    I've only used a couple apps from here, but you should be able to find what you need. If I'm reading your post correctly, you're just looking for applications to clean your disk...

    You might try the McAfee site............I think that it is called "disckeeper" or something..........it ships with the security product, but there was a "lite" version that was free.

    Good suggestions so far, lemme throw one more in. The disk cleanup utility included with Windows also can help in this regard as I understand. Of course it can't clean the registry, but there are many registry cleaners out there.
    Real security doesn't come with an installer.
