Every application that goes through an install process before it can be used modifies registries in order to be fully functional and compatible with your system. Upon removal, leftovers tend to clog your computer, resulting in a significant drop in performance. Luckily, applications like PC-CLEANER let you keep your machine in good shape.
Simple and intuitive interface
Although not updated for some time now, the application is fully compatible with latest Windows iterations, triggering no issues and getting the job properly done. The interface is not shiny, but with decent visuals and intuitive arrangement of features.
Multiple locations scanned and cleaned
There are several tools the application comes equipped with, with the one emphasized being a registry cleaner. Noticeable areas are closely analyzed, such as application paths, COM / ActiveX, file extensions, resources, startup programs and a few more.
Setting the process in motion takes little of your time, and this can also be said about the cleaning counterpart. A thorough list is available so you can view broken items, along with additional info like cause, location or priority. Unfortunately, there's no possibility to issue or save reports to file.
Schedule automatic scan processes
Before rushing to get your PC cleaned, it's a good idea to try out the registry backup utility, just in case unexpected events occur. Again, the process takes little time, so it's better to be on the safe side. There are several customizable options put at your disposal, with the help of which you can adjust folders to be put under the scope, areas to analyze, file associations, as well as a built-in uninstaller.
What surely comes in handy, is the possibility to make the scan and clean process recurrent, thanks to an integrated scheduler. It can either be configured to automatically run tasks daily at a certain hour, or simply program an operation at a specific date.
To end with
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that PC-CLEANER still gets the job properly done, even though a little over its time and more advanced features can be found in others of its kind. On the other hand, the set of tools put at your disposal and the possibility to schedule processes make it practical overall.
