The software that would match requirements the best is TuneUp Utilities...

It has too many features which will keep your system clean... The only thing you need to look for it, is that it's premium..

As far as Freeware goes, I would recommend using CCleaner. Won't cover the features extensively like TuneUp Utilities but it's free, and is good to optimize your PC.. Especially for Home Users...

Features of CCleaner

Basically this software cleans up the browsers you've installed, like Cache, Temporary Files, History etc...

Apart from that, it does have few optimization features like Registry Cleanup, Cleaning up Windows Temporary Files, DNS Cache, Memory Dumps etc...

  • Adding CCEnhancer to CCleaner more than triples the number of areas for CCleaner to look for temp files

We're in the same boat, since I have a 3 year old dell laptop that's really starting to show its age with super slow startup. I've been using a free program called Baidu PC Faster to speed it up.

First time I used this it claimed to boost my speed by 124%! A little weird -- I don't know how accurate that number is, but I could definitely feel a noticeable difference in my laptop's performance and boot up speed. Even if you know how to manually clear out your browser cache, etc, this app does it for you all in one place, which is actually really convenient.
