And no easy answer.
Let me be frank here, the contributors in these forums, myself included, all know that many, many people use these optimizers and experience no problems with them. They do the jobs they are advertised to do. So your mentioning these utilities here in these forums and you get a view that many might not understand, and might disagree with.
I can only say again our experiences in these forums of the problems we have seen.
Personally my advice would be, get rid. But I would be cautious. If any of these utilities are in control of Windows' settings that are otherwise not easily accessible, then uninstalling those utilities might cause problems later down the line. "Control of settings"? I mean they have been used to optimize, improve or change Windows' settings that you may want to revert later, but are unable to without those original installations.
So, if they are not causing problems now, you may consider leaving well alone, and leaving them installed. It's a difficult situation, but in this case, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' may have a different meaning this time.
