It may only be the second week of December, but the Christmas feeling has already taken over. Software publishers are still releasing software throughout the festive season and we’ve collected together twenty of the biggest titles from the past seven days that you may have missed.

Is FULL-DISKfighter 1.1 full-featured enough for you?

Is FULL-DISKfighter 1.1 full-featured enough for you?

By Mike Williams

FULL-DISKfighter 1.1

It’s one of the most annoying Windows maintenance problems. The more you use your PC, the more your hard drive will become cluttered with all kinds of junk: leftover “temporary” files, various application caches, remnants of supposedly uninstalled programs and a whole lot more.

Of course if you’ve got hundreds of gigabytes of free space remaining then this may not seem to matter very much. But it will still have an effect.  Excessive hard drive clutter can slow down file searches, antivirus scans, defrags, maybe even browsing in Explorer — so cleaning up your system occasionally is a very good idea.
