Free Windows Cleanup Tool

CNET Editors' review

Free Windows Cleanup Tool is actually a bundle of free Windows utilities that can clean your system, defragment your registry, and perform other maintenance. It's a no-nonsense package that is simple to set up and use. It offers plenty of options, especially the cleaning tool.

Free Windows Cleanup Tool's interface is rectangular dialog with vertically arranged program icons, tree-view settings panel, and main window. The first tool, the Cleaner, requires users to select exactly what they want to clean, which keeps inexperienced users from accidentally deleting the wrong files. The cleaner settings included all major browsers, system temporary files, application caches, log files, and many more options. We made our selections and clicked Test. The program analyzed those parts of our system we'd selected and displayed the results in the main view. We reviewed the scan and, finding nothing questionable, clicked Clean. The program tracked our job with a green progress bar. The program's settings let us configure a registry backup folder; we highly recommend doing this and following through with the backup before running this or any registry tool. After we'd cleaned the registry, we ran the defragmentation tool, which told us our registry didn't need compacting and to run the tool again at a later date. Under Tools, the program offers a Startup manager, Index.dat file viewer, and Registry and Windows Backup tools. Under Options we found a Schedule tool, an Ignore List, and, wonder of wonders, a Boss Key. The Help button accessed online documentation, updates, and more.

Free Windows Cleanup Tool has a lot of competition in the free system cleaner/registry optimizer field. We found it to be safe and effective, erring on the cautious side. As always, we recommend caution any time you're in the registry, and we also advise deselecting your browser's passwords and any other settings you don't want deleted. Used carefully, tools like this one can help you keep your system clean and tidy.
