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.

"This Software Doesn't Show You What Its Cleaning."

October 22, 2012  |  By Several9920

 |  Version: SlimCleaner 4.0.24427.47284

Pros

Installed really fast and easy.

Cons

This software doesn't show you proof of what your actually about to clean or erase from your computer.

Summary

The way this software is set up one would never know what they are actually about to permanently delete from their computer. I clicked the registry icon and there was no scan feature, You just check what ever box you want cleaned from the registry. Then you click next and it says are you sure you want to permanently delete these registry entries. Before i delete anything i need to see exactly what it is i'm deleting rather than trust a software to be perfect. I made mistakes in the past deleting too much only to find out later i needed those files for the stable running of my computer. When it asked me are you sure you want to delete of course i chose no and then uninstalled Slim Cleaner. But there is also a chance that maybe this software was just to complicated for me and i had no idea what i was doing. If that be the case then i absolutely did the right thing by uninstalling. Using Slim Cleaner would be equal to letting a total stranger baby sit your children, Too many risks.
