    Hey< im looking for a Program I had for a while, IT was a 30 Day Free Trial, The Program could Clean/Defrag ur Registry, make optimizations automatically to Everything, and had many other neat Features. All I remember is that is was some sort of System Tool, and the Color Yellow was used alot. Please help me find it.

    This is a Freeware / Opensource thread, I don't really class 30 day trials as free.

    But I have no idea about the program.

    Try Regcleaner or Regscrub or something.

    I want to split my disk(40 GB) into 4 partitions. Currently, it's 1 whole 40 GB C:\

    I always used Partition Magic(got it free with motherboard) for such purposes, but it doesn't run on NTFS.

    So, is there any free program which can do the job for me without causing any problems?

    Thanks!
