Useful 5

Welcome to the first addition of Useful 5; a weekly themed list of useful applications available for download (typically free downloads only)

This week’s theme is Computer Maintenance
Below you’ll find our Useful 5 picks of this week:

 

 SmartDefrag 31. IObit’s Smart Defrag 3:

This application is self explanatory aside from all the features it provides; completely replacing your current defrag program, it’s an essential for maintaining your computers reliability. This program takes a few to defrag a drive; but is smart enough to detect an SSD and not defrag it. Which is great! This program features an “Action Center” which suggests other applications for maintaining a healthy reliable system; although we didn’t find much use of them; you just may!

CCleaner2. CCleaner:

This is a great program used to clean up your computer’s memory and stored information and allow your system to run smoothly without all those unneeded temporary files getting in your way. With a simple and intuitive design this application is easy on the eyes as well as the minds. Easy to use UI allows users to have a quick and pleasant experience while cleaning up their files. With the ability to delete cookies, temporary files and more, this is a great alternative to an expensive system cleaning program.

Driver Booster3. IObit’s Driver Booster:

As the name suggests this application aims to update out-of-date drivers and help programs run more efficiently and reliably. Driver Booster has the ability to automatically recognize new drivers and install them all in a flash, all at once or individually. Great alternative to searching the internet far and wide to find that one printer driver you need. Easy and effectively great to use. Highly recommend this application.

malwarebytes4. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:

This particular application is an extensively used application around the offices here; used for completely ridding systems of any malware or other threat. And needless to say, this program does just that. An easy to use interface allows users to quickly begin scanning their systems and removing potential threats from their computers. Great and most effective of the list; this is the ONLY anti-malware software we recommend simply because we’ve used it for years and never had a single problem with it. Great application.

Advanced System Care5. IObit’s Advanced SystemCare Free:

This application is functional in an array of ways; one of the most predominate is the One-Click-Fix they offer. Has tons of useful features built in as it is and is a definite option for those looking for a great FREE System Utility Service. We highly recommend this program; we’ve used it for just under 2 years and have had no problems at all. Aside from the occasional freeze-up of the program but it quickly kicks itself out of it.
