It might be a good idea to leave it as it is (WinPatrol).
Advanced SystemCare by Iobit is basically a cumulative tool that includes all the cleanup features that Windows normally provides (defragmenter and disk cleanup). It has the bells and whistles that Windows lacks but in reality the functions they perform are almost identical.
