Editors' Review

+

SlimCleaner is a lightweight utility for removing all kinds of junk and broken files from your computer to help improve overall performance. Even inexperienced users will quickly get comfortable with this program's straightforward interface, and the combination of features included means you'll have all tools you want at your disposal at any time.

Pros

Lots of options: There are all kinds of tools included in this program. Of course, you can quickly scan and clean out broken files and other issues just like in most similar programs. You can also opt for the Autoclean feature, which combines scanning and cleaning, but that doesn't give you the ability to review the scan results before they are deleted. Beyond these functions, though, you'll also find Optimization tools, Disk tools, Windows tools, and features aimed at optimizing your system and browsing performance.

Startup Manager: One of the nicest features is the Startup Manager, which lets you see which programs on your computer are set to run on startup. From here, you can remove items you don't want to open automatically, and you can restore them as well at any time by referring to the Restore list located in the same tab.

Cons

Defragmenting shortfalls: The defragmenting feature included in this program is a nice idea, but it doesn't seem to do too much. It also takes quite a long time to complete even a relatively small amount of work; and while there is a Progress Bar to let you see how the work is going, there's no time associated with it, so it really doesn't mean too much.

Bottom Line

SlimCleaner is a good, free catchall utility for keeping your computer optimized and running smoothly. It offers a nice set of features. Not all of them are as effective as they could be, but as a package it gets the job done.

"AWESOME MAN!"

February 19, 2015

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Free 4.0.30878

Pros

I must say it got a little bit suspicious for a Tune Up Utility to be free AND with such great reviews, so I guessed it was kind of those apps that fix a problem and then tell you to buy the full product to fix the rest. BUT NOT THIS ONE! Oh yeah baby, all-in-one awesome app! It fixed almost every problem my computer could have plus it defragged the local disk, and the change was certain, it worked!

Cons

Not really, everything worked pretty good.

"It does what it says. Optimizes! It has many tools."

February 01, 2015  |  By pinkplaycat71

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Free 4.0.30878

Pros

It has many different tools to use that are available for free!

Cons

I wish they would make a duplicate file tool that is easy to use. Say you have a pic and its the original, then you have the edited copy, they you have copies that are uploaded to online backup files, and there are 2 other copies in other places that you think are necessary, like in Windows Photo Gallery....which ones do you get rid of??? Or files that are programs? or files that you are not even sure of if it is even safe to get rid of the file? there should be more detailed info on whether you can get rid of a duplicate and which one to get rid of!!!!!***???? Come on people help the common person who is just savvy say in photography but not the rest of computer science!!!

Summary

Alot of people who make these programs understand them and how to run them and what to delete and what to keep and how to fix their computer if they screw it up. But what about the average joe who needs these programs to, to help him or her have a stable running computer without duplicate files or junk on his or her computer. YOU ALL NEED TO START THINKING LIKE THE COMMON MAN OR WOMAN WHO DOESNT KNOW OR ISNT AS SAVVY WITH PROGRAMS LIKE THESE AND CANT MAKE THE DECISION ON WHAT FILE TO DELETE AND WHICH ONE TO KEEP!!!! THE PROGRAM NEEDS TO BE MORE DECISIVE ON WHICH FILE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT AND WHICH ONE CAN BE THROWN AWAY....BECAUSE SOMETIMES THERE ARE 2 FILES AND SOMETIMES THERE ARE 237 FILES THAT IT HAS FOUND....HOW DO I KNOW!!! IT HAS HAPPENED TO ME...SO OUT OF 237 FILES YOU TELL ME WHICH ONE, UNO, 1, AGAIN 1OUT OF 237 FILES AM I SUPPOSED TO KEEP OR DO I JUST LOOK AT IT AND GIVE UP LIKE I DID AND THEN GO SPEND MONEY I DONT HAVE TO TAKE MY COMPUTER TO A REPAIR SHOP AND GET RID OF YOUR PROGRAM AND GIVE IT NO STARS AND TELL EVERYONE IT SUCKS BECAUSE I JUST SPENT 150 TO $300 ON GETTING IT FIXED THE RIGHT WAY? Sincerely, C.B.
