Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for The Cleaner
The Cleaner is, just like its name suggests, a software solution designed to remove from your computer malicious files, be them spyware, adware, Trojans or other type of dangerous content.
Just as expected, the ace up its sleeve is ability to detect basically every single malicious file on your computer, but the most important thing is that it comes with two scanning modes to accommodate every type of user out there.
Smart scan was specifically designed to address users who wish to clean their computers on the fly, so the application will only look in those locations known as being friendly with malicious files.
Full scan, on the other hand, checks the whole system and although it takes quite a while to complete, it's still the best way to make sure that nothing's wrong with your machine. One thing we noticed during our tests is that the initial update and database import took a very long time which is not so great by any standards.
The Cleaner is quite user friendly and not too difficult to use because there are only a handful of customizable options in there, so beginners won't have any problems with it. The updating function works all by itself and makes sure that The Cleaner has the latest definitions to block malware quick and easy.
All things considered, The Cleaner remains a good choice when trying to get rid of infected files thanks to its comprehensive databases. Unfortunately, updating them can take too long sometimes, but leaving that aside, this software does a pretty good job and is suited for all user types.
