2. Auslogics BoostSpeed – if you want more than CCleaner can offer, go for Auslogics BoostSpeed.

3. Easy Duplicate Finder – both CCleaner and BoostSpeed have tools to find and delete duplicate files. But both are kind of basic.

It has lots of options to find all sorts of duplicates and works in sync with iTunes and Windows Media Player.

4. PC Decrapifier – as the name suggests, this awesome free utility decrapifies your computer. It’s great for uninstalling junk including pre-installed software that can be difficult to get rid of.
