A fresh re-install always makes Windows much faster but that means you lose all your program settings.

CloneApp will Backup all your App settings from Windows' directories and the Registry, and only those you really need.

The Idea behind CloneApp is a bit different from the "classic" Backup tool. The Main purpose is to backup all the Configuration files in the Windows Program directories and the Registry.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
