Try each one and stick with the one you like best. I'd begin with Onyx 
<http://www.titanium.free.fr/download/OnyX_150.zip>, simply because 
it's free.

Would you try the Pic Blanc tunnel or the Glacier de Sarenne if you 
were a novice skier? This is definitely a non-newbie subject. IMHO, 
until you can describe yourself as an expert and are comfortable with 
rebooting your Mac in single-user mode and reconfiguring your machine 
from the CLI, forget about it. Also, IMHO, what the above apps do is 
mostly troubleshooting, rather than maintenance. I'm not sure a novice 
user needs to run them on a regular basis.
