    What's the advantage to running ccleaner if you systematically run a defrag and disc cleaner?

    neither of those clean the registry specifically. Defrag and disc cleaner are hardware, defrag moves files around so they are easier for the OS to find things, disc cleaner gets rid of unused software. Ccleaner goes into the registry of Windows and finds the little scraps of programing that the software has installed but is still there after a it's taken off.

    difference between hardware and software

    Gotcha. I always thought that once you did an uninstall the entire software was removed.

    oh god no...one of the biggest problems with Windows. They were suppose to get rid of the registry with Vista and 7, but it didn't happen
