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.

"Yeah, this is the real deal. Your PC is getting fixed!"

October 24, 2014  |  By Mid1Knight

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Free 4.0.30878

Pros

Runs fast comparatively
Intuitive
Gives you plenty options and controls
You can't get much better even if you paid for a product

Cons

Can't complain really it free, besides what isn't here you should go after the Plus version.

Summary

CCleaner is probably the bench mark, but it isn't better than this product. This tool is smarter, more intuitive, faster and has better options and controls. SlimCleaner is the next rung up on CCleaner and most other competitors.

"Meh meh meh"

September 02, 2014  |  By ChrisAllen CNET

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Free 4.0.30878

Pros

Useful if you have apps whose function you do not know

Cons

Like many defraggers, this doesn't REALLY defrag your hard disk. It reduces, but does not eliminate, file fragmentation, so your files aren't in as many pieces as before, but they're still in pieces. Worse, it does not relocate files to the beginning of the disk to speed access to them. It is no better than Windows' lame excuse for a defragger.

Summary

Jack of all trades, master of none. The sole unique feature, app identification and recommendation for removal, depends on user opinions, and the ones I read came down decisively on BOTH sides of EVERY app. Err, thanks!
