Default Internet Eraser

My PC seems to be running a little slow. I think it is because of some stuff I have here and on my computer and because of my friends "surfing habits". What is the best FREE program out there that will get rid of porn, internet activities, etc? I just need a utility that will enhance my PC's performance after getting rid of all the sh** that is on here. Thanks!!

I'd also recommend getting ad-aware and spybot s&d.

Indeed. I have anutha question. I was wondering if there was a program out there that could sit in your system tray and enhance the performance of your computer (something that frees up space as you surf or play games, etc.) Thanks!

You mean something like TuneUp Mem Optimiser (part of TuneUp Utilities 2004-2007)? That uses your RAM in an efficient way to increase performance.

Oh, I am using WinRAR and it keeps bitching about eval copy and stuff. Is there a good, free extraction utility like Winzip or WinRAR out there?
