I've also been looking for a good tool that does this..Is that free Warez? Also does it clean all the registry entry crap that is no longer needed? You dont happen to have a link for a pagefile defragmenter do you I am in the process of getting all my software tools in order.

Sure is free. I run it whenever I delete a program or spyware etc. Runs great. Systernals has an automatic defrag when you boot..
