PC Power Sweeper

CNET Editors' review

Jam-packed with features, PC Power Sweeper cleans up the tracks you leave behind when you run office applications or surf the Web. It scrubs out your Run history, Find history, Temporary folder, Recycle Bin, and Recent Application files. It erases recent Microsoft Office files, removes redundant DLLs, and securely deletes data. It also works with IE, Netscape, Mozilla, Opera, and AOL Web browsers and many popular chat programs. Plug-ins let you eradicate temporary files created by third-party applications, and you also can create plug-ins of your own. The intuitive interface provides separate tabs for typed URLs, the history, the cache, and cookies. Unfortunately, the trial only allows you to use the program 10 times, but that's enough to appreciate its ease of use and impressive output. This is a good choice for those who demand meticulous PC cleanup.

    "More like PC Power Flush"

    October 23, 2007  |   By lf3177

    Version: PC Power Sweeper 2.1

    Pros

    Even though the log said shreding (sic) file, it really didn't and I was able to recover most of my files (+90%). Thank you file scavenger!

    Cons

    It didn't just "clean up" my tracks from using programs or surfing the net. It wiped clean every single file on my hard drive: doc, xls, pdf, mpg, mp3, avi; it even deleted icons off my start menu. If it wasn't a program, it was wiped clean. What the hell?! Two emails to tech support yielded no response. Thanks jerk off s.

    "Same install trouble"

    June 16, 2007  |   By kdsdata

    Version: PC Power Sweeper 2.1

    Pros

    None. The GUI is too "MP3 player" like. Too tacky. This is a program for serious work in the computer. I don't like looking for things that may or may not be buttons. When cleaning up with a program like this, there is no second chance before "it's" gone.

    Cons

    I used Ashampoo Install Monitor to install the program. It let me ignore the install errors. The program did start without the erroneous DLLs, but I sure wouldn't want to use any of the features, knowing that somewhere along the process it may hang because a DLL is missing. Luckily my Ashampoo Uninstall got rid of it.

    April 27, 2007  |   By obscurination

    Version: PC Power Sweeper 2.1

    Pros

    absolutely none whatsoever since it does not work whatsoever..

    Cons

    I went to install the free version and when it came up to the part where it was at the end, it came up a error and this is what it said..

    c:\windows\system32\flash.ocx

    unable to register the dll/oxc: DllRegisterServer failed; code 0X800280IC <-- either a capital I or L. not sure xD.

    but yeah I am a bit angry that I couldn't get it to work and I wanted to try this so called grand program people speak of..
