3 Free Utilities To Clean PC

These applications are all free. I've used them all, and they are very user friendly and work great.

1. Delete With EraserDrop

Kim Komando mentioned this in her tech newsletter today so it definitely bears repeating if you haven't heard of it before. Just about everyone knows that when you delete a file by dragging it over to your Trash Bin that it really isn't deleted. It's still there on the hard drive and can be recovered. It remains on the hard drive and can be accessed until that space on the hard drive is either wiped clean or overwritten with another file.

The proper way to delete is with a software app designed to do this. Try EraserDrop which is free from PortableApps.com.

2. Clean With CCleaner

I've been using CCleaner and the other free utilities offered by Piriform for a very long time. CCleaner is the number-one tool for cleaning your Windows PC, and it helps protect your privacy online and makes your computer faster and more securely.

3. Recover With Recuva

Sometimes we computer users do dumb things like accidentally deleting a file. Sometimes computers crash, and we lose files. Try Piriform's Recuva to recover deleted files from a Windows computer, your Recycle Bin, your digital camera card, or MP3 player.

You usually have to create an account on these websites in order to access the free download, but these sites are reputable so they're safe.

Takeaway Truth

Free utilities that work great and are easy to use. What could be better?
