dear sir,
i've been loyal for CHIP magazine for a past few years. this magazine is very informative and seed much info and tips regarding ICT world out there. the reviews / benchmark of the products is easy to understand and giving ideas and option to the readers especially when it come a time to buy/install new hardware/software.

"PC Maintainance Utilities", that the actual highlight I try to bold in this post. out there, so many software utilities that can be used such as CCleaner, Advance Systemcare, Tune Up Utilities, Advance System Optimizer, etc and it come in both either FREEWARE or LICENSED. until now, i've use most from the freeware world such as ccleaner (past 2 year i think) until i've been 'introduce' to Advance Systemcare (formely known as Advance WindowsCare) and i've use it till now.

The question is, how to know which product is perform better than others? do you have any idea on how to perform a benchmark for this kind of utilities? perhap that CHIP magazine can include the reviews and benchmark for this kind of software so readers can pick the best for their machine.

Thank you.

I would like to see more advance maintenance. The computer is still a big mystery to me, even though I've been using it for more than 23 years. Either I'm a real dumbo or I'm just not exposing myself to the right knowledge. Hope CHIP can help me in this. :)

Tuneup is the best.. The others corrupt my PC sometimes.. Or some programs, or etc.. Because they automatically delete those item i don't want them to delete.. Especially Advance Windows Care...

When will the CHIP v2.0 comes out with their supplement copies?

I remember there were some issues in v1.0 that comes with such copies like Windows tricks and tips, hardware of the year reviews, etc.

Enjoyed reading those summary of the summaries, if you know what I mean. :)

Thanx once again!
