    "Great Program For PC Cleaning"

    February 23, 2010   |   By Help_Cleaning_My_PC

    Version: PC Clean 1.3

    Pros

    Easy to use and removes bad programs such as Adware.

    Doesn't clean out everything.

    Summary

    For freeware you really can't complain.

    I learnt most of what I know about pc cleaning from the website below:

    "Very Good Cleaner"

    July 25, 2009   |   By jwpoco

    Version: PC Clean 1.3

    Pros

    It's free, small, and it cleans adware from drives and registry. It has an easy-to-use interface. It lets you select BHOs, toolbars, startup programs, and ActiveX components to remove.

    Cons

    By default, it starts when Windows starts, but you can easily turn off that option.

    Summary

    I used PC-Clean to remove Mirar and GreatAdsForYou. It also cleaned my registry of some useless entries. It also empties My Recent Documents, Internet Explorer URL history, temporary Internet files, and Trashcan in one place.

    The installer also installs netpia.exe, a startup program which is unnecessary if you're not reporting to the software maker. PC-Clean itself can be used to remove netpia.exe from your startup programs.

    "Trojan Horse Generic10.AFZ being generated in folder"

    March 29, 2009   |   By KayaDrummer

    Version: PC Clean 1.3

    Pros

    Program is useful for deleting applications and processes not needed and for finding adware/spyware that other programs may not detect.

    Cons

    My new AVG Internet security program is detecting a Trojan Horse Generic10.AFZ which seems to be in the report folder of this program. I can't tell if it is an actual virus or just something that PC clean uses.

    Summary

    great free program if it isn't infecting my computer with a virus that seems to be undeterminable in the AVG vault of viruses.

    "both systems i used it on warned of a built in trojan"

    November 18, 2008   |   By stu54

    Version: PC Clean 1.3

    Pros

    it did find a few things on my system. easy to use and light on cpu.

    Cons

    possible built in trojan, a bit intrusive, dosent uninstall properly .

    Summary

    i tried it out on two systems and both av programs flashed up with a trojan during routine scans. that aside i find this program suspicious for a number of reasons. it always tries to pin itself to your start up menu even though you disable this in options. it does not come with a proper uninstall feature and when i tried to uninstall with revo it was very messy. it required a clean up with the registry keys and other files left over. this is very lazy programming and casts suspicion over the whole program. i understand that virus programs do not always get it right but i have tried it and several people at my college have tested it and all have said it contained a trojan.. its not really worth the effort to be honest.
