Toni Arts website is nolonger active, however the information displayd here is still relevent to the ToniArts EasyCleaner
Whatever you do,
READ THE INSTRUCTIONS before you use any Registry or other System Tools!

So here it is Freeware - EasyCleaner by by Toni Helenius, ToniArts 2001.
Instruction and General Information.
What is Windows' registry? - Short brief about Windows' registry.
Windows saves information to the registry for and about installed programs. The Registry is like a master register (function control and co-ordinator)for all programs on your PC. It replaces the use of INI (.ini) files. When programs are installed and un-istalled (or deleted when they should have been un-installed) invalid entries are left in the Windows' registry which slows the computer down. The solution to fixing these errors and other problems is: ToniArts' EasyCleaner!
General Program Information.
EasyCleaner is a small program which searches the Windows' registry for invalid or redundent entries that are pointing nowhere, such as to files, folders and or programs that no longer exist and gives you the option to fix these errors. EasyCleaner also lets you delete all kinds of unnecessary files like temps, backups etc. You can also search for duplicate files and you can view some intresting info about your disk space usage! You are also able to manage startup programs, invalid shortcuts and the add/remove software list. DISCLAIMER: ToniArts may not be held accountable in any way if the use of EasyCleaner affects your computer in a negative way.

Download EasyCleaner. (Size 2.69mb with installer, recommended) .gif Download and Save.
EasyCleaner is an self-extracting-EXE so, it won't require any special programs. Just start (run) EClea2_0.exe. to install the program.
Installing new version over previous version (if you don't have a previous version on your system just run EClea2_0.exe and follow the instructions) - Current version is V.2.0 (.6.373)

Try his EasyHTML Editor - also FREE - Information page and available Languages. .gif GoTo EasyHTML Editor Page.

Other than this easy to use Registry and System cleaner, there are of course the standard built-in Operating System "Scandisk", "Checkdisk" System File Checker (SFC.exe) in windows 98 etc, etc.
In adition, there is yet another Registry tool (more for advanced users) called "jv16 PowerTools."
You can download this one from .gif GoTo jv16 Download Page.
It costs USD $49.00 for a lifetime license and useable on 5 computers. A Trial version is also available.

NB:- This has to be better than "pcbugdoctor", or "pcpowerscan" or "error nuker" which scan only - give little information and then ask you to purchase a "Key" before they attempt to fix anything. Do your research and Beware of Scams.
Like we say in Australia, some of these type of programs are "Rip-off's".

Y2K otherwise Year 2000 Hardware Complience of your PC.

Hardware complience is the 1st test that must be performed if you are uncertain of your PC's Mother (Main) Board specification. There are many test programs which allow you to test your MB for the Motorola MC146818 RTC (Real Time Clock). Every PC contains 2 clocks, a built-in hardware clock (RTC) and a virtual clock (SC - System Clock). The RTC runs whether the PC is ON or OFF. The virtual clock (SC) is set to the RTC when the PC's turned ON and exists only while the PC is operating. While the PC is ON and running, the 2 clocks run indepenently of each other.

The Problem.
On older MB's the RTC does not track 4 diget century/year dates, only 2 diget years, eg. 99 instead of 1999 and most likely only the years 80 to 99. The BIOS (Basic In Out System) assumes that any other year cannot occur. So when we get to 2000 the BIOS which did not track the century, will most likely assume that it is the year 80 (1980).

Y2K Hardware Testing
From the "Download" page, download the files Y2000.EXE and CTBIOS.EXE, format a floppy disk with system files and then copy both files onto the floppy disk. Having done so, Run the Y2000.EXE file on the floppy which will generate the 2000.exe and help file for the Y2K test program.

Once this is done, use the floppy we just created, to boot up your PC. The FD can be used on both a Windows 95 or 98 system, Desktop or Laptop PC. The most common error as to why your PC will not boot up from the FD is, the BIOS setup ie. "Boot from Floppy Disk" option is not enabled.When your PC has finished it's boot up sequence, you should be at the A:\ prompt. At the A:\ prompt type 2000and press Enter. Once the test program has started, you will be prompted to agree to the conditions from the software publisher etc. type Yand then wait for ALL the tests to run and finish. You will know this, as on completion, the A:\ prompt will return on the last line of your display.If your hardware is Y2K compliant the test program will display that information, simply read the details on your screen.If NOT, at the A:\ prompt type CTBIOSand your screen will display the details in regard to your Main (Mother) Board and the web site at which the manufacturer site is where you can look for a Flash update (if available) for your MB, which may update it to Y2K compliance.

Software Y2K Testing
There is a Y2K Hardware (RTC) Complience Tester, in the "Test & Utils" section of the "Download" page. You should also download the "Y2K Readme" file. If you still need to test, it's time you got a new Mother Board. If you must, then perform a search for " Test Y2K Compliance " and you will find 100's of other test programs. Try this link to on of them on the .gif www.simtel.net Web Site
