Lightbulb Name suggestions for new software

I need your help with determining a name for a new software title.

Bit of a background first.

I've been developing a piece of software over 4 years all underwraps. Its getting close to being finished so now Im focusing on coming up with an official name, which also can be registered as a domain (ie. its available).

The software is based around being a disk cleaner/file system optimizer. Its codenames during development were "Fresh Start" and "PC Patch", however no .com domain or a similar domain are available to purchase using these titles.

Thus, I need some idea's for a name that reflects "fresh start" or "patching". For example "Alcohol" or "Metho" (ie. Potent Cleaner) or something else you can think of that sounds cool and gives a idea of being performance enhancing.

To verify your name before suggesting, follow this and type in the domain to see if its available.

Mix of Janitor and Generator.

Heres a early pre pre alpha of the software, using the codename "Fresh Start". Notice hows the application is alphablended, it actually works like this on Windows 95 too. Also notice the messy desktop.

Looks very useful.

Just what's with the garbage can icon for "full search"?
Oooh I get it now, UnClone. Cool

What do you think about my idea..?

Janirator

I like the idea, cf, but I think the word may be assumed for "Generator" or be taken as "Janitor Terminator". I don't think it may come across clearly as using Janitor. Any other suggestions?

Energy Janitor...
or
DeMess
demess.com is available.

Or you can just come up with you own word with no previous meaning. "Blomx" or something like that.

Nice Fanta/bubble-esq look.
But without the name, the look wont fit so well really.

Unless you got for something like

"PC Refresher" (Refreshment?)
"PC pop", "

I guess if your looking for an accurate discription, something like
"UnDuP"...not very fun though.

I dont believe homeless posted in this thread tbh.


Thanks for the idea's.

Ive secured my main domain as well as BoostStart

I chose the name because BoostStart is a common term associated with improvement/performance and being the internet and all, I thought that seeming BooStart.com was taken and BoostStart.com was not, this may be a good opportunity to secure a domain that offers an immediate impression to the user.
