The kind of software that will clean up registries, delete unneeded files, optimize ram, etc to boost the overall speed of your computer. Also are these types of software really necessary?

CCleaner and glary are 2 more. They're not terribly necessary IPO. Some people say registry cleaners do more harm than good but I've never had problems with any of them, they're just mostly pointless.

They're not necessary if you take care and avoid installing garbage.

Registry Cleaners are only bad for SSDs.

Don't bother

Just format your drive.
It takes maximum 10 minutes to install windows 8, 15 for Windows 7, and you'll "feel" the speed increase much more than if you used a "cleanup" tool.

Yeah I really don't think iterating through all the registry keys is going to put a whole lot of strain on your drive. Registry cleaners are just about completely unnecessary but it's not going to hurt your SSD if you run one.

not really.

back in the days of XP there were standalone registry cleaners (Regcleaner) and registry compression apps (NTregOpt) that gave noticeable difference to performance (7% faster boottimes for me), but with Vista7/8 they're not longer required.

and neither is CCleaner, which just automatically does what you can do manually yourself.

i agree with other posters, just resintall the OS from a flash drive. fast and no ****ing around.
