Editors' review

The publisher of PureRa claims that it "removes files from your computer that other mainstream cleaning programs tend to oversee," by which we suppose they mean "overlook." Though it's neither the most attractive nor the most grammatically accurate program we've encountered, we found that it works well as a quick, no-nonsense way to rid your computer of unwanted files.

The program has an extremely simple and intuitive user interface. It lists a variety of file types and locations that you can check off for removal, including temporary files, Recycle Bin files, software distribution logs, WMI Logs, thumbnail caches, and more. User have the option of selecting individual file types for removal, or selecting the Check All option, which cleans them all in one fell swoop. We went through and selected each file type and location for cleaning, and what can we say? The little program performed as promised. Our one complaint with PureRa has to do with its log feature. It's supposed to create a log after each cleaning, but it only returned a blank Notepad page. The program doesn't offer any kind of Help feature; however, clicking the About button took us to the publisher's Web site, which offered an explanation for the different file types and locations in case you're unsure.

PureRa is completely free. It comes as a ZIP file, but it's accessible after extraction, with no formal installation required. Despite the lackluster log feature, we recommend it for all users in need of a capable cleaning utility.
