Fast Cleaner Gold

CNET Editors' review

Long computer use can leave a hard drive cluttered with as much junk as an ordinary, offline desktop. Fast Cleaner Gold is designed to clean, streamline, and protect a machine, but its chaotic organization and limited feature set leave it stuck well behind many of its peers. After installation, users are presented with a list of utilities that partially duplicate each other's tasks. These perform such jobs as deleting junk and temporary files, cleaning the Internet Explorer cache, and eliminating the traces left behind from utilities such as WinZip. However, the program lacks advanced features such as a permanent file shredder that can prevent data recovery, or a scheduler that can perform cleanups automatically. All told, the program's limited features are helpful, but we think Fast Cleaner Gold is unlikely to satisfy the most demanding computer users.

    "I like it!. I find it easier to find junk files."

    January 20, 2006  |   By jerryjones

    Version: Fast Cleaner Gold 2 build 6200

    Pros

    With the new quickview program, I first find folders which occupy much disk space and then search for junk files in them with fast cleaner program. This is much easier than before, and this is time-saving!! At that time I had to manually look into each folder and deleted junk files, and this took me too much time!

    Cons

    Do not use backup method in Cleanup options.
