Trial restrictions don't hamper performance

Keep your system in check with this easy-to-use optimization program.

System Cleaner is the ultimate system maintenance tool. And even though it does come with a few trial restrictions, we were impressed with its capability to quickly scan, locate, and repair problems files on our computer.

The user interface is very clean and very easy to navigate. You have five menu options, each with its own tools for optimizing your system. We first opted to scan and clean our disk space. The program quickly went to work, scanning our system and finding problem files. We especially appreciated that the program let us view the details of the scan before fixing the problems. Too often, similar programs don't let you manage the problem files. Some of the program's features are locked until you register, and pay for, the program. But we were still able to successfully fix some of the problem files and gain a clear picture of how well the program works. The Registry Cleaner also worked exceptionally well, letting us view the details of the scan before fixing them. The program includes a Startup Manager, as well as a System Snapshot tool. The program has an extensive Settings menu that lets you select the utilities you want to protect by another handy tool, the Restore Manager.

On top of the locked features, the program also restricts you to a brief 15-day trial period. Despite its ease of use, this isn't a program for novice users, or anyone not familiar or comfortable working with the registry. For those who are, we highly recommend this comprehensive system maintenance program.
