Editors' Review

SlimCleaner is a free utility that cleans, optimizes, repairs, and updates your PC based on the latest threats and issues. Antivirus programs have been doing that for years. But SlimCleaner pioneered the use of Cloud-based reporting and actual user feedback in designing its system cleaning and optimizing tools. SlimCleaner's unique color-coded Community Ratings system can help you decide which settings, programs, and processes are the best choice for your system by showing you at a glance what's safe, what's suspicious, and what's gotta go. It includes some useful disk tools as well as easy access to many of the quick fixes scattered throughout Windows. SlimCleaner can uninstall programs, too. But its main purpose is to use real-world analysis and feedback to help you keep your PC clean, lean, and safe.

SlimCleaner's colorful, tabbed interface doesn't seem much different from similar tools at first glance, but it actually gives you quick access to a lot of data, options, and settings. Tabs on the right side access each tool: Cleaner, Optimize, Software, Browsers, Hijack Log, Disk Tools, and Windows Tools. SlimCleaner takes pity on inexperienced users with one of the best Help sections we've seen, offering online help for member support, tutorials, and a full manual. Creating or signing in to your optional Slim Utilities account is easy (you can use Facebook) and enables access to Cloud resources.

SlimCleaner not only cleaned and optimized our system but also scanned our installed software, Web browsers, and other settings, identifying items as safe or in need of further attention. SlimCleaner's scans are extremely fast and err on the side of caution. For example, the Cleaner's Registry Section doesn't select anything by default, unlike the rest of the Cleaner's Sections: That keeps you from deleting the wrong things. The Optimize scan offered Cloud and AV data on each entry, as well as Community Ratings. We also ran each section separately by clicking the large Analyze button and also clicked the AutoClean button to let SlimCleaner's army of users decide for us (though you still have the last word on stuff like Web cookies). We like SlimCleaner and think you will too.

"One of the best on the net!"

October 04, 2012  |  By pro10

 |  Version: SlimCleaner 4.0.24022.7962

Pros

Awesome program, it is fast and complete for cleaning among other chores that you can demand of it. There are programs that try to copy it but they fail.This deserves the stars it gets.

Cons

If there are any "CONS" I hope they are all in jail. This program does not have any.

"Very effective, a bit hard to understand for beginners."

October 04, 2012  |  By kwc813

 |  Version: SlimCleaner 4.0.24022.7962

Pros

A LOT of options, very configurable, scans are in depth.

Cons

Might be complicated for a basic PC user.

Summary

Very much worth getting, and don't know that I'd even need to upgrade it.

"Wow... 'Best' Just Got Better"

October 04, 2012  |  By seventhragnarok

 |  Version: SlimCleaner 4.0.24022.7962

Pros

There are not many free utility suites that I haven't tried. SlimCleaner has ranked at the top in my book for a long time. 4.0 really put the polish on it. It's EVEN FASTER than before. The Updates tab does a great job at keeping your programs up-to-date (I would download them through other means, however) and the Intelliscan duplicate file finder...takes some time, but is the most accurate I have ever encountered. The disk defragger is a nice touch, as well. Biggest thing of all: my system is clearly faster.

Cons

I'm missing the old color format that SlimCleaner had; it was gorgeous, but, stacked against the increased performance of the utility suite, that would bump it down to only 49 stars. ;-)

Summary

Wow...the features of a paid utility suite, free of charge. Well built, stable, and has everything a great utility suite needs. I'm back, SlimCleaner, and I can't imagine ever leaving again.

What's new in version 4.0.24022.7962
  • GUI Updates and New Color Scheme: SlimCleaner 4.0 has numerous GUI framework updates as well as a new Black Color Scheme.
  • Intelligent Defrag: Allows users to run a personalized defrag based on their specific PC hardware. SlimCleaner will identify a PC's hardware configuration and allow users to start a defrag based on settings intelligently determined by SlimCleaner based on the PC's hardware.
  • Software Updater: Lets users check for updates to the software on their PC and install those updates directly from SlimCleaner. SlimCleaner checks and installs updates for tens of thousands of commonly used software programs. Software updates are downloaded from SlimWare Utilities' cloud, and all updates have been scanned for viruses using CloudScan technology, SlimWare Utilities' proprietary system of scanning files with multiple antivirus engines.
  • Solid-State Drive Optimization: The intelligent defrag system works with solid state drives by organizing files into logically sequential sectors while minimizing wear on the drive.
  • Duplicate Finder: Provides users with a quick and automated way to find and eliminate duplicate files that can clutter and slow down their hard drive. The duplicate file finder wipes out extra or unneeded copies of files -- including text files, videos, music files, etc. -- that can take up space. The feature includes settings to allow for different levels of analysis.
    The duplicate finder feature includes our new "IntelliMatch Scan" engine, which uses SlimWare Utilities' IntelliMatch technology to identify all duplicates. The engine works similar to a high-end anti-virus to read the various parameters of each file to accurately identify all duplicates across an unlimited amount of drives.
