or delete).

Safe Cleanup -- This allows you to set certain file types that will be placed into a special ?holding? area before being deleted. So if you are a web developer you can tell it to ?hold? .html pages rather than directly deleting them. This lets you review files one more time before actually deleting them. You can tell clean sweep any number and kind of files to protect (.doc, .jpg, .mp3, .xls) If you are in an office this is a great way to protect valuable files from accidental deleting.

Overall Norton Clean sweep is a nice addition to the Norton Utilities suite of applications. It is now an integrated part of Norton Utilities and/or Norton System Works. If you are a heavy computer user or run a business, it is well worth the investment.
