Difficult to completely test, and suffering from a program glitch, our advice is to skip this suite of cleaning tools. FileTorment Suite 2006's plain primary menu consists of simple explanations above and below the four function buttons. The demo version of the software enables only the file deletion tool. However, using the tool erroneously invokes another function.
Three functions are described in FileTorment Suite 2006's very basic help file. The Disk Cleaner uses batch files to clean cookies, caches, and temporary files. The Boot Optimizer promises to improve system start-up speed. Finally, the Antivirus Tool promises to delete select adware in less than a second. Unfortunately, you can't demo any of those functions.
Clicking the Delete button, which opens the FileTorment 3.0 Wizard, is your only option for testing. This function deletes a selected file and is supposed to end by returning to the main menu. Instead, the Antivirus Tool runs and you must click through a couple of menus to return to the main menu.
While this utility appears to be simple enough for novice users, there aren't enough options for advanced users. Also, the demo limits too many features for a decent test of the functions, and the one function that operates leads to a glitch in the program. Simply put, there are better programs on the market and no reason to even give this one a try.
The most popular application of Phoenxsoftware is now fully renewed and contained within a suite of 5 utilities. It can clean your hard disk of all temporary files, optimize and fasten your windows startup and shutdown, wipe files leaving no traces, and scan for adware in 500 milliseconds with the Blastgen Ad-remover. This all combined in an easy to use interface.
