I'm looking more for a PERFORMANCE metric, and ideally for the whole system. Something like "Writing a large block of data to a drive", etc.

Can't see how to download the Free version without installing some "downloader" (and there's not guarantee the downloader will actually download the program). Too spammy for me. (I know, I want free AND not spammy).)

comment Is there an easy way to automatically remove (or move) unused desktop icons (shorcuts) in Windows 7/8?
To clarify: On Win 7 Pro: the error with CleanDesktop is : when you actually choose "clean to folder" I get an Unhanded exception. I'm running it as administrator. Also, there's no option to sort by last-accessed date do you have to choose each shortcut, that's really not a solution non techies (my users) can use.

CleanDesktop crashes with unknown error when I run it on my Win 7 PC.

yes I am an administrator and I checked "Apply...automatically". This is Win 7/32bit. I tried it again. It still hasn't removed shortcuts that I haven't clicked in over a year. Have you had it actually work for you? (This wouldn't be the first Windows feature that simply doesn't work).

Hmmm... I tried that but it didn't work. Windows 7 said "probelm not present" but then it lists 2 shorcuts unused in last 3 months. These are the results There are icons on the desktop that haven't been used in 3 months. Unused desktop shortcuts List of shortcuts that have not been recently accessed for 3 months. Shortcut name: c:\users\clay\desktop\smart photo editor.lnk c:\users\clay\desktop\syncback.exe.lnk
