  1. Ccleaner Portable - My favorite Registry cleaner and repair tool in one.  This helps remove broken windows registry entries and gets rid of browser cache and cookies.
  2. Revo Uninstaller Portable - This great tool removes junk that an unwanted program's uninstall routine leaves behind.
  3. EasyCleaner Portable - This complements CCleaner.  It's great at helping you remove files from a full Hard Drive.  The Space Usage tool shows how much space each folder takes up.
  4. SuperAntiSpyware Online Safe Scan - The best malware scanner I've used to date.  Only issue I have had with SuperAntiSpyware was it didn't work in Safe mode.
  5. Recuva - This little app helps undelete files you may have deleted.  This app is from the makers of CCleaner.
