Computer Cleaner is a simple piece of software developed to help users get rid of unnecessary files and thus save space on the hard disks.
As compared to other similar programs on the market, Computer Cleaner adopts a wizard-like interface, so users are guided throughout the whole cleaning process.
What's more, using this kind of approach, the application offers plenty of information on every single feature, which can be only good news for rookies who want to stay on the safe side all the time.
First of all, Computer Cleaner prompts users to choose the drive to scan for unnecessary files, while it then requires them to pick the type of data to be removed. There are several options available, including temporary files, image caches, help file caches, log files, diagnostics files and backup files.
The scanning process per se takes just a few minutes, but we've noticed a moderate CPU usage during the process. Computer Cleaner also recommends users to close the other running apps before starting a new scan.
While the app cannot create a backup of the files to be removed, it can log every single action and even keep the logs for a user-defined period of time.
Overall, Computer Cleaner serves its purpose although there are things to be improved. For example, support for many more browsers could help a lot, while a backup utility can only make rookies feel safer when removing some of the displayed files. The good thing however is that Computer Cleaner remains very easy to use and requires only minimum computer knowledge to do its job.
