Well, you can start here -

Open a Console/Terminal (Crtl | Alt | T) and type

 sudo apt-get autoclean

and/or

sudo apt-get clean

That'll clean your package cache and probably reclaim a couple hundred megabytes. Won't take more than a couple of seconds.

I think the ASUS cleaner you mean is a program that cleans and reorganizes things (rather like similar programs in both Win and MacOS) and, like them, the default seems to be set at a bizarre time that, almost invariably, computers are not running at. In the Eee's case, it would seem they've even disabled that run and hidden it's GUI (what button do you have?)  so you can't set the schedule.

In my experience, running the below (at the obvious schedule) seems to help and I believe this is the program you mean -

 In Terminal -

sudo run-parts -v /etc/cron.daily   

This takes the longest. Don't panic. You'll see the SSD light flickering if in doubt and you will eventually be brought back to  the prompt.

sudo run-parts -v /etc/cron.weekly

sudo run-parts -v /etc/cron.monthly

Hope this is what you mean and that this helps!

I installed AsusOSCleaner from the driver DVD using the installer wizard, and it opened a command window, and it executed this code:

E:\Software\OSCleaner>AsusOSCleaner.exe /s /f1".\setup.iss" /f2"C:\WINDOWS\oscle
an.log"

Hi
I have also been looking for the cleaner for thes delightfull little XP machine but could not find it. You mentioned the DVD. How do I use the dvd? In My PC? Transfer stull with USB Thumbdrive?  I amso use CCleaner in my regular PC. Is it as good for this?

To use the driver DVD with the eee you must only need an external dvd drive when you seek to boot from it for hard disk restoration, otherwise you can just connect to a network that has a computer who shares it's dvd drive and just use that.
