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!
