Surprised there's no mention of CCleaner. Not only does it clean up your drive (you can choose what to clean and what to leave) it also checks your registry for errors, you can disable/delete startup options for windows, internet explorer, firefox and scheduled tasks. It also lets you pick and choose system restore points to delete and has a built in driver wiper.

Worked for me
Got an email at the start of the year from Stardock advertising this. Ended up upgrading 5 family PCs and bought this for each one!
**LINK WARNING: DO NOT READ THE PANEL ON THE RIGHT**
Why would you right that? It's like telling someone 'don't push the red button!'.
This is not the title you're looking for...
SW:TOR... and with early access Christmas has come early!
Wow, almost 30 seconds to google and find a guide to get performance back on an SSD!
And yes, I use this on my 3 year old SSD and have no problems with speed.
Would've been nice to locate both HDMI ports on the back.
I assume the device is going to be sitting on top of a shelf/TV/STB so the IR sensor is pointing forward but then you're gonna have an HDMI cable poking out before bending back :/
It'll be like last time then...
As soon as the 16GB iPhone 4 came out it was suddenly impossible to find a 16GB 3GS anywhere. Probably find the 16GB iPhone 4 will vanish and anyone wanting some decent space will have no choice but to fork out for the newest iPhone.
That would be the Euro symbol
You know, the money they spend in... Europe!
And it can hardly be a substitute for the $ that is still clearly visible on the number 4 key now, can it?
letters and/or digits
Must admit, after reading a few books through the Kindle App on the iPhone it's made me want to go buy a Kindle :D
RE: Value for money ?????????
Here's what i get 'out-the-box' with windows that actually matters to me:
- Ability to install and play games (how come that's neer on the list when people spout about how great linux is?)
- Ability to install Firefox
- Ability to plank any member of the family in front of the pc
- Ability to configure a lot of the aspects of my pc (do people just go 'Open control Panel can't find it so it doesn't exist' instead of editing policies?)
- Define 'good' media player? WMP does everything i need it to with the added benefit of working with my MCE remote
And seriously, do people read the article? Where's all this confusion about the EU Full and Upgrade versions coming from?
US gets Full and Upgrade version. EU gets "Full" version WITHOUT IE for the same price as US Upgrade. EU doesn't get Upgrade WITHOUT IE because MS won't have it ready in time.
RE: SO like an iPhone...
"except for the total lack of 3d party apps in any appreciable quantity"
I can't help but notice the word 'quantity'. Don't you mean 'quality'? No? Thought so...
