Editors' Review

KCleaner is a free system-cleaning utility that offers automatic and manual modes, data scrambling, and multipass deletions. It targets temporary files, browser caches, installers, update caches, and unneeded log files, including the caches for a wide range of programs, including Google Earth, COMODO System Cleaner, AdAware, and TomTom.

KCleaner opens with the tiny interface that serves for automatic mode, and its settings dialog also opens, allowing us to set the interval for automatic cleanups, Expert mode, deletion methods, security settings, and select file types for cleanup from a lengthy list in the main view. There's also a panel for selecting the interface language. We deselected file types that didn't apply to our system and selected those that do, set an interval of 3 hours, and clicked Save. In the meantime, we tried the Expert mode, which displays the files that will be deleted in an expanded view. We clicked Analyse, and the program quickly populated its window with our system's trash. We reviewed the files and clicked Clean. In a minute or so, KCleaner had purged the selected files. We clicked Automatic mode, and after a warning message and a brief countdown, it scanned our system and cleaned the few temporary files that had appeared in the interval. Another timer counted down the hours, minutes, and seconds until the next operation.

KCleaner's automatic mode can help keep your system free of performance-hogging caches and temporary files, and its Expert mode lets you target specific files for cleanup whenever you like. It's well worth taking a look at.

"Neat little cleaning program with nice features"

January 20, 2014  |  By Miomar

 |  Version: KCleaner 2.3.0.54

Pros

The portable version is excellent and handy. I cleaned a lot and a lot of Mb's (Hotfixes/Service Pack Uninstallers.)
The simulate feature is very handy too.
Light weighted software :-) For me safe to use.

Cons

You have to install Shred Files and Disk Health (portable) seperately.

Summary

It does it's job very well ! Kcleaner is cleaning junk files that other software does not.

"Don't waste your time with this Krapware!"

January 17, 2014  |  By btljooz

 |  Version: KCleaner 2.3.0.54

Pros

I uninstalled "Krapware" with Revo Uninstaller. After that I only found a couple of entries left in the Registry unlike a lot of other progs.

Cons

Where do I start?.....Well, the interface is just plain unusable. It's not intuitive at all. I couldn't tell what it cleaned after cleaning as compared to what it found to begin with. I immediately ran CCleaner after wards and it found everything "Krapware" did and more. I then ran MRU Blaster and found the same things it always finds. Krapware didn't clean anything at all!!! So, I uninstalled it. Will NEVER install it again.

Summary

Don't waste your time with this Krapware!

"Should Allow Zero Stars"

September 27, 2013  |  By Snowhater

 |  Version: KCleaner 2.0.0.50

Pros

Hardly any - claims to be thorough, but it's not

Cons

Where to start. Installs spy/garbage/crap ware even if you tell it otherwise. Isn't really as thorough as claimed, and that is bad enough, but the installing all that junk is what really turns me off programs like this.

Summary

If it sounds too good to be true....
Be warned, you don't really want this on your system. There are other, far better programs out there.

"Don't do it"

September 11, 2013  |  By stanreynolds

 |  Version: KCleaner 2.0.0.50

Pros

No idea, I uninstalled it before running.

Cons

Installs bad guys even if you tell it no.

Summary

It took me over an half hour to remove the junk it put in my browsers. There popups all over and misdirected sites galore. (And you need specialized knowledge to get rid of them).
The only reason to install this is to get practice cleaning up your browser.
