There are many programs that will clean up your PC for you, buy WinLube is one of the best I have checked out. This is a great way to keep your PC running as it should be and it takes away all of the frustration from “cleaning” your PC. It even offers you a free 30-day trial so you have nothing to lose by checking this out.

The Program Review
As the name suggests, WinLube is only for Windows, but you can use this with any Windows from Windows Vista all the way to what we have now with Windows 10. It can be very frustrating when you want to do something on your computer, but it is running slow and just generally being a real pain in the rear end to use.
The first thing I have to say I like about this software is just how easy it is to use. When you fire up WinLube, you have a series of options right in front of you that are all very easy to figure out. You have clean up, tuning, customize Windows, and maintenance. You also have a quick option to clean up your hard disk and your registry right from the opening screen.
The first feature I want to talk about is the way that WinLube can clean up your hard drive. When you run this, you will be shown a list of unnecessary files. You can then get rid of all of these with one click, or you can go through them all if you want to see if there are any that you feel are worth keeping. Getting rid of this clutter on your hard drive can help your PC run faster!
Clearing your RAM is a great way to keep things running smoothly and this makes that very easy to do. Best of all, while you can open it up and clear the RAM yourself, you can set a timer so it will do it every so often by itself. This is a fantastic feature and was actually one of the first that I set up.
There is also a manage startup option. Sometimes, our PCs will open up a bunch of programs when we start them up, many of which are not needed! With this, you can actually manage what programs will boot up once the computer is turned on. I was pretty amazed at how quickly this got my computer ready for use so be sure to use this!
I have to admit that I was not sure what a “broken shortcut” exactly was before I used this. If you have any kind of shortcuts that link to a file that is no longer there or damaged, this can help you out. It will allow you to try and repair the broken shortcut or it will let you delete it and get it off your computer.
No doubt at some point, you have dealt with a file that no matter how many times you delete it, it is still there! There is a feature on here called the WinLube File Shredder and this will take care of any file, even very stubborn ones, and get them off your PC with just a couple of clicks.
The free trial of WinLube gives you 30 days of use and this is more than enough time to see if this is for you. The full version only costs $19.95 which I think is a very fair price. Granted there are other similar pieces of software that are cheaper or even free, but this really does make cleaning up your PC as easy as possible.
