Clean up your hard drive and Registry, then defragment both

Wise PC Engineer offers a collection of PC cleanup and maintenance tools, designed to optimise your PCs performance.

The Disk Cleaner, for instance, scans your hard drive looking for junk that can safely be deleted. It identifies these leftovers by extension (assuming that, say, *.tmp files are temporary), which is a little riskier than simply deleting your browser cache and the contents of your Windows temporary folders, but can also recover much more drive space.

The Registry Cleaner similarly locates redundant Registry keys, but places a greater emphasis on protecting you. Once your system has been scanned, the program will evaluate the consequences of deleting each key, and recommend you delete only those that it's sure can be removed safely.

Once you've tidied up a little, the program's Registry Defrag tool will compact your Registry files to ensure they're taking up the minimum of RAM and hard drive space.

A simple defragger can then optimise your entire hard drive to improve its overall performance.

And there's also a file undelete tool, though this is poor by comparison with the rest of the package. It scans your drives for deleted files, but to locate them you must know exactly where they're stored, and navigate there through your folder tree (more difficult than usual as the folders aren't even in alphabetical order).

You can schedule the disk and Registry cleaners to run on a regular basis, at the time of your choosing.

And while they're not available in the trial, if you buy the program you'll also get a few other options. These include a secure delete tool, which wipes away confidential files so they can't be recovered; a System Optimizer will help ensure your PC's settings are delivering the best possible performance; and a 1-click tuneup option performs your chosen optimisations at a single click.

Verdict:

Wise PC Engineer provides a capable disk and Registry cleaner, but the other options are on the basic side and add little to the package

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
