Default What are the BEST desktop maintenance FREE programmes?

I was wondering if you guys had any idea's here in regards to what are the best FREE programmes to have and use on your PC for general maintenance really?

Be it clean up programmes, anti virus, general looking after your PC drivers, fixing errors, just all things like that to keep your computer running smoothly and looked after, fixing any kind of errors you may get too?

I've got nothing at the moment, I did use Avast anti virus, has Ccleaner, WinASO and a few things, but these are things I've had for a while now and thought there is possibly newer and better things out there now since these were launched, so any idea's?

I'd really like to get some new things to keep my computer running nicely, preferably long term freeware rather than something you only get for 30 days or whatever.

Thanks

What Operating system you use Win or Linux? Just to have a better perspective

I know your looking for new tools but some of the things you've been using are really good sometimes a change isn't that good. I have tested some of the new tools and they gave me some troubles. I can recomend you:

Avast is still one of the best anti-virus till this day man.
ESET Internet Security.
Microsoft Security Essentials.

SpyBot Search & Destroy: Finds nasty reg keys spyware.
Spyware Blaster: Blocks spying/tracking via cookies restrict unwanted/dangerous web-sites.
Secunia: It keeps a lookout for patches and updates for installation software.

I will stay with CCleaner but you can try SlimCleaner, Advanced SystemCare.

In 22 years of using computers, I've never used anything more than bare bones free AVG. In 22 years of computer useage, I've only had 5 windows crashes (requiring re-install) and lost 1 hard drive.

In other words, the maintenance programs are basically not needed as long as you're careful in what sort of software you're installing on your computer. If you keep your windows updated and buy / download software from legit sources and developers, you will not need any of those softwares at all. Chances are that if you do manage to install something dangerous and harmful to your PC, the maintenance programs etc won't do anything at all.
