    "I'm afraid..."

    October 27, 2011  |   By Lisalev1

    Version: Find Junk Files 1.51 build 1318

    Pros

    It found a lot of files very quickly.

    Cons

    I was shocked at the amount of files it found. But, I was very hesitant about deleting them, so I didn't. After reading some of these reviews, I'm glad I didn't assume that they were all unnecessary files.

    Summary

    Proceed with caution!

    Pros

    Probably very good apart from the drawback I'ce mentioned.

    Cons

    To Install you are expected to click a box making it your default browser - NO WAY! I'm not going to keep changing my browser to accommodate other software.

    "Real Good Software...!!"

    October 19, 2011  |   By fernandescyril

    Version: Find Junk Files 1.51 build 1318

    Pros

    Found junk files left behind which no other cleaners was even able to trace..

    Cons

    None if you're careful and use option's with proper care..

    Summary

    I bought my computer 2 years back. After 2 years of running CCleaner, Advanced System Care, Glary and several other cleaners daily, Find Junk Files found 200 MB of junk, then safely removed them. I've tried almost every free cleaner on the market, and this is a definite A MUST ON A COMPUTER!

    Updated on Nov 6, 2011

    This is excellent program and not a virus... Deleted all the garbage which even other softwares like CCleaner, Glary Utilities and Advanced System Care was not able to find and remove....

    "OMG This Is A Monster!!!"

    July 26, 2011  |   By ComeToPass

    Version: Find Junk Files 1.51 build 1318

    Pros

    Found junk files left behind after 18 months worth of cleaning with numerous other cleaners.

    Cons

    None if you're careful and use common sense and caution. Default Checkboxes are safe but don't expect much. Ease into this prog as it IS AGGRESIVE. Look up the other file extensions here: http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/bmk and be careful.

    Summary

    I bought my computer refurbished 18 months ago. Keep in mind that computer refurbishers basically buy an old computer for cheap, delete/uninstall everything but Windows OS, and kick it out onto the sales floor. Very little real clean-up involved. I'm a clean freak on this thing and clean obsessively. After 18 months of running CCleaner, Comodo, Advanced System Care, Glary, Wise, 360Amigo, and several other cleaners daily, Find Junk Files found 116 MB of junk, then safely removed them. Many of those files were left on the hard drive by the previous owner. I've tried almost every free cleaner on the market, and this is a definite KEEPER!
