Leawo's Tunes Cleaner searches your iTunes library for duplicates, missing album art and song tags, and other issues, and automatically fixes it all without requiring an iTunes Store account.

Leawo Tunes Cleaner does work with Windows 8, though, as well as XP, Vista, and Windows 7; both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. It's not free, but the unregistered version … Read more

Even if you're not a hardcore user who spends hours on the computer every day, junk files can still clog up your system and slow it down over time.

The clean, mostly white interface is fairly simple, with two large buttons for the main functions to clean up or optimize your computer. One click starts … Read more
