    "All computers get slow once in a while. System cleaners, like System Ninja, help combat that by cleaning out old files that may be slowing down your computer. And yet, the software did not really make a noticeable difference on my system. Its UI was unintuitive, and its installer wanted to install other software as well. Frankly, save your time and just get Piriform's C-Cleaner instead. Meh!"

    "Malware-Bytes Anti-Malware is legend. I've been using it since 2008 on client systems, as well as my own. Unlike conventional AV software, it'll actually dismantle embedded rootkits undetectable by past heuristics. The interface is clean, and with a couple quick tweaks, MBAM will be gentle on system resources when doing preventive scans. Can't recommend highly enough!"

    "Duplicate Media finder is part of the software that removes duplicates on your PC. Compared to similar software, it offers new features or combines the best features in one tool. I think in particular: - It allows to find similar media files like images, music or videos, as well as identical duplicates. - When possible, it displays natively the contents of duplicates in the form of tables of thumbnails. - It runs on windows but can also scan your smartphone (Android, iPhone), or the cloud. - Simple to use."

    "This utility is free to download. However, if you want the full benefits of this product, you will have to commit to $49.99 per year. I love free items, however, I also like to receive all the benefits of applications. I do not feel comfortable purchasing the full version for the annual fee of $49.99. Maybe if the fee was for the life of the application so that over the years you will feel like you have gotten your "money's worth out of the utility."

    "The PC Decrapifier is a system optimization tool that does a lot of things that some more popular software solutions already do, too. The only thing that sets this one apart is its ridiculous name. If you think it's funny, go ahead and give this one a try. Otherwise, feel free to continue ignoring it because you aren't missing anything."
