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.

"CCleaner is Better"

January 19, 2016  |  By jtomcoburn

2016-01-19 13:24:34  |  By jtomcoburn

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Free 4.0.30878

Pros

This has all the features you can do on Windows in a simple one program interface. It does a little more than CCleaner as it has a file shredder.

Cons

It is S-L-O-W. I mean it takes forever to run a scan. The one thing I thought was very odd is it seems to want to remove you browser add-ons. But I never actually completed a full scan so maybe at the end of the scan it gives you some options of what not to remove. The add-ons I have on Firefox I want to keep.

Summary

If CCleaner didn't exist I would probably keep this program. But I am going to remove it.

"a great tool"

January 18, 2016  |  By rockdoctor1

2016-01-18 18:57:16  |  By rockdoctor1

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Free 4.0.30878

Pros

Fast and dependable. Use it with CCleaner and/or Glary. Settings very clear, easy to run cleaning.

Cons

Some confusing tools. Also, destructive cleaning of Registry. Don't think you can undo it.

Summary

Never use only one software, but this one is pretty complete. I like that it is MS certified. Has yet to fail me. It is the quickest of my cleaners.

Good for walking through several levels of problems.

"As good as the Paid"

January 15, 2016  |  By toylocker

2016-01-15 03:16:53  |  By toylocker

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Free 4.0.30878

Pros

Give a deep cleaning that some of the others miss. I use several & they miss items that Slim catches. I've yet to find an item that it's missed.

Cons

None yet. I'll post when I do

Summary

To date it's as good as or better than it's paid counterparts. I intend to upgrade soon if this trend continues.

"Some this Brilliant.. and it's bloody free."

December 25, 2015  |  By Smally1964

2015-12-25 13:54:44  |  By Smally1964

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Free 4.0.30878

Pros

it's free and does everything better than software that costs quite a lot of money

Cons

anyone who leaves a con on this free and brilliant app should be locked up in a padded cell

Summary

Try it before wasting money on something that will turn out to be not as good and you will learn a valuable lesson. Something that seems to good to be true, just is.
