Glary Utilities is a free system cleaner and performance booster for your Windows PC. The easy-to-use and intuitive interface features one-click functionality and easy, automated options that give you the choice of either one-click maintenance or a customisable selection. Download Glary Utilities and you get more than 20 system utilities that allow you to customise your scan and features options, including: Registry Cleaner; Spyware Remover; Start-up Manager and Shortcuts Fixer; all of which will improve your computer’s performance. We really like its Windows Boot Time monitor, which sits in the middle of the main interface window, and tells you how long Windows is currently taking to boot on your PC and compares that with other Windows users. Clever! From here you can also access and manage the list of the programs that load on Windows start-up and delay any that take your fancy.
