Editors' review

It's hardly uncommon to stumble upon Web sites that leave you feeling like you need to take a shower, but keeping your PC clean and free of junk files, invalid registry entries, and other issues pays off in not only enhanced security but also increased performance. Add in a variety of tweaks, tune-ups, and other system utilities and you have a versatile PC toolkit. That's what you get with Arafasoft's PC Shower 2011. It's a free bundle of useful tools for cleaning and tuning your PC. Unlike many free versions of premium tools, it actually cleans what it finds without requiring paid upgrades.

PC Shower 2011 bundles several tools, including Registry Cleaner, Internet Cleaner, and Disk Cleaner. Each tool offers plenty of information about what it's doing and lets you deselect any item. The registry scan is thorough. Since registry cleaners can cause problems if used carelessly, we carefully reviewed the scan's findings. Seeing no red flags, we proceeded with the cleaning, though we were much relieved when the program automatically backed up our registry before doing the job. The disk scanner found a variety of junk files, mostly in our browser and temporary file caches. Again, the scan displayed a lot of information and gave us the opportunity to deselect items, and it did its job quickly. PC Shower packs in many other tools common to similar packages, including a broken-shortcut scanner, startup tuner, disk checker, and uninstaller. We could also enable password protection and change the interface language to several choices. We didn't try the Turbo Booster feature, which temporarily shuts down background processes and dedicates maximum resources to the CPU and RAM for gaming and other high-performance applications.

PC Shower 2011's free tools are comparable in power to some premium tools we've tried, yet they offer enough information and options to avoid the problems that can arise when free tools delete files and registry items indiscriminately. If we have a complaint about the program, it's that the interface is a bit too busy and could use some design direction, and that the translations sometimes come up short. But we have no problem recommending it to all users.

    "Potential but get out your checkbook!"

    Version: PC Shower 2014 1.52

    Pros

    What a thorough, impressive scan! Very long, over an hour. Must be finding many events to report? If only ..

    Cons

    It runs for upwards of an hour, maybe much more and when the time finally arrives, guess what? The thousands of problems, etc, found: If you want to fix them, must upgrade. If the free version fixes anything, it is very minor stuff any utility sweeper could clean.

    Summary

    If only the so-called free version stated up front that nothing is free, no free lunch, etc. Then it looks as though it MIGHT be a worthy utility although it had not stopped running after almost 90 minutes so I cannot say it was not buggy having had to stop it on my own.
