    @ baki_princ
    that was funny, if you prefer the more progress FF or Chrome versioning:
    simply add 10 bringing this version to

    otherwise, a good utility properly priced although you can find free apps doing much the same tweaks.

    still works flawlessly even in beta. The new GUI is ok for the main window (the white had a cleaner look) but I'm not into the office 07 look for the sub windows, this is a small complaint for a program that has been and continues to be one of the best apps for safely cleaning your system of useless files and controling certain aspects of your system like start up items

    I have used Ace Utilities for several years. I am VERY satified with its performance. Stable as a rock. Easy to use. Superb support (seldom needed). A good support forum, populated by the program's developer and a large community of friendly, helpful fellow-users.

    In all these years, AU has never fouled up my computer by its cleaning operations. I recommend it highly. (It's a 1-time payment, by the way.)
