A Cloudeight Freeware Pick to help you maintain and optimize your computer

I keep telling EB that good things come in small packages, but she doesn’t believe me. Like when I sent her a Baby Ruth candy bar for Christmas, I packed it up in a small box and shipped it off to her. When she called me to thank me — um I mean scold me – she called me a cheapskate and about 100 expletives which I can’t repeat here. So for her birthday I’m sending her a box of rubber bands wrapped in a big box that my stove came in. I will stuff it full of old newspapers and Styrofoam peanuts and ship it off UPS. At least she’ll be thrilled to see such a huge box. This proves that bad things come in big packages. And if that is true, the converse is true as well.

Anyway, when she opens that big box, she’ll be really excited until she gets to the gift at the bottom. After I’ve shipped off that big package, I’m going to call Verizon and have them change my number and I’m going to change all my email addresses too. Heck! I’m going to move to Manaus and live in the Amazon where she can’t track me down. She will be angry. Really angry.

What does all this have to do with our freeware pick? You’re probably thinking “nothing”. But again you’d be wrong. Our freeware pick is one of the nicest programs we’ve ever reviewed and one of the best programs we’ve found to speed up your computer’s boot up and shutdown times.

But it’s not only a program that can speed up your Windows startup and shutdown times, it’s one of the sharpest system cleaners and disk defragmenters we’ve ever stumbled upon. DiskMax digs deep into your computer and removes useless or unnecessary files that other cleanup programs only dream about cleaning, like junk left over from Windows updates, browser caches from all major browsers (Chrome, IE, Opera, Firefox, Safari), and many more. It cleans so deeply it’s like pouring a bottle of Mr. Clean into your computer and letting it sluice through the innards until they’re sparkling clean and tidy. Just think of that image and you’ll get the idea how deeply DiskMax digs into the inner sanctum of your computer – whisking away all the dirt and grime leftover by installs, Windows updates, browsing, MS Office files, and so many more.

We do offer one caveat: This program has safe settings and advanced settings. When it warns you to read the help files before proceeding that’s what you need to do. If you don’t want to read the help files, then don’t mess with the stuff that says “Make sure you’ve read the help files before proceeding…” OK?

The gentleman who created DiskMax is a student, and he’s giving this program away. He could easily sell it for $19.95 or $29.95 because it is worth that much. So a word to the wise – altruism only lasts so long. We cannot guarantee it will be free in month, let alone a year. So if you want one of the best freeware programs we’ve ever reviewed, you’ll want to download this one right away.

Here’s the developer’s description of DiskMax:

“Do you know why your computer no longer feels as fast as it did when you first got it? That is because of the accumulation of junk files and other data on your system coupled with inefficient layout of important files.

DiskMax is a powerful disk cleanup and Windows performance optimization application. Download and run it just once – the difference will be instantly noticeable. Your system will be peppier, applications will launch faster, files will open quicker, games will run better, and you will be much happier for it. Running DiskMax from time to time is recommended to keep your system in shape.

Even if you are an advanced user, DiskMax will be useful to you since it automates all the tasks required to keep your system clean and fast, leaving you to enjoy the whole new experience…

    Hi TC & EB,
    Several moons ago, (as time passes quickly) you recommended DiskMax which I have been using since that time.
    Great programme, simple, clear, concise instructions, easy to use.
    Members who don’t have it, go get it already.

    How does it measure up to “Clean Up” that you

    have (earlier in time) recommended?
